  6. 6. Play Rules:- Two players or more play in turn on a flat surface to compete for the highest score.- The oldest (wisest...) player starts the game; he or she grabs 8 random tiles out of a bag and keepsthem in view for the other(s), then places the first word of the game with at least two interlocked lettertiles. The remaining tiles are returned to the bag.- The other player’s turn now. He or she connects one or more of his or her draw to the already placedword, this in a single horizontal or vertical row, creating words like in any crossword.- All the newly formed or modified words are up for points. Next player!- Someone keeps a careful record of each play as follows: the new score - the new total of that player.- When all 8 letter tiles are played at once, the player gets 50 points on top.- Placed words can be challenged by a dictionary before the next play. If the challenger is right, the wordis removed and the player loses his turn. If the challenger is wrong, he or she loses his turn.- The Logo tile can be used as any letter. It then remains to be the same letter for the entire game.- Beware, CANAC at play is confined to a 15 by 15 elements square field!- The game is over when all tiles have been drawn. Eventual remaining tiles are simply discarded.- If the game ends in a tie situation, the youngest player wins. Canac © Eric Parein licensed & edited through E.K.’Team info@ekteam.eu
