Words By Frequency Blackout


The object of this game is to fill all 25 squares in the grid by naming words (see NAMING NOTE below) whose letter starts with the letter in the cell and qualify based on the column title. Guessing the most common word which qualifies for a cell will result in 100 points – points decrease from there based on how less frequent the word you guessed is compared to the most frequent. For example, if the cell contains the letter ‘C’ and the column is titled ‘Last Letter Y’ – the most common word for 100 points would be ‘city’ – any other word starting with C and ending in Y will be under 100 points depending on how less frequent it is than ‘city.’

NAMING NOTE: Words must be at least 3 letters. You must end each word with a ‘.’ (period) to submit it, to prevent entering a shorter word than the word you meant to enter. Words must be in the Scrabble TWL06 word list and in the top 300K of the Google Trillion Word Corpus. This corpus is ALL words and not a lemma corpus, so for example ‘was’ is not part of ‘be’ and plural words are counted separately.

Naming a word which appears more than once in the grid will generate the highest scoring result first – you can then use the word again if you want and the next-highest score will display, and so on. Occasionally there may be no qualifying words – in that case the grid square will be blank and not counted toward your final score average.

Cell categories are randomized each time quiz is loaded.

hugequiz Premium members will see missed answers in red. Missed answers will be the word with the highest frequency qualifying for that cell.

This is a great quiz, but wouldn’t it be even greater to aim for the lowest score? Than players really have to dig inside their dictionaries.

Literally just played it thinking the objective was to get the lowest score.
