About this template

Welcome to Letter crunch, where your goal is to eliminate as many letters as possible by forming words. But here's the catch: each letter can only be used once!

How it works

Players must form words by selecting adjacent letters in the grid. Each letter can only be used once. When a word is formed, the letters used are eliminated from the grid. 

Try to use as many letters as possible. Can you no longer form a word? Then it's game over, and you add the number of existing letters to your score.

Add a point to your score for each letter remaining. The player with the lowest score at the end of the game wins!
