Each week, Talk Wordy to Me challenges readers to beat the word nerd in a quiz challenge and post their scores in the comments. This week is more a game than a quiz, but it's an old favorite of mine, Text Twist. You are given six letters and have to make as many three- to six-letter words as possible in the time given, usually two minutes. If you score high enough, you go to the next round.
Two hints: First, you can use your keyboard to type and enter the words, which is much faster than clicking the letters. Second, if you get the six-letter word, you automatically get to go on to the next round.
I went five rounds and scored 8,450 points.
OK, go play the game.
