The Basics of New Words With Friends

New Words With Friends is in many ways similar to the classic board game, Scrabble. It is alike in the sense that players take turns creating words. Rather than play a word, a player also has an option of swapping tiles, making use of tiles that have not yet been used. Players can form words in a vertical or horizontal manner. When a player forms a word on a DW space, he gets to double his score. Similarly, when a word is built on a TW space the player who formed this word triples his score. The game ends once a player has played all the tiles in his or her rack and there are no other tiles to draw on. As with any other game, the player with the highest score wins the game.
