### What is the longest word game? (Definition)

The longest word is a part of the Countdown TV program, whose purpose is to find the longest word by using only some selected letters (e.g. to rearrange letters in order to make a word from letters).

There are many letter games whose purpose is to make a word from letters (Scrabble, Wordox, Words with Friends, etc.). Most are similar to the longest word game, for example if the goal is to use all letters, it is an anagram.

In the original rules, a word list (dictionary reference) tells which word is an accepted solution or not (no proper noun). The program here is not limited and allows all kind of words, including conjugated verbs and sometimes some proper nouns.

### What are the variants of the longest word game?

In its original version, the player has to try to make an anagram of the letters, or remove some of them to get the longest/biggest word possible.

Example: ABCDEFGHIJ gives JIGHEAD (7 letters)

There are variants where letters can be used multiple times (repeating letters).

Example: ABCDEFGHIJ giving CHIFFCHAFF (10 letters)

It is also possible to search a word without scrambling the letters

Example: ABCDEFGHIJ allows A_C____HI_ (ACHI) (4 letters)

Finally, it is possible to mix the two options

Example: ABCDEFGHIJ gives BEEF (4 letters)
