App description: SCRUMPIT is a scrabble / crossword style board game for 2, 3 or 4 players, involving tactics, strategy and wordplay with the option of scoring for yourself and/or frustrating other players by stealing their letters.

SCRUMP is an ‘Old English’ word which means to steal your neighbors’ fruit

The objectives of SCRUMPIT:

Each player aims to get their own color letters into their ‘Home’ Scrump zone of the same color.

Using typical crossword play techniques, each player endeavors to build words in their own homeward direction.

The moment a player (say yellow) has entered their own Yellow (“Home”) Scrump zone, two actions come into play:
Firstly, the player entering their “Home” Scrump zone begins to score points immediately, by multiplying the point value of each letter tile placed in the “Home” Scrump zone by the value shown on the side of their “Home” Scrump zone grid (1 to 7).

Secondly, this player is now permitted to “Scrump” up to any two letters from anywhere in the central 15 x 15 board (you can even ‘Scrump’ your own letters). Any ‘Scrumped’ letters must be used in that turn. It does not matter if words are broken up as a result of the ‘Scrump’. However, it is part of the fiendish plan to frustrate you opponent(s) by scrumping their letters to stop them getting to their “Home” Scrump zone. By doing this, they cannot score, and they cannot Scrump your letters until they are “Home”.

Any player reaching the “Apex Star” 7, finishes the game. All the other players must then deduct from their score, the value of the letter tiles remaining in their racks. The winner of the game will be the player who has the highest score – not necessarily the player who finishes the game. To play a full match each player must have one turn at starting a game. A match consists of one game (turn to start) for each of the 2, 3 or 4 players.

Bummer... I'd love to see this with single player/vs. AI. But it doesn't seem to have that. Games like this are always a crap shoot because you have to hope that the community builds enough to support playing when you want to play. Maybe they'll add that later.

I agree with Quick Wit 100%. I'm tired of being burned by multiplayer games where you can't find an opponent.

Got the game... But so far haven't been able to pair up with any one to play. Guess I will have to do the "pass and play" alone to get an idea of how it works. Maybe some day I will find another person at the right time:

AI

Thank you for your feedback. This is something we might look to add to the app in the future, AI is quite a complex feature to add though.
