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 am sick to death of this problem in Word Whomp! I have reported it to EA games to no avail. HELP!

I am an extremely good player, so seeing this gives my ego a boost. I know, you think my ego doesn't need a boost. :roll: At any rate, sometimes you can't see it because the window with the bonus spinner comes on & blocks it out. One of the times I WAS able to see it, it showed a very insulting lower number than what I had actually won! However, the page that comes up to display the game score breakdown had the correct number, so I wasn't concerned. That is, of course until I realized that beside my name in the chat box, my token total only had the incorrect number added, not the correct larger number I was due. I started writing everything down, and sure enough...I was being short-changed on almost every Word Whomp game! Not all, but most. Most of my games I score very high, so this is a real issue with me. On almost every game, I was being shorted 2,3,or even 400 tokens! Is this being fixed or what? EA was no help at all. I did notice if I change rooms, it stops doing this, but only for a few games, then it's doing it again! I actually complained about it in the chat room, and other players said, Yeah, we know. Been complaining for years, Pogo doesn't care. I was shocked to get that response! Please push this issue with Pogo or EA. They apparently aren't listening to me. Thanks so much! :)


Pogo has a Token Limiter on many of their games. Some get around this by playing slower or by taking frequent breaks. Even changing rooms can reset the limiter so that it takes a bit longer to hit it.

By the way, the forums are a members-helping-members forum and not a direct link to Pogo. The only way to contact Pogo's Customer Service is through the help link.

Word Whomp • Re: Out-dated dictionary

By Mod_Aby » March 24th, 2017, 10:45 pm

Each Word Game on Pogo uses its own dictionary which was programmed in at the time of its development.

Therefore, while some words are accepted in one game they will not be accepted in another game.

Word Whomp is one of Pogo's older Word Games. It is unlikely that it will be reprogrammed at this time or in the foreseeable future.

If you would like to express your concern to Pogo, please use the help link at the top of the page. Click on help and then Contact Us on the next page.

Word Whomp • Out-dated dictionary

Please update your dictionary. Some words, which I KNOW are words have not been accepted.

Yes, that is correct. You cannot change the Theme in Word Whomp Whackdown.

Yes, I know, I already posted that I can't use Chrome because of Flash. And I had it in my mind and intended to say Whackdown, but left it out not on purpose, which is why I corrected myself. But, that doesn't address the reason I wrote it. I guess we cannot change the background in Whackdown - correct?

You posted in the Word Whomp forum, not Word Whomp Whackdown.

Word Whomp Whackdown is a Java game. Chrome no longer supports Java games so you need to use a browser such as Internet Explorer in order to play the Java games.

By vane jarekjh » March 24th, 2017, 8:51 am

I just tried now using both IE and Chrome and the Theme button is there, right above the basket with eggs, and is working right for me.
I changed and playing now using the Beach theme.

No idea why is not working for you, sorry
But I think the Easter theme is not so bad, is only a few color eggs here and there and not as intrusive as in other games (Xmas theme in Poppit)

I know that is how it's usually done, but I'm using IE and there is no theme button on my game window. That's why I asked. I can see no way to change it. Before the Easter design I did have a theme button. I can't use Firefox because of Java. Chrome doesn't work, either.

Just click 'New Game" until you get a puzzle that has one or more of those letters.

Word Whomp • no P O G O letters in games

By cm57bs » March 23rd, 2017, 9:14 pm

:x Played 8 games in a row. None of them had P.O.G.O. at all. You would think that you would have at least 1 per game.
