DKM Word Ferret is a game where you try to find as many words as possible in a three minute time span.

In this version, you have a 5x5 letter grid and only words of four or more letters count. At the end of each round, your score (if greater than zero), is presented together with all other players, so you can compare how well you did not only in terms of the number of points scored but also in relation to the other players. However, you may also choose to play alone.

A new round is started 30 seconds after each previous round has completed.
