Install and Setup

Run the installer and follow the prompts. If you are using the DISC launcher, install to a directory you have added to the launcher. The launcher will detect the game.


Setup the game with the options that you want and have each player pick a color.

During the game, tap the letters in order to make words. You can start anywhere, but the next letter has to be next to the last one and you can't re-use letters. (Boggle style)

When you are done, tap "Write and Clear" to mark the word. You can also tap "Clear" to erase the whole word or the backspace button to go back one letter. The "Write" button will mark the word but not clear the letters (good for adding an 's', 'ed', or 'ing' to the end of another word).

By default, proper names aren't words and the program will compare your words to a built in dictionary and only give points for valid words.

When the time is up, each player's words are scored (more points for longer words). At this point you can tap on a word to see a definition or tab the "ABC" symbol to override the computer and allow a word that wasn't in the computer's dictionary.
