Words3, developed by Small Brain Games, represents a leap in on-chain gaming. It's a unique PvP word-filling game similar to the Classic Scrabble. Words3 combines the classic appeal of word games with the innovative use of blockchain technology. This game is not just about vocabulary prowess; it's an arena for strategic play, economic savvy, and real-time competition.


Words3's gameplay is enhanced by its advanced mechanics. Players interact with an infinite board, purchasing letters whose prices fluctuate based on demand. The game uses a VRGDA (Variable Rate Gradual Dutch Auction) mechanism for pricing, adding a layer of economic strategy. Points are earned for word creation, with additional multipliers for specific squares.

Here’s a quick rundown on the rules of the game. Game Objective: Players aim to earn profits by strategically filling in words on an infinite grid. The game combines linguistic skills with economic strategy, as each letter used has a price influenced by player demand.

Dynamic Grid: The game starts with a single initial word, "infinite," on the grid. Players can then expand the grid indefinitely by adding new words.

Word Formation: Players can place letters anywhere on the grid to form new words. Each new word must be valid and connected to existing words or letters on the grid. The game verifies the validity of words using a client-side Merkle proof.

Letter Pricing: Words3 employs the VRGDA (Variable Rate Gradual Dutch Auction) algorithm to dynamically adjust the price of each letter based on its demand and supply. This pricing mechanism adds a layer of economic strategy to the game.

Scoring System: Players score points for every valid word created. Additionally, certain squares on the grid offer 2-5x letter multipliers, significantly boosting the player's score.

Word Bonuses: When players use words created by others, a portion of their payment for letters (1/4th) is awarded as a bonus to the original word creator. This incentivizes players to create words that others are likely to build upon.

Earnings Calculation: A player's total earnings are the sum of their word bonuses and a share of the game's treasury, minus the cost of letters purchased. The treasury distributes bonuses based on each player's proportion of the total points scored.
