The title of the first game provides a hidden clue about how to play the second. Grab the Upwords tiles that spell out "The Great Dalmuti" and throw them into the air. You'll find that they will miraculously fall into a piece of good advice on how to play Upwords - U MIGHT AD A LETTER.

Great Dalmuti is known as a "climbing" game.  Climbing and Upwards(Upwords) make a strong connection, eh?  :)

In both games all it takes is getting 2 specific draws to go from the lowly to the frustrating.

In Upwords.  if you have PEON  and you get an A and an I.  you can take it from PEON  to PAIN.

And obviously if you play it right in Great Dalmuti the Greater Peon when getting 2 Jesters can go from being the Peon to being the Dalmuti which is a Great pain to other players.
