Are you a vocabulary guru? Try this.

Use given characters to form word.
Your score will be the position of the word in word frequency list. That is, you'll score 7 for word "that", and 7469 for word "deer".

The rarer the word, the higher the score.

For each game, there are at least two possible words, with one has higher score.

Want to dig out something from over 86,000 words? You'll find out lots of THINGS that you never think to be a word before. And, just by one tap, the explanation of the word is shown to you (need Internet access).

The least length of word is 4 (there're too much abbreviation words with 2 or 3 characters), and this limit will increase when you get level-up.

At the beginning, only the first 5000 words in word frequency list is open to you (words beyond this range can still appear with a chance). With level-up, you'll unlock more words.

Have fun.

(Have tested on iOS4.)
