    Discussion for WORDS WITH AQA game, do you think it's hard or easy?
    Definitely the easiest preliminary material released by AQA in my opinion. However, the material is quite boring/stale tbh.

    The code is very easy, and it only has 1 class. But this means they are going to make us create more classes

    What do you mean?
    The file aqawords contains some of the words in English language (it doesn't include acronyms, and some of the words are confusing e.g. zzz)
    These words are loaded to AllowedWords (a 1D list) when the game starts, this happens in LoadAllowedWords().
    AllowedWords list is then used to check if the input of the player is a word that exists and not random letters from the hand. This occurs in CheckWordIsValid()

    It's essentially a slightly weirder version of Words with Friends. Have you not got the Preliminary Material? It explains it very clearly in my opinion in there

    Here is the explanation of the code as I promised, it's the first time I am doing this and I didn't have much time to check it so i'm sorry if there are mistakes (tell me the mistakes). I tried to explain as much as I could but some parts were to easy and others were too long (loops). If you need me to explain any part in more detail please ask. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year !!

    Guys, I'm missing the aqa.words.txt file, our teacher missed it out when emailing the prelim material to us.
    Could someone please post just that file here, I can't seem to find it elsewhere.

    Thanks.
