For many casual Scrabble players, drawing a Q is more likely to inspire fear rather than joy. But the 10-point letter should be seen as a source of high-scoring plays. Learning the 33 words which use a Q but not a U (or use both, but not in the QU sequence) can go a long way toward improving your results.

You might also want to learn Scrabble's legal two-letter words and words with no vowels. Here are all of our Scrabble word lists, and some simple ways to improve your Scrabble play.

NOTE: These words are legal according to the Official Scrabble Players Dictionary, 4th Edition. They may not be legal if you use a different dictionary. The word list used in tournament games in the United States is known as the Official Tournament and Club Word List, created by the National Scrabble Association.
