Scrambler

This is a cool game by Spogg games. The idea here is to rearrange the letters to form as many words as you can. You have to be quick because you are playing online against people from all over the world. It is kind of hard to pick out letters when they are out of order, but that's the fun of the game, after all!
If you are a member, you can chat with the other players in the game. I think it is free to join, but you get extra stuff if you pay (a small amount).
Playing the game
The objective of the game is to find as many words as possible from a scrambled word. To do this either click or drag a bubble with a letter to the area inside the rectangle and click submit. The words must contain three or more letters, the words are worth 1 points for 3 letter words, 2 points for 4 letter words, 3 points for 5 letter words and so on. The total number of words possible is shown on the left side of the game screen. Here you can also see which words your opponents have taken. There are two timers, one showing the total time until the winner is declared and one showing how much time is left until a new word is selected. There are 2 modes, nice mode where every player can take all words and mean mode where only the first player who takes a word will score for that word. In mean mode a new word is selected if all words are taken by any player, in nice mode this happens if all players have taken all words.
By using the Tab key you can toggle between using the keyboard for chatting or selecting letters from the scrambled word. Pressing return will then submit the word, space will scramble the letters, backspace will remove the last entered letter and escape will clear all selected letters.
