Tips & Tricks
1. Smart Spellers See Sage (Green)
As you gather letters you might notice that some of them have green underlines. And when you get a new letter those underlines might change. What is it?
These green lines are a clue! Every letter with a green underline forms part of one word that you can make right then and there. More than likely you could make several words from those letters, but if you want points you want to go big!
If we rearrange the letters in the picture above, we get "octupling." It's a nine letter word, so we'll have to use it on the bottom two lines.
Whenever you're stuck just look for the green lines. Somehow, someway, they'll all make one word!
2. How To Find 12 Letter Words
Unless you're already a master wordsmith, you might think that coming up with a 12 letter word is incredibly difficult. There can't be that many 12 letter words around, right?
Believe it or not, in the English language there are over 11,000 words that are exactly 12 letters long! Really!
The key is to remember suffixes. A suffix is a group of letters with a set meaning that attach to the end of a word. Think of "-ed" in "rounded" or "-ing" in "fighting." Many players build a suffix first and then try to find a word that will attach to it.
In the table below there are a few suffixes and example words that contain them. There are dozens of suffixes, so please don't think that this is a full list! It's just something to get you started.
Hopefully this sparks your noggin and helps you think of other suffixes to look for!
3. Don't Rush
Whenever you make a word in Spell Squad it's automatically submitted to Winster for points. No "Cash In" button needed! This makes for faster games, but it also means that you have to be careful when you're setting up a long word. One trick is to make a nonsense word and then switch the letters one at a time.
If you accidentally make a word and it's one you never heard of, well, think of it as a way to expand your vocabulary!
4. Be Polite!
Always say "Thank you!" and "You're welcome!" when trading pieces! At Winster we make this incredibly easy. Just click on the "ty" or "yw" buttons and you'll automatically say "Thank you" or "You're welcome!"
To thank a specific person, click and hold on "ty." A list will pop up with the names of all of the players in the room!
When you don't say "Thank you!" you may appear a bit ungrateful. It pays to be polite!
That's all there is to know about Spell Squad! Get your thinking cap on and dive in!
