FAQ

These words aren't really words / A common word is not included.

There are a great many words in use in the English language and I cannot hope to please everyone as to their definition of what is a word or not. The 2 dictionaries offered to use are official word lists used in tournament Scrabble. I think if anyone knows whether a word should be in or out of a game like this then it's these guys.

INSTRUCTIONS

Select letters from the 'Rack' in the middle of the screen to form a word of 3 or more letters.

If the word is listed in the dictionary and the word hasn't already been used on the level then the word is accepted. The word will be added to an area at the bottom of the screen for reference.

If you can't find any more words from the rack then advance to the next level and receive new letters.

The more words you find on any one level the higher the score you get for that word. This score is reset when advancing to a new level so it pays to find as many words as possible on any given level.

The more letters a word contains the more time is added to your game for finding the word.

There are a number of achievements to complete outside the normal rules of the game. These include having a particularly good run of words within a level, having consistently good runs over a number of levels, and finding a set number of words in each word length group.

There is a small bonus added to you time when you start a new game based on the number of achievements you have completed.

Will appeal to Scrabble players to crossword solvers. Uses professional tournament word lists (CSW12 / TWL06), US and UK spellings.

    GAME TOO SLOW. ALSO ONCE YOU FIND WORDS THEY ARE IN NOT ALPHABETICAL ORDER SO U CAN SEE QUICKLY WHICH WORDS YOU'VE ALREADY FOUND.

    Simple but challenging. Can be played by people of all ages and vocabulary levels. I would recommend it. Having the targets for the number of 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7 letter words is very helpful as it gives an indication of how well you are doing while you are playing.

    1. The "next" button is too close to the "submit" button, making it too easy to end the game before you intended. 2. There should be an option to put up the last word entered so you can more quickly enter the same word with an "s" or "ed" etc.
