Placement of the Tiles
Create a word on the board by placing tiles vertically or horizontally. First word in the game goes on the star.
Additional words must connect to previously played words.
- If you don't like your tiles, you can use a turn to exchange them.
- When you've got a word ready, tap play and we'll send it to your friend.
- While you're waiting for your friend to play, you can send them a message.
- Or start a game with another friend.
We'll tell you when it's your turn by moving the game to the Your Move tab. We'll also send you a Push notification.
