The object of this word game is to score more points than your opponent! In SCRABBLE, players take turns creating words out of their seven letters. Each player places a word on the board on his or her turn. Words must connect to other words already on the board, either horizontally or vertically.

Each letter has a number that shows its point value. Your score is based on the point value of each letter in your word, multiplied by the premium squares on the board.

On your first turn, drag a word from your rack to the center of the board. Drag or type each letter separately, then click on a square to drop the letter.

Words you can play include:
  • Two letters or more
  • NO proper names or other capitalized words
  • NO abbreviations

Your word can read across or down.
  • Words must be readable from left to right (across) or from top to bottom (down).
  • Words cannot be played from bottom to top, or from right to left.
  • Words cannot be played diagonally.

Here are some tips and tricks to help you succeed in SCRABBLE - everyone's favorite word game!

Each game includes 2 Blank tiles. These tiles can be used for any letter you want! In the Game Options, you can choose whether the blanks can be played once per game only, or you can choose to "recycle" the blanks after they have been played by replacing a blank with a matching letter from your rack!

Use the Premium Squares. Where you play is often more important than what you play. The 8 triple word score squares are often the most important areas of the board. Use them first, or your opponents will! When you have a high-scoring letter such as J, Q, X, or Z, try to place it on a triple letter or double letter score square!

Use the S and Blank tiles wisely! The S is the most valuable letter in the game, since it can be used to double your score. Instead of using the S or blank tile as part of only one word, make the S your link between a new word and an old word! This way, you will get points for two words for the "price of one"! For example, you could play the word "cat" alone. On your next turn, you can play the word "dogs" by using the S to make the word "cats" AND the word "dogs" at the same time! Sometimes you can also use letters such as Y, R, and D in the same way.

Look for word beginnings and endings! Look in your rack for certain letters that can become beginnings and endings for lots of different words. Examples of prefixes include: RE, UN, OVER, etc
Examples of suffixes include: -ED, -ING, -ER, etc.

Length doesn't matter! A long word is not always a high-scoring word. The point values of the individual letters and the premium squares usually have a bigger impact on your score than the length of the word. The word ZA, for example, often gives you more points than a longer word like ANTLER, since the Z alone is worth 10 points!

Learn the special words! In SCRABBLE, there are certain words that are not common in everyday language but extremely useful in the game. These words include:
CWM - a geographical feature also known as a CIRQUE
QAT - a kind of shrub
QI - vital force, also spelled CHI
XI - a Greek letter
ZA - short for PIZZA

Scrabble • Re: starting a new topic?

It would appear that you do know how to start a topic; you've started quite a few.

From forum guidelines:


Spam
Spamming is not tolerated in the forums. Spamming includes posting the same post multiple times in a forum, repeatedly posting on the same topic in different threads, posting the same post in multiple forums, or posting repeatedly without actually contributing to a topic.

Multiple posts, whether on the same boards or different boards, can be actioned as spam.


Scrabble is licensed as is from Hasbro. Perhaps you'd be better served bringing your concerns about what words are or are not permitted to Hasbro's customer service. Pogo is unable to adjust their software to suit your preferred style of play. Alternately, consider playing off line with friends and using your own "house rules".

I hope this puts your concerns at rest. If you'd prefer a more official answer from Pogo rather than from your fellow members in forums, please use the Help link at the top right of your page.

I would like to apologize if I said anything here that was not very nice. I (along) with many others here are just to have fun playing games. I am willing to do just that.

Unless you play Traditional Rules and DON'T challenge a word, there is no way a made up word can be used in the game. If you suspect a certain word you think is invalid, consult the dictionary. All playable word and their definitions are given. Keep in mind a valid word play in this version of SCRABBLE is one that cannot be more than 8 letters long unless a prefix and/or suffix can be added to it as well as the letter 'S'.

Click on the Chat Rooms tab underneath the game.
You need to choose a room from the Chat Rooms list and then choose an empty table. You will then be able to change your options.

If you are clicking Play People/Play Robots, you will land in a game that has pre-set options.

You need to put a check mark in the box that says:
"Limit Players Joining This Game To Certain Skill Ratings"

then you can remove the check marks from whatever
levels you do not wish to join your game.

When you select a room, the Table Select is the first thing that pop up. There is a Legend on that pop up that tells you what the Table options are. You can also, click on the word Option at each table to see what that table options are. If you don't find one you like, make your own. Select an empty table and you will see the Game Options pop up. There you can make the necessary changes to your game.
