How to Play Word Wheels

At the start of a new game you will be presented with 8 letters randomly arranged in a circle around a central letter, something like this:


Your challenge is to find as many words as possible within the time limit bearing in mind that each answer must:

  • be at least 3 letters long.
  • contain the central letter in the wheel.
  • be spelt correctly.

Some correct answers in this example are Rag, Rage, Age and Harp. Notice that each answer is at least 3 letters long and contains the middle letter A.

Also bear in mind that there is at least one 9 letter word in each puzzle. The 9 letter word in this example is Orphanage, however sometimes there are more than one.

There are two ways to enter your answers:

  1. By clicking on the letters in the wheel in the order they are spelt.
  2. By typing out your answers in the box provided.

The next step is to click on the Enter button or press the Enter key to submit your answer. A message on the screen will then inform you about whether you answered correctly or not. All correct answers you have given will be listed on the right-hand side of the screen in a box, along with your total number of correct answers.

After receiving your final score, you will be presented with a screen showing all of the answers and which ones you managed to find. To make it more interesting, you will be shown a statistical breakdown of your results.

You have a choice of playing a 2, 3 or 5 minute game.
