Scrabble Score Calculator

Welcome to Anagrammer's Scrabble Score Calculator! As competitive Scrabble players know, Scrabble is almost as much a mathematics game as it is a word game. It is never safe to assume that the longer the word, the higher the score. This is not always the case since it depends on the Scrabble letter values as well as the placement of letters and words on premium squares on the board.

The premium squares on the board include the double and triple letter score squares and the double and triple word score squares. Therefore, it is important to be aware as to how Scrabble scoring is tabulated. Although the frequency of each letter of the alphabet varies in different languages of the Scrabble game, a single rule remains constant: the rarer letters are worth more points. The English-language version of Scrabble contains 100 letter tiles as shown in the following distribution:

When a player creates a word during his or her turn, the sum of each new word is scored separately. Thus, if a main word is placed on the board and additional words are subsequently made, known as "hook" words, the scores for each word are counted. When a word is placed over premium squares, the value is adjusted accordingly to reflect the additional points. For example, when a letter of the word is placed on a double letter score square, the point value of that letter tile is doubled. If a letter of the word is placed on a triple letter score square, the point value of that particular letter tile is tripled. When a word is placed over the double word or triple word score squares, then the word is either doubled or tripled in point value respectively. Remember that the center square always doubles the score of the first word played, which is reserved for the player who begins first in the game.

However, it is important to note that once a premium square has been covered, point value for that premium square can no longer be added to subsequent word plays. Therefore, points for premium squares can be added only when newly placed tiles cover them. If a word is formed that covers two double word score squares simultaneously, the score is doubled and then re-doubled (four times the letter count). The same idea applies when a word covers two triple word score squares; the word value is tripled then retripled (nine times the word value). When a blank tile is played on the double or triple word score squares, the value of the word is doubled or tripled even though the blank tile has no point value. The crowning glory while playing Scrabble is when a player uses all seven tiles in a single turn, known as a “Bingo” in North America. This move garners the player 50 bonus points that are added after totaling his or her score for the turn.

At the end of the game, when all the letters to be drawn have finished, each player's score is determined by a few factors. If a player has unplayed letters, his or her score is reduced by the sum of the point value of each of his or her remaining letters. If a player does not have any remaining letters, then the total value of the other players' unplayed letters is added to that player's final score. After these factors are taken into consideration when the scores are tabulated, the player with the highest final score wins the game. If and when there is a tie, the player who has the highest score before any adjusting for unplayed tiles wins the game. During Scrabble tournament play, a tie counts as half a win for both players.
