Author Bio

Hey, I'm Stephen, a huge fan of word games and Scrabble in particular. Having played Scrabble for over 10 years since childhood, I created Word Checker to share some of my experiences with other players.

As a software engineer, I wanted to apply my skills to make Word Checker a collection of useful online tools people can use to get help playing word games. Whether that be through word checkers, anagram solvers, or just word lists.

I love writing educational-style content about the English language and all its quirks. I hope my work brings new players into the community and fellow players can use my content to improve their playing abilities and enjoy the game more.

Favourite Word Game

Despite the focus of this website being Scrabble, my favourite word game to play at the moment is Connections. It is a daily game by the New York Times whereby you have to group 16 words into 4 groups that share a common theme.

Favourite Scrabble Word

My favourite word to play is "Zax," when I'm lucky enough to pick out both the Z and X tiles. It's a great word as it often takes people by surprise once they realise just how many points it can score (especially on multiplier squares).

It's defined as a tool for cutting roofing slates and has the same meaning as the word "Zex."

Best Scrabble Play

My best Scrabble play to date was creating the word Monazite in the bottom left corner of the board across two unused triple word squares. It was a bingo move that played off an existing "T" tile on the board, thus scoring 261 points + 50 bonus points, bringing the total turn points to 311. Safe to say that same game turned out to be my best to date all thanks to one word.
