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 top 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! If you reach the "Last Word" in this witty word game, you will be rewarded with 200 more tokens!


Jackpot!
If you munch your "Spin" carrot, the Jackpot Spinner will spin as soon as your current word game ends.

If the Jackpot Spinner lands on the word "JACKPOT," you'll win the jackpot amount shown on the left side of the game . The Jackpot gets bigger every second, so the longer you play, the more you can win.

Here are some additional pointers designed to help you become a more advanced Word Whomp player.

All words in the puzzle contain 3 - 6 letters. Proper names and abbreviations don't count.

Skill Level 1 is easiest, so try this level first. When you've mastered the basics, move on to a higher skill level. At the higher skill levels, your potential token bonus is greater.

If you're stumped, click the MIX UP button. When your letters switch places, you can often find words that you may have overlooked. You can click the MIX UP button as often as you wish.

After you reach the "Spin" carrot, longer words will earn you more tokens than shorter words. So always look for 5- and 6-letter words while entering shorter words.

Words are listed alphabetically within each bracket of 3, 4, 5, and 6 letter words. Use this to your advantage as you try to spell the last few words in the game.

At the end of each word game, look closely at the words you didn't find. These words will probably show up in future puzzles

The Word Whomp dictionary does not include every word in the English language - instead, only those words that are in relatively common usage are included.

If there's a "s" in the puzzle, don't forget to add it to as many words as you can to make plurals!

Word Whomp • Re: The Napa Ads

By SoapiePlay » January 19th, 2017, 10:06 pm

I have already tried this. There are options to pick from. Your instructions do not tell me which to pick. If I pick the wrong one, I could impair my system.

You don't know Napa has a header pretty much full time on top of the game? Without seeing it, I know it's there since the computer freezes. I can't even shut off WordWhomp - frozen.

I have to wait for the small window after the ad and before the ad reruns.

Word Whomp • Re: The Napa Ads

I cannot figure out how to do a screen capture. I don't know why you don't about the Napa ads. The ad runs about a minute, then reruns a minute later. I cannot play WordWhomp anymore. It only allows me about a minute playing time.

Could you please provide us with a screenshot of what the ad looks like?

If you don't know how to, you can visit: https://www..com/. You'll need to upload the photo to an image hosting website like http://www.POGO.com or http://www.photobucket.com.

I know exactly how you feel - I had the same issue with it and rarely got all the words.
I don't play that game anymore - too frustrating

I prefer Boggle Bash :)

Word Whomp • WORDS NOT TURNING OVER

By bbmks3bys » January 18th, 2017, 5:47 pm

Am I just typing too fast and the game not keeping up? It makes the sound that the word I typed was there, but when the timer runs out it shows them in missed words. When the I take the time to make sure they post, I often have to do them again. Is anyone else having this problem?

Word Whomp • The Napa Ads

By SoapiePlay » January 18th, 2017, 3:08 pm

Whenever the Napa ad comes on the top header, my game freezes. The ad plays over and over so I have to quit. Does this happen to other players?

Unable to connect to the server

Sorry! For some reason we're unable to load your game. Most likely, one of our servers is temporarily down. We apologize for the inconvenience.

It happened whole day today - hope some one look into it.

I have a different challenge problem. there is a newer M & M challenge called SHORT & SWEET "
yoi have to find 100, 3 letter words that start with a " Y " ( can you just imagine ! ? ! ? ! )
there surely aren't many Y words of any size., not ot mention 3 letters
I clicked through, maybe 40 puzzles, b/4 I found a Y. I got 2 words, they didn't count
I thought maybe I read it wrong & went back & looked ( also made sure it was activated.
so I went back to the game, thinking it was just some little glitch.. I clicked through
maybe another 30 or so puzzles, b/4 finding another Y I got 5 words this time.
those didn't count either.. I have played this game A LOT & I do know how to get out
with my word counts intact. this is gonna be a long enough Challenge, without
the ' glitch '

Oh, Crochetinc, that is an " r " (R) not a Y. You need to find 100 3 letter words that start with an R.

I just finished playing for the Flood of "C's" Badge - Spell 50 4-letter words that start with letter 'c' in 3 weeks! I had no troubles with the timer nor did I have any troubles typing the letters.

Challenges aside - I MUST agree with Wendybear & KeithEdw.....Clock keeps ticking no matter how quickly you click on the letters and they DO NOT REGISTER. Typing in the words is not an option because you cant type fast enough. Maybe it's not rigged, but it sure is not player friendly. Bummer - because I like Pogo, but NOBODY ever fixes ANYTHING :cry:

Make sure the challenge has been activated and that you are playing on Skill Level 2.

Also, click on the Challenges Tab underneath the game. Hover your mouse pointer over the challenge and see if it has been previously earned.

If so, It will show you the date when it was first won.

If you've previously won that challenge you will not get another badge for replaying it, but you will get a x2 next to the original badge.
