Margaret says:

When a Link-O tile is placed in a in a space other then a connector space does the value of the title have to be the same for both side of the time or does it take on the value of the tiles on either side?
Lori says:

Can you play a link tile anywhere on the board? And can you place a link tile in a link spot if it is not connected to another tile
Cindy says:

My husband and I disagree as to whether you count your tiles and add the opponents (if you win the round) to your tiles score left in your hand. OR are the numbers in each person's hand just to judge who won and only the opponents number is what the winner scores.
Carol says:

What number value is a Link-o tile when you first play it as your starter tile? It does not let you know in the instructions.
Lyn says:

I you put down a linko tile on say red then your partner has a turn can he or she put a linko tile or double on the other side without linking?
Frank Mazzola says:
