There are two ways to play Jumbalaya on this server:
- You play the computer, which you can set to play at a level
between 1 and 10. At level 1 the computer appears to misplace the list of
words it wrote down. Level 5 is a good challenge for a seasoned
wordmonger. At level 10 you're lucky to score at all.
- You can play against other people by either starting or joining a
multiplayer game. When someone starts up a game, they allow a little while for
people to join, and can even have email sent to interested players. If you're
interested in playing others, it's better to join a game taking signups (if
there is one) than to start up a new one and dilute the pool of players.
You'll need a handle to play in multiplayer
To join a pending game, first select the Join link to see a list of

To start up a new multi-player game, press the button labeled
Less starch. No, wait, that's wrong, press the button labeled
Start a multiplayer game. You'll be asked to make important decisions
about the game you are creating.
