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!

Yes. I've tried Internet Explorer. It does run on that browser, but I keep losing my connection on IE; quite often I can't even get to the end of a game.

Have you tried a different browser such as Internet Explorer or Firefox to see if you are able to play?

Word Whomp • Update - Attention: Flash Update Issue

By Pogo_Llama » June 14th, 2017, 6:50 pm

As of 2 PM PT, June 16, Mahjong Escape and Undiscovered World should now be fixed. If you're still experiencing issues with these games, you may need to clear your cache and your Flash cache. (Make sure to un-check preserve Favorited sites option).

Thank you.

Hello Pogo community,

Flash sent out an update overnight and this has since created issues on certain Pogo games. The Pogo team is currently investigating which specific Pogo games this is affecting and contacting the developer's to fix these issues. The team is aware of this and working to fix this as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience and understanding. I will update here as information becomes available.

Thank you,

Word Whomp • Re: Ranking in top 15 during 24 hour period.

By Mod_Kyra » June 10th, 2017, 11:17 pm

High scores are reset at midnight, Pacific time. They aren't on a 24 hour cycle.
Each room holds it's own high scores. If you go to a different room, you can have another high score slot.

Word Whomp • Ranking in top 15 during 24 hour period.

By JustusViewpoint » June 10th, 2017, 9:29 pm

Please bear with me for this is involved. For the sake of this conversation let's say your score puts you ranked at number 5 for the next 24 hours. For this conversation let's say you scored at 8:00 AM. Another player scores the same points and is also ranked number 5 at 2:00 PM. Fair enough. There could very well be another player or two that scores the same and you all share the same ranking number. Still fair. Now let's say that at 7:00 AM the following morning you score the same amount of points as you did 23 hours earlier. Okay, your name does not show up on the list. However, in my opinion, your score should eliminate your previous scoring, therefore allowing you to start over for the next 24 hours. THAT is NOT the way it happens. Your later score is not even recognized. Bummer. I'm not really complaining. This 24 hour window only builds up your ego anyway. There's no prize attached, so it really is of no importance. I just think you should be able to replace your spot, that's all. But then again, even though you may have thought that your score in the high 6300's was sufficient to remain in play, that in all probability won't be the case. For just when your ego is sky-high some ALL-STAR waltzes into the room and blows everybody out with incredibly high scores that you can't even fathom, leaving their name in all 15 slots for the greater part of the next 24 hours (until they start timing out). Just an observation I wanted to share. It is ONLY a game after all. Have a good time. God Bless.

Word Whomp • Re: word whomp short changes on points

By Seska42 » June 6th, 2017, 12:03 am

Pogo is doing that on purpose. Some Pogo games have a token limiter and this is one of them.

In Word Whomp, the token limiter seems to be based on overall time in the game room compared to games completed. If I remember correctly, Pogo suggests that you wait 30 seconds or so between games. What I do is load the room and go get some tea while my "room time" builds up. I then play 8-10 games back-to-back and take longish breaks in between game blocks.

Word Whomp • word whomp short changes on points

By c111116 » June 5th, 2017, 11:53 pm

When you win too many games in a row at a fast pace, I believe the game thinks you're cheating somehow and gives you progressively less points than it says you've earned. I leave the game for a few minutes, then it does it again or the game crashes. Even purposely losing only fixes the problem for a few minutes Any solutions ?

Word Whomp is a Flash Game so Java has nothing to do with it. I use Chrome and I clear out my Flash Cache as well as my browser cache (I use Chrome) before playing and have no problems with it.
