💡 FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Is there a multiplayer feature?

Scrabble GO currently supports two-player gameplay in Scrabble. Support for three or more players is unavailable, but we will continue gathering community feedback for future consideration.

How can I check if a word is available or not?

To check the validity of a word, simply place the tiles on the board. If the word is valid and can be played, it will be highlighted in green.

What are the gems for?

With Gems, among other things, you can purchase Chests in the shop that can give you tickets to access the Arena and cards to obtain new tiles. Also, with Gems, you can use the boosts.


What are the red tickets for?

The tickets are used to enter the tournaments in the Arena. These game modes grant you trophies that place you in a tournament’s ranking. When the tournaments are over, the better your rank, the better rewards you will receive! 

Why is there a limit on tickets I can have?

There are two different types of tickets in Scrabble GO. Tickets can be found in chests (received in Arena tournaments and other game modes). You can only collect up to 5 of those tickets.

The second type of ticket you get daily when you are a Scrabble Club member and in the chests you purchase from the shop. You can go above the cap ticket of 5 with those tickets.

Is there a list of all of the 2-letter words?

There is currently no in-game list of allowed words, but we may revisit this in the future.

Is there a skill-scoring system?

Scrabble Score is a personalized performance tracking and rating system for Scrabble GO. It tracks and measures your performance across all the various game modes of Scrabble GO and gives you a rating based on your performance. The more you play and the better you perform, the more your score will increase.

This feature is available when you reach level 10 in your player profile and is updated daily.

Is there a tile bag?

Yes, the tile bag is available in the bottom bar while you play a game of Scrabble.

Is there an in-game chat?

Yes, Chat is available in the top right corner of your scoring header when you play Scrabble games (speech bubble next to your profile picture)

Can I mute or report another player?

You can use MUTE, MUTE ALL, BLOCK, or REPORT if you need it in the chat options.

Mute –  Mute will hide the chat text and stop all notifications of any new chat from this opponent.

Mute All –  This option will block any communication with unknown opponents except Friends, Contacts, and Favorites. It can be activated and deactivated anytime from the Chat Options or the Privacy Settings.

Block – You will no longer receive game requests from the blocked players, and they will not see you in search results, recommendations, or view your online status. This is usually the best option if you choose not to interact with this opponent again. You may unmute or unblock a player at any time.

Report – This tool can be used in (but not limited to) instances of an offensive profile photo, harassment, sharing, or phishing of personal data. 

Can I change my profile picture?

Yes, you upload a new profile photo from your device by doing the following:

  1. Click on the Profile icon at the top left of your screen, then tap the camera icon on your profile image.
  2. Choose “Edit Photo”
  3. Click on “Upload”
  4. Choose “Existing Photo”
  5. Select your photo
  6. Click “Save.”

For Facebook Connected players, your current Facebook profile photo is used by default for your Scrabble profile picture.

Are there auto-generated players in Scrabble GO?

Players joining Scrabble GO for the very first time will have the option to accept a game from a computer-controlled opponent. For players newer to Scrabble, these opponents help introduce the gameplay. All players are allowed to decline these games, but we expect that many Scrabble players may enjoy practicing their skills against them. The game allows you to play with your friends or other matched opponents through matchmaking, which generally aligns with your overall skill level in-game. If no suitable match is available, you may be paired with an auto-generated opponent.
