        We are aware that some players are experiencing problems. We made some adjustments and you should be able to fix it now. Now that it has been addressed, you should try completely deleting the game and reinstalling. See if that helps. Just make sure that you sign back in with your original email address to restore all of the games.

        As long as you are on the same device, you can easily log in to your old account with all of your games and coins. After starting WC, tap LOG IN, then USERNAME, then enter your existing user name.
        If, on the other hand, you are on a different device (or reset that device), you’ll need to log in using FACEBOOK or EMAIL.
        Again, sorry for the trouble.

                      The hints are actually pretty easy to beat depending on when you ask for it. The hint is always at least a green point word (The point badge turns green when your word is at least half the max points). However if you have found some words first then the hint word will be for bigger points. The simple thought is the hint points will usually be at least 30-50% better than what you’ve already found. If you have found a word that is 75% of the best word then the hint will be for the best word on the board.This may be more detail than most want but here is an example of the actual calculation:The minimum points for the hint word will be halfway between the best word you have placed on the board in your turn and the best word.Let’s say the best word on the board…

                    • Word Chums gifts

                      It would be wonderful to be able to buy items with the option to gift them to a friend.

                      • Count an auto resign as a win for the person who didn't cause the resignation of the game. They should get the win. They wanted to play.

                        The person who wants to play who doesn't go 6-7 days without playing should get the game counted as a win when it is auto resigned from the other players lack of playing. I deserved the win. I had the most points when the game was resigned due to the other players absence from the game. instead it wasn't counted as anything. That is so wrong. First time I played and this is what happened. Not a real good first impression.

                            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 PlayersWord 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 turnSending “Play now!” and “Play Faster!” chat messages to someone you don’t know, even with the…

                              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!If you would like to upgrade to the paid version you can tap settings (top right on main word chums page) and select upgrade.

                            • Chumbots

                              It would be great if we could play an unlimited amount of games against a Chumbot because other people aren't always playing at the same time as I am and I would like to at least be able to play against the computer...

                                  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.

                                  • add a cancel game button.. sometimes I want to keep playing, but I can't, cos I have 40 active games, but 20 of them are 2 to 7 days out

                                    I d like to keep playing, but I have reached the maximum amount of games... Half of them are 2 to 7 days out... those games should be cancelled. Or at least allow us to cancel certain ones.. Put a timer section on our games. an option of 5 mins per move, or 10, or 1 day, and so on....

                                      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.Thanks for playing and spreading the word!

                                          When players don't respond to the games the score is never added in the last players favour even after waiting several weeks. Couldn't you somehow inform the player who's waiting that so and so hasn't responded and that the win has gone to them.
