I actually create most of the activities and games for my word study centers myself. I often get ideas from teacher resource books or online games and recreate them using Microsoft Word or Print Shop. I also think of favorite card games or board games (Go Fish, Uno, Sorry, Candyland, etc.) and try to change the game in a way that it can work for learning a specific spelling pattern.
Scholastic has some great resource books for center games. Here is a link to their teacher store: http://shop.scholastic.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/StoreCatalogDisplay?URL=StoreCatalogDisplay&storeId=10001&store=TS&jspStoreDir=TeacherStore&src=BTB000000N0010100000&langId=-1&catalogId=10002
