2. Play Free Bookworm Game PopCap Online for PC
At the time of first writing this post, the best place I’d found to play Bookworm online free was on PopCap’s own website. However, since then they’ve been acquired by Electronic Arts Inc and their own website has gone.

Another way you can play Bookworm online now, with no download required is at pogo.com (owned by Electronic Arts). You will need to register – with your country, date of birth, email and password etc. Once you’ve registered, you can play Bookworm HD for FREE.

Booooooo. How could they do this to all the bookworm players of the world. Boooo to you EA Games. Bring bookworm back to all us bookworm junkies.
Hi, I have now found another way to play Bookworm online (1 week free trial). See my post above for details 🙂
Bring Bookworm BACK !!!!
Hi Janet, Electronic Arts Inc. own PopCap’s Bookworm games. You could try contacting them and see what they say?
I just want to play bookworm without downloading and cant seem to find a website to play
Hi Ella, unfortunately Electronic Arts Inc. who own PopCap’s games now, decided to remove the free online Bookworm game on all sites where it was previously available, including PopCap’s website. 🙁
where is the button to download bookworm and start playing it online for free?
Hi Marie, thanks for the question. At the time I wrote this post – back in 2011, there was a free Bookworm game on PopCap’s website.
However since then PopCap Games has been bought by EA Games. So PopCap’s own website has gone, along with their free online games including the Bookworm game 🙁
I’ve now included this update in the post above.
