Game Play Scenario 

Example One 

Two players have claimed two words, Man and Are. Then next card opened is 'G'. The third player claims the word 'MANAGER' by taking 'MAN' and 'ARE' and 'G' as shown in the picture below: (We apologize that these scanned pictures do not do justice to the high quality plastic coated cards)

Example Two

One Player claimed the word 'ABLE', then the next four cards are all consonants, 'M', 'C', 'R' and 'S'. Second player claimed the word, 'MARBLE' by adding 'M' and 'R' to 'ABLE'. Then the third player immediately claimed the word, 'SCRAMBLE' by adding the letters, 'S' and 'C' to 'MARBLE', hence owning the word 'SCRAMBLE' as shown below:

   ==>>    ==>> 

Example Three

One player claimed the word 'AXE' and the second player claimed the word 'MINER' using the wild card 'Wi' as the 'E'. Then the next card opened is 'S'. By agreement, one can not add 'S' to a word to make it a plural noun or a singular verb. However, the second player claims the word, 'EXAMINERS' by taking the word, 'AXE', the word, MINER' and the letter, 'S' as shown below:

Basic Word Score and Bonus Points

The basic word score is to add up the value points of each alphabet in the word. Hence the word, 'MANAGER' has a basic score of 14. The word, 'SCRAMBLE', has the basic word score of 25.

A number of vowels has a math operator assigned to them so they can create bonus points. There are 4 wild cards which have no value points. The wild cards have math operators assigned them so they can generate bonus points for the word if they are contained in it. The word in example three, 'EXAMINERS', has 24 Basic word points. They also have extra bonus points created by the first letter 'E' which has a math operator Rx3, i.e. the value points of the letter to its right multiplied by 3. This creates a bonus of 10(X)x3=30 points. Similarly the letter A has Rx3 as well, hence it creates a bonus of 5(M)x3=15 points. Finally, the wild card has a math operator wx1 which means multiplying the entire word score by one as its bonus. So the total word score for 'EXAMINERS' is 24 (Basic)+10x3+5x3+(24)x1= 93 points.
