It covers Canadian and British terms with variant spellings. For quick, easy word validation, we provide an inflected form of the word along with a brief definition of the word. Recognized as a recreational and educational product by the North American SCRABBLE Players Association.

The Official Scrabble Word Finder

As we’ve said, The Official Scrabble Word Finder is the easiest tool there is with the possible exception of a hammer and nail. The Official Scrabble Word Finder unscrambles your letters while performing an exhaustive search through our Official Scrabble Dictionary to find words that win while also being sorted by word value and length. There are also other nifty little features for those players who need a bit more specificity with their winning tiles.   Starts With: allows the player to narrow their search by utilizing the letter that you ABSOLUTELY have to play in any particular hand.   Contains: for those who have a bit more wiggle room with their remaining tiles and want to find what options are available for offloading some tiles.   Ends With: this is a special one–say your opponent has played their hand and you’d like to build off their stack. Using this guarantees whatever words you find will make for the highest value play.   Length: When you’re approaching the endgame and all that’s keeping you from winning are not the letters themselves but the number of tiles.   Unsure whether the word you have in play is an actual word? Run it against The Official Scrabble Dictionary   Looking for casual clubs to join where you can connect with like-minded competitors as well as keep an ear to the ground for upcoming events?
