How to Play

  1. Identify the categories for the day.
  2. Group the words into sets of four that share a common theme.
  3. If you get all four words in a set correct, they’re removed from the board.
  4. You get up to four mistakes before the game ends.
  5. You can rearrange and shuffle the board to help you spot connections.
