About

 

 WordWorx is a word game, inspired by the Wordsmith game included on Tivo DVRs.

 

Gameplay
 

The objective is to create words from the 12x7 pile of letters and
maximize your score.

 

Words must be a minimum of three letters and a maximum of twelve.
   

The words are scored by totalling up the value of the letters and multiplying
it by the number of letters.
   

Letter values an frequency are exactly the same as the board game
Scrabble(TM).   However, note that not all the letters will be present in the pile.  (84 in WordWorx vs 100 in Scrabble(TM)).    Also there are no blanks.
