P laying Jumbalaya

There are two ways to play Jumbalaya on this server:

Single player

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 games.

To join a pending game, first select the Join link to see a list of games that are currently taking signups. The game setup for each is shown.

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.
