Setup

  • Each player starts with 200 dollars.
  • Each players gets 8 wild tiles for 1 player, 4 for 2 players, 3 for 3 players and 2 for 4 players.

Gameplay

  • At the start of each round, a die is thrown.
  • The number on it is the number of tiles drawn by each player this round.
  • If it is “choice”, the first player chooses a number from 2 to 5.
  • Starting from the first player, each player may buy all or none of their drawn tiles.
  • If you choose to buy all, pay an amount of money equal to the square of the total number of pips on them. Otherwise, discard them.
  • Starting from the first player, each player may sell any number of words.
  • If you want to play a word, discard the tiles needed and get an amount of money equal to the square of the total number of pips on them.
  • A wild tile counts as any letter, but each word may only have one wild.
  • At the end of the round, each player must discard down to 8 letters, excluding wilds.
  • Afterwards, the last player becomes the first player and a new round is started.

End of the Game

  • The last round starts when the last letter is drawn. If the tiles drawn cannot satisfy the requirements, they are all discarded.
  • After all players sell their last words, the player with the most money wins.
