The game is played on a 12 x 12 grid around which are a twenty blue tiles, these tiles serve no purpose other than to give the player problems when building words. The game provides the player with one letter at a time and the player's task is to place them onto the grid and make words of three letters or more by lining up the tiles either vertically or horizontally.

The player is allowed fifteen seconds to place each letter and has just three minutes to make as many words as possible, once a word has been formed the letters disappear and the cells they occupied are available to be used again. The longer the word the more points are scored. Words of four letters or more also give the player a time bonus enabling them to play longer than the minimum three minutes.

The game has a high score table and when it was released it was possible for players to compete with other players by uploading their scores to an on-line Hall of Fame. In 2015 the site which supported this feature is no longer active.
