        It is balance we work on. For those that don’t want to buy coins the Free Coins tapjoy options such as downloading apps for coins are quite popular.

        One issue with coins for winning is the potential to motivate some players to cheat in order to more rapidly farm coins.

        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. 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 hundreds of thousands of dollars so at some point we hope it is interesting enough for people to spend money on…

        • Trading letters should not give you same letters back

          It's so stupid that I trade in 3 "E"s and get them all back.

            Draws from the tile bag are random, by design. Word Chums does, however, re-draw up to two times, if you get many of the same tiles back or if you don’t get a mix of vowels and consonants. But after two additional random draws, you get what you get.

          • Should give the option where it notify other player to give up.

            So players who don't finishes a ame after say 24 hours can delete and lose point for quitting in the middle of a game, they'll have bad status for quiting or taking to Long to response to a game

              Just as a comment on this topic…Word Chums is designed to be a “turn based” game that people can play whenever they have time. Some people only sit down and play turns every few days and some like to finish a game in one sitting. Its always good to ask your opponent how they would like to play. Telling them to hurry up usually doesn’t go well.

              • A nudge/reminder

                We should have a nudge or reminder button to use on people that haven't played in days. I hate having to remove them & claim a loss, even if I was winning.

                  I put the info on auto removal of games below. We have had an issue with the auto delete process the last couple of days and you can have some older games but they will be removed soon.

                  We have the nudge on the list for future updates. Sometimes a nicely worded chat can remind someone. “Would you like to finish our game?”

                  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…

                  Add a delete account button in the settings

                      • Let us see what the best move would have been on the board

                        That feature would make me switch to this game from scrabble!

                        It can be in-app purchase for "tickets" to be able to see this…

                              If you would like to upgrade to the paid version you can tap settings (top right on main word chums page) and select upgrade. Thanks!

                                • Landscape format please!

                                  Should rotate to landscape format when iPhone/iPad is that way! Annoying if I'm using other apps in landscape orientation and have to rotate the iPad around just to play this game!

                                      • 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…

                                        • Gifts to opponents

                                          I would like I to offer a gift to an opponent on occasion, but I don't want to give away hundreds or thousands of my hard-earned coins. Could you offer a "token" option that could be more of a "token" gift? It would be fun to see if more people took advantage of this if they could just give away 100 coins or less to surprise an opponent. Thanks for your consideration.
