Swedish developer MAG Interactive announced today that 1 billion words have been played in the studio’s picture crossword mobile game Wordalot — that’s almost 5,045 times the length of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. (Yeah, we did some random math.)

Available for iOS and Android, Wordalot is a simple crossword game that uses charming pictures as clues. It’s been downloaded several million times, according to MAG.

Johan Persson, the studio’s VP of Product, said in a statement:

“We are thrilled to see the Wordalot community being so active and engaged, which not only satisfies us as the creators but motivates us to keep on delivering the top notch quality for all crossword fans around the world.”

For all you wordsmiths out there: The app is free.
