The object of Word Whomp™ is to make as many words as you can from the six letters in the middle of the screen. Words must have at least 3 letters, and they can't be proper names, abbreviations, or contractions. Make words by clicking the letters in order. For example, if you wish to spell "CAT," click (or type) the letter "C" first; then "A"; and then "T."

When you finish making a word, click the on screen ENTER button or press the "Enter" key. If the word is in the puzzle, the word will appear on the signs at the top of the screen. Spelling words will advance the digging gopher towards the veggies and token bonuses.

As soon as you reach the "Spin" carrot, you'll receive 10, 50, or 100 tokens (depending on the difficulty level), a jackpot spin, and tokens for each additional word you find! If you reach the "Last Word" in this witty word game, you will be rewarded with 200 more tokens!


Jackpot!
If you munch your "Spin" carrot, the Jackpot Spinner will spin as soon as your current word game ends.

If the Jackpot Spinner lands on the word "JACKPOT," you'll win the jackpot amount shown on the left side of the game . The Jackpot gets bigger every second, so the longer you play, the more you can win.

Here are some additional pointers designed to help you become a more advanced Word Whomp player.

All words in the puzzle contain 3 - 6 letters. Proper names and abbreviations don't count.

Skill Level 1 is easiest, so try this level first. When you've mastered the basics, move on to a higher skill level. At the higher skill levels, your potential token bonus is greater.

If you're stumped, click the MIX UP button. When your letters switch places, you can often find words that you may have overlooked. You can click the MIX UP button as often as you wish.

After you reach the "Spin" carrot, longer words will earn you more tokens than shorter words. So always look for 5- and 6-letter words while entering shorter words.

Words are listed alphabetically within each bracket of 3, 4, 5, and 6 letter words. Use this to your advantage as you try to spell the last few words in the game.

At the end of each word game, look closely at the words you didn't find. These words will probably show up in future puzzles

The Word Whomp dictionary does not include every word in the English language - instead, only those words that are in relatively common usage are included.

If there's a "s" in the puzzle, don't forget to add it to as many words as you can to make plurals!

I found mine while waiting for Word Whomp to load. I looked down at the challenges and kept scrolling down; found it after the free Wednesday Challenges. It was along with badges that cost gems, but this one did not have a gem price. Hope this helps.

Word Whomp is working properly.

Have you cleared your browser's cache lately?
Have you cleared your Flash cache?

How To Clear Your Browser's Cache

How To Clear Flash Cache

In addition to clearing your caches, try the following when a game doesn't load:

Leave the page and go back to your home page. Now go back to the game and see if it loads.
Sign out of Pogo and sign back in again.
Right click on "Start Game" in the yellow rectangle and choose to open the game in a new tab or window.
Refresh the page ( F5 key at the top of your keyboard).
Try a different browser to see if you have better results.

Here is what I do if a game doesn't load for me:

I leave the page and return to the home page.
I go back to the game and it usually loads on the second try.
If it doesn't load on the second try I repeat the process and it always loads on the third try.

Try that and see if it helps.

Did you click where it says "Zero Gems" in the green rectangle?

If not, you will get the pop up again tomorrow. Click on the green rectangle and the challenge will be placed into your latest Mix and Match album.

You could activate the challenge from that album or you can activate it by clicking the Challenges tab underneath the game.

I love playing Word Whomp but I have a problem getting into the game. It loads up to start game area and then freezes and I can't get past the start game to play. It even freezes up my page and I have to close page and then reopen to get back to home page of POGO. Every thing is up to date with my system so I don't understand why it won't load. Please help.

Word Whomp • Games won towards badge are gone.

By Donnalee73010 » December 9th, 2017, 5:09 am

I played word whomp last night and early this morning. I had won 10 of the 20 games at level 2 needed for the Gopher Gourmet badge. When I returned to Word Whomp to complete the Badge this evening, my previous game wins are no longer there. I checked every page that shows this badge and they all show 0-20. Is anyone else having an issue with disappearing games. Thanks.
