Plates Across America Game

For Immediate Release: September 10, 2020

Plates Across America™: A new travel-themed word game.

A family-developed, privacy-respecting on-line game.

Austin, Texas, September 10, 2020 -- POMDP, Inc. today announced the availability of a new on-line word puzzle game with a travel theme. It is now available at https://platesacrossamerica.com/. The game has been conceived, designed and developed by a family-based company (wife, husband and daughter) with a focus and commitment to protect people's privacy and respect their inbox. The family is trying to compete in a market dominated by large companies that can provided "free" games by brokering in secretly collected user data. The company uses no tracking pixels, emails are always opt-in and they are committed to not sharing any data with third party companies.

The game combines solving license plate letter puzzles with traveling across the United States along some of its most famous routes. The game provides entertainment for all ages and skills since it has a simple set of rules that makes it easy to learn, but there are many variations which make it hard to master. Plates Across America™ is a web-based game with a responsive design that allows it to be played on any device with a web browser. It can also be installed as a progressive web application (PWA).

The family behind Plates Across America™ talks about how the rules and game came to be:

    "Whenever we traveled, we would play this game with the letters on the licenses plates we saw. We evolved the rules over time to the point where they had become quite sophisticated. By itself, the word game was fun, but when we struck on the idea of the traveling theme in an on-line game, then we knew we were on to something that many people would enjoy."

This is the family's first attempt at creating a game, but they say that is has been exciting, educational and rewarding. With their daughter living on a different continent, it has also helped them stay connected and sane while coping with the pandemic restrictions.

Plates Across America™ provides the following:

  • Two games in one: a single player travel game and a two-player race game.
  • Over 14,000 different word puzzles and over 8 million possible answers.
  • Dozens of famous American routes to choose from.
  • Personalized pages for tracking all your stats and your best routes scores.
  • Leader boards and top scores for each game route and overall best game statistics.
