THE GAME

Before
1.      Before the game is started, if requested by either of the group, the regulator will count the tiles. After counted, the tiles are put back in the box or sack and scrambled.
2.      Every player will draw a tile at random. The player who draws a single tile earlier in the alphabet (blank counted before "A") will play first. If there is more than one person that gets the same earliest letter tile, the drawing is restarted by those people having the same lettered tile.
3.      After the first player is set, all tiles used in the placement drawing will be put back to the box or sack and scrambled. The players will then draw 7 (seven) tiles each from the box or sack, starting from the first player, then goes in a clockwise fashion (to the left side of the first player).


During
1.      The first player will combine two or more tiles into a legal word and placed across the “star” sign in the middle of the game board. The placement is only either vertically or horizontally. After the first player is done, then the turn goes to the next player, clockwise.
2.      Players can put only one tile to make word(s), except in opening moves.
3.      Total time for 1 scrabble match is 40 (fifty) minutes.
4.      After finishing his/her turn, the player has to say “finish” and after that, he/she has to count the score from each turn himself/herself and announces it to the other players.
5.      The “challenge” can be made after the player in turn said “finish” and before the scoring sheet is written completely.
6.      If a player has 3 (three) or more tiles with the same letter, he/she is not allowed to replace the tiles.
7.      To replace the tile(s), the player must say “exchange” first and put down the replaced tile(s) into the box or sack, scramble the tiles, and then take the tiles in the exact number he/she put down. If the tiles in the box or sack are 10 or less, the player cannot replace his/her tiles but is still allowed to make a pass.
8.      If a word is challenged, the PIC (Person in Charge) will check the word according to the regulation and/or ask the dictionary checker to check the word according to the official dictionary.
9.      If the challenged word is legal, then the challenged player score will get additional 5 points.
10.  . If a word is not challenged by either of the other players from the opposite groups, the word is considered correct.
11.  If the first word of the game is challenged, and the word turns out to be illegal, the double word tile (the star signed tile at the centre of the board) is still available for use at the next turn. This rule of availability also applies to other double-word, triple-word stars which challenged word is illegal.
12.  The game ends if any of these conditions fulfilled:
a.       A player has used all of his/her tiles and there are no tiles left in the box or sack.

 SCORING SYSTEM

1.      The value of the word which passes the ‘star’ sign (the first word) is doubled.
2.      The scoring is based on the value of each tile combined with the premium box (es) used. The blank tile has no value of its own.
3.      Premium boxes scoring:
a.       Light blue Double the value of the tile.
b.      Dark blue Triple the value of the tile.
c.       Light red Double the score of the word(s) which crosses it.
d.      Dark red Triple the score of the word(s) which crosses it.
4.      If a word passes the blue and red premium boxes at the same time, then the score is counted based on the value of each tile doubled or tripled by the blue box (es), then accumulated by other tiles to be doubled or tripled based on the red box (es).
5.      The premium boxes are only valid for the first input. For the next usage, the value of the tile and words are back to normal.
6.      If two or more words are formed in a turn, then all the score made are counted. Example: “pace” (put horizontally) is added with the word “start” (put vertically) with the letter s in front of the letter “p” in pace so that it becomes “space”. The score is the score of the word “space” added with the word “start”.
7.      If two or more words are formed in a turn and the letter that is used in both words is in a premium box, then all the score made are counted. Example: “pace” (put horizontally) is added with the word “start” (put vertically) with the letter s in front of the letter “p” in pace so that it becomes “space, and s is in the red premium box. The score is the score of the word “space” added with the word “start”.

11.  At the end of the game, the scores of the two players from each group will be added to determine the winner of the game.

Pairing System
Pairing system is basically a system to determine every match up in each round. There are two kinds of pairing system that will be implemented in this competition:
1. Australian Draw
Australian Draw is a pairing system based on power match (1st rank meet 2nd rank, 3rd rank meet 4th rank and so on) with no repetition in a period of time, usually one day. Thus, if a participant meets the same opponent for the second time in the same day, the pairing will be reshuffled automatically so they won’t play against each other again in the same day.
2. King of the Hill
King of the Hill is a pairing system based on power match (1st rank meet 2nd rank, 3rd rank meet 4th rank and so on) with repetition. More than one meeting is allowable.
