It's the ultimate word seek game! Players compete for high score by identifying words within the maze of letters on the board. As players identify words, they insert a colored peg in the hole of each letter used to form the word. Adjoining letters may be up, down, left, right, or diagonal. The letters must be joined in sequence, and may be used more than once within the same word. Letters have varying point values, and may be used a maximum of three times during the game. The first time a letter is used it counts as a single point value, and a green peg is inserted in the hole of the letter. The second time a letter is used, the point value is doubled and a yellow peg replaces the green peg. The third and final time a letter is used, the point value is tripled, and a red peg replaces the yellow peg. Once a letter has been used three times, it is expired and may not be used again for the remainder of the game. While playing the game, think of a stoplight - first play the green, then the yellow, and finally the red at which time play is stopped for that letter. Players at all skill levels will enjoy identifying words within the maze of letters. Players are sure to take advantage of each other's moves, and build on previous words to score premium points. They will enjoy non-stop fun as they show the other players just how creative they can be!
