# WordMaster – Rules

• Each round lasts one minute with 7 randomly selected letters (at least 1 letter will be a vowel).
• Whatever letters are chosen in a round can be used as often as a player likes within a word. In other words, you can repeat letters within a word.
• Words are scored based on the letters used and the length of the word.
• Letter Points
• 1 point – A, E, I, O, U, L, N, S, T, and R
• 2 points – D and G
• 3 points – B, C, M, and P
• 4 points – F, H, V, W, and Y
• 5 points – K
• 8 points – J and X
• 10 points – Q and Z
• Length Points
• 1 point = 3 characters/letters
• 2 points = 4 characters/letters
• 3 points = 5 characters/letters
• 5 points = 6 characters/letters
• 8 points = 7 characters/letters
• 10 points = 8+ characters/letters
• After each round, you will receive some feedback based on your score and the letters chosen that round.
• The letters are rated every round based on their point values.*
• Scoring above 100+ points is considered a respectable score.

* For stat nerds, I randomly selected 7 letters, just as would be done in the game. The average sum of the letter points picked in a round is 18. The maximum possible sum would be 41 (Q, Z, J, X, K, F, E – as an example.) The game considers the letters easy if the sum of their points are equal or less than 18. If the sum is less than 28, the letters are medium difficulty. If the sum is greater than 28, the letters are difficult but require finding fewer words to do well.
