If a tile is placed on an orange space, a player is awarded a special temporary Orange Point. If he places a tile on a pink square, the number of Orange Points that he has accumulated will be added to his score, the board will clear, and all other players will have their Orange Points taken away. The time per player turn and the score to win can be specified by the person creating the table (usually from 50 for a two-player game down to 30 for four players).
The easiest way to steal a whole word is to add S to make a plural but whoever sets up the table can choose a no S-steals option to make it more difficult. Also, putting a word parallel to an existing one can steal multiple letters from it as long as all the resulting touching tiles form valid words. Knowing a list of all valid 2 and 3-letter words is an advantage in doing this. Avoiding making words that will allow an opponent to make another from it to clear the board is also essential.
