A very quick and easy to use Scrabble solver that finds all 2 to 8 letter words from the letters entered and supports the use of blank tiles.

Scrabble Strategy
Scrabble is a popular word game and board game in which two to four players score points by forming words from individuallettered tiles on a 15-by-15 game board. The words are formed across and down in crossword fashion and must appear in a standard dictionary. Official reference works (e.g. The Official Scrabble Players Dictionary, now in its 4th edition) that provide a list of permissible words, some of which are rarely found in standard English writing, are also available.

The name Scrabble is a trademark of Hasbro, Inc. in the US and Canada and of J. W. Spear & Sons PLC elsewhere. Scrabble was a

trademark of Murfett Regency in Australia, until 1993 when it was acquired by Spear. The game is also known as Alfapet,

Funworder, Skip-A-Cross and Palabras Cruzadas.

The game is sold in 121 countries in 29 different language versions. One hundred million sets have been sold worldwide, and

sets are found in one out of every three American homes.
