Updates To Free Scrabble Dictionary 03/04/2014

We are always trying to improve our site to better accommodate all our wonderful users. After all it's all because of you that we exist :) So thanks so much

Recent Updates:

  • We noticed our homepage was taking a little to long to load and we discovered some of the parts that were slowing it down and so we were able to speed up our load times from 3.5 seconds down to 1.8 seconds. Ideally we would like to get under a second so lets see how we can improve on that later on.
  • We updated our algorithm anagram solver to function even faster. We found some areas where we could shorten the code so the results are shown even faster. We have results under a second so we are happy with those numbers for now.
  • Made some misc changes to our dictionary pages adding some more links.
That's all for now...check out our changes at Free Scrabble Dictionary

These days, it's hard to find someone who is not addicted to playing Words With Friends. This crossword-style game is similar to Scrabble and is played online via Facebook, as well as on mobile phones using their downloadable app.

According to Zynga, the maker of this game, more and more users are not only having a great time showcasing their scrabble word finder skills, but they're also using it as a tool to find love, flirt, and even cheat on their mates. According to this article, one in every ten players say WWF has lead directly to a hookup, 35% say they've let their crush win, and almost half (47%) of all players say they've got a crush on an opponent.

Matchmaking aside, Words With Friends has also been at the center of a celebrity controversy and has helped save at least one life. Read on to discover seven amazing stories brought about by a simple word game!

Quick Scrabble Word Finder

One feedback I've received by users of Words With Friends Cheat and Scrabble Cheat is that sometimes it takes a while to put in the entire board, and it would be nice to have a quick word finder to look up words by matching patterns. So as a result, I created the Scrabble Word Finder for everyone to use. It takes much less time to use than the cheat boards, and it will generate a list of words that are good to use for the games.

You can also use wild cards with the solver to help you generate more words and get more answers. This will help you find more words you can build off other words already on the board.

How to use a scrabble word finder to help you cheat at scrabble

When playing scrabble the one thing you want to do is win, of course winning may not be as easy as it seems especially when you are playing against someone who knows their stuff. No need to worry we are going to explain exactly how you go about winning in scrabble every time using a free scrabble word finder.

The first thing you are going to want to do is get familiar with how word finders work. If you are familar with anagram solvers then you are in a perfect position. If not, let me explain.

What is a scrabble word finder

A scrabble word finder is an anagram solver which allows you to input letters from your scrabble game. When you input those letter they usually will return a list of words you can make with those letter. he beauty of this type of solver is that you don't need to think at all. All you do is input your letters and let it do the rest of the work for you.

That's it...

How to use it

All you have to do is input the letters in your game and let it solve all the words you can make for you. But simply using the highest scoring word that is returned to you is not the only way to use it.

Try to look at your board and see what options you have. Look at trailing letters from other words already on the board and see how you can build upon those. Most scrabble word finders will have an option for a wild card. A wild card is the ability to add a blank tile which could potentially be any letter you want it to be. That gives you way more options of words you can make. Usually most of these word finders allow you to place a question mark as a blank tile. Once you do that then the solver will return other words you can make with an additional letter.

Strategy

Now that you know what and how to use a scrabble word finder now is the time to use some strategy with it to maximize your game play. Sometimes using large high scoring words is not the only strategy to use. As you get further in your game many of the letters are being used and start to dwindle. In that case you are going to want to keep track of these letters so you can get a better understanding of what future words you can make.

Holding on to some letters and sacrificing other words might be the way to go in order to have a better word to use in the future.

Using 2 and 3 letter words can be to your advantage. Even though most of these will not provide as many high scoring words, you can make a ton of these words which over time will add up. Finding some scrabble word lists are going to give you a better idea of what words you can make, especially 2 letter words with and X or a Z in them. There are more of them than you think which is why you are going to want to familiarize yourself with these words.

There are many strategies you can use with scrabble, and these are just a few. Hands down the best way to win at scrabble is to memorize as many words as you can. Setting up a daily regimen and habit of learning just a few of these words everyday can make a huge difference.

Hope these tips can help and be sure to share this post with your friends.
