(Make A Word)
Make a Word is a word game in which you are presented a 3 by 3 matrix of letters. From these letters
you are to make as many words as possible in 2 minutes using any combination of the letters. Letters may be used as many
times as necessary, or not at all. Words must be 3 to 10 letters in length, and must be real words
( No acronyms, proper nouns, or slang )
Scoring is as follows:
10 points for each real word in the list
2 point bonus for 4-letter real words
5 point bonus for 5-letter real words
10 point bonus for 6-letter real words
20 point bonus for 7-letter real words
50 point bonus for 8- to 10-letter real words
1 point deduction for each letter in a non-real word
Duplicate words are not permitted
Currently there are over two-hundred 3x3 matrices, and each has its own high-score list. As the game grows in popularity, more matrices will be added.
UPDATE (30 Nov 2006) Over 100 new puzzles have been added. Please enjoy!
