The Web's Most Comprehensive Word Solver Site
This word solver is intended to help you unscramble letters to make words. This is part of our larger collection of puzzle solver tools. This particular word solver is designed to help you unscramble words for a word jumble puzzle, word puzzle, or scrabble game. In addition to this word unscrambler, we have other tools you can use to guess missing letters, solve boggle, and crack letter codes & ciphers. Works for word scramble puzzles as well.
To use the word solver, enter your letters in the big friendly green box. The anagram solver behind the scenes will generate a list of words you can create from those letters. The results will be sorted by word length, in descending order (so 5 letter words, then 4 letter words, etc.) The word maker will usually give you multiple word options for each word length, if you are trying to fit a word into a word puzzle.
The solver supports wildcards (blank tile if you are playing a scrabble game). These are considered to be any possible letter and the letter in the result will be highlighted in the answer. This word maker should be enough to solve any word scramble puzzle.
We have created several versions of the jumbled word solver to help you with different challenges. These word finder tools are a powerful extension to our jumble word solver. Just another way to unscramble word ideas.
First, there is our scrabble solver. This scrabble word finder takes the same dictionary and anagram engine behind the word solver and adapts it into a scrabble cheat tool. The results are ranked by points, so the highest scoring words are shown first. The same engine also works as text twist solver or words with friends cheat (with different scrabble word points values). These anagram tools are enough to give you a commanding advantage in any word game you wish to deploy them in. No matter how much opponents jumble the rules.
Moving to Hangman and crossword puzzle games, we have a hangman solver which can double as a crossword tool. Enter the pattern from the crossword (letters you know and missing letters) and the word generator will present you with a list of options. Use the crossword clue to narrow your guess. If the clue isn't enough, consider solving part of the word (via another word) and revisiting your results with fewer missing letters. This should cover your crossword solver needs. These use the same dictionary as the jumble word tools.
For advanced pattern matching (multiple word puzzles, substitution ciphers), we have other tools. Check out our word solver for wheel of fortune that can handle multiple words. Filter the multiple word answers by what sounds most natural in a sentence. (Assessing if an answer would fit into meaningful sentences is a great solution filter; that's how many machine code-breakers work). If you are trying to match a pattern of unknown letters (eg. an 5 letter word, first and last letter the same), check out our cryptogram solver. This can be used to get help with cryptic crossword puzzles and similar advanced word puzzles. You can use this to solve puzzles where you know the vowel positions but not the other letters.
If you want to step up from our jumble solver think in more than one dimension, check out our boggle word solver. We have three versions - varying by the size of the word grid which you are searching. These are fed into our anagram engine to look for possible words. When you think about it, boggle is just a multi-dimensional jumble word puzzle. Same dictionary, different layout.
Word Game Design Applications (Word Maker Tools)
If you like solving word scramble puzzles, check out our new word scramble game . We did give a little additional help by color-coding the correct letters (green means you got it, red means keep trying). By the way, these are designed to make it hard to use a word solver to cheat. (the upside of being a wordsolver; you know how to block another wordsolver).
We actually do timed research on the human ability to solve scrambled word puzzles. Many of the best word solvers have worked out human versions of computer algorithms for searching a large set of valid word possibilities (dictionary x board) for fitting a word into an established puzzle space. This applies to all kinds of puzzles based on scrambled letters, ranging from the daily jumble to multi-dimensional scrabble games.
This type of thinking becomes extremely important when you're working on game design and usability. Ever have someone give you a puzzle that was just impossible to crack? Even with a solver tools such as a scrabble word finder or similar word maker? Puzzle difficulty is actually a big deal for game designers. On one hand, you want to give the audience enough of a challenge so they don't get bored. On the other, you want to avoid failure on the first pass, before someone gets invested in solving the app. Word finder tools are a mixed blessing in this environment, since they help with the latter but hurt you on the former. Sometimes the longest word isn't the best word for a jumble answer.
We've actually done studies to "calibrate" the degree of difficulty in a puzzle game. This comes from showing jumbled word or cipher puzzles to people and watching how often they are solved. Along with testing changes in the word list (scrabble dictionary). You can give the audience hints (a piece of the pattern or a clue) that help them get started with solving the puzzle. Remember, if you make the jumbled letters too hard they'll start using a solver tool (a word finder tool).
Bet you didn't know there was all this science in word jumbles and crossword answers....
Other Word Solver Tools
We have other tools, particularly if you are trying to find words with these letters in them. This word scramble solver shows you the word jumble solution, where you unscramble letters to make words. If you are trying to pattern match, we have other tools (beyond the jumble solver). Use it to up your scrabble game. If you are trying to guess a missing letter, check out our hangman solver. The hangman solver also works fairly well as a crossword solver if you know some of the letters (pattern matching). We also have another word solver for wheel of fortune that can handle multiple words. If you are trying to match a pattern of unknown letters (eg. an 5 letter word, first and last letter the same), check out our cryptogram helper.
Word Solver Games & Puzzles
If you like solving word scramble puzzles, check out our new word scramble game. We did give a little additional help by color-coding the correct letters (green means you got it, red means keep trying).
We're more than just a word unscrambler site, by the way. We've also got a cryptogram solving game. These puzzles are based on substitution cipher codes, where each letter has been swapped with another letter. Your job is to figure out which letter is which and decode the message. The game keeps track of how long it takes to solve each puzzle and lets you know how your score compares with others. This article about how to solve a cryptogram may also be helpful.
The next step up from using our word puzzle solver is outright code cracking. If you like cracking codes, you may also find our article about pen and paper cryptograph interesting. We walk through some of the building blocks of manual cryptography (pre-World War I) and how these codes were broken. Those with a technical bent may find our presentation on breaking substitution ciphers via computer to be interesting as well (to a wordsolver).
