Big River Hustle is a solo, deck-building game. The player is a card cheat trying to win in a major poker tournament. The goal is to acquire as much gold as possible by the end of the tournament. To start, some number of opponents are picked from the set of opponent cards and stacked in difficulty order. The game helpfully recommends a starting set of four. This starter deck consists of numbered cards 2 through 6 in each of four different suits. The remaining other poker cards are shuffled and the first four are revealed.
Once setup, the game is played over a series of rounds. Each round, the player will face off against the top opponent. The round is divided into two phases: deck-building and the poker game. During the deck-building phase, the player starts by drawing an initial hand of five cards from their deck — in the first round, this is just the cards from the starter deck.

I made this tool after working on Related Words which is a very similar tool, except it uses a bunch of algorithms and multiple databases to find similar words to a search query. That project is closer to a thesaurus in the sense that it returns synonyms for a word or short phrase query, but it also returns many broadly related words that aren't included in thesauri. So this project, Reverse Dictionary, is meant to go hand-in-hand with Related Words to act as a word-finding and brainstorming toolset.
For those interested, I also developed Describing Words which helps you find adjectives and interesting descriptors for things e. In case you didn't notice, you can click on words in the search results and you'll be presented with the definition of that word if available.
