Spelling Has Never Been More Extreme
Spelling games are nothing new and they can most certainly be a lot of fun. Their rules are always simple enough, they really encourage you to break the bounds of your vocabulary, and they can be highly cerebral and strategic. However, some players might lament that they can seem a little slow as well. Not only that, but some games in particular can take a good amount of time that you may not always have if you’re constantly on the move. This is where Scramble with Friends comes in. Combining competitive spelling with speed, it requires you to form words at a rapid pace before the clock winds down. If you want to see how well your vocabulary skills stack up against the world in record time, then this should be the game for you.
Scramble with Friends is easy to play. Every round, you’re provided a grid of randomly-selected letters. At first, it may seem like they’re all just scattered around the board in a haphazard manner, but don’t be fooled! Closer inspection will reveal that there are dozens of words to spell out for anyone who’s willing to twist the letters around a little. The object of the game is to earn points by spelling out as many words as you can. Whichever player has the most points wins the game.
- Form words from any and all adjacent letters. Spell horizontally, vertically, diagonally, and in any combination thereof. Trace over them with a continuous stroke of your finger or stylus.
- Play games that last for three rounds.
- Work fast; you only have two minutes for every round!
- Spell longer words to earn more points.
- Make words that use less common letters to achieve an even higher score.
- Keep an eye out for double and triple multipliers. Spelling a word on them is a surefire way to increase your score exponentially!
Getting good at Scramble with Friends will require more than just fast eyes and a mastery over the English language. There are also a variety of power-ups you can collect that add even more pizzazz to a game that’s already as fast as lightning.

- Use Freeze to stop the clock and give yourself a few more precious seconds.
- Employ Inspiration to highlight valid words on the board just in case you get stumped.
