There are three good reasons that Que is not a legal word in Scrabble.

Here are those three reasons:

  • Que is not in the Official Scrabble Players Dictionary.
  • Que is not a recognized English word in two major English dictionaries.
  • Most people confuse Que with the word Queue or Cue.

Despite Que sounding like a word that should be in Scrabble, you can’t use Que in gameplay. The very similar-sounding “queue” is an official Scrabble word that means to stand in a line.

Que Scrabble Word Scoring

Since Que is not an official Scrabble word, it is not worth any points in the game.

However, if Que were allowed, it would be worth 12 points. That’s pretty dang good for a three-letter word.

Here is the theoretical breakdown of the scoring:

  • Q = 10
  • U = 1
  • E = 1

Therefore, the “Q” is the powerhouse of points in the word Que.

You can get and increase the points you earn with Que by:

  • Placing the letters “Que” on a double square
  • Placing the letters “Que” on a triple square
  • Adding “Que” to the beginning, middle, or end of other words
  • Using all 7 letters in your rack to get a Scrabble “Bingo”

If you manage to play all the letters in your rank during your round, you get a Scrabble Bingo worth 50 extra points in the game.

With Que, that means you automatically earn 62 points plus whatever you earned from using the other letters and bonus squares.
