Chicktionary Coop is a free tablet word game that allows players to combine brainpower and solve shared puzzles. Players can earn virtual currency in the form of "Gold Eggs" and bring their chicken coop to life by purchasing virtual goods and clothing for the seven famous chickens and their ever-changing seven letters.

"We're thrilled to announce the launch of multiplayer Chicktionary Coop both to our loyal fans and to new users," says John Cain, Blockdot President.
