GAMEPLAY RULES - You begin with two-letter words (this is signified by the 'Level' reading '2'). Type in any acceptable 2-letter word (according to the TWL word list) to start your ladder. The next word must match the previous except for one letter...i.e. ma -> pa for 2-letter words or mile -> male for 4-letter, etc. You can INCREASE THE LEVEL by one letter at any time by typing '..' in the entry box. You will see "Up To:" in the level box and the new level below that. To continue to that level, enter a word which is the last word you entered with a letter in front or at the end of it to make a new word of one more letter (i.e. pa -> pan, or wake -> awake). Quiz goes up to 10-letter words, and # of words on each level shows in the 2-10 table in the quiz. SCORING: The longer the words get the higher the points for them, especially once you get to 6+ letters. You can get bonus time and bonus multipliers for getting many letters in a row, these also add to your points total. WRONG ANSWERS: If you enter a NON WORD you will be penalized 15 seconds and your streak will end. If you enter a USED WORD your streak will end, however no penalty. If you enter a NON-CONFORMING WORD, it will state that the word doesn't work and streak will end as well with no penalty.
