Help On Scrabble Help
Building great Scrabble words takes practice. You can use this helpful Scrabble word builder to guide you along as you improve your strategies and skills. As you play more and more games, you will get better at seeing words on your rack and also at linking letters to words already on the board to build new words. There are certain letters that are easy to build words with. Letters such as S, T, N, A, E, for example, are easy to use and add to existing words. They are all worth a single point, but if you build a good word, you can maximize your points. The S letter of course is easy to use and is a rather valuable tile to have in the sense that it is quite versatile. You can easily pluralize most words and create two words in one play which will garner a lot more points if you had pluralized only a single word. Use this tile to its maximum potential so you can get more bang for your buck. The blank tile is obviously even more versatile since you could use it as a substitute for any letter of the alphabet. Use this tile wisely and you will go very far in the game if played at the right place on the board at the right time.
Many players tend to despise the letter Q. It instills fear in players probably more than any other letter, including the Z and X. However, if you use this Scrabble word builder to learn the Q without the U word list as well as other word lists that include words with the letter Q, then there is nothing to fear anymore. Remember that even though there are four U tiles, it does not mean you have to wait around for one to build a Q word. There are many words that do not require the letter Q, such as QAT and QI. So if you do have a Q tile, you may want to play it earlier than later so that you do not get stuck with it at the very end. With options to play it without the letter U, there is no longer a need to hesitate and delay playing the letter Q. Another way to build good Scrabble words is finding prefixes and suffixes on your rack. If you have prefixes such as un-, re-, or ex-, you can easily add these sets of letters to the beginning of an existing word on the board. Or, if you have suffixes such as -est, -ing, or -er, you can simply add them to the ending of a word that is already on the board to build another form of the word. Rack management is a technique that will help you see these word beginnings and endings more easily. It is helpful to place the prefixes to the left of your rack and the suffixes to the right of your rack so that your eyes can easily spot any possible word plays using these additions. If for some reason you want to swap a tile, be sure to first use this cheat tool to help you find the best word. You may reconsider swapping that tile once you see all the possibilities this Scrabble helper generates. If you do decide to swap one or more tiles, you end up sacrificing your turn to play a word and do not get any points that round. Advanced Scrabble players avoid doing this because your opponent may gradually move ahead of you. Plus, they may not need to swap since they can build words even though they do not have any vowels or may have a lot more consonants than vowels. These are a part of the essential word lists that you should familiarize yourself with if you want to reach this advanced level of playing.
