Vocabulary game does good works

Have you discovered Free Rice yet? It's so addictive. You start playing and all of a sudden an hour has passed by and you MUST get to level 47 no matter how many hundreds of grains of rice you've already won. Or maybe you're not so competitive. Ahem.

I really like this game. While you're learning and relearning new words, you're also helping the UN to donate food to third world countries, grain by grain of rice. How bad can that be? Even for you folks that don't believe in helping others, this game helps you to boost your vocabulary and you barely even know that you're doing good, you misanthropes! See, big word there.

I am going to have the Boy play it in preparation for the SATs or ACTs. I know vocabulary is a thing of the past, but with his latin background he should do really well and boost his vocabulary, which is never a bad thing.

So you gotta play it and tell me how well you did. The highest level I got to was that difficult to maintain 47, although there are 50 levels. The FAQ says that few people go beyond level 48, which I see as a personal challenge. I'm so ridiculous about this kind of stuff. I'm a total and complete word nerd. Betcha can't beat me!

I've never heard of this game but I'm going to play right now! I'm super competitive, so I might be there a while.
