First Play
The First player uses an
equal symbol, and a combination of numbers and operations
on each side of the equal symbol, to form a true
equation. The player places the tiles on the board from
left to right, or from up to down, with one tile on the
center board position, labeled 2E, that awards 2 times
the equation score. Diagonal equations are not permitted.
Here is an example of how the first player might begin.
Because six tiles are used to make
the equation, the player is able to reach the premium
board position, labeled 3S, that offers 3 times the
individual symbol score. The player is awarded the
highest score by positioning the number 2 on the center
2E position and the number 8 on the 3S position.The player or score keeper computes and
records the score for that play. The number in the lower
righthand corner of the tile indicates the individual
symbol score. If we assume the number 2 tile is placed on
the center 2E position and the number 8 tile is placed on
the 3S position, then this play yields 28 points (1 + 1 +
5 + 1 + 0 + 6 = 14, then 2 x 14 = 28).
The player draws as many number and
operation tiles as were played, thus always having nine
tiles when beginning a turn. This player draws five new
number or operation tiles to replace those played.
