Quackey is a clone of the classic Perquackey anagramming word game. It is implemented as a Bash shell script and runs under Linux, UNIX, and OSX. The game is suitable for either solitary or competitive play.

The Perquackey board game consists of a set of letter dice, a 3-minute sand timer, and specially-formatted score sheets ... all packaged in a brightly-colored tin. Although marketed as an educational game for children, many adults consider it to be on a par with Scrabble as an anagramming word-building game. Over the years, it has been distributed by Hollingsworth Brothers, Lakeside Industries, and Cardinal, among others. It is still available for purchase.

From a set of 10 (13 in vulnerable version) letters, the player forms anagrams, scored according to word length, and with category completion bonuses. There is a time limit on each play. The rules are (mostly) compatible with classic Perquackey.

Requirements:

What's New in This Release:

Added qbot.sh, a "bot" that automatically plays Quackey with any arbitrary letter set the player gives it.
