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: Did flash update affect scrabble?

Firefox is blocking Flash.

Here's how you can fix it:

Go to a game and look up at the address bar. To the left of the address bar you will see an icon that looks like a battery or Lego block. Click on it and click "Allow and Remember."

Now click on the Firefox bars at the right hand side of the page. Click "Add-Ons" and then click "Plug Ins."
Make sure that Adobe Flash says "Always Activate" instead of "Ask To Activate."



While I was having trouble with the sound issues from the flash update, I insured that "always activate" was on for flash. After having repaired the change to usb speakers, and restarting computer, apparently that got switched to ask to activate. Thanks Jada for your assistance. Going to see if it made a difference with the dictionary and the wording on the start game, and the wording that was shaded on the "nice game"/results at end of game area.

That didn't appear to make any difference whatsoever. The dictionary is still not allowing me to click and type in the search bar, and there are no words visible unless and until mousing over the word area. There are few visible words in the "nice game" or "you win" window seen at the end of the game after your jackpot spin, and only "start game" at the start where it should offer the player to "wait for player or click start to have robots replace player seats" (or something along those words).

Scrabble • Did flash update affect scrabble?

By allyssanme » September 23rd, 2017, 6:38 pm

I'm wondering if the flash update affected scrabble as well as it did the sound for the pogo games? When I open the dictionary, it doesn't allow me to type anything in to check for correct spelling, and the word area is all whited out, but if I mouse over it the words show up as though they are shaded? I've never had so many difficulties playing pogo prior on my pc. My laptop still will not allow me to play scrabble on firefox, I get a black screen where the board should be and my name won't show in the room "who's here" list if I've joined an opponent. Anyone have any ideas on this?

Oops, forgot this;

Browser = Firefox 55.0
Cookies Enabled? = true

Scrabble • scrabble crashing and freezing

By porkpatty » September 18th, 2017, 11:27 am

I play daily before work. Typically can not make it through a full game without it crashing or freezing. What's the issue? I have received angry messages from other players due to this.

Scrabble • Re: operating system

By CAGal1950 » September 5th, 2017, 12:02 pm

Pogo's scan does not recognize Chromebook. And it is not a supported operating system.
Can you allow Flash games to play? I'm sure that would be in a setting somewhere. Sorry, I know nothing about Chromebooks.

Scrabble • operating system

By kidd4ever2 » September 5th, 2017, 11:59 am

When I run the scanning it says the operating system is the problem. I have a Chromebook and believe its operating on 059, What can I do to continue to play pogo scrabble....

Scrabble • Re: Letters not staying where I put them

By LadyJayne901 » September 3rd, 2017, 9:09 pm

My most sincere apologies to Pogo!!!

Evidently my problem was not due to Pogo - it was a Mozilla problem. They can be a little over protective at times. I switched to Chrome and can play with no trouble at all.

Please forgive my jumping to conclusions before exploring other options.

Thank you for the advice. I tried it, and the letters still go back to the tray. I play robots not people because they seem to take so long. Is this a Pogo problem? If so, I would think they would try and fix it. I used to spend a couple of hours at least per day playing games, now I try one game, get frustrated, and stop.

You could try typing them in, instead of placing with mouse. It has happened with some letters even typing them, but not as often as using the mouse. Simply click on the spot where you want your word to begin and watch the direction of the arrow to see if you need to click it again to go in the direction you need it to. It's typically faster to type anyway. Good Luck.
