What is Letter Tile?
Letter Tile is a Channel Game that we've developed here at Discord and is available on our official, public Discord Games Lab server. Letter Tile is a game where you and your friends take turns placing letters on a shared game board to create words in a crossword-style. Spelling words with high earning letters and placing letters on special spaces earn players more points, so get your dictionaries and thesauri ready!
