Hi, I'm Aubrey for About.com. Today, I'm going to share some beginner strategies to keep in mind when playing Scrabble.

Scrabble Strategy Basics

Tip 1: Use the premium squares on the Scrabble board to your advantage. The colorful squares on the board are multipliers. Arranging high point words or letters over these squares can really improve your overall score. Also, keep in mind that you want to prevent other players from easily accessing these squares.

Tip 2: Try to achieve a rack with balanced letters. You want to focus on earning a high score, while also considering the letters you are leaving on your rack for future plays.

Tip 3: Do your best to remain neutral about the results. If you keep a clear head, you can transform failures into learning opportunities, while continuing to make good decisions in the moment. You'll also help prevent your opponent from anticipating your next play.

Tip 4: Brush up on your vocabulary. If you invest time learning new words, it can dramatically improve your game. Consider learning words that will earn you high points, or get you out of a tight spot (such as words full of vowels, comprised of consonants, and even two letter words).

Tip 5: Use hooks. You create a hook when you add a letter to an already existing word. This enables you to earn points for both the new word you created and the already existing word you modified.

Tip 6: Use and Parallel words. Playing a word parallel on the board next to an already existing word can earn you lots of points. It's handy in this situation to know two and three letter words. Be sure that any adjoining letters both vertically and horizontally make up words.

Tip 7: Don't always play the first word that comes to mind. Take a step back and consider all of your possibilities. You may discover a better approach.
