    • 40 game limit

      Please lift the forty game limit. Many people don't play for days and the ones that do, some only play once or twice. The least thing, you can't even play a chumbolt. Please at least let us play a chumbolt if we have more than 40 games going. Thanks.

        I put details on this below.

        The max is active games for your list is 40. Removed games don’t count against the limit unless they come back when the other player plays their turn. Other players can also start games with you even when you are over the limit. However we caution people that we only have the limit at 40 because performance and stability on your device can be a problem if you have too many on the list. So if you remove games to start more games be careful about getting too many games going.

        In iOS version:
        Some people do play with 2 chum characters and have one in the Free version of the app and one in the Paid version.

        Thanks for playing and spreading the word!

      • Not getting invites

        The invite shows on sender's screen, waiting for my 1st move. I don't see the invite game, so can't play. Same thing visa versa. What's the deal? We are stuck in limbo!

        • Non participation

          When a player doesn't complete a game after say 4 days their opponent should automatically win that game and gain coins for winning.

          • Dictionary

            Something desperately needs to be done about the Dictionary used. So many English words not accepted .....SO FRUSTRATING!!!!

            • i keep trying to buy a coin package

              System keeps telling me to add a credit card but the credit card is already on amazon and has money on it but system still won't allow or complete purchase. Should be easier to spend actual money on this 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.

                    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 either of the Scrabble lists before sending it in. There are some…

                  • Forced resign

                    Some of the players that i am playing with hasn't moved for a week. Is there any way that it will forced them to RESIGN or FORFEIT the game if they dont make a move after certain days? It's clogging up the box for the active players that i am playing with. It sucks for us because some of them are intentionally doing it when they are losing.

                      • Forfeit a game if player takes too long to play

                        I have been waiting 5 days for my opponent to play. There should be some kind of time limit if they take too long or don't come back.

                          • Allow a player to decline playing without it counting as a loss.

                            I've been invited to play by unknown players and was already involved in several other games so I declined. Declining to play counted as losses. This is not quite fair. Declining to play a game unsolicited should not incur a penalty.

                              As long as you Decline before a word has been played the game does not count as a win or loss. If it says “Resign” then that will count as a loss.

                                The volume is also controlled by your device settings. Typically if you adjust the volume up/down while the screen is locked that will adjust notification and ringer volume.

                                      There is a volume setting for the background sound and the in game notification sounds in “settings”. Settings is the gear looking button in top right corner on the main screen with leader board.

                                    • Beat the hint

                                      If we pay for hints and then beat them, should we not at least get our hint back? That inly seems fair....

                                        • Time to change the Christmas theme & music! How about a New Year 2014 theme?

                                          Hi: Your music & theme needs to match the calendar. It's New Year's not Christmas!
