      It depends on which platform you are playing on (iOS, Android or Kindle). We don’t ever have that info but you change it on the store account. If you need some direction shoot us an email at support@peoplefun.com and we can let you know how to make that update.

    • Nudge

      You could try putting a nudge button,so we can keep other players in the game,and not having to wait around for them.

        Word Chums doesn’t have a nudge button. The game automatically notifies a player when it is their turn. It will also send them a reminder when they are going to lose because of inactivity.

          You can unblock the same way that you blocked. Directions are below.
          You may Block a player from starting future games with you or chatting to you. Tap their chum in the game screen and swipe up on the Stats screen to see the “Block” button. You can also block them by tapping their name in your leader board on the main screen. Swipe up on the stats screen to see the block button.

          A blocked player will not receive a notice and you will not receive any chats from them and they will not be able to start a game with you via username.

            THANK YOU for playing Word Chums! We truly hope you’re having a great social experience with you family, and friends, old and new. Many questions have come up about the speed of play.

            Waiting on Other Players

            Word Chums is a turn-based “play when you can” game – there’s no time limit for someone to make their next play*.
            And the playing style between people varies greatly — for example, it’s not uncommon for some folks to only have time to play on weekends. Ultimately, it’s always the prerogative of each player to take however much time they need.
            There’s no right or wrong way to play. If you find someone has a slower playing style than you, it’s best to start new games with other players.
            You can Chat with players and ask them how often they play a turn
            Sending “Play now!” and “Play Faster!” chat messages to…

            • Turning off noise notifications

              How do you turn off noise notifications? There is no place on the game.

                If you answered “yes” to notifications at some point you will need to go to your Settings app on your device…Then Notifications..then look for Word Chums and you can configure which type of notifications you would like.  

              • Settings Button

                It would be GREAT if you put in a "Settings" button so a person could shut off that totally annoying bird chirping sound.

                      Players who make rude comments to other players should be banned. This is not a place for social media, anonymous statements that call opponents losers and horrible players.

                                I think a game shouldn't be started with a player without their ability to approve or disapprove the request...it is very frustrating when there are far too many started for me to keep up with and I am not able to cancel the game

                                  Games that are inactive should fall off in 3-5 days instead of 7-11 days . I like to play multiple games and I shouldn't have to take a loss by removing the game because the opponent won't make a move . Very frustrating !

                                        The Tapjoy offers can take time to show up. I have put their support info below. You will need to file a support ticket with them and if they don’t respond within a day or so after filing the ticket we can then escalate the issue with them. Ton contact our support use the Feedback and Support and then Contact us option in the game or email to support@peoplefun.com. We are experimenting with these Tapjoy offers but they are frustrating when they are delayed. We have also found that people seem to have the most success with the Tapjoy.com offer. It just takes an email to signup with Tapjoy.com and you can earn hundreds of coins usually for just downloading free apps from the app store and opening them at least once. If you delete them after that its fine.

                                      • Known words that aren't in dictionary

                                        I'm tired of finding that words I've used in other word games and as a professional linguist aren't allowed in this games. Common herb names used in bestselling recipe books (nigella is a herb), exclamations, anglicised words used for centuries. Further, I can't use some words but my opponents can. It's bizarre. We should be able to look up words and suggest them, with proof, mid game.

                                          We are not word researchers and try to match the Websters and Collins Scrabble Dictionaries. Both links are below if you want to check words you have seen in Word Chums.

                                          We added the definitions as a bonus feature to provide many definitions for the curious. However there are very few sources we can access easily and legally from the app. Currently our definition source is Wordnik.com but its not connected to the validation list and does not have definitions for every word in the Scrabble lists.

                                          For word validation we try to closely match the Merriam-Webster’s Scrabble and Collin’s Scrabble dictionaries (links below).

                                          The short answer is if you find a valid word played that is not valid at one of the dictionary links below we will remove the word and we will give you 3,000 coins for finding it. You just need to verify it is not in…
