Wordplay is a game for Unix/GTK+. It is primarily aimed at Scrabble(TM) players looking to improve their anagramming and hooking skills, but can also be played for fun. The dictionary used is the full TWL98 word list (used for tournaments and club play in the U.S. and Canada).

Three types of games are available:

Word Mine: Find all words of a certain length which can be formed from the letters of a larger word. Letters may be repeated only as often as they appear in the given word.

Word Hooks: Find all words which "hook" off a given word: forming a new word by adding a letter to the beginning or end.

Bingos: Find all anagrams of the given (seven or more) letters. In a Scrabble(TM) game, playing a word which uses all letters on your rack is a bingo, netting you a 50-point bonus. The bingo puzzles included with wordplay comprise the 500 most statistically likely
