Ron Rules

Ron Rules, as my friends and family call them, are a frame that mostly applies to LetterByLetterWordGames such as Scrabble, Boggle, Upwords, BuyWord?, Anagrams, Quiddler, LetterHead?, AlphaPlayingCards?, and so on. The Golden Ron Rule is just this: Any word played is acceptable if all players agree it’s acceptable. (If your word is rejected, letters go back into your hand.)
