How to play:
- You start with 7 letters
- Make a cross-word puzzle by dragging your tiles onto the board
- When you've used all your letters to form a cross-word puzzle on the board, draw another letter from the pile and your opponent(s) will also get another letter. If your opponent finishes, they'll draw from the pile and you'll get another letter.
- The quicker you play, the quicker your opponent(s) will get buried in excess tiles.
- Misspelled and non-contiguous words will flash red and block you from drawing
- If you cannot play, you may trade a tile back into the pile, but it costs you 5 seconds
- Once all tiles are used, the game ends and players are scored based on the word scores determined by individual letter scores. Unused letters count against your score.
- Be aware - non-contiguous words and misspelled words count as unused letters, and may cause other words to become non-contiguous. Don't "break" your puzzle at the end of the game, only the largest contiguous region counts!
