A toss is made by the player who maintains the score book to decide who will play first. Each letter coin moves in a straight line – horizontally, vertically or diagonally – on one or more spaces. A later coin cannot jump over another letter coin or change the direction. No letter can be moved out of way to allow another letter through. All letters must form part of the word being made. It is not essential that a word formed should include the letters which has not been moved. The words formed may be read forward, backward, horizontally, vertically or diagonally. Only one word is permitted in a turn. Once a word is made the player removes the letter coins involved in the word from the board. The play continues in clockwise direction.
