        We are aware that some players are experiencing problems. We made some adjustments and you should be able to fix it now. Now that it has been addressed, you should try completely deleting the game and reinstalling. See if that helps. Just make sure that you sign back in with your original email address to restore all of the games.

        As long as you are on the same device, you can easily log in to your old account with all of your games and coins. After starting WC, tap LOG IN, then USERNAME, then enter your existing user name.
        If, on the other hand, you are on a different device (or reset that device), you’ll need to log in using FACEBOOK or EMAIL.
        Again, sorry for the trouble.

        • Friends?

          Adding random players you've been playing to your friends list?? Would be nice since this is one of the only versions of "social media" I go on.

                You can change the theme at any time by going to the Shop and then the themes tab. You can always go back to the Sunny tab which is always included. Thanks for playing!

                    This is a terrible app. Allows words that are not even words. Needs a complete rewrite.

                        Tap the settings button on the top right of main screen and scroll down and you will see an Auto-zoom board setting. You can also zoom/unzoom anytime by tapping the board twice quickly.

                            Word Chums doesn’t have a nudge button. The game automatically notifies a player when it is their turn. It will also send them a reminder when they are going to lose because of inactivity.

                            Thanks

                            I have several games from 5 + days ago when the players stopped playing didn't resign just stopped playing. its highly annoying. if I were to resign those games I would lose my points. makes me want to delete the game. every game like this times people out you guys should do the same

                                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!

                                  I assume that the prompt that you are referring to was a small icon
                                  in the corner of the screen. The icon is part of our pop in menu.
                                  This small icon shouldn’t disrupt play or need to be closed. Pro
                                  players shouldn’t get any ads or videos that covers the complete
                                  screen and has to be tapped to continue. The small icon was
                                  probably a free chance to try our new game Adventure
                                  Smash. If you touch the menu icon and cancel it, then it should go away for some time until the next news reminder or gift. 
                                  Players may also occasionally see news items that give them a free
                                  holiday gift or tell them that the monthly gift has changed. Thanks
                                  for your feedback an support. We hope that you will give our new
                                  game a try. 
                                  Thanks for playing. We appreciate it.

                                      Jupiter is a proper noun. Names of people, places, days of week, and pretty much any word that is always capitalized are not valid in most word games. There are words with a usage that is not capitalized and then they can be valid. For example…Joe is a name but one can also be an “ordinary joe”.

                                      We are not word researchers and try to match the Websters and Collins Scrabble Dictionaries. Both links are below if you want to check words you have seen in Word Chums.

                                      We added the definitions as a bonus feature to provide many definitions for the curious. However there are very few sources we can access easily and legally from the app. Currently our definition source is Wordnik.com but its not connected to the validation list and does not have definitions for every word in the Scrabble lists.

                                      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!

                                        If you answered “No” to notifications at some point you will need to go to your Settings app on your device…Then Notifications..then look for Word Chums and you can configure which type of notifications you would like.

                                          Word Chums doesn’t have a nudge button. The game automatically notifies a player when it is their turn. It will also send them a reminder when they are going to lose because of inactivity.

                                          Thanks

                                          Has anyone won any of the games at the genius level? You really need to look at this. I've completed the NYT Crossword puzzles numerous times, so I'm not a novice and I'm all about sportsmanship, but really? It is seemingly impossible to win a game. Please level the playing field.m

                                            Thanks for the feedback. Some players find the chumbots very challenging. All letters are drawn at random for all players, this includes chumbots. They get no advantage and follow the same rules. A few people have asked for how many of each letter are in a game. The detailed list is below:
                                            A–8

                                            B–2

                                            C–2

                                            D–5

                                            E–11

                                            F-2

                                            I–7

                                            J–1
