I should have kept track of the words I've missed (I've missed three so far). I'm up to 300 grains of rice, "VOCAB LEVEL 45."

I'll admit I don't know all the words I've gotten, but I have been able to narrow them down based on the roots of the words. ;-D

Ugh. I got hammered between 300 and 400. Now I'm at 500 and I'm down to a vocab level of 43. :-B

I have to stop now. I'm at 1,000 (the little ticker goes to the left, just so you know I'm not lying), and I 'm unable to crack 45. Actually at 1K I'm stuck at 44.

Fun game, very addictive. But I gotta get some work done!


Here's the answer to a question I was wondering (and it's a kinda obvious answer):

If you have the rice to give, why not give it all away right now?
We are not sitting on a pile of rice―you are earning it 10 grains at a time. Here is how it works. When you play the game, advertisements appear on the bottom of your screen. The money generated by these advertisements is then used to buy the rice. So by playing, you generate the money that pays for the rice donated to hungry people.

I hovered between a vocab level of 28-32 while donating 1,000 grains of rice.

Very cool idea, fun and educational game. I bookmarked it.
