4 Pics 1 Word Helper
4 Pics 1 Word is a recent game for Android and Iphone. Many times you get stuck on a picture, and just need a hint. This page can help you! Type the length of the word and the available characters and click the "Search for possible words" button. The most likely words will appear in the text box.
The game is played in the following way: 4 pictures are displayed and a set of letters is provided. Some word links the four pictures, and the player has to use the provided letters to enter the word. This page is useful if you get stuck, by reducing the number of words you have to look through.
For length 3 and 4 words, there may be many possible solutions, which can be inconvenient to look through. For longer words, though, there are usually only a few possibilities.
How are the Words Ordered? §
It may seem like the words are not ordered according to any scheme, but they are in fact ordered according to how common they are in English. Google has a 'trillion word dataset' from which word frequencies can be extracted. These are then used to rank words in the word list used here, so that the most common words are at the top of the list. This means the word you want is likely to be near the top of the list.comments powered by Disqus
