How to Use Our Word Finder

The WordFinder word search unscrambles your letters, searches our Words With Friends®, Wordscapes®, Word Chums® or Scrabble® dictionary for words that win, and gives them to you sorted by word length and point value. Our word finder tool couldn’t be any easier to use!

For a more detailed explanation of how to use our word finder tool, including some examples, read our inside guide on how to use WordFinder over on the blog.

Make Words With These Letters

This is really at the heart of the WordFinder Scrabble® cheat tool. You give us letters and we tell you how to make a word with these letters.

  • See that big search field there? That’s where you enter your letters, as many as 20 characters at a time if that’s what you want to do.
  • As part of those up to 20 letters, you can also include wildcards. These represent the blank tiles you get in games like Words With Friends® and Scrabble GO®. Enter a question mark (?) or a space to indicate a wildcard. Wildcards can be used as any letter, and you’ll see them as blue letters on the unscramble results page.
  • Before you hit that search button, be sure to double-check the selected Game Dictionary. Some words may be valid in some games but not others, and the scoring system varies between games too.

Advanced Search Features

Want to be more specific in the words you want to find? No problem! The advanced search features in our word solver are designed for exactly that purpose.

  • Starts with: Limit your search results only to words that start with a certain letter or letters.
  • Contains: Find words that contain a certain letter or set of letters.
  • Ends in: Look for words that end in a particular letter or combination of letters.
  • Length: Search for words that are a specific length.

You can use any of these advanced search functions in combination with one another too!

Word Games for All Ages

One of the great things about word games is that they can be enjoyed by players of all ages. As language is such a critical part of everyday life, regardless of what you do or where you live, word games offer an opportunity to flex those language-twisting muscles in a fun and engaging way!

Remember that while word games can certainly take on the form of more traditional board games or card games, they aren’t restricted to those formats either. Did you know that there are tons of great Alexa word games you can play using only your voice? How awesome is that?

Word Games to Play With Kids

Learning can be hard, so why not make it fun? Even though young children may not be quite able to read complex words or unscramble letters to form a 7-letter bingo bonus word in Scrabble®, they can still play age-appropriate word games. In fact, YourDictionary has a list of games to play with children to build vocabulary!

Some fun options to consider include:

  • Vocabulary Jeopardy: Set it up like the popular game show, except the clues are vocabulary words and correct responses are the words’ definitions.
  • Prefix/Suffix Game: Make a list of prefixes and suffixes on index cards. Kids must then come up with as many words as they can that start with each prefix or suffix.
  • Alphabet Game: This is a popular spoken word game you can play anywhere. Name a category, like “animals” or “food,” and players take turns coming up with words in that category in alphabetical order.

Word Game Apps for Adults

The great power of technology has empowered word game enthusiasts to play their games anywhere. And these games are getting better all the time too!

  • Scrabble GO: This official Scrabble app offers a fresh take on the classic word game, including several new modes and power-ups.
  • Wordscapes: Want to take a more relaxed approach that’ll still challenge your word knowledge? Link letters and form words while solving a crossword puzzle without the clues.
  • CodyCross: Offering a new twist on the crossword puzzle, CodyCross challenges you with crossword clues as your alien friend explores new worlds.

Word Games for Senior Brain Training

Older players can find some awesome word games to keep their minds sharp while having a lot of fun too. Indeed, word games are one of the best ways to boost brainpower, particularly among seniors.

  • Daily Word Search: In addition to the word search you might find in your daily newspaper, there are many apps and websites with word searches too.
  • Mahjong Words: Instead of finding matching pairs of tiles from the classic Chinese game, this version challenges players to form words using letter tiles.
  • Wheel of Fortune: Whether you’re playing along at home while watching the game show on TV or you’re playing your own game via the mobile app, Wheel of Fortune is well worth a spin.

From crossword puzzles to word search finders, word jumbles, anagrams and more, there’s a word game for everyone regardless of age or skill level. You just have to get in there and play!

Benefits of Word Games for Everyone

There are lots of reasons to play Words With Friends® and other similar word games. You’re taking the opportunity to scour through your existing word knowledge to defeat the competition, all while learning some new words along the way. It’s no surprise that people have been playing Scrabble® for generations.

