Hints for Scramble with Friends

If you enjoy Words With Friends, now it is time to download Scramble With Friends. Each game is three, two-minute rounds that you can play with your Facebook friends or random opponent.  You must wait for your opponent to finish a round before you can play the next round like Words With Friends.

With some  Scramble With Friends hints you will be the top player of all your friends!

Tip #1: Tokens

The first difference between Words With Friends and Scramble With Friends is the tokens, which may limit yout ability to find words during your turn. Most likely developed by Zynga as a way to create profit from the game, there are ways around it.

Limit your games to the people you want to play with.  Each time you play a round, you must play a token.  To add a secondary power up (which we will talk about later) you need to use an extra token.

But don’t worry too much.  In the free version, every twenty minutes you earn a token until you have as many as fifteen.  You can also buy more tokens for real cash.

Tip #2: Power Ups

Power Ups

Scramble With Friends has three different power ups.  They are freeze, inspiration and scramble.  Each one is exactly as it sounds: freeze will freeze the timer, inspiration will give you three words and scramble will rotate the board.

You are allowed one power up during each round and for an extra token, you can choose a second one.  If you are playing an opponent who is skilled, it is worth it to use a second power-up.  You can also select the same power-up twice, if you find one more helpful than the others. 

Tip #3: Two Letter Words

Just like Words With Friends, two letter words are extra helpful!  With only two minutes to create as many words as you can, two letter words can really add up.  Most puzzles have 300+ possible words and many of them are two letter combinations.

Do not be afraid to try two consonant or two vowel combinations.  There are a few unexpected combinations that will surprise you.

Tip #4: Double/Triple Word/Letters

Again, like Words With Friends, round two and three  feature double and triple combinations that help boost your score.  Players can easily earn a score in the third round that is three times their score of the first round.

Tip #5: Plurals 

Almost all the grids have at least one “s”.  So most words you create can double your score by adding an “s” to the end of it.  While not as easy to do as it is with Words With Friends, you can help increase your score with one simple letter.

Scramble with Friends is an addicting game that will be the next Words With Friends!
