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!

Word Whomp • Re: WORDS NOT TURNING OVER

By Wendybear1970 » February 24th, 2017, 5:36 pm

I agree with AAKLOWE's response COMPLETELY. I have even noticed this exact same thing in "Texas Hold Em". Those particular ads freeze or glitch the games VERY badly and you MUST "X" them out in order to keep the games flowing.

I have narrowed the issue for me to the Accuity video ads running above the game at times. If I X out of the video and then click on the first letter of a word I'm creating, I can then type again and speed is restored until the next time the ad starts to run. The AdChoice ads don't have this compatability problem.

Am I just typing too fast and the game not keeping up? It makes the sound that the word I typed was there, but when the timer runs out it shows them in missed words. When the I take the time to make sure they post, I often have to do them again. Is anyone else having this problem?

I have had similar issues for years. I think the game can't keep up with players for some reason. Right now, there is a serious problem with this game and some of the others. The letters don't always respond to clicks, sometimes taking ten or more seconds until they turn over. It's like playing in slow motion. When the chosen letters finally appear, a big chunk of time has gone by. It seems like something is out of synch on this site. (Same thing is happening on the Majong Safari game). This has been happening for about two weeks now. I have made sure I have the correct flash version, emptied my cache and even put a new battery in the mouse. Nothing helps. I love this game, but have become increasingly frustrated and find I come to this site less and less. I wish Pogo would do more monitoring so they can respond to problems quickly.

Let's say that you need 5500 to reach the current Gold cutoff point and you score 5600 on that game but then chat says that you now need 4200 to reach Gold. What happened?

Other teams keep playing while you keep playing so the current Gold cutoff point is always moving until the moment the tournament ends. We are given a snapshot of the score required right now (or maybe even a few minutes ago if the program doesn't recheck the score between every game) and the next time the number is checked is at that then-current time so the score will be different.

I played Word Womp this morning and my team was 7,000 away from gold. I played and made it to gold. I continue to play to make the gold stronger without a break and the next game I played I was 5,000 away from the gold. This happened to me 5 times. Every time I got to the gold I had to play again to get the gold. I've been in the Tournaments for a while now and this has never happened before. I also notice our ranks do not change. Has anyone noticed this happening to them?


I am still having this issue today. Every time get to gold next game I play, without a break I need 5,000 to 7,000 more to gold

Now I have another issue happened to me today. I ranked up from rank 31 to 32. I played in the new 32 rank about 100 or 150 words. I then had to leave for a few minutes. When I got back and signed back in to Word I am back to rank 31 needing about 500 words to get to rank 32. I know I was rank 32 because the symbol for rank 32 is a baby bottle and the symbol for 31 is a book and I saw my number toward the new rank.

same thing here-on Mac-been playing for years. We had a transformer blow a couple weeks back. since then, 4 calls to internet, 3 to pogo, 3 to Apple, and issues are the same: lag time, failure to complete game before timing out, total freeze up, can't even play solitaire. Happening on all the games we play in here. everyone is blaming everyone else's stuff. I don't have an answer, but if I get one, I'll post. Would like to figure this out-spouse and I play against each other!

Small number? Last count shows 2800 people playing WW. That suggests it's working rather well.
