Free Rice Game

It is a vocab game that you donate rice by how many words you get right. One word=10 grains. The rice gets donated to the hungry.

Warning: It's addictive. :D

.... perhaps we should start a free puppodoms game to go with the rice and Bart's curry?

I'm going to give the adress to that game to every English teacher at the High School, Middle School, and Elementary Schools where I live. Rice for all the hungry! Now if only there was a Wenches and Grog game...
