WordyBot: WordFinder’s New Secret Weapon Powered by Artificial Intelligence
Created by Nadia Rodriguez for WordFinder
Smarter Than Your Average Player?
First things first. You’ll want to get the WordFinder app on your mobile device of choice. Once you’ve got it all downloaded and installed, select Words With Friends from the game selection screen. You’ll find the same kind of Words With Friends cheat to unscramble letters as on this website. Enter the letters you have and the tool finds words with those letters.
A major advantage of the WordFinder app is the Words With Friends board solver. Instead of entering letters, you upload a screenshot of your Words With Friends game board. It’ll then find the highest scoring words, accounting for the letters already on the board.
The super smart WordyBot takes another giant leap forward, thanks to its cool artificial intelligence. It looks not just for the highest value words, but also for the smartest move you can make. In other words, WordyBot thinks strategically beyond the current turn to improve your chances of winning.
Behold the AI Genius of WordyBot
The best way to understand the incredible potential of WordyBot is with an example. If you want to win every game of Words With Friends, you’ll want to have WordyBot in your corner.
In this first set of screenshots, you can see the WordFinder app’s board solver in action. Playing the word “QUAERE” nets an impressive 75 points. That’s the most points you can score given the letter tiles in your rack and on the board. But… WordyBot has identified a more strategic play. What could it be?
WordyBot suggests that you should play the word “FERE” instead. It scores 3 fewer points, landing you 72 points instead of 75. But, it offers an overall strategic advantage. You’ll notice that the letter F lands on the triple letter (TL) bonus square, and you still get to use the triple word (TW) bonus square.
Reasons Why This Play Is Better
Why should you give up three points in playing the word “FERE” instead of “QUAERE,” the higher value word?
It preserves the synergy between two remaining letters: A and Q. These letters tend to go together, like in AQUA or EQUATE. Keeping them together makes it easier to play them together later on in the game.
It saves your wildcard for a future turn. You may score 3 fewer points with FERE, but that wildcard can come in very handy in a future turn. With that wildcard, you’ll likely have the potential to improve a future turn by far more than 3 points.
Another reason not listed here is that playing FERE preserves the letter Q for you. Words with Q can be worth a lot of points, especially if you can capitalize on bonus squares. Since you can almost get as many points without using it here, you save that high scoring potential for a future turn.
You see, in terms of long term strategy, playing the highest scoring word isn’t always the best possible decision. In this case, the better word still plays in the same board location, but that won’t always be the case. More strategic play requires more deliberate thinking. And WordyBot can help guide your thought process with its impressive artificial intelligence.
