Gameplay

Click on the letters you want to use to create a word. You can only select adjacent letters. Once you have formed the word you had in mind, click on submit and Lex the bookworm will eat the letter tiles you selected. New letters will be provided so there are always new options to explore.

Don't find any words in the field? Click on Lex to scramble all the letter tiles and get a new field to work with! Be careful though, this costs points.
