        You can create an new account on any device. If you are already logged in on a device you will need to tap Settings (top right on main screen) and go down to logout. You then should select Email and then “I’m a new user”. You will then need to enter a different email than you have on your original Word Chums account. If your son does not have one you can use an alternate of your own. I see that this was posted by a gmail user. Gmail is great for automatically creating new email address that still end up in the same mailbox. You can add + sign after the first part of your email and then put anything you want after that plus sign. For example if my email is john@gmail.com I could enter john+sonsname@gmail.com on any email request. Any email sent to john+sonsname@gmail.com will still go…

          • Chumbot tickets - explanation?

            What do the chumbot tickets mean in the new update? There is no explanation and no new info in the help section. Will I not be able to play them anymore once I run out of tickets?

              Chumbot tickets are used to play the Chumbots in the free version of game. You start with quite a few to get a good sample of the single player and can buy more with coins. Chumbot play is unlimited in the paid version of app and no tickets are required.

            • Purchasing Chum items

              Maybe to be able to buy what you want for your chum without having to get to a particular level. I really want the Seahorse but I have to wait til level 30? Or something. Be nice to be able to just purchase it when I want so I can enjoy my chum.

                Sometimes the balance display update is delayed. If they have not shown up for you play a word in any game and that should force an update. Thanks for your support!

              • Shouldn't add people you randomly play with as friends automatically or should have the option to add or remove them.

                When you play with random people currently it adds them as a friend automatically. Shouldn't be the case. Should give you options to add or remove them and not automatically add them. Just like in real life you don't automatically become friends with random people..(most of the time at least) Thanks!

                  We do have a specific friend management process on our items for future development.

                  For now it does not add a random player to your friends list until you rematch with them or start a game with them via username. So if you just play the one game with them they should not be on the list. You can click on any name in your friends list and swipe up to get a remove option. To fully remove them you need to not have active games with them.

                      It works like the popular board game. When playing chumbots or other players each player has their own set of 7 letter tiles. You are never allowed to see the other players letters.

                      • "X" button to quickly delete old games

                        Please add this to quickly remove old games, having to tap through the menus to remove lots of old chumbot games is a bit of a chore. Or even a 'press and hold' for the "X"s to appear in the usual iOS style.

                        • You should get at least 1 vowel after playing a word

                          I feel the game constantly avoids giving vowels just so you spend money on more bombs via IAP. All other word games are balanced but this is so blatant in trying to rip you off, the game just isn't fun.

                            The draw is completely random (except for the first turn where we make sure players get a draw with a couple of vowels) The letter counts are available on the feedback knowledgebase.

                          • How about using other dictionaries which would cover more words.

                            Some words are not valid, although others from those countries are allowed.

                              We have not had many words reported that are not in the list. We do get plenty of complaints about the words that are in the list.

                              We try to closely match the Merriam-Webster’s Scrabble dictionary (link to it is below).

                              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 definitions. We look definitions up via a service called Wordnik.com which does not have definitions for all the words on the Enable2k list. In an…

                                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.

                                  • Would not let me have mega. It is a word.

                                    Was trying to make a word with the a at the end of "meg" and dint light up green but when I added o in front for omega it lit up. Mega is a word in all my dictionary apps.

                                        Going out first is one of the key strategies to winning a close game. We use pretty much the same end game rules as the popular board game. There more details on this on the Help in game. Be sure to check out the Strategy tab. I put the summary below. Thanks!

                                        The game ends when one player plays all their letters and there are no letters left to draw or when players pass for 3 consecutive turns. The player who plays all of their letters receives all the points left in their opponent’s letters and those same points are subtracted from the opponents score. This effectively gives the player making the last play double the points left in their opponent’s hand.

                                        If the score is tied after the letter adjustment then the player who made the final word and used all their tiles gets one tie-breaker bonus point.

                                          Every player draws their own 7 letters from the initial pile and redraws to 7 every play until someone plays and cannot draw more. Like in Scrabble you are not supposed to see your opponents letters.
