Games are played on the Scrabble GO app
Download the Scrabble Go app from the App Store on your mobile device. On a laptop use the Scrabble GO Facebook app.
The tournament has started. What do I need to do?
Once a tournament starts, you will need to log on to myscrabbleapp.com to find out who you are due to play. The My Games page shows all your current matches. The person on the left-hand side starts the match. You should have a balanced number of starts and replies.
How do I start a match? (Scrabble GO version)
How do I find my Scrabble GO Id?
Click on the Scrabble GO app icon. Then click on your picture that is in the top-left corner. This brings you to your Scrabble GO profile page (it is the right page if it shows you your "Scrabble Score"). Click on the gear icon that is in the top-right corner. Doing this will take you to a screen called "Profile Settings". At the bottom you will see "ID", with numbers next to it. This set of numbers is your ID for Scrabble GO.
Update your Scrabble GO Id on your My Details page to help your opponents start games against you.
How do I start a game using my opponents Scrabble GO Id?
Click on the Scrabble Go app icon. Click on the blue button that says "Start New Game/Play With Friends". Click on the icon for "Scrabble Classic". That will take you to a screen that says "Play Classic With Friends". Directly underneath this heading is a white search bar. In the search bar, simply type in the ID and the person should appear.
How do I start a match? (EA version)
You need to be FB friends with your opponents in order to start games against them on the EA Scrabble app. As soon as the tournament starts, send friend requests to anyone not already on your friends list. Do this whether or not you are due to start as it will speed up the process.
For games to be played on the Scrabble MATTEL FB app (or the EA version for TWL US/Canadian players). Choose Create New Game and start each match you are due to start. Put a message in the chatbox to announce which tournament the match is for, eg, "FSL X Rd 113 Johnny vs Davinia". When you have made the first move, go back to myscrabbleapp, fill in the first word played and click Update. This records that the match has started. If you exchange for your first move, enter 'exch'. You do not need to update the result again until it has been completed. We are planning to transition to using Scrabble Go once the EA app is discontinued.
My opponent was due to start but has not. What should I do?
If your opponent has not started within the allotted time, you may start the game (there is no need to pass in this case). Remember to enter the first word in the app as this determines which is the league game if two have been started inadvertently.
