Games, such as Mahjong, Solitaire, and Blackjack, are available for your Kindle Paperwhite. Some people are purists and believe that the Kindle Paperwhite should be used only for reading; others like having the option of playing a game every now and then.

Given that many games are offered for free or put on sale on a regular basis, go ahead and download one and see what you think. We’ve become enamored with Every Word, an anagram-type word game developed by Amazon. The touchscreen on the Kindle Paperwhite is ideal for playing this game.

In general, games are played individually, so wireless doesn’t need to be on to play a game.

Games can’t be sampled — if you’re interested in playing Blackjack, you need to buy it. Therefore, it’s a good idea to read the reviews posted at Amazon to decide whether the format and method of playing will be acceptable to you.

Not all the Kindle games that are for sale at Amazon work on the Kindle Paperwhite. Make sure that you see the name of your Kindle Paperwhite in the Deliver To drop-down list (under the Buy Now button) before making a purchase.

Kindle content, including games, can be returned within seven days for a refund. You can return e-books through Manage Your Kindle at your Amazon account. To return games, however, you must contact customer service directly; you can’t process a return for a game from your Kindle Paperwhite or from your Kindle account at Amazon.
