Word Cube

July 13, 2010

Word cube is game in which players form words from the nine letters in a cube. Words must have four or more letters and must use the central letter from the cube; at least one word will use all nine letters in the cube. The player who forms the most words wins. Many newspapers publish a word cube on their puzzle page, and Stealthcopter publishes a word cube on line daily. Wikipedia describes word cubes under the caption “word polygon.” There are twelve words formed from the word cube at right: bonnie, bunion, coin, concubine, conic, cubic, ennui, icon, nice, nine, nuncio, and union.

Your task is to write a program that finds all matching words for a given word cube. When you are finished, you are welcome to read or run a suggested solution, or to post your own solution or discuss the exercise in the comments below.
