Overview

WordWarrior is a fast-moving, high-scoring game where players earn points are by submitting words formed from a letter queue.

There are 20 rounds of play in every game of WordWarrior.

 

 


Letter Queue

The Letter Queue, which players use to form words, may consist of 60, 90, 120 or 150 letters.

The individual letters in each queue are randomly selected using a frequency that approximates the number of times each letter appears in the English language.

Most WordWarrior games use 120 letters in each queue.

 


Letter Timer

The Letter Timer used in each round of play is set according to the number of letters in the Letter Queue.

 

Settings:

Letters 60 90 120 150
Timer (secs) 48 72 96 120

 


Entering Words

Although words may be entered in the Word grid by clicking letters in the Letter grid, it is much faster using the keyboard to type in words. But each letter that is typed must correspond to a letter in the current Letter grid.

Once a word is complete in the Word grid, press {ENTER} on the keyboard to submit the word to the game host.

Alternatively, a word can also be submitted by clicking the ENTER button on the Toolbar.

Once a word is submitted, remaining letters in the Letter grid shift to the left, and the next letters in the Letter Queue fill the empty spaces.

New words may be entered as long as the Letter Timer hasn't expired and at least 3 letters remain in the Letter Queue.

 


Valid Words

Valid words must exist in the ChatGames' Online Dictionary, which is modeled on the The Official Scrabble Players Dictionary and is frequently updated with new words as they are added to the modern English language.

Proper nouns and abbreviations are never accepted as valid words.

Any invalid submission incurs a penalty. (see WordWarrior Scoring)

 


Centipede

Most WordWarrior games are classified as "Centipede" games.

Scores achieved in Centipede games are credited to a player's monthly point total. These games are denoted on the  Live Game Schedule with an asterisk. (ie., WordWarrior*)
