Tips and Tricks for Word Scrambles

To have a relaxing activity, simply play it as is and have everyone unscramble the words throughout the evening. If you are looking to add some excitement and switch things up, check out our fun tips below!

Playing with Small Children

When playing with little ones, its a good idea to give them a partner. Pair the young children with an adult so they have help solving their words. The longer words will be more difficult so you can have the adults focus on solving them while the little ones look at the shorter words.

Let your kids take the lead and have the adults help when needed so that everyone can have a good time!

Add a Time Limit

To add some competition to the evening, all you have to do is add a time limit of 2-3 minutes. Then have everyone unscramble as many words as they can before time runs out. Its a great way to get everyone thinking quickly and scrambling to finish on time!

Offer a Prize

You can add even more competition by offering a prize. Whether its a fun bubbly, alcohol free drink or a delicious treat, its great motivation for everyone to play.

Add Confetti

Adding confetti is a great way to celebrate the winner. Whoever solves all the words the quickest or gets the most correct, gets to launch confetti at the end of the round. Its a fun New Year’s twist to add to your New Year’s Word Scramble.

Divide the List

Another fun way to play word scramble is to divide the list into sections. Each group of words can be their own round. Either divide everyone into groups or play solo to see who can solve their words the quickest.

It makes the game even faster and flexible as you break it up to play throughout the evening.

Play on Teams

Playing on teams is a fun way to solve each of the words, especially at a New Year’s Eve party. Playing on teams even takes out the frustration because if you don’t know a word, someone else in the group probably does!

Divide everyone into teams and have them work together. If you have small children, its a great time to place them in a group with some adults so they have someone to help them figure out the answers.
