The String crosses the board from top left to bottom right most of the time. Specials can change the speed of the string by speeding it up and slowing it down. Specials can also change the direction of the string.
Keep an eye on the String and the String Counter because when the string reaches the corner, words are scored and removed from the board. If you were trying to get an intersection or spell a longer word you might have to hurry to get it done.
Tip: Adding an ‘S’ is an easy way to lengthen a word and get more points!
