What Happened to Lightning Round on Words With Friends?

September 9, 2023

If you haven’t yet, go try out Lightning Round on Words with Friends.

Lightning Round is a timed round in which you work with teammates to score 750 points before the opposing team. Unlike normal gameplay where you play defensively by blocking your opponents from hitting bonus tiles and high scoring words, in Lightning rounds you have to actively work to open up the board for your teammates.

This means playing fast and not spending too long on one board. Also be sure to hit those all important bonus tile combos on the edges of the board – these are much easier to get in Lightning rounds than during regular gameplay. Also, if you don’t have any words to play – swap or skip your turn.
