Know Some Crucial Strategies for Scoring High in Words with Friends Game

To score high in the Words with Friends game you have to rely on various things including vocabulary. 
Knowing a few important strategies is quite essential for getting consistently high score in this word game and to lead you towards success.

If you are a word game fanatic, then you must be familiar with the Words With Friends game, which is not only available for playing on Face book, but also on various devices such as iPod, iPod Touch, iPhone and other Android devices. Also known as clone of Scrabble, this exciting word game allows you and the opponent to follow some rules and create words based on given letters with the final objective- scoring more points. There are many ways to score high including the commonly practiced method, that is using cheats but to get ultimate top score, it is important to know some basic strategies. Let see them in detail:

1. Usage of plural words

The most common strategy to obtain points for the letters existing on the board is, extending the words. This is because of the following reasons: don’t want to miss some good letters for future moves, bad letters dominate with no alternative moves and
have to extend the word with letter Q to earn at least 10 points using the existing letters. Extending the word
can be done by pluralizing it, for instance the word QUAD can be pluralized as QUADS. This method can help you get some bonus fields and when you face the words that end correctly with triple score then suffixing S is the best option. The letters of extended words count with normal points whereas the bonus field counts only for first time, when the tile is placed on them. Pluralize the words intelligently, that is instead of suffixing S for the existing words, follow some advanced strategy. For instance, look to add a full word having the letter S in it. The word QUAD can be extended by creating a word BASE, if you have all the letters required to build it in your rack. Here the S is counted two times for both the words and you get points for QUADS as well as BASE, which gives high score.

2.  Avoid low value long words

Though creating long words show your proficiency in vocabulary it does not always give high score, especially due to more usage of low value letters such as E, R, S and similar tiles. Using all the seven letters in your rack can be interesting only if the word gives 35 bonus points. Further, long words can give opportunity to
other participants to score high, as your long word can bring them triple word bonus square or open up any new options. So, short words with high value letters are good option as it won’t change the game much and compels the opponent to build words with low-value letters or even miss a turn.

3. Know short words    

 Learn two and three letter short words and use them whenever you play Words with Friends game. They allow you to make words parallel to another one and make good score without much effort.
