These are the rules for Words with Pirates – actually quite simple to understand and for every pirate.
- Every pirate gets 7 letter tiles. Ay.
- The playing field is 15 x 15 playing fields. Ay.
- One letter of your first word has to touch the skull (middle of the board). Arrrr.
- All other words must be applied to existing words or expand them. As clear as the Caribbean Sea!
- Words can be placed horizontally (from left to right) or vertically (from top to bottom), but not diagonally. No crooked things, mariner.
- Words can be extended forward or backward or on both sides.
- Eye patch open: Do letter tiles touch other letter tiles, these must also produce a valid word!
- You can always place only one word or extend a word. It may, however, build other words automatically when you place your letters.
- You can “pass“ and not create a word. Ay, a tactical retreat.
- You can exchange any number of letters with new letters – but in this move, you can not place own letters, it’s your opponent’s turn. It may be exchanged as long as at least seven letter tiles are in the “bag“.
- The game ends when one of the mangy cronies has no more tiles or all pirates “pass” in two consecutive rounds. Deadly calm, arrr.
- The winner is the pirate with the most points. And how do you get points, you will learn now:
And so does the scoring.
