The object of Word Whomp™ is to make as many words as you can from the six letters in the middle of the screen. Words must have at least 3 letters, and they can’t be proper names, abbreviations, or contractions.
Make words by clicking the letters in order. For example, if you wish to spell “CAT,” click (or type) the letter “C” first; then “A”; and then “T.”
When you finish making a word, click the on screen ENTER button or press the “Enter” key. If the word is in the puzzle, the word will appear on the signs at the bottom of the screen. Spelling words will advance the digging gopher towards the veggies and token bonuses.
As soon as you reach the “Spin” carrot, you’ll receive 10, 50, or 100 tokens (depending on the difficulty level), a jackpot spin, and tokens for each additional word you find! Reach the “Last Word” and you will be rewarded with 200 more tokens!

Word Whomp Tips & Hints
Rank progress in Word Whomp is based on the number of words you correctly find. If you are new or bad at word games, there are programs on the web that allow you to type in a number of letters, and it will list the words that you can make.
However, most people do not need to use these things as they can make enough words to get a jackpot spin once they are used to the Word Whomp dictionary. You should be able to memorize the common 3 and 4 letter words, and add an -s or -ed to common words to make new words.
You should also link words in your mind that have the same letters. For example, most people might find the word “GUN” but forget the word “GNU”. However, if you link the two words in your mind and always type gnu when you type gun, your words will add up quickly.
Other common groups are:
EAR, ARE, ERA
RAT, TAR, ART
RAIL, LAIR, RIAL, LIAR, LIRA
It might help to keep a text file of your common groups, too.
If you get stuck, press “New Game”! There’s no point in sitting there, trying to get one more word when you could be getting 20 more on your next game.
You may also find an anagrammer or word finder may help. WinEveryGame is one that a lot of Pogo players use.
