The popular UK word game show is now here to make you feel stupider than ever!
In Rounds 1 and 3, click the Vowel and Consonant buttons (or hit V and C) to draw letters from the piles. Once 9 letters are drawn, you'll have 30 seconds to find the longest possible word. Click the letters or use your keyboard. You get points for submitting words in the dictionary, as well as for submitting the longest possible valid word you can find.
In Round 2, you'll have 30 seconds to unscramble the 8-letter word presented for 25 bonus points.
In Round 4, in addition to finding the longest possible word, you'll have different challenges to accomplish for bonus points.
In Round 5, you'll have 30 seconds to unscramble the 9-letter Countdown Conundrum for 50 bonus points.
You can click the blue Dictionary icon to get definitions of words Dictionary Corner presents to you, and the red Dictionary icon to get definitions of words you present to the game.
E-mail any word errors (no definitions, etc) to email@example.com. The game currently uses the ENABLE dictionary.
If you've got an iPad or iPhone and live in the UK, go buy the official Countdown app.
