Wordfeud Tips and Tricks
When you know the rules of Wordfeud, your vocabulary is increasing, you should start thinking about the tactics. Wordfeud is not only a word game, but also a math and strategic game. Start developing your tactical skills, and you will quickly become a better Wordfeud player, and improving your game drastically. We have put out some pointers for you to think about when playing, as a start.
- 1. Don´t let the opponent put a word that crosses a orange or red square/position. On a Standard board there are 8 such dangerous areas. Be careful playing words towards these areas. Wait until your opponent does it, and take advantage of it.
- 2. Save your good tiles so you can play 1 word with all your tiles in one play. This will trigger a Bingo and give you 40 extra points. Good tiles are normally letters that are included in many word endings. This makes it a lot easier to play 7 letter words.
- 3. Learn short words that include high valued letter. These are J, Q, X, Z. Use the search tool to identify possible words and learn them by heart.
- 4. Don´t hold back on your consonants, but be cheap with your vowels.
- 5. Play tight not to give your opponent the possibility to play Bingo.
- 6. If you can´t use your 7 tiles, don´t play 5 or 6. It´s easy for your opponent to get a long word with only a word ending if you play it up for him.
- 7. Play short words, in the area that´s already used, with not more than 1 tile sticking out from the area. This so your opponent can´t use it to play out and use the bonus squares.
- 8. Use the J well. It should be placed on a DL or TL square.
- 9. Don´t enter the endgame with only consonants. And definitely not with a X that won´t go out. Swap tiles before there are only 7 tiles left in the bag.
- 10. If you are unlucky with your starting tiles, swap as your first move. It´s often not many points to gather in the beginning, especially with a standard board.
- 11. Most car brands are allowed.
- 12. Try words even if you don´t know them. As you can try a word as many times you won´t, you don´t have anything to lose to try different combinations. That way you´ll also learn more words as you go.
- 13. Count the tiles that are played. Then you know what´s left and can use that when you think about what word you can play, and also what the opponent might have (late in the game).
- 14. Look for tales you can use, so you´ll play several words at the same time. You add one letter to an existing word, while you spell a new one away from that word.
- 15. Always look for TW and DW you can take advantage of. If you see an opening for playing on a DL or TL square, plan so you use your tiles with a high value on that specific square.
- 16. Learn unusual two letter words with high letter values that you can play close and on the excisting words on the board.
