Supposedly guided by spirits form another world, the planchette glides from letter to letter on a Ouija board, spelling out words. One can characterize the difficulty of a word by the distance that planchette must travel to spell the words (visiting the letters in the order of their appearance in the word). The table below gives the shortest-travel and the longest-travel words of various lengths, in pixels using the Ouija board.
