How to play
Slide tiles with arrow keys or swipes.
Only real words can be spelled.
Slide direction determines letter order.
What words are allowed?
  • There are two word lists available, one that only has commonly known words, and the other that has pretty much every word you can think of. Oddly enough, the "Common" word list is often harder, because with the "All" list you will form words a lot more often, even though you've never heard of half of them. Still, if you're using the "All" list, it can be frustrating if you get a fragment like "jd", because most people won't know that it only occurs in the word slojd! Note that commonly known doesn't mean the same thing as commonly used. Some words, such as compartmentalization aren't used very often, but most people would recognize the word when they saw it, and for that reason it is allowed even if you're using the "Common" list.
  • Most swear words are allowed, but a select few are not.
  • Very offensive words, such as racial slurs are excluded (at least, all the ones we could find). This basically means words that have been used abusively to insult people of a particular group.
  • Proper nouns, contractions, hyphenated words, and anything that contains symbols other than lowercase letters are not accepted.
Scoring
  • Only completed words count towards your score.
  • Each word counts only once per game unless it cannot be used to form a larger word. If you can get a word like that twice it deserves to be scored again, and also, if it didn't disappear you'd be stuck with that tile forever.
  • One letter words are not counted.
  • Longer words are worth more. Two letter words are worth 1 point, and each additional letter makes the word worth twice as much. For example: Three letter words are worth 2 points. Four letter words are worth 4 points. Ten letter words are worth 256 points. If you can get a 22 letter word, that would be worth 1,048,568 points!! Good luck with that one.
