Try to find words on your phone touchpad like you would in Boggle. Like Boggle, each word can only use each cube/button once. For instance, CAB, MOW, and MUST are all illegal words because the same number space is used more than once. (111 for CAB, 669 for MOW, and 6878 for MUST.

Get it?

I'll start us off with a few Phone Boggle words:
COT (268)
HAND (4263)
BOW (269)
STY (789)

Remember, don't use the same number twice for the same word!

My intentions for the rules were that you could only move to adjoining spaces like Boggle, but still this is crazily impressive, Andrew. Did you write a program to solve these or are you simply a mad scien.., er, genius?

Ahh - not knowing the rules of Boggle, I didn't realize that they should be adjoining numbers.

Perhaps I should rewrite my program to add in that rule. Nah - I'll leave that for another day.

Knowing that there can only be a maximum of 8 digits in a word, and having lots of available dictionaries, this was a very simple problem to solve programatically.

I wouldn't discount the mad scien.., er genius though
