A NEW GAME TO PONDER???

I have pondered on the possibilities of Anagrams, or the type of word puzzle where you find as many words as you can from one long word like "helicopter", "triangles", "shortbread", etc etc. Usual rules are more'n four letters, no pluralization, no foreign words kinda thing. I guess you would be madly typing in as many words are you could discern from the given word in a set time-frame??? Perhaps the major word could be scrambled, and bonus points for unscrambling it? Hmmmm....some food for thought, perhaps? Whatcha think?

It sounds like fun. My daughter has an anagram game she plays once in a while with some clucking chickens that gives you a word, then you fill a grid with new word. I wonder if it is possible to figure a way to avoid making a game like this into something that is not a cheater vs. non-cheater thing. I suspected that anagram finders exist online, and sure enough, there are several. In just a matter of seconds I found 408 words I can make from helicopter. Using that would lower the game to just a cut and paste-a-thon.

Are you volunteering to check all the answers and referee the disputes over whether 'zarf' is really a word?

I like the game, but I'm not sure how well it would work on a points system.

Perhaps the quiz could list 10 possible combinations & the test is to see how long it would take to guess them all.

With all the talk about cheating (or utilizing your rescources as I term it) in regards to the Word Puzzles i don't think it is that good an idea.
There are hundreds of programs that will search anagrams for you.
It would be a plethora of perfect scores and an avalanche of accusations.
Hmmm maybe an alliteration game?

Heuretic hardware?
Woeful webbots?

Maybe an alliteration WordPuzzle. I do love anagrams, though.
