Iximaz - 2

Board is open.

So how are people finding it? I'm noticing a general trend towards short words that don't modify letters already in place, I guess because it's (much!) easier than playing around with long words and mods - and of course, we're giving a flat score of one point per word! If scoring used a scrabble system (probably 1 point per tile you play, though no doubt HQ's sets have point values and triple word scores and the like), do you think the rules are understandable enough that you'd be competitive? I know I can do it, but I'm writing the rules as I go along!

(I have no intention of running a game with actual scoring, for the record - I'm just curious as to whether it would work in principle.)

    Would 'ball' work, then?

      • Must admit...Hardric, Thu Dec 17 08:23
        I'm not exactly comfortable with changing lettrs, because I'm always thinking I'll screw up something. Besides, I never really played Scrabble a lot before, and I never played it in foreign language... more

          But oh well, as they say. If you'd like, you can offer multiple words at a time - one (or more) with changed letters, and then a 'safe' option at the end. I'll run through the list and see which ones ... more

            Though I did spend a lot of time trying to squeeze in another tile in F5-S; I found a way to make it work for 'sacs', but then realised I was reading 'photo' wrong. (The only reason I look like I... more

              Keychain for C5 Magic for H5 Banjo for G9.
              • You can have 'Banjo'.Huinesoron, Fri Dec 18 11:23
                For the others, take a look back at the chart in the first post . A consonant can only be changed to another one that uses the same base tile. So, for instance, in C5 we have a 'Y' (fine, you used... more
                • "Axolotl" in... uh, the circle below "library" and to the left of "sacs". *crosses fingers and hopes this is a legitimate play*
                  • I wish. :-/Huinesoron, Sat Dec 19 06:48
                    That would be an awesome move. But unfortunately, 'A-XO-LO' needs three slots before the -TL-, and there's only room for two. :( (Also, one would have to slot in in such a way that it would stick on... more

                      I would like to place 'keystone' in C5. En Taro Artanis.

                        I've left the gap at the top, because otherwise C4 would read 'TTO--TA', with both vowels as modifiers, and would have to be a word. Hardric - 5 Huinesoron - 4 Iximaz - 2 Board is open. Ix, fancy... more
