How to Play Outspell 


First you'll need to choose your desired difficulty. Then, spell your first word on the board, making sure that it touches the center space. 

Next, the computer will spell a word based upon yours. Continue building words until there are no more tiles available! 

During the spelling game, try to take advantage of the bonus spaces. Blue spaces multiply the value of the letter, while red spaces multiply the value of the whole word. As a fun twist, letters multiplied by bonus spaces hold that value the entire game! 

You can always exchange some of your letter tiles for new ones from the bag at the cost of your turn. There is also a dictionary tool that you can use to look up and validate potential word spellings. 


Outspell Dictionary   

 

There is a built-in dictionary in the Outspell game. Our game dictionary is based on the Collins Official Scrabble Words book.  

 

The Outspell game dictionary consists of more than 278,000 words and is based on the Collins Official Scrabble Words book. This book is the most comprehensive Scrabble wordlist ever, including English words from Australia, Canada, New Zealand, South Africa, UK, and the USA. This is the most comprehensive resource for Outspell players with more than 278,000 permissible words, including inflected forms. Keeping that in mind, the Outspell dictionary can sometimes have its flaws.  

Please note, offensive and profane words have been removed from Outspell 

You can check the validity of a word by selecting the "Dictionary" button located on the bottom right side of your game. Type the word in the search back to see if it's valid or not. 

 

 
If the word doesn't exist in the Collins Official Scrabble Words dictionary, it won't exist in the Outspell dictionary.

Scoring 

 

Here’s how Outspell’s scoring works: 

  • You score points when you submit valid words to the board. 

  • Each letter has a different point value displayed in the bottom right of the tile. Common letters provide lower points, while uncommon letters like Q provide 10 points.

If a tile is placed on top of a blue cell, its points would be multiplied by the number in the cell. 


 -> 


If any tile of a word is placed on a red cell, the entire word would be multiplied by the number in the cell.


 ->  


If you add new letters to an existing word, you gain points for every letter in that word. In the following example, only the S was added to the word TAG, but the points gained include the 4 points from the letters TAG. 


 


If adding new letters creates more than one word (through horizontal and vertical cross-sections), you gain points for every new word made. In the following example, adding the letters GAN formed 2 new words (LAG and GRAN), which scores points for both words.
