Award Winning Equate Fourth Play

It is possible to expand an existing equation. The player may place tiles on one or both sides of an equation in a way that does not upset the balance of the equation; however, each equation is allowed only one equal symbol. For example, the fourth player might expand the existing equation 4 = 4, creating the new equation 7 + 9 x 4 = 43.

Fourth Play

The new equation is valid because each side has the same value 43, and the equation has only one equal symbol. The score for this play is 11 points (2 + 1 + 2 + 3 + 1 + 0 + 1 + 1 = 11). The player draws five new tiles to replace those played.
