The goal of Wordcracker is to guess a randomly chosen word that is as long as the number of squares given.
Taking turns, the players place a word consisting of an equal length as the word to be found. If a letter is in the right place, it will remain on the bar. A letter that appears in the word but is not in the right place is placed outside the bar. This also applies to letters that do not appear in the word, but these are colored white. Each player is given 12 turns to guess the word.
The game ends when the word has been guessed or when 24 words have been placed. The player who has guessed the right word wins the game.
