5. Scrabble
> All the letter tiles are turned face downwards or kept in a bag. To decide who will start the game, each player picks out one tile and the person drawing the letter nearest to ‘A’ plays first.
> Each player picks seven tiles and places them on a ready-made rack, where only that player can see them.
> The first player puts the letters on the board to make a word, either ‘across’ or ‘down’ (as in a crossword), with one letter of the word on a central square. The score is recorded, including any double or triple allowance for tiles placed on premium squares. The first word always scores double, as the centre square has a ‘double word score’.
> A bonus of 50 points is awarded to any player who uses all seven tiles in one move.
> The first player picks out from the unused tiles the same number of tiles as was used to make the word, so as to make up the number to seven again.
> The next player has to add another word, joining or interlocking with the word on the board, and so on – round the players.
> All new words must use at least one of the letters that is already on the board.
> Players score for any word made or changed by their moves – but premium bonuses apply only the first time that letters are played.
> Instead of laying down a word, any player can exchange any number of tiles from their rack for new tiles from the ‘bank’.
> The Scrabble set includes two blank tiles, which can represent any letters its player chooses, after which it cannot be changed during the game.
> The game ends when all the tiles have been used and one player has laid down all his or her tiles, or nobody can think of new words to place on the board. The players have to deduct from their scores the value of their unplayed letters – and this total is added to the score of a player who has disposed of all his own tiles.
> The winner is the player with the highest score

> On completion of the first 20 seconds mark the judge will call "20 seconds".
> The contestant must start spelling the word once the judge has called "20 seconds" and must finish before the remaining 20 seconds time limit is reached.
> The contestant may ask the pronouncer to repeat the word, define it, use it in a sentence, provide the part of speech, and consult his/her team members. The pronouncer shall grant all such requests in the first 20 seconds only.
> Having started to spell a word, a contestant may stop and start after taking the permission of the pronouncer to start over. However the contestant must keep in mind the given time (will be the original time and not the restart time) within which the contestant has to give the correct spelling. In retracing, the contestant will be allowed to change the sequence of the letters.
> In a situation when the contestant has not completely spelt the word and wants to retrace the spelling, he/she shall be allowed to do so if time remains. The contestant will be awarded points if he/she starts spelling the word within the given time but crosses the 40 second mark. However, the contestant must keep in mind that after the 40 second mark has been crossed he/she will not be allowed to retrace the word.
