I suspect it's theoretically possible, with exactly the right board. I'm not sure it ever happens in practice. The problem is, almost every board has some very obscure low-probability words, ones...

Boards have a 75-word minimum (it's easy to generate boards with fewer than that, so I'm pretty sure about this restriction). I think it must be nearly impossible on 5x5 to find all the words, and...

OK, here's the month of June! I'm sure you noticed how all the old formatting got broken, which I think was a side effect of the ban on links. So, here is an abbreviated list of best games for the...

Awesome achievement!

I pay some attention, but I've played on and off for years, with enough total games that the average is slow to change. I pay more attention to my averages over the last couple...

Great job! I think I've had two games above 1000, but I doubt I'll be able to best your high score this month. My play's improving slowly, but a lot of other people seem to be stepping it up even...

I was so excited for COUNTERNUMPTINESSES, or even ANTINUMPTION, but sadly NUMPTY/NUMPTIES are the only inflections in any dictionary list I have (and believe me, I've accumulated a lot of them)....

The only setting I'm aware of on the web site itself is about whether you tell it to dump you into 4x4 or 5x5 automatically. The browser does keep track of whether you allow flash site-by-site, and...
