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.


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

Why I can't play the game, I tried to click play and nothing happens.

Hi Amr1234,

Sorry to hear that you are having problems playing. I've just tested the game and it is working OK for me, so perhaps it was a temporary problem. If you still cannot play, try using a different device or browser and see if it works there. Good luck!

Hello Kdh,

I'll have to check with our technical team about that. I'll let you know when I hear back from them, but they are quite busy right now so I'm afraid it may be some time.

All the best,
