Soupwords

Soupwords is one of Poptropica’s multiplayer games. It’s a fun and educational word game that is much like the game Boggle. This is what the “Soupwords” game card looks like:

Starting the Game

To start a game of Soupwords, first head over to the nearest multiplayer room. Click on the person you wish to battle. Choose the option “Battle”, and a list of games will show up. Click on “Soupwords”, which is the first game listed. The other player will be given the choices “Sure!” or “No, thank you!”. If they choose “Sure!”, the game will begin, but if they say “No, thank you!” or don’t answer you, you’ll need to find someone else to play with you.

How to Play

Spell words by connecting two or more letters. Find as many words as you can before the soup gets cold!

Gameplay

A bowl of alphabet soup will be in the center and letters will be layed out 4 x 4 grid, which means there are 16 letters. Players must spell words with the soup by connecting 2 or more letters together. There is a time limit of about one minute. During the game, players must try to spell out as many words as they can – and the more letters, the more points!

Point System

Points are awarded at the end of the game, and you get points only for words that actually exist. In the example shown below, “LAE” is not a word, and does not get any points. In the same example, “LEG” is a word, and therefore receives 6 points because it has 3 letters.

As you can see, the amount of letters means double for the amount of points. Dizzy Panda’s “WOOLIE” received 12 points because that word has 6 letters in it (6 x 2 = 12). Scary Tomato’s “ALES” gets 8 points because that word has 4 letters (4 x 2 = 8).

Player Tips

  • By Shaggy Tornado: Try to submit words you know exist, try to make them long, and hope you get lots of points.
  • By Shiny Leaf: Sometimes, when you can’t find any words, try to think of words that you think are words. For example, once I typed in quip, and I didn’t know that it was a word, but it still counted it!
  • By Neat Ring: Try and add an S to a word if you can. It gives you more points.
  • By Isabella: Add an ending to each word, such as “ed” or any suffix.
  • By Neat Whale: Think of words you know exist that are uncommon or long. The longer or weirder the word, the better!!
  • By Penguin GirlTry as many different ways to spell the word as possible. For example, “r a t s” could be “rat”, “rats” , “star” “tar” or “at”.
  • By Calm Spinner: Don’t ignore little words just because they are little. Try and find as many words as you can, but remember to take all of the words you see.
  • By Smart GamerIf you don’t know or can’t find long words, enter as many easy words you know.
  • By Neat Whale: Sadly, most of the time, when I’m far in the lead (which I usually am!), people will just drop out. So make sure to wait for them to post just to be safe.
  • By Sparkle Star/Green Seal: If you find common parts and endings of words such as -ide, look for a letter or two to finish the word. For example: you could make plenty of words if you found t, r, h, w, etc. connected to -ide.
  • By Cuddly Scorpion: Practice this game by playing actual Boggle. The games are incredibly similar. Also, look through the Scrabble dictionary – there are tons of miniature words in it, that can potentially determine the course of a game (for instance, “aa”, a type of lava).
  • By Zany Dragon: Keep an eye out for any words, and I mean ANY words. You can add an s, a suffix, a prefix, etc. to a word to get more points. Make sure you keep an eye on your opponent’s score, too. If it looks like they have a long word that you don’t have, look for it!
  • By Icy Lightning: Try switching your words around! Example: You see a word like pan and you switch it around and you get: nap! And that earns you about 12 points already!
  • By Nice Bean: There’s no limit on your words, so go all out. Go for anything you vaguely think is a word. I just wasted so much time trying to spell “heinie” that I lost those points.

    I love this game!

  2. LOL! Do I see “WII” in your column, Scary Tomato? xD

    How could they think of “WII” as not a word? >=( Do they dare disrespect the ultimate awesomeness that is the Nintendo Wii?

    Scary Tomato: LOL, I wish it did count!

  3. Neat Whale says:

    Haha. one of my favirote parts of this game is that you can make up your own words, enter them, and LOL when you see they are wrong. In a last minute panic, i wrote DOWNE and YO. :lol: :lol: !!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. Heres a tip:
    Try to submit words u know exist, try to make them long, and hope u get lots of points

    Thats what i do when i play it.

    Scary Tomato: Thanks for the tip, I’ve added it! ;)

    • Once upon a time, “gob” was a word short for gobble! My GURRUFFY told me so “back in the hardy days” before the “olden days”

  5. Neat Whale says:

    I just won at this game, 32 to 0!! :D :D

  6. Here’s another tip: Sometimes, when you can’t find any words, try to think of words that you think are words. For example, once I typed in quip, and I didn’t know that it was a word, but it still counted it!

  7. tip:

    try and add an S to a word if you can. it gives you more points.

  8. Add an ending to each word, such as ed or any sufix.

  9. Thx neat ring, that really helped me when I played with my friend!

  10. Neat Whale says:

    I just won this game, 48 to 0!! :D

  11. Neat Whale says:

    TIP!
    Think of words u know egsit that r uncomen or long. The longer or weirder the word, the beter!!

    • Weird words don’t mean more points. You do not get bonuses for using rarer letters: for scoring,the forumla W=L2 is always true, where W = score value of word, and L = the number of letters in the word. The longer the word, the better, but it doesn’t matter what the letters are, provided it’s a real word.

  12. Penguin Girl says:

    Try as many different ways to spell the word as possible. For example, “r a t s” could be “rat”, “rats” , “star” “tar” or “at”.

