Word Chums

  1. Wasted hints

    Why are hint words often words I have already found and tried in the same spot the hint indicates? Hints are supposed to be an improvement on words already found! If hints have to be bought with coins they shouldn't be wasted like this.

  3. Throwback Thursday Gear

    I think it would be cool if on Thursday we could buy a different item from past seasonal gear. There are some items I wish I had but didn't have enough coins to buy it in the month it was available. :)

  4. Friend Achievement

    30 Coins for reaching 50 Friends?! Should be 500 coins or at least 150! By making and inviting friends we are actually promoting use of the app! Reward should measure up to that. 500 coins for 50 friends - Or at least 150. 30 is just an odd number and hardly a 'reward' for this achievement!

    We will review that and may up it a little. Our big coin reward is currently for the inviting. If you use the invite system and a player joins the game from that invite then you are award 250 coins for EACH player. In order for us to track this you have to send a system invite and they must click on the link in that invite before installing. Friends can add up pretty quick because any rematch with a Random player also adds them to your friends list. Thanks for your support!

  6. Best game awards

    Games against the computer especially Flappy should not count for Best game awards. It feels like such a gyp when a player you know is very skilled wins best game for beating flappy - come on that was no challenge for them. It's ridiculous.

  7. Improved Ads

    Love the game. Gave up words with friends, and convinced friends and family to do the same.

    While I understand the need for ads, there should be a mandatory three second view, followed by a CLEAR escape option. These often are difficult to get rid of and it's frustrating. Thanks for a fun game!

    We are continually working to try things that help us earn income and are not a problem for the player. We will iterate over time on this with the ad providers.
    We also find that some people do not realize we have an upgrade that stops all ads, adds 1,000 coins and allows free play with the Chumbots. It can be found by tapping settings on top right of Word Chums main screen. Thanks!

  8. Tell us the best word after we have played

    My friends and I would love to be able to see what the best word was after we have played. We always wonder, especially when we play a 2-star word

    It has been discussed and is on the feature request list. One hold back is that its a feature that could provide too much info and could be abused. Sometimes that word could still be available on the next turn. It would even have a greater chance of being available if someone chose to only play a tile or two in hopes of the best word being around. Those are not something that would always happen because good play spots are usually taken, etc. but its an example of the play balance that has to be considered before adding features. Thanks for your feedback!

  9. Ban Immoral usernames

    Not good for kids. Bad points to 'people fun'.

  10. Volume and sound

    Volume should be louder and should be able to get a choice of different sounds.

    We are still looking for a way to recreate this issue for testing. If there seem to be any common elements when this happens please send in a support ticket.

    We have seen that when you beat the hint, best word, etc. it can sometimes feel like you didn’t get the points because the score on the sign updates as you press play and not after the animations and other count-ups that occur. Does the no points thing seem to occur when these events are happening?

  12. Stop with allowing "words" that aren't words

    Since when is "hm" a word, among others? Seems like Chumbots can spell anything they come up with. Game would be better if only real words (those that can be found in any English dictionary) were allowed.

    I put our info on the word list below since we are not sure that people read the status on this. Sorry if you are receiving this again. You can remove your votes from this topic to not receive future updates.

    The short answer is we try to closely match the Websters Scrabble valid word list since its been around the longest for Word Games. I put a couple of the definitions for recent words mentioned below. The link to their dictionary is also below.

    HET
    a Hebrew letter

    SAKI [8 pts] , (SAKIS)
    a Japanese liquor

    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…

  13. A valid word but no definition???

    What crap is that if no definition then it shouldn't be in the game, just cannot say its a valid word with no definition, that ridiculous!!!!

    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 found in the Websters Official Scrabble dictionary 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 the Scrabble list before sending it in.

    This is the link for Scrabble’s official list (They have access to an official Merriam-Websters Scrabble dictionary for definitions):
    http://www.hasbro.com/scrabble/en_US/search.cfm

    We started with a standard word list for validation called ENABLE2k that is often used for word games and word game tournaments. 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 google on it if interested. However it only has words and not…

  14. Adding friends via text message

    Please make it so we can invite friends via a text message link. I have many friends that don't check Facebook often but would play on iPhone if I could send them an invite via text.
