Tips & Tricks Longer and more complex words earn more points Get more value out of a base word by adding prefixes and suffixes. Increase your word score multiplier by building words quickly in consecutive order and using special Gold and Diamond letter tiles. If you pause or stop your multiplier will reduce. If you ‘Mark’ an invalid word, your multiplier will reset to zero. When you build valid words and increase your multiplier five times in a row, you get a Gold tile and your multiplier increases to x10. For every fifth time you earn a Gold tile, you will instead get a Diamond tile and your multiplier will increase to x20. Build a word with your Gold or Diamond tiles to earn bonus points. They can only be used once and be quick. If you are too slow to build your word, your special tile could disappear.
