What is it about?

Play on Words (POW) is a new word game where players aim to place letters on a game board making the highest scoring word possible. The game offers unique features, such as both players having identical letter racks, random and multiple POW wild letter tiles to promote competition, two game modes, and two board sizes. In this way POW eliminates the element of chance found in other word games, allowing the skill of each player to come to the fore. This is further enhanced by a challenge mode in which the POW dictionary is disabled and it is up to players to challenge their opponents’ word for validity or play on and accept it. Dictionary mode has POW adjudicating word validity using the built in dictionary. Words are only revealed once each players has locked in their word. Players accumulate points for each word played, with only the highest scoring word remaining on the board. Unique player tile colours highlight board domination at a glance. Play ends after four consecutive passes or when all the tiles have been placed on the board.
