On 10 December 2015, good old Haggard Hawks turned 2 years old. To mark the occasion, we put together this ridiculously tough quiz—which, 8000 attempts later, just so happens to have become one of our most popular games ever.

Click PLAY in the box below, and you’ll be shown a list of 20 English words, some of which you’ll know, and some of them you won’t. Above them will be a typical HH fact. All you have to do is click the word that matches the fact. So if you were asked what the only English word containing eight letter Is was, you’d click indivisibilities. If you were asked to pick a word borrowed from the Aztecs, you’d click avocado. A word invented by Dickens? You’d pick boredom, and so on. (Just FYI—those aren’t actually in the quiz...)

Sound tricky? Well, yes it is. Oh, and you’ve only got 4 minutes in which to correctly match all 20. Good luck!
