HoneyCombHoneyComb is a word search race inspired by the classic game Boggle. Read a complete description of the game here.
The basic idea that all players simultaneously race to find
words in a grid of random letters. All play and scoring is
The twists for this digital game:
- The grid is hexagonal, which has fewer adjacent letters and makes words harder to find.
- Scoring is based on scrabble letter scores, so words using rare letters are worth more.
the scoring and competition is all online, as your opponents find the
same words as you, the words disappear from your score.
- There's no "whose got this word" phase after the search, it's all done instantaneously.
Honeycomb uses a limited lexicon derived from the open source program Collins Zyzzyva,
which has roughly 280,000 words considered acceptable for scrabble.
