How many points can you get in three minutes? Longer words score more points!

Playing Rules

You are given a random assortment of 16 letters in a 4x4 grid and are set a time limit of 3 minutes. In that time you must spell as many words as possible. The words, of course must be real words, spelt correctly as checked against the word list of 52,000 words and must contain between 3 and 7 letters. A letter cannot be used twice in the same word.

When forming your word, you can select letters from any position as long as you follow the spelling order.

Scoring

Points are awarded depending on the number of letters in the word (the "Qu" cube counts as two letters).

3 letters = 1 point 4 letters = 2 points 5 letters = 3 points
6 letters = 4 points 7 letters = 7 points

the game is awesome, but there are few issues.

there are many correct words that can't be put.

and the clicking is really bad on the letters, it's not well timed

Hi omarmihawk,

Thank you for the helpful feedback. If we update the game in future, we will try to fix these issues.

Best wishes,

Jonathan

I love the game. I discovered it through school, because we are making a competition of who can find the most words. One can type some German words and some englisch words don't work.
