      • Opponents

        If an opponent has not played in 3 days they should be kicked from the game.

          We do clean out old games after an extended period of time — 7 or 11 days depending on if it is a random game.  Games will be auto resigned by the system and whoevers turn it was receives a loss.

        • Chat conversations

          I would like chat conversations to continue the conversation thread , to carry over between the same players in all of they're games played.

            • Reset Stats Option

              Option to reset stats, I feel that this would be very helpful for people who are unhappy with their average word or win/loss ratio.

                      The hints are actually pretty easy to beat depending on when you ask for it. The hint is always at least a green point word (The point badge turns green when your word is at least half the max points). However if you have found some words first then the hint word will be for bigger points. The simple thought is the hint points will usually be at least 30-50% better than what you’ve already found. If you have found a word that is 75% of the best word then the hint will be for the best word on the board.This may be more detail than most want but here is an example of the actual calculation:The minimum points for the hint word will be halfway between the best word you have placed on the board in your turn and the best word.Let’s say the best word on the board…

                                  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

                                  After playing, let the player see how many points short of the Best Word they were. That won't give away a clue for the next turn but would add another edge to the frustration - and encourage the use of hints, perhaps!

                                      Hors isn’t an accepted word in most word games and isn’t in the
                                      Official Scrabble Dictionary. 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 definitions. We
                                      look definitions up via a service called Wordnik.com which does not
                                      have nearly as many definitions. In an upcoming update we are going
                                      to research many of the most unusual words and create a list of
                                      their definitions we can use in game.  Scrabble’s list is
                                      copyrighted so we cannot copy it. The link for their list is below
                                      in case you are curious. 
                                      If you would like to suggest words to add or delete just send us
                                      a support request.
                                      Thanks…

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