The definition of Quarrel is both a square-headed projectile specifically for use in crossbows, and a verbal argument between antagonists. At first glance, applying a word that has both martial and linguistic connotations is a clever play. The same...

Quarrel is a bright idea hamstrung by a series of unfortunate design flaws, lack of offline multiplayer, balancing issues, and a desperate need to remain inoffensive.

Winning battles one letter at a time.

Multiplayer adds a new level of competition, challenge mode adds variety to the usual matches, picking letters is extremely easy with a gamepad

Multiplayer matches can turn into a lot of waiting with nothing to do, Xbox Live avatars not as charming as the iOS character models, some dictionary wonkiness

Taking over the world one anagram at a time is well worth $5 and bits and pieces of your time.

Good thing Quarrel has custom match settings; tuning how (and how long) you play is the best way to experience this entertaining puzzle competition. Its strategy is just complex enough to demand some skill, and breaking down words is right up every...
