Word Poker is a word game that was released on April 5, 2003. This game was created by Captain Roundhoof in order to teach his pirate crew grammar and spelling. In this game, players are given sets of letters and they must make as many words as they can with these letters within a time limit.

How to play[edit]

The game is played over six rounds. At the begin of each round, the player will be presented with a set of eight letters. The player will then have 90 seconds to create as many words using the provided letters as they can. Words must be at least three letters long to count, and proper nouns and profanity are not accepted. Each provided letter can only be used once per word. To enter a word, the player simply needs to type the word. As the player types the word, the letters from the top of the screen will move into the typing area show on the left side of the game screen. The player can use the backspace key to remove letters from their typed word. Once a player has finished typing their word, they can either press the enter button on their keyboard or click the Enter button on the game screen to submit their word. If their word is accepted, it will be added to the list of words displayed on the right side of the game screen.

At the end of each round, the player must pick a scoring category for their list of words. The amount of points that a player receives depends on which category that they pick. Each scoring category can only be used once per game:

  • 4 points for each three-letter word
