Help On Scrabble Help
This Scrabble word maker is a helpful tool to assist you in finding the best words every time you enter your letters and click on the ‘search’ button. It is very useful and easy to use. When making a Scrabble word, it is important to understand all the options you have in doing so. By using the prefix and suffix feature on this cheat tool, you can create new words or different forms of words by adding them to existing words already on the board. For example, if the word COMB is on the board, you could add the suffix -ing to it to create the word COMBING. The same tactic goes for adding prefixes to words. For instance, if the word PRESS is already on the board, you could add the prefix EX to the beginning of the word to form the new word EXPRESS. It is good to know what the more common word beginnings and word endings are so that you could easily make new words and increase your score. Some popular prefixes include re-, be-, and en-. Popular suffixes include -ed, -able, and -ty. If you could extend the word using these prefixes and suffixes to reach a triple word multiplier square, you can quickly increase your point potential.
Creating Scrabble word hooks is another way to make new words. When you add a letter or two in front of an existing word to create another word, you have successfully created a word hook. What is great about word hooks is that not only can you create a new single word but you can create two words in a single move. You will get points for both of the new words thereby maximizing your points in a single turn. For example, if the word OX is already on the board and you have the letter B in your rack, try making a new word and place the letter B in the front of the word OX so that the new word BOX is formed. However, to yield a lot more points per word play in this situation, add a B word like BEAR to word OX by playing it vertically so that you can get points for the word BOX and BEAR all at the same time. Parallel words is yet another strategy in making words for Scrabble. By playing parallel words, you can create several words in a single turn. Knowing your word lists of two and three-letter words are extremely helpful when creating parallel words because it is much easier to do with shorter words. For example, if the word HEART is on the board, you can add the word MEET directly above it starting from the letter A so that you produce other new words. In this case, you not only get points for the word MEET, but you also receive additional points for the words MA, ER, and ET. The more you overlap words, the more points you will get. When you do create new words, try and place them over the letter multiplier squares on the board so your points start adding up. When you have high point value tiles such as the J, Q, X and Z, make a word that will place these tiles directly over the double letter and triple letter multiplier squares to amplify your score. Try not to wait too long to play these tiles over a multiplier square because as the board gets more crowded, it will become more difficult for you to play these specific tiles on an exact multiplier square. If the opportunity opens, then great; but do not wait a long time for the ultimate letter tile placement because you could miss out on other opportunities in the mean time.
