How to play

You use the command 'word' to enter in words during the phase where you are selecting words. Once this phase is over and you are looking at the players' lists of unique words then you use the 'accept' command to accept all the words as correct and the 'reject' command to reject any that are not words.


You have three minutes to get as many words as you can from the randomly distributed grid of dice. Words must be at least 4 letters long to be accepted.

Words are formed from letters that adjoin horizontally, vertically or diagonally to the immediate left, right or up and down. No letter may be used more than once in a single word.

Any word (noun, verb, adjective, adverb, etc.), plural of, form of, or tense is acceptable as long at it can be found in a standard English dictionary. Proper nouns (Smith, Ohio, France) are not allowed.


Only unique words that each player has found score. Any words that other players found as well do not score.

You score more for longer words than you do for short words.

The game will continue until at least one player scores more than 50 points.
