Unscrambling Tools

Without a doubt, the best way to win at Scrabble is to use unscrambling tools. Whether it’s the one offered by, or another, make sure that the tool you use is able to decipher long strings of letters fast. The faster these tools work, the less chance you have of getting caught. Most people use unscrambling tools covertly without other players knowing. If you feel that this immoral and you do not want to cheat your way to victory, you could suggest that each player gets to use one of these tools once or twice in a game. Giving people the option to use an unscrambling tool is similar to how the ‘phone a friend’ or ‘lifeline’ options work in game shows. Make sure everybody’s using the same tool and always verify words and phrases provided are correct prior to using them in-game.

Use Dictionaries

In addition to an unscrambling tool, keep a dictionary by your side. Having a dictionary around can make your life much easier. A dictionary will give you the ability to verify that the words put forward by people you’re playing against (and even the words you try to play with) are correctly spelled and genuine. It isn’t uncommon for people to make words up when they are playing Scrabble. Players do not typically do this intentionally, but it still happens. Part of the reason that they do this is because they genuinely believe the words they are submitting are correct. However, whether players intend to submit incorrect words or not is irrelevant. All words put down on the board need to be correct, otherwise the people playing with them will get an unfair advantage. You can either use a physical copy of the dictionary or you can use your phone.

practice makes perfect

Practice Often

As the saying goes, practice makes perfect. If you want to be a better Scrabble player, the best thing you can do is to practice. You do not necessarily have to play against other people, as there are automated Scrabble clients that you can play online. It’s also possible to play against other real people. Make sure that if you are playing Scrabble online, you spend time researching and finding the best game clients you can. Try to avoid paid ones. If you are interested in playing online against other people, bear in mind that most clients have chat capabilities, meaning you can talk to players in real-time. It’s important to avoid giving away any personal information about yourself since doing so could lead to fraudsters targeting you and using your private data for identity theft.

read books

Read Books

Regularly reading books can be a highly effective way to improve your literacy and understanding of the English language. A better grasp on English can make it much easier for you to improve your performance when you are playing Scrabble, mainly because you will know more words and it’ll be easier for you to spell them. There are many different genres of literature you can read if you are interested in expanding your vocabulary, ranging from crime fiction to biographies of famous people. If you are interested in reading more, then consider signing up for your local library. Your library will probably have a large selection of books for you to choose from. If you plan on going to the library, bear in mind you usually have to pay a small fee to sign up. Once you have registered though, you can borrow books whenever you want and don’t have to worry about paying for them, as long as you return them on time.


Watch Tutorials

Because Scrabble is such a popular game, there are a large number of content creators on the internet who create tutorials designed to improve people’s performance at it. If you are interested in becoming a better Scrabble player, why not watch their videos? YouTube and other video sharing platforms have countless videos created to help people play Scrabble hosted on them. Something to note about online influencers and Scrabble videos is that if you are going to use this type of content, you need to make sure you find videos created by people who are actually knowledgeable about the game. Avoid people who’re making content without experience, just so that they can get views. A good way to determine an influencer or content creator’s level of experience is to read their ‘About me’ page on their website or conduct an internet search.

Memorize Strategies

There are a number of different strategies that you can use to improve your performance when you’re playing Scrabble. If you are interested in taking the game seriously and want to learn what these strategies are, consider watching videos as mentioned in the previous section. Something to note about Scrabble’s strategies is that one of the most important ones is to keep players away from the center of the board. If players can get to the center of the board, they will be able to win bonus points.  The best thing you can do is keep them around the edges. Also, make sure that you monopolize on double and triple points. At the end of a game of Scrabble, the player with the most points wins. With this in mind, try to stop other players from getting points.

Scrabble is a game that’s easily mastered. The guidance given here will help you to become more of a pro at it. Out of all of the suggestions made, give special attention to using unscrambling tools. Unscrambling tools are highly effective and very helpful. They make it very easy to score points.
