Default How to find word lists for a word game?

Games like crobble. How do they check if a word is correct as I really need a word database for something. But saying that there are big problems with word games in that there is US And UK Spellings which are slight differences

There are list of words circulating on the net. Usually used by scrabble players.
I've got on in US English if you are interested. There should be all the words up to 15 letters.

There's 2 major Scrabble lists that should do the job:

TWL (Tournament Word List) is the North American standard Scrabble list.
SOWPODS is a combined list used in the rest of the world that includes TWL with the British words.
