Stop/Menu Off Mode Rec Go back (previous setting)

  • You are first prompted to enter number of players (1-10).
  • You then set the total game time in mm:ss.
  • You are then prompted for max round time. For example: you want to play scrabble for maximum of 15 minutes each, but each round shall only take maximum of one minute..
  • Done. Player 1 starts in paused mode. So press play top start.
