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!

I'm sure that Pogo Tech's would have no difficulty with programming the frequency of the Ad's, if that was all there is to it.
But, if the Company that puts an Ad on Pogo want's it to be displayed at certain times, then Pogo has to do just that or not have the Ad, nor the revenue. Not revenue. Not Free play.

I am not a member so I must deal with all the ads. I understand they pay for free play. BUT - WHY can't pogo figure out a way to have the ads NOT screw up the games??? In Word Whomp the ads glitch so much the words freeze but the timers keeps ticking and the game is lost because the letters cannot keep up. Surely you have programmers who are savyy enough to solve this ongoing problem. Speak with Customer Care?- Help? - Ea??? Forget it!!! It's always NOT their problem. Then - -whose is it??? I can't tell you how frustrating this is. :x

Word Whomp • Re: Game Loads Slowly, Then Flash Crashes

By Mod_Jada » July 17th, 2017, 7:38 am

The games are working properly.

Make sure that you clear your browser's cache daily.

Also clear your Flash cache daily as it fills up quickly.

It's also a good idea to clear your browser's cache and your Flash cache right before or immediately after a long play session.

See below for instructions:

How To Clear Your Browser's Cache

How To Clear Flash Cache

Also make sure you have the latest Flash version: 26.0.0.137 Check your version in the link below:

Flash Player

Lastly, you could try using a browser other than the one you normally use to see if you have better results.

Word Whomp • Game Loads Slowly, Then Flash Crashes

By KookMop » July 16th, 2017, 11:25 pm

For about the last 5 days, the room takes 10-20 minutes to load (if not longer). Then, after playing for a while, the game freezes up, and I get a Flash Crash report. Is Pogo aware of this problem, and are they doing anything to correct it? This only happens to me with Word Whomp. I have 3 other games that I play daily and have a little problem with them loading, but not as drastic an amount of time as when I play Word Whomp.

By the way, both my Java and Flash are updated.

I would appreciate anyone else letting me know if they're also having this problem.

Word Whomp • Attention - Chrome 59

By Pogo_Llama » June 30th, 2017, 9:08 pm

Hello Pogo community,

The most recent update to the Google Chrome browser to Chrome 59 has resulted in loading errors for many of Pogo games, specifically table games where you can play vs. a bot or a person.

We are aware of this issue and are working on a fix to it. During this time, we ask that you play those specific games on a different browser such as Microsoft Edge, Mozilla Firefox, or Internet Explorer.

Thank you and we sincerely apologize for the inconvenience.

Word Whomp • Re: game does not reload

By cageypdx » June 29th, 2017, 3:30 am

I tried the flags suggestion and it didn't work. I hadn't noticed the red box next to the star until I read about that in the suggestions. When I clicked the red box, I went to manage add ons and turned off the notify for flash, reloaded and it worked.

This potential solution did not work for me.
I use Chrome on a somewhat elderly Mac, lol.
But, the chrome://flags, scroll to flash, enable - worked great and solved the problem when Word Whomp would not load.
Glad and somewhat stunned I found this solution. There are so many posts in the forums that it is difficult to find solutions.
Many thanks to the moderator who posted this solution!! You made my day :) :)

Word Whomp loaded fine for me when I tried it just now.

Here is what I do if a game doesn't load for me:

I leave the page and return to the home page.
I go back to the game and it usually loads on the second try.
If it doesn't load on the second try I repeat the process and it always loads on the third try.

Try that and see if it helps.

You could also try using a browser other than the one you normally use to see if a game will load.
