  1. Coins for reaching levels

    I have reached level 74, and to reach level 75, I will need to obtain a further 500,000 xp points. For this I will be awarded a measly 450 coins. The coins awarded should be increased in line with the effort required to reach further levels.

    • Part exchange old purchased hats and holds for new ones..

      When you buy hats and holds, then after a while you don't want them, you should be able to trade them in for part exchange when buying new ones.

        • Accepted Words

          The words used when playing against the computer should be accepted words in the country or language you are playing in. I'm pretty sure ne and ag aren't words in proper English yet the computer scored points for those. As a matter of fact the computer didn't make one proper word before I stopped the game!

            We do try to closely follow the Scrabble Tournament word list. For example it shows.

            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 dictionary (link to it is below).

            The short answer is if you see a valid word played that is not on the official Scrabble tournament word list we will remove the word and we will give you 2,000 coins for finding it. You just need to verify it is not in the Scrabble list before sending it in. There are some modern word exclusions we have added (ex. WIKI) that are…

                There is a chat button on the game screen between the chums when you are playing another player. Its not there when playing chumbots. Just tap it to send a chat and see chats.

                      Check your junk mail for a previous response to this.

                      If you put just the correct email on the account and remove anything else we could delete all advices associated with the account. You would then logout and login and it would just send the verify email to the email you have listed on the account. You can let us know the only email that should be on it and we could also verify that.

                      If you do every get a verify device email from us…you should only get that right after trying a login on a new device. If someone else is trying your email and you click on the link you will let them in to your account.

                    • Nudging

                      I have an idea!! my idea is that u should make an update where you could nudge another player. for instance if they haven't played you in a while you could send a little notification saying so and so

                            It was great--I had the word "CHUMBOT" on a triple word and 4 letter first word. The game would not accept it!!

                              We use a standard word list for validation called ENABLE2k. People and Chumbots use the exact same list..except some of the easier Chumbots can’t use parts of the list. It’s used by quite a few games and you can search on it if interested. However it only has words and not definitions. We look definitions up via a service called Wordnik.com which does not have nearly as many definitions. In an upcoming update we are going to research many of the most unusual words and create a list of their definitions we can use in game. Scrabble’s list is copyrighted so we cannot copy it. The link for their list is below in case you are curious.

                              If you would like to suggest words to add or delete just send us a support request.

                              Thanks for playing and spreading the word!

                            • Dictionary

                              It is a shame that idiotic abbreviations are allowed in your dictionary, ie VEEP for Vice President and DEV for development for instance. It goes against all the scrabble rules of old and it really dumbs down the game. Why not use a "proper" dictionary as a guide, such as the oxford dictionary? Any thoughts? Thanks for looking into this.

                                      We have not ever seen a case of it not working. It does not end games in progress. It stops chats and future games. If you have blocked a user name and they are starting new games with you then we can look in to that. Use the Feeback and Support and then Contact us option to file a ticket with details.

                                        • Winning points

                                          Can you consider that when someone simply chooses to no longer play because I'm winning, that the person with the most points wins....it's a bit unfair when I'm winning and my opponent doesn't finish the game!! I'm thinking of doing the same thing now to people I am losing to.....then my stats may not look so bad!
