In Scrabble, challenging a term is a delicate business. Even a just challenge will derail a game, ruining the fun for everyone involved. Around the same time, if there are no rules, it isn’t a game. Here’s how Scrabble word finder challenges work, as well as a few key points to remember before using them in the next word game.

Scrabble Game Rules:

• There are only two players in each team. Each match consists of two games, one for each team.
• Every player begins by drawing seven tiles and placing them on their rack.
• The first player forms a word out of two or three of his or her characters and puts it on the board to be read across or down, with one letter in the middle square. (Words that are orthogonal to each other are not permitted.) The player receives substitute letters for each letter played after playing a word.
• After the first turn, the players take turns. Each player takes turns playing a sequence of tiles to shape a title, then drawing new tiles. If there aren’t enough tiles left, still hold 7 tiles on each rack.
• In a single turn, all of the letters must have been in a single horizontal line or vertical line, and all of the characters must form a single spelling word with no slits.
• Each new word must make one of the following connections to the existing words:
• Adding a letter or letters to an existing word or letters on the desk.
• Putting a phrase on the board at a right angle to another word. The new term must begin with one of the letters on the board or apply a letter to one of the current words.
• Placing a complete word next to a word that has already been played, resulting in adjacent letters creating complete words.
• Any new vocabulary created as a result of these relations must be included in the dictionary.
• Any letter can be written on one of the two blank tiles. You should state which letter a blank represents when playing it. The letter stays the same for the rest of the match.
• You can swap any, any, or none of the letters in a single turn. Place your discarded letters facedown to achieve this. Draw the same number of letters from the remaining letters pool, then toss in the rejected letters.
• This is the end of your turn. There is no limitation to how many tiles you can swap from your rack than the whole of the tub, but there is no limit to how many tiles you can exchange from your rack.
