On a long solo train journey on Sunday evening, I implemented a quick and dirty web version of a Popular Word Game. I’m calling my implementation Egg Lob, for reasons that I’m sure will be obvious to players of this game.

Word game

It doesn’t do anything more sophisticated than generate the board and show an (egg) timer, but just add a mobile, pens, and paper, and you’ve got everything you need for an impromptu game on a train or in the pub.

Play it here.
