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!

IS YOUR BROWSER AND FLASH UPDATED ? Also clear cache- your memory may be getting full and do a disk cleanup. All these fixes seem to help.

After my game up and stopped on me, I went to the daily challenge in Jungle Gin. I received a message during both games that I was playing the same game in another room, and forced to click quit. No I wasn't!

Word Whomp • games popping off

By ginnygran555 » July 13th, 2018, 4:55 pm

Have tried several games this morning and either they do not load such as trivial challenge or as in word whomp it plays then pops off due to error. Jungle gin also popped off in the middle of the game.

You can change the background.

Let the game load and then click "Theme" located under the time and score.

Select the background you want and click Okay.

How about changing the background for Word Whomp. It has been winter there for 9 or 10 months! How about some summer, or early fall?

Word Whomp • Re: will html5 cause rank lost?

Don't think of it as losing ranks but Pogo adding new ranks to the game thus allowing you to earn new rank badges.

Word Whomp • Re: word whomp

Right now there are 2,034 players in Word Whomp - you can see the number playing by looking at the Games A-Z tab. It stands to reason that they would not be included in this number if they are not able to load the game.

No one can tell you why a white screen comes up because no one here knows enough about your individual computer/browser settings. No one here can fix the problem for players experiencing it -this forum is manned by your fellow players, not by Pogo/EA technical staff. We give those posting here some ideas to try, not a solution.

The coding in a game rarely needs tweaking to correspond with programming platform updates. If there were an error in programming, those 2,034 players would not be playing - a coding error would affect all players.

If I were to recommend anything, I would suggest that those having trouble with Flash games take a look at their *Flash Player Manager Settings*. The thread below will tell you more about those:

WW is loading and playing just fine. At least for myself and the 7,000 others playing it.
Are you using a Mac or a PC? Did you update your Flash?
how do you know that 7,000 others playing it has their game working okay for them. Can you tell me why the white screen comes up. Can you fix this problem and can you shorten the script(always say long running so can you shorten the script) and why is it the flash that has to be updated could it be the EA/Pogo needs to update their outdated games or just look for error in the programming.

If the trend to not carry over Rank from older game continues, then, yes, it will be true for every game that get changed to HD programming.
Ace's Up, Crossword Cove, World Class Solitaire, Stack'em and Turbo 21 all have new ranks to earn.

Word Whomp • will html5 cause rank lost?

By littlepeaks » July 6th, 2018, 2:02 pm

I think Word Whomp is one of the most enjoyable games on Pogo. Word Whomp is one of the games being considered for conversion to HTML5. I was reading a post in the Crossword Cove forum Rank loss in Crossword Cove, and someone said everyone loses their rank(s) and has to start over from scratch, when a game is converted to HTML5. The HTML5 game is considered a new game. Will this be true in Word Whomp? I'm up at rank 70, and that's kind of unfair (but I can live with it). :( However, converting games to HTML5 is definitely a step in the right direction, IMHO.

Word Whomp • Re: Gems For Every Game?

By CAGal1950 » June 20th, 2018, 1:15 pm

Not every challenge gives you 2 weeks to finish. Some give up to 4 weeks and some give you an hour. It is best to check the requirements and time limits before you buy. The Best of Word Whomp only has 4 Badges of the 10 Badges, that are for 2 weeks. The rest are varied.
And, just a little FYI: Pogo started offering the extra time at request of many, many Club Members.

Word Whomp • Gems For Every Game?

By justpassntime196 » June 20th, 2018, 10:50 am

Bought a Word Whomp challenge book, the same one my wife bought on our other account a few months ago. She had 2 weeks to complete each challenge. The first one we did last night now only allows 2 days to complete the challenge or use gems to buy more time. Seriously?
