Rules

Game goal

The aim of the game is to gain points by creating valid words on a game board using available letters.


Creating words

Words may be created either horizontally (left to right) or vertically (top to bottom).

and they must create one continuous area on a board.


Scoring

For each valid word you gain points. First letter in a word is worth 1p, second 2p, third 3p etc. So for two letter word you get 1 + 2 = 3p. For 5 letter word 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 = 15 points.

Following board gives you 20 points in total for:

  • PLAY = 10p
  • GAME = 10p

But remember, each incorrect word gives you minus points based on its length. Two letter word gives you -2p, three letter word -3p, four letter word -4p etc.

Following board gives you 6 points in total for:

  • PLAY = 10p
  • GAEM = -4p (invalid word)

In case you use all available letters without creating any invalid word you get bonus points equal to number of available letters.

Following board gives you 30 points in total for:

  • MALE = 10p
  • PAY = 6p
  • AGE = 6p
  • Bonus = 8p (all 8 letters used )


Valid words

At any time during the game you may check words against our dictionary by clicking "Check words". You will also see how many points you would gain.
