Arena Mode is the last mode unlocked after finishing Bookworm Adventures.


The player must fight all the bosses from previous chapters without turns. There is a time limit on the screen, which causes the boss to attack during the fight. Remember that you can't use potions, scramble words, or attack enemies when an enemy is attacking. As soon as you defeat the last boss, you will be ranked on the hall of fame. Defeating five bosses causes Moxie to appear and you will be given one of each potion.

If you get defeated by a boss, you will automatically lose. However, you will be ranked on the hall of fame.

If you win or lose, you will the Tome of Knowledge of how many bosses have been defeated with your best time.
