Originally invented during the depression of the 1930's, the world leading Word game celebrated it's 60th birthday in 2008.Every word counts when you are playing this specifically designed classic game. It is a fascinating, mind sharpening and entertaining. Richly rewarding, ideal for an exciting head to head challenge, or to relax with family and friends.
You have a game board, letter tiles, a letter bag, and four racks. Before the game begins, all players should agree upon the dictionary that they will use. All words are permitted except words that are always capitalized, abbreviations, prefixes and suffixes, or words requiring a hyphen or an apostrophe.
Place all letters in the pouch, or face-down beside the board, and mix them up. Draw for first play. The player with the letter closest to "A" plays first. A blank tile beats any letter. Return the letters to the pool and remix. All players draw seven new letters and place them on their racks