  13. Thanks for sharing these tips, everyone! I’ve added some more up there! :D

  14. Neat Whale says:

    sadly, most of the time, when im far in the lead, (which i usually am! :D ) people will just drop out. so make sure to wait for them to post just to be safe.

  15. Neat Whale says:

    I found the word tech! that got me xtra points!! :D :D

  16. omg this game is awsome! because i always win it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  17. Neat Whale says:

    same here!

  18. Neat Whale says:

    heheh, when im home from school and my neighbor brings me my homework, i tell my mom im DOING my homework by playing this and suddoku!!!!

  19. Once, I put in “taser” as a word, and they didn’t count it. Unless it has a different name…….but hey, “don’t tase me bro!” :grin: Sorry I saw it on TV and it made me laugh!

    • Fearless Paw says:

      “Taser” is a weapon. No wonder they didn’t count it!

    • Golden Eagle says:

      Now I know why it didn’t take laser. Laser actually stands for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. So it’s not actually a word, just an acronym so you you don’t have to say, “It’s a Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation gun”. :)

      Thanks to Halopedia (the place where I found that).

      • Halo- means “salt”, so you found what “L.A.S.E.R.” stands for in an encylcopedia on salt?

        Now, that’s just weird.

        Hijuyo: Halo is a game. :neutral:

  20. On one of my accounts I won Soupwords like 360 times and lost 8. I was really surprised when I saw it.

  21. this is hallarious; it counts ‘kill’ and ‘yo’ as a word!!!! LOL!!!!!

  22. it counts ‘dint’ as a word!!!! I CAN’T STOP LAUGHING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    also, ‘con’.

    Scary Tomato: LOL. Anyway, ‘con’ is a word, as in “pros and cons”.

  23. ruthrose88 says:

    whnever i play i get like 20 words but when the meter runs out ,nothing happens,am i doin something wrong?

    Scary Tomato: I don’t know, but it’s probably a glitch where the screen froze. Just play again! ;)

  24. SERIOUS FOX says:

    it used to happen to me!

  25. i just won this game 52 to 12… OMC!!!!

  26. lol. the word oreo counted and i was eating oreos. by the way, heres a tip. if you don’t know or can find long words, enter as many easy words you know.

  27. Calm Spinner says:

    I just won Soupwords 72 to 32.

  28. Calm Spinner says:

    I have a tip for Soupwords:
    Don’t ignore little words just because they are little. Try and find as many words as you can, but remember to take all of the words you see.

    ST: Thanks, I’ve added your tip! :D

  29. Neat Whale says:

    Guys, this is rather random but ‘ROAN’ is a word! I got more points out of that!
    I even won that game 30 to zero!

  30. Also, if you find common parts of words such as -ide, look for a letter or two to finish the word. For example: you could make plenty of words if you found t, r, h, w, etc. connected to -ide.

  31. locustswarm says:

    Soupwords is a fast game.

    1. Look for suffixes. Add as many’s’es as you can!
    2. Cover an area first.
    3. Stop all sounds when playing.

  32. Messy Lightning says:

    You could use a dictionary if you’re fast.Then you could find more words!

  33. Tip: If there is a word you can add an “s” onto, do both the word with the “s” and without! You get more points!

  34. A couple of tips:

    ~Practice this game by playing actual Boggle. The games are incredibly similar.
    ~Also look through the Scrabble dictionary: there are tons of miniature words in it, that can potentially determine the course of a game (for instance, “aa”, a type of lava).

    Hijuyo: Clever tips! Thanks! :D

  35. A tip for this game: Keep an eye out for any words, and I mean ANY words. You can add an s, a suffix, a prefix, etc. to a word to get more points. Make sure you keep an eye on your opponent’s score, too. If it looks like they have a long word that you don’t have, look for it!

  36. Sometimes, if your out of words, make up them. Most of the time, ! get a word I never knew about! Only do this at the end though, because you can lose out on real ones, which isn’t good.

  37. Bony Foot says:

    Once I had hammer, that gave me heaps of points! :-)

  38. I love this game ! I like it because it’s super fun and I kick butt at it ! Here’s a tip : Even though word are small like an or on they can save your butt ! One time I beat a person by 2 points ! And try switching your words around ! Example : You see a word like pan and you switch it around and you get : nap ! And that earns you about 12 points already !

  39. Also try adding or subtracting new letters !

  40. Mr. Cat says:

    Its kind of like a word search… but you’re timed on this one! You should probably work this one like you do a word search… except faster!

  41. Barefoot Sun says:

    I love this game! I love how you connect the letters to make words. I would definitely recommend this game to my friends and family. It is one of the BEST POPTROPICA
    MULTIPLAYER GAMES EVER!!!!!!!!

  42. Nice Bean says:

    There’s no limit on your words, so go all out. Go for anything you vaguely think is a word. I just wasted so much time trying to spell “heinie” that I lost those points. Also, leave if you know you’ve lost. Saves points. This is my favorite head to head game

  43. soupwords is my faviorate!

  44. This is my Soupwords score.

    Wins: 25
    Losses: 8

    This is incredible.

  45. Tip: hurry! You can run out of time.

  46. As of late, literally no one has been able to beat me in this game. I remember I once won a game 82-16 or something ridiculous like that. I thank my mother for teaching me in the ways of Boggle, finding patterns, and just overall giving me quite an immense vocabulary.

  47. hatersloveme4897 says:
