How do I randomize the wordlist via command line? It keeps creating the same 10 books with the same word order each time. Does anyone else have this problem?

Hi ThR1LL.

This is by design so that games are predictable between users.

You can use the --seedstart option to pass in a different seed number which will generate different random values; every time you use a different seed number you will get different games.

It may seem confusing but the idea was that YOUR games #1-10 would be the same as MY games #1-10, for easy comparison and playing together.

So the way I do it is I don't change the see, but I just make a pdf with like 500 games, and then just print a few of those at a time.  I thought I had an option where you could tell the program what game # to start printing at, but it seems I was wrong; I should probably add that feature.

You'll find commandline options in the readme.txt in the documentation folder:

--- ---//---------------------------------------------------------------------------
