Playing fair with Code Word and Palabra de codigo

I play Code Word in both Spanish and English. It's easy to "game the system" and get a high score based on your keyboard skills rather than your ability to solve the puzzle.

 

Here's one way to cheat. I have a Mac and a Chromebook. If I fill out the puzzle, except for one or two letters on my Chromebook it stays on the screen, I can pull it up on the Mac and rapidly type in the letters. I can usually do it in a matter of seconds. I get a high score, but it isn't fair. If you play fair, you may solve the puzzle in two minutes, or it might take you ten, but you cannot do it in a matter of seconds.

 

Starting today, I will not play unfairly, and I challenge my fellow gamers to do likewise. Because I'm a retired Spanish prof, I almost always play in Spanish. So to my fellow Spanish Code Word players I say "Juguemos limpio."
