    We try to make a reasonable balance. Most of the core features of the game are free to play. It allows free multiplayer games and you earn coins while playing or can do some of the free coins options such as Tapjoy. For less than the price of a sandwich or fancy cup of coffee…The paid version also removes ads, provides bonus coins and does not require tickets for Chumbot games. For people who want to utilize all of the features and customizations in can take extra coins. Creating and running quality games such as Word Chums takes many hundreds of thousands of dollars so at some point we hope it is interesting enough for people to spend money on or do offers. Thanks for playing!

    I assume that the prompt that you are referring to was a small icon
    in the corner of the screen. The icon is part of our pop in menu.
    This small icon shouldn’t disrupt play or need to be closed. Pro
    players shouldn’t get any ads or videos that covers the complete
    screen and has to be tapped to continue. The small icon was
    probably a free chance to try our new game Adventure
    Smash. If you touch the menu icon and cancel it, then it should go away for some time until the next news reminder or gift. 
    Players may also occasionally see news items that give them a free
    holiday gift or tell them that the monthly gift has changed. Thanks
    for your feedback an support. We hope that you will give our new
    game a try. 
    Thanks for playing. We appreciate it. 

  6. Time limit or forfeit

    Players should have a time limit or forfeit! Players who are losing just
    Sit there and don move! They should be disqualified after 5 days!

    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…

  8. Waiting too long for opponents to take their tuen

    There should be a time limit for those that don't play when it comes their turn. I've waited 6,7 DAYS for them. If player doesn't make a play let's say within 4 days, automatically forfeit their game. We would get a win while they get a loss. Fair? Sounds good.
    Thanks

  9. Unrecognised words

    Why is the word JUPITER not recognised ? And there are so many other English words, spelt correctly, not recognised ...... Drives me crazy!!!!!!

    Jupiter is a proper noun. Names of people, places, days of week, and pretty much any word that is always capitalized are not valid in most word games. There are words with a usage that is not capitalized and then they can be valid. For example…Joe is a name but one can also be an “ordinary joe”.

    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…

  10. Notifications

    I recently started playing Word Chums with my cousin and my partner and have been quite enjoying it. Only thing I really see that needs improvement is the notifications. I have an iPhone 5 and have turned notifications on but I never seem to actually receive any. And the notifications on Facebook are showing up hours past when activity has occurred. Thought I should mention it since you're still in beta.

    Keep up the good work!

  13. Genius level

    Has anyone won any of the games at the genius level? You really need to look at this. I've completed the NYT Crossword puzzles numerous times, so I'm not a novice and I'm all about sportsmanship, but really? It is seemingly impossible to win a game. Please level the playing field.m

    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.

  18. 5 days without a move- reassign the game

    I have 8 games with people who haven't responded or made a move in more than 5 days, oldest game is 11 days. Why do I have to take it as a loss? Why can't the system just automatically reassign the game or the non-responsive player automatically lose??!? I live this game but have started to play others because of this.

  20. Reject Rematch option.

    When a player hits rematch, there should be an option to reject the rematch without havering to resign and forfeit the game, negatively affecting your stats.
