Where can I find the rules for this Wordscapes game?
Nene, I hope this helps:
These are the basic game rules:
Solve the word puzzles and earn “brilliance” points.
Brillance: As already noted, the brillance points reflect the number of words and letters in the puzzle. The higher the brillance score, the more puzzles 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.
Coins (number 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.
Tournament play: 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 ranking in this tournament, 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 from Friday 6 pm Eastern time—go back online and complete a puzzle later in the weekend.)
(If you don’t want to be in any tournament at all, just play offline from Friday 6 pm Eastern time until Sunday evening.)
TEAMS (minimum level 50 to join)
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, joining a team may not be the best idea (don’t be that player on the team with 0 points each weekend—it may just get you booted off the team anyway)
You have to be past level 65 to play in a team tournament.
... of course there is more to the game than this, but part of the fun is discovering it on your own—have fun!!!!
Brilliance points are accumulated by playing puzzles. They are not used for anything in the game; they only show how brilliant you are based on the puzzles you play!

What are the rules?
How do I earn the points that show up in Brilliance after each puzzle?
What are the rules for this game? What does yellow sun do for us. Says brilliance with numbers in middle of it.
