This Demonstration helps you find and learn the "light bingos", that is, the seven-letter anagrams made from the high-frequency letters A, D, E, G, I, L, N, O, R, S, T, U.

Start with...

You can choose which letter to start from, or even which anagram to start from.

By default, the seven given letters are listed alphabetically.

You can choose to shuffle the letters once ("shuffle now" button) or to have them always presented in randomized positions ("present shuffled" button).

You can also shuffle the letters by hand by dragging them around the board. Option "align letters" properly sets the letters up in a line after you have shuffled them by hand.

Random types

Type 1: If type 1 is selected, clicking ">" selects a random entry from the given range.

Type 2: If type 2 is selected, clicking ">" selects a random entry from the database.

If a random type is selected, the button "next" picks the next random anagram, but the buttons "previous", "first", and "last" work as usual.


Do not repeatedly click the ">" (or "<") button too quickly, because this can cause the system to ignore your command.

Other options

Option "show number" shows the number of solutions for the given anagram.

Option "show solutions" shows all solutions for the given anagram.

You can opt to partially see the solutions (select option "show hints"); this is very useful when learning the anagrams.

You can also switch off the display of the frames and the letter rack.

Database display

Tick the checkbox under the text "database display" to activate the database display.

Use the paging buttons to flip through the database.

Click the checkbox again to go back to the anagramming program.
