      Playing against a Chumbot (last option on the New Game screen) is playing against the computer and their play will always be made quickly. If its taking more than a few seconds you are probably playing a real person.

      When you play Random games or games against friends you are playing another person. People play a very different speeds. Some play a few turns every few days and some like to sit down and play hundreds of turns. Many people start random games to find people that play at their speed.

      The system will delete random games after 7 days and other games after 11.

    • Players who cheat by not playing

      If people stop playing because they are losing they should lose the game after three days of not playing. I've had several people stop playing because they are losing and then just wait until 7 days have passed and they are removed from the game. Not fair!

          If you rematch with them or start a game with them directly by tapping New Game then Friend then Name/Email they will automatically go on your friends list.

          • To stop cheating...

            To stop cheating, clear games which have been left for over, say, two days and hand a win to the player who last played. This way, time spent on games is not wasted when opponents stop playing because they're losing.

            • Inactive Players

              You should be able to get rid of a player who hasn't played a word in a couple of days without resigning and in essence losing. Maybe you can and I just don't know how?

                The system will delete random games after 7 days and other games after 11.

                When it’s not your turn and you would like to remove a game from your game list you can select “Remove Game” from the game menu. When your are viewing a game board the game menu is in the top right corner. You will no longer see the removed game on your list after selecting remove game. However if the player does make a turn before the auto resign time period is reached it will come back on your list.

                I would buy the upgrade if Word Chums had the option to pass and play.

                  You can always update to the paid version of the app. It has free chumbot play, adds 1000 coins and removes ads.
                  Just tap settings (top right on word chums main page) and Upgrade is the first option.

                  The upgrade is a 1 time purchase.

                    We didn’t find it in a couple of the dictionaries we look at or in the Scrabble word list. Don’t forget the proper nouns that are usually capitalized are not valid words.

                  • Too few games allowed

                    Why is there an achievement for having 50 friends playing when even after buying the game the maximum number of games it will let me play is only 40?!! Bit of a con surely?!!!!!

                      The Super Connector and Social Hub are not about active games (those are the Juggler achievements) but about how many friends you have on your friends list. Facebook friends or friends that are in your contacts are automatically added to the list. Thanks!

                          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…

                              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.

                                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!

                                  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.
