Overview

Lovers of Scrabble® and other language-based games will boost their chances to win with these huge, incredibly thorough word lists. Study them to increase your vocabulary, especially of words with hard-to-use “J,” “Q,” “X,” and “Z,” to understand the different letter combinations that frequently come up, and to get more “hooks,” those letters that can extend words already on the board for extra points. There’s a “cheat sheet” that includes 2 and 3 letter words and their hooks, vowel dumps, and more. Load up on vowel-heavy words, including ones with multiple “I”s and “U”s. Find out which short words don’t take S endings, or which finish in a surprise “S.” Get the best of the bingos, as well as alphagrams. The introduction comes from World Scrabble® Champion Brian Cappelletto.
