Wordsy is a streamlined re-implementation of Prolix, a word game from
Each round, players study the 8 letters (always consonants) on the board
in real time. The first player to write down a word flips a 30-second
timer. That player is now the fastest player, and every other player now
has 30 seconds to write down their word.
Once time has run out, the fastest player scores their word by counting
the point value of each of the matching letters on the board. Players
are not limited to the letters on the board; they can add any letters
they'd like. Letters score based on which of the 4 columns of the board
they're in, and how rare they are.
After the fastest player scores, the first player clockwise scores their
word, and compares it to the fastest player. If that player scored more
than the fastest player, they score a small bonus.
Every other player scores their word and checks for a bonus. Once
they've all done this, the fastest player scores a bonus if their score
is equal to or higher than half the other player's scores.
After 7 rounds, players add the scores their best 5 words, plus their
bonuses. The player with the most points wins!
