Game Description: Hatch up some fun with this egg-citing word game! Unscramble letters and find as many words as you can. Chicktionary is sure to delight, amuse, and challenge word lovers whether they live on the farm or in the city!

How to Play Chicktionary:

  • After the game fully loads, click the 'Play Game' button.
  • On the next screen, click the 'Play Timed Mode' button. (The 'Play Untimed Mode' and the 'Play Saved Game' buttons are locked, and are only available by way of a game download).
  • At the beginning of each round you get to bet how well you think you can do. That is, how many words you do think you can spell before the time is up? There are 3 choices. The higher you bet, the more bonus points you earn. But don't bet too high, because if you fail to cover your bet the game will be over! (The highest bet is locked, at least to me so far. It is labeled 'Power Players Only'. I am not sure if the highest bet is available at some point in the version of Chicktionary that I have here, or if this is only available in the download version).
  • There are 7 hens.
  • Each hen lays an egg with a letter in it.
  • Use the letters to spell as many words as you can before the time runs out.
  • To spell a word, you can either use your keyboard or your mouse. (Hint: If you know how to touch-type, use your keyboard. Using your keyboard is much faster, even if you type slow, than using the mouse).
  • To use your keyboard, you simply type the letters you want to use. Press your ENTER key to submit a word. Use your BACKSPACE key to erase the last letter. The ESC key will erase all letters. The SPACE BAR will scramble up all of the letters and help you get a different perspective.
  • To use your mouse, click the hens in order and watch the word appear. Click the ENTER button on the game screen to submit your word. Click the CLEAR button on the game screen to erase all letters. Click the SCRAMBLER button on the game screen to scramble up the letters to help you get a different perspective.
  • Score 100 points for each 3 letter word.
  • Score 200 points for each 4 letter word.
  • Score 400 points for each 5 letter word.
  • Score 800 points for each 6 letter word.
  • Score 1,600 points for each 7 letter word.
  • For each round, the 7 letters you have to work with are guaranteed to spell at least one 7 letter word.
  • The words you have already spelled will be shown at the top of the screen.
  • If you are able to spell enough words to cover your bet, you go on to the next round of play.
  • If you fail to spell enough words to cover your bet... it is game over!

Chicktionary Game Options:
  • To turn the game sounds on or off, first click the 'Options' button located at the right side. Make your selection of 'On' or 'Off'. Then, click the 'Ok' button.

Chicktionary Playing Tips:
  • If you know how to type by touch, definitely use your keyboard. Using your keyboard is much faster than using your mouse.
  • Pay attention to the two buttons immediately to the left of the clock. The first button is labeled 'Word' and the second button is labeled 'Duplicate'. When the 'Word' button shows green you know you have a legitimate word. So, click ENTER to score this word. When the 'Duplicate' button shows red you know that you must either add at least one more letter, or change at least one letter.
  • Use your SPACE BAR or the SCRAMBLER button to mix up the letters and help you get a different perspective.
  • Watch the words at the top (that is, the words you have already spelled). Looking at these can often help you spell words that are similar.
  • If one of the eggs show the letter 'S', don't forget to make plural words. Plurals are fast and easy to spell and can really bump up your score.
  • Try to spell longer words. Longer words score more!
  • Hint: If you can get all the words in a round, you get 10,000 bonus points!
