The player (or Wekaner) chooses a start language (SL) and an end language (EL) from the options available and selects a difficulty level. The system then generates a puzzle that they must solve as quickly as possible.
The system automatically arranges the SL THEMES and WORDS in the Wekanun area on the game grid. The player then has to place the EL translations (equivalents) of the themes and words in question in the correct positions in the Wekanun area, in the shortest time possible.
Once they have completed the puzzle, the player clicks on FINISH. If they have solved the puzzle correctly, the time they have taken to do so will be displayed. Times can be registered by sending them to the central system.
The system ranks each player on the basis of puzzle completion time. The better their time, the more highly ranked a player will be in relation to a specific game configuration (SL, EL and difficulty level). All players can thus bid to become the world’s number one Wekaner.