While some people might say that using a word finder tool is really a Scrabble® cheat tool, it’s really about finding the best possible moves to take advantage of the best possible opportunities. And, along the way, you’ll learn some new words, confirm your existing vocabulary, and brush up on your spelling too.

Boosting Puzzle Solving Skills

Naturally, a big part of playing word games has to do with the words. And knowing words. And knowing which words to use for the most possible points. That’s obvious enough. But, another big part of word games is how you can flex some of your puzzle solving skills too. This takes some creative, critical thinking.

Take Wordscapes as an excellent example. The game may present you with five or six letters, but it’s up to you to find what words you can make with those letters. And, those words have to fit into the interconnected puzzle above. When you get stuck, you can find a word by using our word finder.

Expanding Vocabulary

With games like Scrabble GO® and Words With Friends®, it’s easy enough to remember common words to play like “cat” or “house.” But, when you’re restricted to only a handful of letters and you’re trying so hard to reach that triple word score, you may stumble across new vocabulary words almost accidentally.

This is one of the great advantages of word game apps, because they automatically check the validity of your word before you can play it. This encourages some trial and error and, as a result, you’ll learn some new words along the way. Did you know that “qanat” and “qintars” are great Q-words for big points!

Supplementing Education Resources

Word games, in and of themselves, can never replace a standard classroom curriculum. They can, however, be a great way to bring classroom learnings to life, really helping to solidify vocabulary (and trivia) among students.

Rote memorization is one thing, but it’s the application of that knowledge where students really come to understand the material. Word games are meant to be fun. Playing around with anagrams and jumble solvers is a great way to supplement lessons on phonics, diphthongs, and all sorts of other spelling and grammar concepts.

Play Strategy and Scrabble Cheat Tools

Just as word games like Wordscapes® are great for puzzle solving, more competitive word games like Scrabble® can also test your strategic thinking. Sometimes, playing a big six-letter word might not be the best play, because it may not take advantage of bonus squares, for example. Or, in some cases, it may open up those bonus squares for your opponent.

Using a Scrabble® cheat tool like our word unscrambler can give you a leg-up, because it can help you uncover some of your best options. At the same time, it’s up to you to think critically to determine what is the best strategic move. It’s like playing chess, but with letter tiles!

Find Words to Win With Powerful Word Lists

“What do you read, my lord?” Polonius asks in Shakespeare’s famous play Hamlet. To which, Hamlet simply replies, “Words, words, words.” Yes, they’re “just” words, but we also know all too well how the pen is mightier than the sword! So, to conquer games and vanquish your foes, you’ll need to arm yourself with the mightiest words of them all.

Need more help? No problem. WordFinder provides word lists full of power plays that will take your word game skills to the next level. WordFinder has an unbeatable collection of word lists for word games. These lists can help prepare you for the challenges ahead, ensuring you’ll have just the right word to play at just the right moment.

Browse our word lists to find those high-scoring words. Or, if you know which letters you need help with, you can try some of these popular choices:

The WordFinder Scrabble Dictionary

Just because you know a word doesn’t mean that you’ll necessarily be able to play that word! That’s why it’s in your best interest to play around with our Scrabble® cheat tool to find the words you can actually play in your favorite word games.

Did you know that the words you find in the Scrabble dictionary aren’t necessarily the same as the ones you can play in Words With Friends®? And there are differences between the Scrabble US® and Scrabble UK® dictionaries too. That’s why it’s so important to check, both for the validity of the word and the number of points it’ll score. The letter tile values are different in Scrabble® and Words With Friends® too.

A great example of these differences is the word “wordfinder.” Curiously enough, “wordfinder” is perfectly playable -- and good for 19 points -- in Words With Friends®. However, it’s not a valid word in the Scrabble US® or Scrabble UK® dictionaries! The best you can do in Scrabble® with those same letters is “frownier” (8 letters, 14 points).

Learning that hard truth might make you sad, but having WordFinder by YourDictionary at your fingertips will surely put a smile on your face. Good luck and have fun!
