I took 7TAAXETXPLNJ.

Any explanation on how to play would be welcome!

You can 'revive' tiles you've already used I presume, and words don't have to be formed in a line. But when I revived tiles, the same letters don't come back?

Sometimes the tiles turn blue, sometimes grey when you play them.

Also, I tried the words "quotation" and it didn't allow it.

Would be happy to test more, but need some rules!

I'll look into the quotation find because thats odd since the word bank is about 200,000 words.

You can revive tiles but you will get another tile. The tile you get is pulling from other common letters once you begin reviving the tiles. Originally it was the same however people including myself were able to create words over and over in a corner because they would get the same tiles over and over. This was easier but broken.


This may be confusing but shouldn't be focused on - I'll push an update for the colors...
Tier 1 - random
White - Consonants turn grey.
Yellow - Vowels turn blue.
Tier 2 - revived / more common letters
Consonants darken.
Vowels darken.

Thanks, iamcartez. Still a bit fuzzy on the rules. You get points too for reactivating the tiles, but is the idea of the game to clear all the tiles from the board? I guess I'm trying to work out what I should be playing towards: Should I remove blue tiles first? I cleared all the tiles in "moves mode" but then what? Wasn't clear what to do.

Maybe when the full release happens, there will be a "how to play" area.

Also, did you consider allowing players to remove one letter at a time when selecting letters? Only option right now is to select the entire word and erase it -- could get annoying if you're going for a long word and mistakenly tap the wrong tile.
