If you are presented with the word 'LORD', you can change the letter L to C to make the word 'CORD'. You cannot immediately change the letter C, however, you can change any other letters e.g. the letter O to A to make 'CARD' and subsequently change the letter C to B to make the word BARD and continue until the time runs out.
There are three types of hints available to help you out, should you get stuck on a tricky word.
The Shuffle hint will refresh the board to give you a fresh start. A new set of letters will be presented for you to create a word.
The Time Boost will add some time to your clock, giving you extra time to be on top of the international Change Word leaderboard. However, you are only allowed to use three Time Boost hints in a single game.
The Hide hint will disable the letters that cannot make a word, leaving you with the letters that can be selected to create a valid word.
Your score will be posted to the international Change Word leaderboard automatically upon completion of each game, if you created an account and are logged in.
You can view the top scores of other players and your current rank on the leaderboard.
