List of Q Words Without the U For Words With Friends
Words With Friends Letter Q Strategy
Words With Friends is a two-player word game like Scrabble that has been really popular on smartphones and on Facebook. It has become somewhat addicting for many and has caused many late nights. But what do you do when you get stuck with that pesky letter Q and you don't have a U to go with it? Or all the U's are already used and you can't fit your Q in and create a word?
If you pull the Q, worth ten points, early in the game, you can hold onto it for a couple of turns, but don't wait too long because it can get harder to play later on in the game. It's best to get rid of it early and not save it for a Triple Word or a Triple Letter space because you may not be able to play it. If the score is close, you do not want to be stuck with it at the end of the game. You'll lose ten points and your opponent will gain those ten points.
Here are the lists of Q words that don't require a U, along with the score without the use of any of the premium squares. The definitions are included because your friend might message you and ask, "What the heck does that mean?" Now you'll be able to answer them.
