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: Scrabble not recognizing the word "assertive."

By xsysmms » January 16th, 2018, 2:18 am

A small point: you can only add standard suffixes, not prefixes. This is because suffixes, but not prefixes, will be included in the entry for the standalone word. REASSERTED, a 10 letter word, is playable here because REASSERT is an 8 letter word, not because ASSERTED is. If you turn to the R section, you will find the main entry for REASSERT, together with -ED, -ING, and -S. If you turn to the A section, you will find the main entry for ASSERT, together with -ED, -ING, and -S. You'll notice that you'll never find prefixes attached to a main entry.

This is why REEDUCATE is not playable here, but EDUCATING is.

Assertive has 9 letters. For this version of Scrabble, the base word can only be a max of 8 letters long and then you can add standard prefixes or suffixes.

Either -ive isn't considered a standard suffix (so you can't use it with assert) or they consider assertive as a standalone word rather than a base word plus suffix and it's too long as a standalone word.

Check to see if it's in the official Scrabble dictionary. If not, it's not a permitted word.

Well, then you need to contact Customer Service. No one here can make changes to your account. Use the Help link above, then Contact us. My suggestion is to wait until Monday or Tuesday and do the Call Back, then you can talk to a rep.

Scrabble • Scrabble not recognizing the word "assertive."

By screenname213 » January 13th, 2018, 5:57 pm

Anyone else have this problem. It recognized ASSERT. I added "IVE" but the s/w would not recognize that as an approved Scrabble word. I removed the IVE tiles and placed them again, but no. Not a word according to this game, but it is a very common word found in most dictionaries. There is no reason it should not be recognized.

Mimi I'm having same problem. Game gets this lag and slows down (herky jerky motion) then just freezes up. I clear cache also. Playing Scrabble here is the only place on the internet that makes my PC act POGO. Sometimes I get jettisoned out of a game and in my Windows box on top of screen blinks yellow and says Lost Connection To Pogo Server. Then I have to reboot. I went like 3 weeks with no problems then last weekend it started acting up. I have trolls leaving me messages calling me a quitter which doesn't bother me, I just want to play Scrabble.

Another situation with scrabble not loading. I had problems leading up to this with games being interrupted and suddenly ending with the message "game not in room." I guess we'll just have to wait and see if pogo can fix this again.

Because of your advise to other players I clear it before every game.
