Basically, you guess the meaning of a word and if you guess it correctly, little banner ad sponsors make a donation towards buying rice for the United Nations World Food Program. You keep guessing and adding up grains and testing the limits of your vocabulary knowledge.

Sometimes I guessed correctly not because I knew the word, but I know enough about root words to puzzle it out. If you're an English geek like me, check it out!

My thesis prep class was playing this obsessively. I guess I get to try now that class is out.

They also recommend Scrabbulous.
