Word Fun was developed in conjuction with the Children's Television Workshop, and features three different word based educational games. The games are:Crosswords:
This game is similar to Scrabble. Each player is given seven letters from which they need to form words on the game board. On each turn the player can create words either horizontally or vertically, and must use one (or more) of the existing letters on the board. Points are earned depending on the word created, and at the end of 20 turns the player with the most points wins!Letter Hunt:
In this game each player controls a monkey in a letter forest. Each monkey must collect letters from the forest to spell three words within the given time limit. When both monkeys are complete, points are awarded for the words spelled and the highest score wins!Word Rockets:
In this game the players control a rocket capable of collecting and shooting vowels upwards. On the top of the screen, various words which are missing vowels will float by and each player needs to try to fire an appropriate vowel into the empty space. The first player who can complete 50 words wins!

When the Intellivision II came out, Electric Company Word Fun was found not to work with the new version of the system. Mattel had an offer to exchange the non-working Electric Company Word Fun with any game the consumer wanted. A group of teenagers took advantage of this and bought out the entire local supply of now bargain-priced Electric Company Word Fun cartridges and exchanged them for brand new cartridges of their choice.
