When playing live Scrabble or trying to solve 4 Pics 1 Word challenge, isn’t it so much better if you had help? You don’t have to go at it alone—let Word Descrambler convert jumbled letters for you and make them make sense.
Some people call it cheating, but we call the support Word Descrambler provides vocabulary empowerment. After all, the strategy to win is still yours to execute.
This fine and dandy WordsRated tool is not at all a complicated piece of virtual gadgetry. That said, it’s not basic either, as alongside the letters primary function, Word Descrambler also offers various advanced functions that give you what you need, and fast!
How to use Word Descrambler like a pro
To descramble letters or anagrams, the first thing you need to do is use the letters field. You’re allowed to input as many as 15 letters in this field.
Results returned by Word Descrambler are legal words, which means their validity will never be put into question. Also, the default grouping of returned words is by length.
Let’s use “hloysru” as an example. Typing in these letters in the letters field results in quite a number of legal words, with “hourly” and “sourly” as the longest.
If you feel like playing a word from the other sets (5 letters, 4 letters, etc.), scroll down and choose whichever works best at the moment.
Now if you prefer to get results of a certain length, input a number in the length field. For example, entering “4” in the box returns the 4-letter category exclusively.
Word Descrambler’s letters function also allows up to 2 wildcards. Denoted by the question mark “?” symbol, a wildcard generates valid terms with a random letter included.
You can type it anywhere in the letters field as long as there’s no space before or after it. Take a look at this example for your reference:
What’s the point of using wildcards, you ask? Most Scrabble-like games give out blank tiles, each of which can be assigned a letter of your choice. When you get one, don’t forget to add a wildcard in the letters field.
After the initial turn in a live game of Words With Friends or Scrabble, the only way to move forward is to play a word that makes use of an existing letter already on the board.
The starts with advanced option is remarkable at this task. For instance, inputting “f” in the field provided yields all sorts of words beginning with that letter.
If what you’re playing is a standard game of US Scrabble, spelling “flushy” on the board should earn you 15 points. By the way, the highlighted number beside each word refers to the points you can earn.
Also, note that Word Descrambler’s starts with function can operate independently. Try it for yourself with the letter of your choice, and see what new words you can learn!
When you know that one of the letters already at play can give you the edge if you use it as the ending letter of your next word, make full use of the ends with field.
For this example, let’s say the competition tried to shock you by playing “bam” on the Scrabble board. You can choose any of the three letters as your ending letter here, but for the sake of this demonstration, let’s go with “b.”
Typing “b” in the ends with field will you give access to words such as “shlub,” a derogatory term that means “worthless,” and “shrub,” which can either be a type of plant or a kind of alcoholic drink.
And then there’s the contains field, which can help you dominate the crossword board by using two or more letters at play to your advantage.
For instance, if you enter “in” in the contains field, you’ll be able to catch your opponent off guard by slapping on the board either of the words found under the 6-letter set. (We prefer “rhinos,” though.)
There are two things you need to know about the contains advanced option: 1) The order of the letters you type in its field will be preserved, and 2) Just like the starts with function, it can return words on its own.
The exclude field does what its name suggests—it’ll return words that don’t contain the letter or letters you want omitted.
Wordle fans will have a blast with this feature as it’s designed to unravel the game’s daily mystery word in as few turns as possible.
At any time during your descrambling of words, you can arrange your results in a few ways using the sort words function. The default view is alphabetical or A – Z, but you’re free to reverse that order by clicking Z – A on the menu.
The option called points is self-explanatory in that it’ll rearrange returned words by unit of scoring. This is the sorter for you if you want to play only the highest pointers from start to finish.
Word Descrambler, by default, also categorizes generated terms by length (an option under group words). If you wish to examine all words in one go, no grouping is what you need to select.
