230. yeah, this could definitely get addictive. curious what the writers, lit majors, etc would get.

how i missed 'cherry' is beyond me.

ok, first goal is to break 300...

and this also tests your ability to spell and type quickly. took way too long to figure out how to spell 'baguette'.

235. i missed 'mug'. oh the horror...

holy f:
Rank\tUsername\tWord accuracy (%)\tTotal points\tGames played\tCorrect words
1\tdmwfender\t99.1\t255750\t183\t12228
(ok, at first i thought it was a single game...it's 183 games for an average of 66 words a game...still awesome)

245 first time, but the game glitched on me with 20 seconds left. Trying again.

Weird, I can almost never get through a game. It always gives me connection or database errors when I get to the mid 200s.

edit: finally got through a whole game! 430, wohooo.

It seems laggy whenever my score gets high.

Edit: 1090 - before the game froze up on me with ~20 seconds left.

I answered the first two within less than ten seconds and then the stupid game just froze on me.

Frozen on me too. Takes time away without giving you the next word for awhile and then just stopped working entirely.

game sucks. too buggy. i try to play but the time just sucks away while i wait for the next word. often doesn't take my word, either, until I delete and type again 2 or 3 times.
