        We try to make a reasonable balance. Most of the core features of the game are free to play. It allows free multiplayer games and you earn coins while playing or can do some of the free coins options such as Tapjoy. For less than the price of a sandwich or fancy cup of coffee…The paid version also removes ads, provides bonus coins and does not require tickets for Chumbot games. For people who want to utilize all of the features and customizations in can take extra coins. Creating and running quality games such as Word Chums takes many hundreds of thousands of dollars so at some point we hope it is interesting enough for people to spend money on or do offers. Thanks for playing!

      • Notifications

        I recently started playing Word Chums with my cousin and my partner and have been quite enjoying it. Only thing I really see that needs improvement is the notifications. I have an iPhone 5 and have turned notifications on but I never seem to actually receive any. And the notifications on Facebook are showing up hours past when activity has occurred. Thought I should mention it since you're still in beta.

        Keep up the good work!

            You can unblock the same way that you blocked. Directions are below.
            You may Block a player from starting future games with you or chatting to you. Tap their chum in the game screen and swipe up on the Stats screen to see the “Block” button. You can also block them by tapping their name in your leader board on the main screen. Swipe up on the stats screen to see the block button.

            A blocked player will not receive a notice and you will not receive any chats from them and they will not be able to start a game with you via username.

              THANK YOU for playing Word Chums! We truly hope you’re having a great social experience with you family, and friends, old and new. Many questions have come up about the speed of play.

              Waiting on Other Players

              Word Chums is a turn-based “play when you can” game – there’s no time limit for someone to make their next play*.
              And the playing style between people varies greatly — for example, it’s not uncommon for some folks to only have time to play on weekends. Ultimately, it’s always the prerogative of each player to take however much time they need.
              There’s no right or wrong way to play. If you find someone has a slower playing style than you, it’s best to start new games with other players.
              You can Chat with players and ask them how often they play a turn
              Sending “Play now!” and “Play Faster!” chat messages to…

                • Forfeit a game if player takes too long to play

                  I have been waiting 5 days for my opponent to play. There should be some kind of time limit if they take too long or don't come back.

                    • 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.

                      • 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!

                              Playing all of your letters first is one of the key strategies to winning a close game. The end game rules are similar to those in the popular board game. There are more details on this topic 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.

                              It would not work well if you played all your tiles and had no tiles to draw and then the other player got to…

                                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.    

                                You may also Block a player from starting future games with you or chatting to you.  Tap their chum in the game screen and swipe up on the Stats screen to see the “Block” button.  You can also block them by tapping their name in your leader board on the main screen.  Swipe…

                                • Games should end after idling for so long and winner should receive credit

                                  Frustrating when someone is behind on points and just doesn't play. Seems like after so long that should be considered a win. Some people don't resign and if you end game you don't get the credit for winning!

                                      We do add words to the list over time so keep suggestions coming. A couple of notes though: Words that are only used as proper nouns are not valid. June is an example. So names of places, people, days of week or month, etc. Some proper nouns have a non-proper usage such as joe. “He’s and ordinary joe”.

                                      Also its often the placement of the letters forming other words. Ugly is certainly a valid word but there was likely another word being formed at same time by adjacent tiles. You can tap the play button (even though it looks inactive) at any time and it will tell you what word is not valid.

                                      Thanks for playing!

                                    • I'd like be to able to turn off the game sounds without silencing the phone.

                                      I don't like the chirping and music and would like to be able to turn of the game sounds. I don't mind notification noises.

                                        There is a volume setting for the background sound and the in game notification sounds in “settings”. Settings is the gear looking button in top right corner on the main screen with leader board.

                                      • If a player does not take their turn

                                        If a player doesn't take their turn within a certain amount of days , they should automatically lose and it should count as a win for the other player. I notice some just don't play anymore when they are losing and the game is deleted without penalty for them. Not right

                                          When you put up a word connecting two words. Show which words aren’t acceptable rather than just not turning green.
