Love Scrabble? Up Your Game with These Tips!



It’s one thing to play scrabble, but it’s another thing to win the game. A game of scrabble is much more than brushing up your vocabulary – it’s about skill, strategy and selecting the right choice of words every single time.

Play with “ish” – And, get a bumper score!

Want a bumper score? Well, adding an “ish” after a word is one of the easiest ways to get that. For example, child becomes childish, warm turns to warmish, sheep will be sheepish and so on.

Play your Best Moves – From the Beginning

Usually, we save our best letter combinations for the last as we’re scared that our competitors will snap the points. On the contrary, it is better to play your best moves from the beginning and consistently to score big with each word.

Play a “Benjamin” – It’s not just a Name!

Brick becomes airbrick.

Jump transforms to outjump.

Away turns into flyaway.

Basically, you add a three-letter extension to create a five-letter word which is already there on the board.

Play using three-letter words – Don’t overdo the big words

Sometimes, we get so obsessed with only wanting to put out big words that we forget the power of three-letter words. Using a three-letter word is a useful way to optimise high-scoring tiles, particularly by getting the power tile on a double or triple letter square.

Play your “E” and “S” right!

You need to position your “s” and “e” carefully as each set has just four of them. As many words, require s and e to be together – you have to be extra careful.

Now that you’ve got the basics in place – get set to play on your PC with these scrabble games:
