Gramble was built by Andy Harsent in January 2022.
The name comes from a combination of the scramble
d letters and the aim to use all the letters
as with an anagram
. It's also been said you ramble
around the grid trying to work out
which letters from the alphabet are actually there.
It's always possible to use all the letters because each grid is not random; it is created from the list
of words behind the scenes. You can find out what score you'd get with these words by looking at the grid score
(or par) at the bottom of the Stats page or the par when you finish a game.
Gramble takes inspiration, particularly in the sharing feature at the end of a game, from
While still a word game, Gramble offers very different gameplay, but is designed around the same
concept of there being a new puzzle every day which is the same for everyone.
