  1. Automatically losing for passing?

    I was winning by 23 points, i had to pass b/c my last letter didnt fit. My opponent played a 6 pnt word, and somehow got enough pnts to win. What is the point of keeping score if ultimately it doesnt matter? Passing shouldnt make you automatically lose.

    Being the first player to play all letters first is often key to winning a close game. We use pretty much the same end game rules as the popular board game. I put the summary below but it’s also detailed on the help screen in the game. The Strategy tab also has lots of good tips.

    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…

    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.

  3. Invite random people as friends on word chums

    Let random people that r playing be able to be on ur friends so you can play them again if you want.

  5. 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.

    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…

  11. 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?

  12. 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.

  16. "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.

  17. 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.

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

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

    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…
