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!

You are correct that for the most part, Pogo staff doesn't read forums. It would take a great deal of time to wade through hundreds and thousands of posts, few of which contain any useful information, to provide tech help. There are some exceptions.

Pogo staff may start a thread regarding a specific game or issue and relevant Pogo staff may read and, occasionally, make a post in those threads.

Pogo staff may read some of the threads in their specific departments. For example, the Mini team looks through the threads for mini item requests.

The Individual Troubleshooting forum may see a response from Pogo staff.

For the most part, as it it says on Forums home page, we are a member helping member forum. There are some people here who are invaluable in helping others resolve general technical problems.

Any discussion is going to happen behind the scenes, just as most companies do.

Word Whomp • No Jackpot spinner

By OX4XS4U » August 24th, 2015, 12:40 am

Hello: Playing away and hearing the Jackpot spinner but can't see it. Hope I don't win any money, cause I don't know if it will be applied to my account. What you can't see can't hurt you. Is anyone else experiencing such a thing? Thanks!

By Golfingal9 » August 24th, 2015, 12:38 am

why are we restricted as to how many games we play/how many tokens we win? I play on my own..no bots..I have had problems staying on (no problem connecting to the SITE), but being disconnected mid-game or not being able to connect to next game for several weeks..I changed internet provider about 6 weeks ago & after consulting Geek Squad several times, they thought it was a speed issue with my provider; they said there is nothing wrong with my computer..after reading some of these posts, I now wonder if it's a Word Whomp/Pogo issue..any thoughts? p.s. I also have had issues being able to stay connected to Geek Squad for several remotes (that's why I was believing it WAS/IS a speed problem) HELP!!

It would be great if Pogo changed it, but I'm not holding my breath.

It's based off of your overall time playing in the room. You can take short breaks between every game or you can take longer breaks after playing multiple games.

Load up the game and then wait a while before you start playing to build up a time buffer. After 10 games or so, take another break. The amount of games you can play between breaks may vary depending upon how fast you can play.

Word Whomp • improper scoring

By jump006 » August 22nd, 2015, 5:25 am

Is anyone else having scoring issues after several games? If I put together a few higher scoring games my scores are cut in half. I understand it's because of the cheaters using programs to play the game but us diehards shouldn't be penalized because we play well. The high score limit needs to be raised so we don't have to keep room hopping to be awarded the proper scoring. I had to change rooms twelve times tonight.

Word Whomp • Re: Stuck at Rank 9

By AdventureEvie » August 22nd, 2015, 4:34 am

I now have 2001 wins of 2450 games played.
That's over 1200 wins at Level 2 with a Rank of 9.
If I take a conservative average of 12 words per game, that's 14,400 words and not moving to Rank 10, while it was about 9,600 words to go from Rank 1 to 9. I calculate that I now have at least 24,000 words solved.

When I play, I check ranks of other players under 10 million points, and everyone that I've seen with 2000 or more wins is at Rank 17 or higher. Some of them are free members, and some are Club members.

It seems as though I'm the only free Pogo member experiencing a freeze in rank.

It's most likely because you (1) don't keep your flash caches clear and (2) you don't have enough memory allocated to Flash on your computer.

Word Whomp • Re: slow second game

By PoppyJackRussell » August 20th, 2015, 10:13 am

I have been a member for just over six years now and I find that sometimes this game (and others) play well sometimes and then other times they do not. I doubt very much that it is because you are not a member.
Yo will be told to make sure that you have cleared your cache and asked if you have tried a different browser to see if you get better results, but from my experience, sometimes it works well and sometimes it doesn't. I come out of the room, play something else and then go back to a different room.
I don't know if this will help, I can only hope that it does.

Word Whomp • Re: Pogo bouncy ball logo

By Mod_Jada » August 17th, 2015, 2:40 pm

It shouldn't take more than a few seconds for your game to load.

The game will load when the green line underneath the Pogo logo completely loads.

Have you cleared your browser's cache, history, temp files and cookies lately? When you do, make sure "Preserve Favorite Website Data" is left unchecked. Close your browser after that and now clear your Flash cache:

Close your browser. Go to Start > Control Panel > Click on Flash Player or type in "Flash Player" in the "Search Control Panel box" > Storage > Click the "Delete All" button > Make sure the "Delete All Site Data and Settings" is checked > Delete Data. Restart your browser.

If the game still won't load after clearing your caches maybe one of these will help you:

Sign out of Pogo and sign back in again. That usually works.
Right click on the word Start and choose to open the game in a new window.
Refresh the page ( F5)
Try a different browser to see if you have better results.

Also see the thread below. It will show you how to adjust your Flash storage:

Word Whomp • Re: Strange Words - not English

By Mod_Skratty » August 15th, 2015, 4:45 pm

Each Pogo word game uses its own dictionary that may or may not include all words in published or recognized dictionaries, regardless of country. While that may seem frustrating, most word gamers start to remember those words peculiar to one game and not to another.

The dictionaries are typically only changed when it is found that a word included is offensive or hurtful.
