QATS is valid to play in Scrabble for 13 points

About the word QATS

“Qats” is the plural form of the word “qat.” It is a shrub whose leaves are used as a mild stimulant when chewed or brewed as a tea and is common in Arabian countries.

Unfortunately, it is not possible to extend “qats” in Scrabble any further to create a longer word. No letters can be added to either the start or end to form a new word in this instance.


QUID is valid to play in Scrabble for 14 points

About the word QUID

Quid’s high score of 14 points is primarily thanks to the “Q” character that makes up 10 out of the 14 points for quid.

Quid is commonly used as a term to represent a form of currency, typically one British pound sterling. However, it also can be used as a noun, meaning a piece of chewing tobacco.

Quid is a great 4-letter word in Scrabble that is high scoring due to its use of the “Q” letter tile. It can be extended easily with an “s” to make “Quids” or with “am” to make “Quidam”. Alternatively, an “s” or an “e” can be placed in front of the word quid to make “Squid” or “Equid” respectively.

As a result of Quid’s already high score, playing it on a double or triple word multiplier square on the Scrabble board is a highly beneficial move for players.

Definitions of QUID

  • (noun) The inherent nature of something.
  • (noun) A section of the Democratic-Republican Party between 1805 and 1811 (from tertium quid).
  • (noun) A sovereign or guinea.
  • (noun) Pound sterling.
  • (noun) A piece of chewing tobacco.
  • (noun) The act of chewing such tobacco

Example Sentences

  • “In the bustling market, vendors proudly displayed their goods, each priced in British Pounds or QUID.”
  • “During the trivia night, the contestant confidently answered, That'll be five QUID, earning cheers from the audience.”
