Word game + Solitaire. You need to clear the board by doing 5 letter words.

  •  A-Z       = To form words
  •  CTRL+Z    = UNDO
  •  CTRL+Y    = REDO
  •  RETURN    = Input word
  •  BACKSPACE = Erase letter

(For what ever reason keyboard inputs aren't working with the javascript version. You can download the desktop version to get those to work)

Great concept and great execution!

I love the design choices here - all of them are solid. Requiring five-letter words makes it a lot harder than a hypothetical four-letter version of this game, so I had to think ahead and plan. Planning was made easier because instead of normal Solitaire rules where the covered cards are hidden, they're all laid out for you. I gotta say, I'm impressed with how much emergent microstrategy this super simple game has - I realized that I should try to empty the large columns early to retain more choices in the endgame. I planned around the K, the CC, and the A-heavy endgame. I thought long and hard before using my valuable S's.

And it was definitely worth it for the "reward" - I love touches like that at the end of a game. You didn't have to, but you did, and I appreciated it.

Thank you very much for the kind words. I'm glad you enjoyed the game and got to see the end animations :)
