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!

To all that are having trouble running the game, is your computer operating smoothly ? Google Ninite, I'm sure that they'll have a utility app that will be able to help you.

Best advice I can give to the game not loading or loading slowly is to reboot your computer. That always seems to "freshen" things up. And if that doesn't help, try clearing out your cache if you haven't done that lately. Good luck and hope these tips help.

My game does the same thing every once and a while. I reported it last month but received no response.

Word Whomp • game slow down

By Perkolator » May 29th, 2016, 5:30 pm

Can anyone tell me why I can play word whomp for 20 minutes with no problem? Then there is an immediate slow down to the game. It really screws up my timing and I get lower scores because I have to wait for the letters to display. I clear out history and my flash cache every time I play, but the only thing that helps is to restart my computer. Not fun to play this game anymore.

Word Whomp • Re: unrecognized word

By vane jarekjh » May 27th, 2016, 5:32 pm

Sometimes a word that is recognized in one puzzle is not the next one.
I think this is because we play with a limited list of words to find.
We are given 6 letters but no where it says that the list is All the words that exist with those letters. Is only a list of some of the words.
Just like the 2-letter words. That the game only uses 3 or more letter words doesnt mean the 2-letter words dont exist.

While I will agree with you that gauss is a word, it is quite obscure and not likely recognized by many folks. In any event, it is not recognized by the Word Womp word list. Each/most word game (s) on Pogo uses a separate dictionary or word list. For example a word that words with Tumble Bees is not necessarily a word that works in Word Womp.

The games that are used in the Team Tournaments have been loading slowly but they do load.
Wait 15 seconds to a full minute and the game should load.
If that doesn't help, post back explaining exactly what happens when you try to load the games.
Do you get an error message? A blank screen? A white screen? A frozen screen?

Of course gophers know how to spell - and the thing is that they use lots of six letter words that we don't know because - well, they have to gopher everything they can!

I'm always a bit surprised that GOPHERS know how to spell at all. It's amazing how many six letter words they do know. Especially words that were new to me, like papyri. Keep grinning!

Word Whomp • Re: Game won't take a word

By PoppyJackRussell » May 22nd, 2016, 11:07 am

I have played this game for years now and have never known it to refuse words that were correctly spelled. I do know, though, that I have (fairly often, unfortunately), entered the letters in the wrong order. Of course, if you do that, then the word will not be accepted!
I recall some time ago a new player came on and said that the game cheated - same issue that you seem to be having. I told that player to check their spelling of the word and they admitted that it was likely to be their own fault and that they had either mis-typed or mis-clicked the word.
It does make me cross that there are a lot of words in this game that are not 'real' words (gotta and gotcha for example) - but if we want to play the game, that is what we have to accept.
I am sure that if a word that you thought you had shows at the end of the game, it could not have been entered correctly.

All I can say, IadoreyouJesus, is DITTO! I'm going to be put in a loony bin if I keep getting upset when playing Word Whomp and this has gone on basically - where you REALLY notice it - since the Tournaments started (perhaps I notice these annoying quirks more now doing the Tournament since I play a ton more of Word Whomp). If I weren't as old as I am, I would cry. Hope someone will take this seriously; these things take the fun out of this game.

Everything you mention that happens when you and yours play happens to me also; it gets so bad that sometimes I don't even want to play it, but it was chosen as one of my Team's games, so......


whatever! I am taking the game out after this tournament my team members are complaining they said makes no sense pogo says it is not a word and later it takes the word. Maybe U feel it is fun but my team mates are sick and tired of this happening all the time they said take the game out or they will leave the team.
