Hard to Guess Hanging with Friends Words (4 Letters)

I analyzed all the words in the Hanging with Friends dictionary to determine which words I think are the hardest to guess. I included a rating of each word in my Hanging with Friends Word Builder. Most words are rated 0 since they can be easily guessed using my Hanging with Friends Word Solver with or without using a lifeline.

Here are the words I determined to be the hardest to guess. I’m posting them in separate posts based on word size.

In hangman, 4 letter words are usually harder to guess than longer words. But since Zynga gives you the last vowel for free AND 8 strikes to guess the remaining 3 letters, they actually often become quite easy to guess. And of course you can always use 9 strikes with the Revive lifeline or narrow it more with the 4 Suspects lifeline.

So here are my top 12 Four Letter Hanging with Friends words.

** The Score column lists my own rating (out of 100) at how hard this word is to guess. I can’t tell you how I determined what that number is–it’s my own secret recipe but it involves some math! This isn’t the points you’d earn.
