This Demonstration helps you find "light bingos" with blanks, that is, the seven-letter anagrams made from the high-frequency letters A, D, E, G, I, L, N, O, R, S, T, U and one or two blanks that can stand for any of those letters.

No blank given

Click the seven letters in the seven rows and select "number of blanks" to be 0.

The system will tell you all words in the database that use the given letters.

One blank given

Say you want to use the six letters ANGILN and a blank.

Click the A in the first row of buttons A-U, click the N in the second row, and so on, until you click the N on the sixth row.

(You do not have to sort your letters alphabetically.)

The letter on the seventh row is ignored.

Now select "number of blanks" to be 1.

The system will automatically find and list all legal light words that contain the letters A, G, I, L, N, N.

Two blanks given

Click the first five rows and select "number of blanks" to be 2.

Second page

With two blanks, there are sometimes more than 100 solutions. Click the "page 2" button to see the second page.

If "page 2" is selected and you change the given letters, resulting in less than 100 solutions, the system automatically switches back to the first page of solutions.

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 anagram program.
