Word games like Scrabble train important brain skills, including memory, verbal fluency, and information processing.
Click or type a word with 2 or more letters. You score points for each letter, multiplied by the premium squares.
Sharpen your vocabulary and memory skills with this fun, fast-paced word game!
To start the game, click the "PLAY NOW" tiles on the opening screen. The first group of tiles is then dealt and appears on your tile tray.
Score points to get more time on your timer, and Bonus points for time left over at the end. Your goal is to use all 64 letters before the time runs out, while getting as many points as you can.
Scrabble is one of my all-time favorite board games, and I've played it for years.
See below for explanation and links to useful Scrabble online resources including a Scrabble dictionary.
HOW TO PLAY. For example, suppose you are dealt the letters Q W R N I P A. One word you could form from this grouping is the word "RAIN".
To move those tiles to the Scrabble board, simply click each letter in the order needed to spell the word.
With Scrabble Sprint, time is critical. If the clock runs out, your game is over.
Therefore, don't spend too much time trying to think of the absolute highest-point word combination. Once you think of a good word, use it and move on.
Note: I believe the game uses the 4th edition of the Official Scrabble Dictionary. Words not present in that edition probably won't work.
Some basic features in this Scrabble Sprint - Scrabble Online Free game that can be helpful:
EXCHANGE. Don't like one or more of the letters on your Scrabble tray? You can swap them out for new letters by clicking the "EXCHANGE" button.
You'll then be asked how many letters you want to change out; one letter, two letters, or up to all seven letters.
There is a ten-second penalty for exchanging your Scrabble letters, so don't do this too often!
NEW GAME. If your Scrabble session isn't going well and you want to restart, click the "NEW GAME" button.
MIX UP / RECALL. If you're having trouble making a word from the letters on your tray, try clicking the "MIX UP" button. This shuffles your letters on the tray.
Sometimes shuffling can help you see word patterns in the jumble of letters that weren't obvious before.
If you play a tile on the board then decide you want that letter back, click the letter you want to take back. This recalls the individual tile you clicked back to your tray. To move all letters back to the tray, click the "RECALL" button.
The number of word points you earned during the current turn is shown in the lower left, as well as your total Scrabble score. The Scrabble board itself displays in the lower right, showing you how many rows you've completed and how many rows remain.
FREE SCRABBLE DICTIONARY & WORD CHECKER. If you aren't sure whether the word you want to use is legal, check this free Scrabble dictionary. It tells you whether the word appears in the Official Scrabble Dictionary.
For allowed words, you can also get the definition and point value.
TWO-LETTER SCRABBLE WORDS LIST. To get an edge, it really helps to know the allowable two-letter words.
Refer to this 2 Letter Scrabble Words List to see which words can be played as well as their definitions.
