You should shuffle all 100 letter cards and deal out 7 cards to each player. Each player places their 7 cards face up on the table in front of them. The rest of the shuffled pack is put in the middle of the table in a pile and the dealer turns up the top card (face up) on the table. The player on the dealer's left starts. This person needs to make a word that is at least 3 letters long, using only the letters on their 7 cards in front of them and using the letter in the middle of the table. If, for example, there is an 'N' in the middle of the table, the player can lay down an 'A', an 'I' and an 'L' to make NAIL. They would then score the points on these cards, so in this instance 8 points. They can of course use the word list provided for inspiration and assistance. The player then replaces the 3 cards they have played, with 3 cards from the middle deck.

The next player then takes their turn to add their word from their cards in front of them. This player must use at least one letter from a word on the table to link their new word. For example, if the first player put down 'NAIL' then the second player could add an 'E' and a 'G' after the 'L' to make 'LEG' scoring 22 points. If any players cannot think of a word to play then they pick up a new letter card form the middle deck and their turn is over. The game ends when all the cards run out and the person with the highest score wins!
