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: Gold Word Not Recognized/Credited for Premium Challenge

By PoppyJackRussell » May 4th, 2016, 11:40 am

I have no idea why this should happen and I am afraid that since we are all members, including the MODs, there isn't anything that we can do to fix the issue for you.

All I can advise is that you go to the EA help and have a chat with them to find out what is wrong and why it is happening.

Please let us know how you get on - just in case someone else has a similar issue.

Best wishes to you

Word Whomp • Gold Word Not Recognized/Credited for Premium Challenge

By jpmwriter » May 4th, 2016, 7:19 am

Played Word Whomp all day today without credits for finding gold word as very first word, as challenged. I made certain not to select any letters until ready to claim the correct, 5-letter, gold word. My choice was definitely the right word, matched the word in gold section, etc, and did so 7 times, but was only credited twice. Something is very wrong and really unfair. I am also playing another challenge, naming words starting with vowels, and those words have been tallied appropriately each time, so it is just this one related to the gold word that is not accurate. I surely hope someone reads this who can fix the issue. Thank you.

Word Whomp • Re: Sunday Tokens

By CAGal1950 » May 1st, 2016, 8:37 pm

The pop up for the award appears before the game even loads.
If you are looking for the Token total at the top of the page to update when this happens, it won't. It takes several refreshes to get it to update. But, if you go to any game you'll see your awards added.

Word Whomp • Re: Wrong Ribbon Given

By Seska42 » May 1st, 2016, 3:40 pm

The Tournaments tabs on the game pages themselves have the Gold and Bronze columns swapped so that your Golds show in the Bronze column and vice versa. That's been a problem for everyone since the game Tournaments tabs were added.

Pogo has been told but who knows when or if that display problem will ever be fixed.

Word Whomp • Wrong Ribbon Given

By Timoshanka » May 1st, 2016, 2:24 pm

I noticed when I play Word Whomp and click on the Tournament page it shows that our team won a ribbon but instead of showing as a Gold one, it shows as a Bronze. We are in the Gold area 10% of the highest ranking. I noticed on my Ribbons award it shows it as a Gold Ribbon won. :? Is this just a fluke showing our team won a Bronze on the Tournament page and will it get fixed when the ribbons are past out next time?

Word Whomp • Word Whomp did not rank me up

By ajackie51 » April 27th, 2016, 8:05 pm

I apologize for seeking help in the wrong forum yesterday. Anyway, here is the problem: I completed the 9K word requirement at rank 67, & naturally thought I would go to rank 68. Nope! Am repeating rank 67...it's a bummer to continue to see that red stapler on the Word Whomp screen. I had never had a problem ranking up in this game until yesterday. I play in "Dogs" game room. (For a very short time last week, I played in the "Tournament" room, but was not given credit for thousands of points I earned, so I returned to my "Dogs" room, & have had no further problem getting my earned points.) Here is my info:
OS - Windows 7
Flash Version - 21.0.0
Browser - Firefox 46.0
Resolution - 1024 x 768
Java Version - 1.80_65
Cookies Enabled - True
Do Not Track - False
Any help with this problem will be appreciated. If this is not the correct place to seek assistance, please notify me, as I have never encountered this before. Thank you.

Word Whomp • Re: Now you see it, now you don't

By jennifermary57 » April 25th, 2016, 9:05 pm

I've had the same problem with the free trials. If I don't complete them in one sitting they disappear. Sometimes I will get a reminder that I have won, say, 6 games out of the 25 and I try clicking on the box to continue, but nothing happens. I have also tried looking under 'Challenges', but these are games that I have already completed more than once and clicking on the box doesn't help.

Did you check the Challenges tab underneath the game window?

Note that Wednesday and challenges from the Starter Albums (where your free trial came from) start on Wednesday and end Tuesday evenings.

Word Whomp • Re: Stop Script & Pogo won't load

By PoppyJackRussell » April 19th, 2016, 10:33 am

I am going to go to your 2nd question first. It sounds to me as though there are problems with the setting and/or browsers that you are using. If you can play on another computer with your player name, that the problem has to be with your laptop.

Regarding the script error; this happened a few months ago as well - I tried a debug but found out that I couldn't do that because I could not access the programme. That suggests to me that it is a Pogo problem and something that they will have to fix. Indeed, the next time that you get the script error message up you will notice that it quotes specific script which is usually the room name that you are trying to enter. Having said that, I usually click on stop script and the game loads - albeit that it does play rather slowly!

I can only hope that helps you - at least a little bit!

2nd: On my desk top, when ever I go to play Pogo all it does is think and think and never loads so I can't play Pogo at all... Any clue what could be causing this?
