Why bother with a post grad? Are they even worth it? Have your say! 26-10-2016

    Anyone play? Really simple premise:

    4x4 grid, each tile is a letter. You have to trace your finger across the screen, connecting letters, to find as many words within 2 minutes as possible. After each match there's a 42 second break during which you find out what words you got and what words you could've had, then another screen pops up with the leaderboards and where you ranked in relation to other people.

    Each letter has a point value, the more letters in your word the more points you get (unless you use special tiles or high-value tiles like Q and Z).
    Sometimes there are games where every word (regardless of length) is worth 13 points, sometimes there are special tiles worth anywhere between 10 and 20 points (usually they'll have 2 letters on, you can make a word using either but not both), sometimes they'll be other special games too (they're on rotation, haven't figured out what it is yet but I know that the 13 point game happens at least once an hour, usually either on the hour or at half past, but it varies) that have themes, like "names of plants" and stuff.

    You can play using your Live gamertag, your Facebook login, or just play as guest.

    Given that it's free, and it's a great time killer, you could do a lot worse.

    Depending on the time of day, there's anywhere between 300-1000 people playing.

    So... anyone play?
    If so, where do you usually rank?

    Add me as a "frenemy" if you do: DrunkPunx420
    On a normal day you'll find me in the top 10% of people ranked... on a good day I'll be in the top 15 ranked.
