Word Match Game

This is a great game program written by fellow MVP Bernie Deitrick. You get a box of letters from which you try to find as many words as you can. It tells you how many words there are and has an option to solve it. You can also use a custom dictionary instead of the standard one. Check it out.

  1. Sh%t…

    Gotta hate internet caffes and their firewalls… “this site is blocked by pornography”. Altough the site opens just fine, can’t get to the file… makes total sense, right ?

  2. Pretty cool, but the logic for determining words seems to be lacking. First puzzle I did, I entered 12 words (there were reportedly 100 to find), and of those that I entered, it only matched 6.

    These weren’t big words, either (that it didn’t find): cat, late, gate, state, coat, steal. I’ll have to look at the code and see if I can even understand it enough to try and improve upon it.

    Overall, very cool.

  3. Okay, I think I was confused about the rules of the game. Someone mentioned that you can only move from one letter of the word to another by using those letters adjacent to your current letter. Confusing when worded like that, but it makes the results seem okay.

    I guess I don’t know that much about word games.

    SOSE
    KSEC
    THIT

    Using this configuration, it lists 89 words, but does not include TISK. So, I added to the dictionary, but doesn’t seem to update properly.

    Maybe I am missing something. (At my age, nothing surprises me!)
