The objective of the game is to form the highest scoring words from a set of seven letters. In addition to your seven letters you must use at least one letter from the ones already on the board. All letter combinations created must form valid words. To create a word drag the letters from your personal set to the game board. Note that the very first word must be placed on the center square (marked with a star). When you have placed your word, click the Submit button. If you haven't submitted a word within the time limit you will pass the round and get all letters you have placed on the board back.


Not well thought out....

The interface is about the onlything that works with this game. The letter randomization is iffy at best, I had 4 i's, 2 r's and an o. The play itself is not much more than scrabble with the poor addition of a best word score rather than actually allowing tun based gameplay, which leaves you with the same crappy tiles. The music should at least leave an option to choose a different selection rather than just on or off. Lastly it fails to recognise quite a few very common words.

Thank you for the input, although a bit harshly low score,
Of course there will be some words missing, no dictionary is complete, but that is why there is an option to test the words first, there is no penalty for doing so.
The randomization of letters are weighted so you get more common letters, making it easier to create words.
And the thing with not being turn based is to make the game faster so you don't have to wait forever for other players when you play.
If you don't like the music just turn it off. And turn on Spotify or something in the background.


it does not know word "trace"...

snugge responds:

It does have the word "trace" so obviously this is a game for people that can actually spell, being a word game and all.
Seriously given the amount of crap out there giving this game a 1 out of 10 is just plain silly.
