  • The total number of points per word is calculated as the sum of the number of points for each letter, multiplied by two.

score = (w + o + r + d) * 2;

  • If the word contains two or more identical non-consecutive letters, then the resulting number of points is multiplied by the length of the word. 
  • Example: The word "common" contains two O’s, non-consecutively. For this word, the multiplier would be six, because the length of the word is six letters. If two identical letters are consecutive, as in the word "see," this rule does not apply.
