Scrabble is a word game in which you require skills such as vocabulary, spelling, anagramming, strategy, counting and bluffing. This game can be played from two to fourplayers, which score points by forming words from individual lettered tiles on a game board marked with grid of 15x15. The words are formed across and down in a type of crossword and these words must appearin a dictionary to be valid. In official club and tournament games, the game is always between two players, or occasionally between two teams.
The board is marked with "premium" squares, whichmultiply the number of points awarded. The center square (H8) is often marked with a star or logo, and counts as a double-word square. The value of each square depends on the color it has:
* Darkred: ‘Triple Word’ squares
* Pink: ‘Double Word’ squares
* Dark Blue: ‘Triple Letters’ squares
* Light Blue: ‘Double Letter’ squares
The game contains 100 tiles, 98 of which aremarked with a letter and a point value ranging from 1 to 10. The number of points of each lettered tile is based on the letter's frequency in Standard English writing; which means that commonly usedletters such as E or O are worth one point, while less common letters score higher, with Q and Z each worth 10 points. The game also has two blank tiles that are unmarked and carry no point value. Theblank tiles can be used as substitutes for any letter.
Once you know all this, you can start to play. First, you need to put all of the lettered tiles face down in the lid of the box and shufflethem. Then, draw seven tiles and place them on your rack. You can combine two or more letters to form a word on the board. Begin the word on the red star square. Then you need to add up the total scorefor the word. After this, you should draw the same number of tiles that you just played and put them on your rack. Alternate turns making words. Win the game by achieving the highest total score...
