    A pencil and paper game in which players use a common set of letters to generate words, crossword-style, on their individual grids.

    Each player starts with an empty 5x5 grid. One player begins by calling out a letter which all must use, but may place in any empty space on their own sheet. When all are ready, turn passes for the next player to call out. Continue taking turns and recording letters until the grid is completed.

    Players score for forming proper words, both across and down, according to length.

    3 letters = 1 point
    4 letters = 2 points
    5 letters = 4 points

    Other scoring may be used, but the intent is for longer words to score enough to balance out the rule that words wholly contained within another are not scored. Words that overlap, however, may score individually.


    • MATED - ignore both MATE and ATE
    • MASKI - score for both MASK and SKI
