Vocab Genii

Vocab Genii is a great vocabulary activity that offers an excellent challenge and allows you to track and share your progress with other people.  Both your overall score (based on the number of words you correctly identified) and your word strength (based on the difficulty of the words) are judged.

I would not recommend this site for anyone needing an extra challenge, and the difficulty level can become pretty significant.
