The object of Word Ferret is to find as many words as possible in the allotted three minutes per round.
Each word scores points - the longer the word, the more points are scored.
When the round is completed, your score (if greater than zero) is presented along with all the other players who elect to play simultaneously.
A new round starts thirty seconds after the previous one and the leaderboard is refreshed every thirty seconds.
You may also choose to play alone. If so, you will have the opportunity to change the length of each round or even play untimed (by setting minutes to zero). Also, after each round you control when to start the next one.
