4 types of games
Enjoy different game variations.
  • Classic game
    One by one, each player opens his rack window and place his letters on the board to form a word. When the rack window is closed, points are automatically count, and the next player can play his turn.

  • Duplicate game
    On each turn, all players have the same letters on their racks. On their turn, they place their word on the board, and it is taken off for the next player. When every body played, only the word that counts for the most points stays on the board. Each player keeps his points.

  • Belgian game
    Similar to a Duplicate game, with the exception that player's racks contain a blank letter on each turn. Once the winning word is placed, the blank will go back to the player's rack if the corresponding letter is available in the bag. If the blank is not played, it stays on the rack.

  • Prepared game
    Similar to a Duplicate game, with the exception that the racks contain letters allowing a 7 letter word (or more). It is then possible on each turn to place all letters and get the 50 points bonus.

4 levels of difficulty
The computer can play 4 different levels :
  • "Mac the beginner", that plays at 70% of its capacity.
  • "Mac the intermediate", that plays at 80% of its capacity.
  • "Mac the expert", that plays at 95% of its capacity.
  • "Mac the champ", that plays its maximum capacity.
