Tips re getting started: You'll need to sign up with a user name and password. When you get into the site start typing "word" in the little search window. Soon as you have typed "wo" you get a choice. Tick "Word Link".
You can play for free with your self or in tournaments. For a price, you can play in tournaments that give prizes. [Being a cheap-skate, I don't bother with those! ].
If you're playing for free, loading up between games can be very slow. What I do to avoid the boredom of waiting is have SeasonS or other sites open at the same time on my browser and I toggle back and forth catching up on these, as I'm waiting! That makes playing more enjoyable.
It's an excellent game - even the free version. ;D
There are a couple of good things about this site - you can play up to 20 opponents at one time & it keeps track of how many games you play & what your high score is. If we're on at the same time - my name here is penny466 & my high is 28,780.
