DiscoPidgeon sets the new Wordament speed record: 136 words

Update: DiscoPidgeon has done it again! On June 22nd, he found 140 words in a single game!

This is simply unbelievable. Congratulations to DiscoPidgeon for the best recorded result we’ve had yet! He has already earned the “World Champ” achievement, but this result puts him into an entirely different league!

The previous best word counts for a single game (since launching Wordament on Xbox LIVE) were 131 (Wicketewok69) and 130 (mztan). Disco’s result is 3.8% better—and at these these speeds—that is amazing.

His average “word find rate” was 0.5 seconds with a “finger in rate” was 0.38 seconds, for an elapsed average time of 0.87 seconds / word SUSTAINED for 2:00!

Here’s his winning board:

Because this result is so amazing, we analyzed it six-ways-from-Sunday. We are huge word geeks and wanted to understand how this was even possible. The magic appears to come from his ability to pattern match all of the similar patterns with a given set of letters. We’ll be sure to ask. We have him coming in for an interview with us, and we are VERY excited to share that with you all soon.

Without further ado, here’s his amazing result:

      Hi Rob,

      We just had the pleasure of interviewing DiscoPidgeon in person, including getting a video of him playing a full round. We will be posting all of that soon. In the meantime, there are some videos of DiscoPidgeon on YouTube beating Wicketewok69. You can do a search for Wordament to see them.
