Winning at Words With Friends

April 12, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 284

The Facebook and mobile game app Words with Friends does a great job of creating of a system for you to challenge your friends in a Scrabble-like game. However, it does not do anything for you to dull the pain of losing to your friends. So here are a few ways to gain an edge when playing against your opponents.

1. This is not Scrabble

Although it may have a game board and letter board similar to Scrabble, there are a lot of critical differentiators. For example, Words with Friends was built in a way to give you more of an adrenaline rush than Scrabble. The lead can change hands very quickly because players have many opportunities to hit large value words.

Another key example is with the letter J. in the game of Scrabble, the J can be super helpful by helping you get high-valued words, but you can also be trapped with the letter and never use it for the entire game.

However, in Words with Friends, the letter J is worth more than in Scrabble. Ten in Words With Friends compared to eight in Scrabble. And that's all that it takes to make the letter J more of a helper than a hurter letter. If you look at other letters you will see a discrepancy with Scrabble. There are a total of 12 letters that are worth more in Words With Friends than Scrabble. Take advantage of this difference!

2. Go for the multiplier tiles

The bonus squares that give you triple-letter or triple-word multiples really make a huge difference. There's no difference between the numbers of the bonus tiles; however, the way they are distributed on the board does give you the opportunity to land on several tiles in one play. This is how you can get multiples of multiples and really stack up the points. All you need is a triple-letter and triple-word play and you can easily be up by triple digits in points.

3. Hold onto plurals, and consider past tense

As a general rule of thumb, do not play an S letter or D letter if it is not going to help you land on a multiplier tile. The reason why you want to be more selective on when you play those letters is because you can really lean on them in the future when your back is against the wall and you do not have any good words to lay down.

4. Learn some words

The biggest edge you can gain is to have an advanced vocab. This does not just include the short, hard to remember words, but also memorize high-probability words that you are likely to encounter.

5. Play defense

Play the game like chess or pool - don't just think about offense, but consider defense, too. Consider the options your opponent will have when you place your words down. Be especially wary of opening up multiplier tiles to your opponent.
