Description:

Players take turns forming words on either an 8x8 matrix gameboard (in the current new classic version offered by Winning Moves) or on a 10x10 matrix gameboard (in the currently offered Hasbro Euro edition).

Words may be formed horizontally or vertically on the grid, as in Scrabble, but as the title suggests the letters may also be stacked, so already-played words can be changed into different words by having letters stacked (up to a limit of 5 high).

Example: Change LATE to CATER and then change CATER to BELATED.

Scoring is different from Scrabble; there are no prescribed letter values per tile; instead, when a new word is formed, the number of tiles used in that word is counted and used as the score as follows: A word that is flat (no stacked tiles) scores 2 points per tile, but the words that score the most are those that have many stacked tiles, with tiles underneath the spelled word also being counted.

The impact of these rules provide for scoring-per-turn increasing as the game continues.
