This is very interesting to me - but confusing rules it appears at the same time. I am particularly interested in the Greek letters knowing the language. For others though would it only be a matching game? Is the game really in Greek?

Yes, this are greek letters and greek words. Each word has its meaning and each is taken from dictionary or book. Only which that game does not have in words are accents (maybe better word is diacritic I don't know wich should I use).

So do we need to find the letters on the grid to make the words already supplied or are we expected to actually spell valid words in Greek?

It appears that you form the word that is given to you according to those long list of rules. Now for me who recognizes the alphabet and letters it would be playing a word game in Greek and only having to remember what appears, to me anyway, a very complex scoring system. For someone who does not understand Greek it would probably just be a matching game as I said before - like find these letters in this order.

I am very intrigued but it would not let me purchase it this morning. (how often do I get a game in Greek?) It said item being modified.

We need to find letters on the grid to spell word displayed on bottom of the screen.

Thanks you two for clearing this up. Not being able to speak or read Greek this initially sounded pretty daunting.
