Find Word Maker
This Scrabble word finder will not only help you find words that will increase your points, but it will also help you make words to beat the competition. There are many strategies in creating words that you should learn in order to improve your Scrabble game and become an overall better player. One of the ways to make better words is to create hooks. This is the process of adding a single letter, or sometimes more than one letter, to the beginning or end of a word that is already on the board. It is easy to add an S to pluralize a word, but you can also add more letters. For example, always look out for the possibility of forming compound words such as doorway, bedtime, and afternoon. This is very easy to do if your opponent has done half the work for you. If he or she has played door, bed, or noon, you can easily make a compound word by adding the rest of the letters to these shorter words. Therefore, think twice before you play a shorter word that is not worth any points. You may be able to add it to an existing word on the board and create a compound word to maximize your points and simultaneously impress your opponent.
In order to make a Scrabble word bingo, shuffling your letters around is one of the basic strategies you can start doing. Keep rearranging the letters because you might not know you have a word bingo until you see it in front of you in a different order. For the most part, it is definitely easier to create a word bingo from lower point value tiles. If for some reason you have a word bingo but are unable to play it on the board when it is your turn, then rearrange the letters and play a different word. You do not want to get stuck holding on to the same group of letters if there is no room on the board for you to play them. You may even be able to form a higher point value word from those letters that may not use all your letters. A word bingo is great, but a word hook is also useful since you can form two words in one move. When you do form a hook, you will get points for both words, including points for the new word you just placed on the board plus the new word you formed by adding letters on to the existing word. Another neat trick to making words in Scrabble is called parallel words. Parallel words are when you place your tiles in the same direction of another word and overlap them as much as possible. It is the opposite of switching directions when making new words. Thus, when you play words that are parallel to one another, you end up creating multiple words for multiple points, dramatically increasing your score. If you already know the popular two and three-letter word lists in Scrabble, you are already ahead of the competition. This is because it is usually much easier to create parallel words with shorter words. For example, if the word BEAN appears on the board, you can add the word ANT right below the letter N, so that you also for the two-letter word NA. Or, you can also place the word ANT right below the first three letters of the word BEAN, so that you create three two-letter words BA, EN, and AT. The more you overlap, the more points you get, and the more impressive it is. You begin to have more options when you consider this technique of making new words. When you continue building words this way, your points will really start adding up.
