How to play the game
Explain how the game works. Explain what awards are / do: bull’s eye, rocket, bee. Explain tournaments, how you choose the fifty people playing
Solve the word puzzles and earn “brilliance” points.
Brillance: The brillance points reflect the number of words and letters in the puzzle. The higher the brillance score, the more puzzles (words) have been solved—so it reflects how long a player has played and the experience with the game.
Solve words that aren’t in the puzzle to earn bonus words.
Bonus words: during non tournament play, for every bonus word you find, you earn a coin. During tournaments, the bonus words also count towards your total word count.
Some puzzles also have a separate bonus word indicated by coins.
Coins (top right corner on puzzle page): the coins earned during game play (from bonus words, from playing the daily puzzle, from solving the bonus word in the main puzzle etc...) can be used to “buy” hints to help solve the puzzles.
Types of hint:
💡basic hint of one letter—randomly placed (usually longest unsolved word, but don’t quote me on that); if playing on a team, these are what 5 teammates helps give you.
If you have been given free hints, the number beside the 💡is the number remaining. If you see a greyed out “100” beside the 💡, you have to “pay” for them—if you press the 💡button for a hint, it will cost you 100 of your coins
🎯 bullseye is a one letter hint, but you get to chose where it goes
If you have accumulated free bullseyes, the number beside the 🎯 is the number remaining. If you see a greyed out “200” beside the 🎯, you have to “pay” for them—if you press the 🎯 button and then place the bullseye, it will cost you 200 of your coins.
🚀 rockets (looks like a firework) blast 5 letters randomly across remaining unsolved letters in words
If you have accumulated free rockets, the number beside the 🚀 is the number remaining. If you see a greyed out “300” beside the 🚀, you have to “pay” for them—if you press the 🚀button it will cost you 300 of your coins.
🐝 bees automatically fly around and randomly solve letters in a new puzzle. When you solve the word where a bee solved a letter, you will also earn free coins.
Shopping 🛒: (top right) you can buy hint packages, pay a nominal fee get rid of the ads, or watch videos etc.,. to earn free coins.
⬅️: (top left arrow) takes you out of puzzle to home page
Aa: (top left) after at least 1 word solved brings up the dictionary and meaning of the solved words (tapping on a silver word also brings up the dictionary)
Crossed arrows: (middle left) scrambles the letters
⭐️: (bottom let corner) is a list of bonus words found in the puzzle (tapping on a bonus word brings up the dictionary meaning)
Three dots: (top left) list of puzzles. You can replay any already completed puzzle by selecting it form the list up to level 6000. You do not earn any coins or brillance points when you replay a puzzle, though.
The daily puzzle is a separate puzzle from the level you’re on. By completing it each day the right way, you can earn free coins over the course of a month.
By solving the word where the butterfly 🦋 is, you get a star (if you solve a word without the butterfly, you get nothing—so try the word with the butterfly on it). The butterfly then moves to a new word. Get enough of these stars after solving the entire puzzle, you can earn 1 to 3 stars towards completing a picture. When the picture is completed, you can earn coins.
If you are playing while connected to the internet, after 6 pm Eastern time on Fridays, when you complete a puzzle you get automatically entered into a tournament. To access your tournament ranking, tap on the “star” icon at the top of the puzzle or on the star icon on the main page.
The tournaments match you randomly with 99 other people who start at the same time as you. The tournament lasts around 53 hours til Sunday night.
(If you want a shorter tournament, don’t play online after Friday 6 pm Eastern time until you’re ready; then complete a puzzle online before 1 pm Central time on Sunday.)
(If you don’t want to be in any tournament at all, just play offline from Friday 6 pm Eastern time until Sunday evening.)
You can join a team for weekend tournament play. Playing on a team allows you to “chat” with your teammates, earn free hints (💡), and earn coins if your team places well. This is a great idea if you like playing the weekend tournaments.
Some competitive teams require a certain brillance score to join and expect a contribution each weekend (your contribution to a team score is the score of your individual weekend tournament—it counts towards both)
In general, if you don’t play a lot and are unlikely to play during the weekends, you probably shouldn’t join a team (don’t be that player on the team with 0 points each weekend—it may just get you booted off the team anyway)
...there is obviously more to the game than this, but this will get you started. Have fun!
