Hi! My name is Windy St. George and this is how to play Upwards. Upwards is similar to Scrabble except for that it's a 3D game. Every tile unlike in Scrabble, is only worth the same amount of points. Usually 2 points if it's one, the first level. So, you can make a word. Each person gets seven tiles. Then they try to make a word from their tiles, then they draw up to seven again. The next person, they could either play word, a word out of their tiles, or they can improve up on the word already on the board by makin' a stack. If you just put the word originally, you get 2 points for every tile, so "mood" M-O-O-D would be 2, 4, 6, 8 points. But by playing Upwards, you can get points for the same word by just changing at least one and up to all the letters minus one. One must still be showing. You can get points for that word again, plus points for the extra tiles. So, changing "mood" to "wood" would give you 2, 4, 6, 8 points plus an additional 1 for 9 points, for building it up. The next person could change "wood" into "wool" and they would get 2, 4, 6, 8, 9, 10 points. We get play continues until you reach standard point value, and that's how you play Upwards.
