Make timed option play.
Make available time limit increments per turn to be agreed upon by all players of that game. I would suggest 5, 10, 20 and 30 min turn options. Also a way to limit how many days a game lasts. When I try to delete a game that lasts longer than 3 days it doesn't take.
There is a time limit but it is like 11 days. If this is too long you can remove the game from your game list using the button in the top right corner of the play screen. Although I would not recommend this because it dosent harm you to keep it on the list and that player might not have time like you.

The time limit option isn't much use when the opponents live on distant continents, as long gaps are inevitable. Just talk to your opponent and agree between yourselves. However if there was a button saying "timed play?" and you both pressed "yes", then you would know that you are both amenable to the idea.

there should be an option for timed plays. it gets ridiculous waiting to finish a game sometimes.
there already is a time limit. many of you just think it's too long. but many of us cannot play daily, but still like to play. the existing time limit is fine. the game will tell you when you are running out of time which is great. and if you are tired of awaiting amother's turn, then resign the game!
To be quite honest this option should have introduced ages ago. I've noticed it's now 10 days before an inactive player gets resigned. Timed games would speed things up nicely. 2 minutes to play a word is more than ample
this feature would not b good 4 those of us who enjoy playing, but cannot just sit and play. we have more going on than just the games.
make friend play occur only when that friend is on line
speed round perhaps
That would be so fun!!

I agree with Vvutsy, anyone under Level 10 should have less time as 90% of people abandon games.
What about 1 day added to "time to play per level achieved from 5 onwards? So Levels 1-5 (which is where you pay the referral rewards in my opinion, just make them larger as its too easy to get Level 1, but playing 5 levels to benefit a mate will hook more people as the game does sell itself.
I agree there should also be a coin penalty for people resigning a game near the end to botch high scores.
Finally, just remove the games that people abandon, you won't see them again but they do accumulate to your game count so after you've done it for a while you will get little chunks of free wins everyday. I generally find starting 25 games a day there are usually 3-5 people who play beyond 5 words, and usually only1, maybe 2 of those become a regular opponent.
Anyone who wants a regular opponent I am generally available 20 hours of each day to play, just challenge me with pleasure anyone, anytime.
I think there should be a time limit, or some notification to say that they will continue within a certain. Or they lose the game.
I hate it when players leave a game hanging for days when the game is almost complete
I totally agree there should be a time limit set either per game or a rule made. I like to keep going not stopping for 30 minutes every word. Thats why I come to the game. I like to play.
You should have as long to play as you need. I pay for my coins, I have a job I can't be on every second of the day, plus the time differences with other countries. If a game takes too long just delete it and move on no need to complain, you can chat with your opponent and find out when and if they can play, I go away for weekends at a time, I'm not gonna worry about playing the game. I love this game, its the best one out there for this kind of play.
Some here are asking for a game to end after a few days. It already does this.....and I HATE it!! I shouldn't lose a game because I don't spend all my time playing games!! Should have at least 30 days. If no play after 5, send a notification reminder.
New to this game but will probably stop playing. Too many opponents stop playing for days.

If a person does not play a turn within a week they should forfeit the game and any points they gained from that game should be awarded to their opponent.
Agree with a time limit to make a play.
I typically play once a day (more on wks) ; i would not like a short time limit :( but Think a response between 48 or 72hrs would be fair; absolutetly love the game! Thank you

a time limit would make the game more fair. we've all had great games go to limbo and finally canceled out of frustration. 24 to 48 hours limit. thank you.
