Tribune Launches Jumble Word Puzzle Site at Jumble.com 

Tribune Launches Jumble Word Puzzle Site at Jumble.comURL: http://www.jumble.com 

Fans of the incredibly popular Jumble® puzzle in print now have a website where they can play eight different interactive daily Jumble games and download a Jumble puzzle pack to their mobile phones http://www.jumble.com

Jumble.com is the new flagship site for "everything Jumble." The site also offers a Jumble shopping
experience where fans can buy books, board games and other puzzle and game products. Later this spring, Jumble.com will feature a Jumble "Player's Forum" and a blog where Jumble creators David Hoyt, Mike Argirion and Jeff Knurek discuss classic and new Jumble games in print, online, and on mobile. 

"Jumble.com offers Jumble fans a destination for all things Jumble," said Steve Tippie, VP Licensing at Tribune Media Services (TMS), which owns the brand and licenses Jumble products. "Jumble has been the most popular and most syndicated word puzzle in newspapers for more than fifty years and has a fanatical player base in print. In the last ten months, TMS and our game development and publishing partners uClick have created interactive and mobile versions of the popular newspaper puzzles-Daily Jumble, Jumble for Kids and Jumble Crosswords -- and five all-new Jumble-themed games, with more to come." 

The Daily Jumble, Jumble for Kids and Jumble Crosswords interactive and mobile games feature the same daily clues and answers found in more than 600 newspapers in the United States and abroad.

The new games are: 

--  Jumble Word Vault -- requires unscrambling words using the dials on a bank vault and offers nested vaults, each getting more difficult. 
--  Jumble Solitaire -- combines the phenomenally successful interactive solitaire game play with Jumble -- uses letters and scrambled words instead of card suits. 
--  Jumpin' Jumble -- the thinking person's game of checkers requires the player to build word chains by jumping board squares. 
--  Jumble Jong -- adds a Jumble twist to the popular game of Mah Jong. 
--  Word Web -- players build words on a spider's web while trying to fit in new letters that drop onto the web and beat the clock. 

Adds Tippie, "Jumble's success has inspired us to create new game and puzzle lines under the 'From
the People Who Bring You Jumble' tagline. We've got a top team of puzzle and game inventors and
excellent technology and marketing partners to help us turbo charge the Jumble brand." 

Jumble® : That Scrambled Word Game was launched in June 1954. The puzzle was created by Bob Lee
(the word puzzles) and Henri Arnold (the cartoons). It quickly became the leading word puzzle in
newspapers after the daily crossword puzzle and has kept its position at the top since. More than 60
million people in over 600 newspapers in the United States and Canada have access to Jumble every
day. It is also in English-language newspapers in other parts of the world.
