However, since this game is designed as a never-ending puzzle, this means that you will always have new missing words to find every time you play.
First Get the Clues: When your mouse is placed over one of the numbered squares or local business icons,
a clue will hover in a pop up box. Sometimes an image may be part of the clue.
Click the Letters: Each of the words in the puzzle appears in a twisted format: the coloured letters rotate when clicked.
Rotate the letters to form the words.
Score: Once you have rotated all the letters of the word(s) correctly, the word will lock and display
in a consistent colour. Your score will increase.
Rewards and Bonus Points: Solve merchant-sponsored phrases to get their coupons and special deals revealed. This may include discount codes. Merchant phrases yield extra bonus points.

Scoring and Winning: Accumulate points for each word solved. The higher your score, the more chances you have to win weekly prizes when your community is offering them. The more points you have, the more chances you have to win each week. You must score weekly to be eligible to win.
Drag the Background: To get to hidden areas of the puzzle, use your mouse to drag the background up and down, left and right. You can also use [My Words] to move to words you haven't yet solved.
It's Forever: Once you solve a numbered word or phrase, it persists for forever. That's because each game is never-ending and found words are locked for life. As new words are contributed, you get more chances to play and learn new things about your community or topic. However, some games might last a week or a month before a new game starts.
Local Merchants have Words for You: Each game may have some new mystery words represented by icons instead of numbers. When you click an icon, you will be directed to the sponsoring merchant's website. Search their site for the mystery word, usually within their coupon. It's a great way of learning about products and services in your community.
