Wordfeud

Wordfeud Game Overview

Wordfeud is a multiplayer word game that is similar to Scrabble and Words With Friends, but with its own unique twists and perks. Looking at a Wordfeud gameboard upon first glance may appear almost exactly like the other word board games you’re already familiar with. However, Wordfeud gives you the option to customize your very own board game! You can play with your friends, or you can play with complete strangers if you’re craving a more adventurous challenge. All you need to do is register with your email and create your own nickname. You can play up to 30 games at a time, which means you can have multiple games going on with both friends and strangers to keep your vocabulary booming. The game was developed by Haakon Bertheussen and can be played on the iPhone, Android or Windows Phone 7. What’s even cooler is that you can play Wordfeud in any of the following languages, Danish, Dutch, English, French, Norwegian, Spanish and Swedish. The Dutch dictionary on Wordfeud was created by TaalTik, which used OpenTaal dictionary for the majority of its word content, there’s more on that to come!

Wordfeud Rules

  1. You have the choice between a Standard Board or a Random Board.
  2. Each player will be given 7 tiles to begin with, and should always refill their rack after each play until they have 7 tiles once more. When the tiles are finished in the game, the players will use what is left until you or the opponent wins. 
  3. The player who initiates the game makes the first move.
  4. The first tiles laid out on the board must cover the star in the middle of the board.
  5. Words can be played horizontally or vertically, but can not be played backwards or from the bottom up. 
  6. Once the first word is laid out, you can only play a word connecting to the existing word/words on the board. 
  7. You have 72 hours to play a word, otherwise you will forfeit the game.
  8. Each tile has value, both consonants and vowels. Add up the sum of the letters for your total points earned during that round. 
  9. A blank tile, AKA a wildcard, is worth 0 points, but can be used as any letter. 
  10. DL stand for Double Letter value, TL is Triple Letter value, DW is Double Word count and TW is Triple Word count. If you cover two TW spaces on the board with one word, first triple the value of the word, and then triple it again.
  11. When you use all 7 tiles in one shot it’s called a ‘BINGO’. Add 40 points.
  12. The player is allowed to pass their turn if they cannot form a word, three passes in a row is a loss. Alternatively, a player can opt to swap tiles instead of a play. 
    (Hint: with a word finder you’ll be able to find words with the tiles you have and will never need to skip a turn!)
