Scripps Spelling Bee presents a variety of ways to practice spelling through three modes: Championship, Practice and Mini-Games. The Championship mode allows players to progress through a revised version of the tournament that is broadcasted on ABC and ESPN each year. The Practice area lets players go through a spelling bee without the pressure of points or elimination and adds a few bonuses along the way. The Mini-Games section houses a variety of fun spelling and word puzzles, such as Word Memory, Word Maze and Word Search. Progress throughout the game is tracked in the Trophy Case, which keeps track of scores and prizes, as well as unlocks special themes and icons for the game.
