  2. Genius level

    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

    G–4

    H–3

    I–7

    J–1

    K–1

    L-4

    M–2

    N-4

    O–7

    P–2

    Q–1

    R-6

    S–5

    T–6

    U–4

    V–2

    W–2

    X-1

    Y–3

    Z–1

    Blank-2

    A – 8
    B – 2
    C – 2
    D – 5
    E – 11
    F – 2
    G – 4
    H – 3

  4. Bring back the theme music please. Let the chums be able to make more speach and sounds.

    Please fix the music sounds to the different themes! The music was relaxing when playing. Made the game much nicer.

    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…

    It is possible to turn off the sound in settings. Tap the settings button in the top right corner on main screen and scroll down to see sound settings.  The volume can be adjusted there.If the phone/tablet is set to silent then Word Chums will not play sounds. Make sure you dont see the red dot on the switch above the volume buttons on your phone.  Many apps ignore the mute switch so you may still be hearing things in other apps with the mute switch on.Assuming neither of these turned the sound off its possible something got out of synch. The first thing to try is to make sure Word Chums is completely shut down and then restart it. To shut it down go to any home screen on your device (a screen where you see all your app icons). Double tap the home button on the front of device.…

  11. Settings Button

    It would be GREAT if you put in a "Settings" button so a person could shut off that totally annoying bird chirping sound.

  12. 5 days without a move- reassign the game

    I have 8 games with people who haven't responded or made a move in more than 5 days, oldest game is 11 days. Why do I have to take it as a loss? Why can't the system just automatically reassign the game or the non-responsive player automatically lose??!? I live this game but have started to play others because of this.

  13. Turning off noise notifications

    How do you turn off noise notifications? There is no place on the game.

  15. Reject Rematch option.

    When a player hits rematch, there should be an option to reject the rematch without havering to resign and forfeit the game, negatively affecting your stats.

  18. Nudge

    You need to have a nudge in place,so when you invite someone new to your game,we could nudge them as a way to see if they want to play or not.

    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.
