How can you go from a word like ‘morbid’ to a word like ‘ecstatic’? Or from ‘fastidious’ to ‘vigil’?

Synonymy is a game of finding the paths between random words through their network of synonyms. By taking the synonym of a word, and then a synonym of that synonym, and so on, you can ultimately arrive at any other word in the English language. (more languages forthcoming!)


A lite version of the game with ads and restrictions on multiplayer and difficulty settings. The Full Game supports unrestricted multiplayer, and weekly challenges in which users can compete globally on set start and end words. Every time a path is uncovered by a user, it is tweeted from @synonymygame and posted to our Facebook page.

Synonymy is the first game by filmmaker Christopher Cinq-Mars Jarvis and is narrated by world-renowned author and biologist, Richard Dawkins.

All profits go to various charitable, education-based foundations.

** Works best using iPhone 5/iPad 2 or later and iOS8. Requires iOS7 or later. The game seems to work on older devices but performance might suffer. Please address any concerns to

A visualization of the game's network can be seen here -- -- In order to compute relative distance, all synonyms were mapped using 3d graphing software, as if each word were a planet that had a gravitational pull proportional to its number of relationships to other nodes. Above is a 2D representation of that model, a 40,000 x 40,000 image.

Whats new

Layered display Impossible to play, one display is overlaid by the next, and the next, they never disappear. 3-4 screens in it looks like spaghetti!

Tom Cahill

amazingly fun and addictive I play all the time!

Carol Glidden

fun ... and it requires thinking! Upgrading.

Ryan Rondon

Could use more visuals. Cool brain game. 'Could use a visual for the graph of synonyms, I think. Plus an easier way to backtrack out of a branch.

Aaron Alexander

Cooldown period? I enjoy the game, but have an issue where there is a loooong 'loading' time between games. Is this normal, and does it go away with paid version?

Chris Barnes

Good, but flaky Great game but tends to freeze or crash after displaying an ad.

lee underwood

Broken Sounds like a great game. Maybe invest some time in making it work on Android before releasing it next time?

Kristian Blackburn

Doesn't work Doesn't even last one round before crashing. Looks like a great game if it worked

Eric Miles

fantastically well done. 5 stars! One of the few games that challenges me mentally while providing simultaneous entertainment. One of the few games that has me coming back for more.

Vocab and Thinking Process Builder Not just that you learn words, but also think ahead to what other options can lead to the original word, almost like a master Chess player or a detective. Building, deducing, sustaining links is what the game of LIFE is about too. :)

Gr8 Very good i buy

Danny Smith

Nice idea but buggy Many screens don't respond, and sometimes end up on top of each other. Maybe if the bugs in the free version were fixed I'd consider the paid version it constantly nags about.

Gart Allison

Great game, would be 5 stars and a purchase but crashes too much. Also seems to be a graphical hog for such a simple concept. Shame.

Zephon W.

Good intentions . . . Good intentions, noble idea . . . Broken mechanics, and crashes all too often for it to even function to be called . . . well, functional.

Genevieve Day

Great App Like the way it is built.Happy with this app. Thanks

Nelson Robison

Love it In the world there are many apps few earn my 5 star rating. The reason this app does, as a writer, words are my source and produce. This app helps me connect disparate words in a coherent manner. It will help anyone gain a better understanding of the English language. The only knock I have is exiting the app, I can't find the exit tab or whatever passes for an exit mode.

Tanim Istiaque

Works best on iphone 5 Copy pasta and lazy, no wonder why people are having so many issues with the game

Lauren Jones

Doesn't get past the title screen I would have rated this four stars based on playing it on my old phone (samsung galaxy s3 mini) (it was sometimes slow but it worked well) but having reinstalled it on my new phone (samsung j5), it goes through loading and booting and then just doesn't respond once it gets to the start screen. I have uninstalled and reinstalled but there's no change.

Archie Iqbal

Couldn't recommend it more. Tough but Fair Takes awhile to get the hang of it, but it's a blast when you do.

Elliot Hooper

Hardest Word Game Around Hope you like a challenge! Or you're masochistic.

Declan Rogers

Not for everyone but I'd recommend you try it. Incredibly Addicting Once I start I can't stop for at least an hour.

James Osborne

Gets old fast This really is a good game but the novelty wears off pretty quickly Nice experience Ok full disclosure, I don't so much play this game as just randomly veg out and go through synonyms until I get lucky.

Philipp Vogler

Makes my head hurt. Should probably stop? Practice English Best way to keep learning english.

Ewan Riley
