    You don't have to be a word 'genius' to rise through the levels quickly.
    The Help section contains strategy tips, and there are websites that teach some more, on how to use word hooks more effectively to boost your scores, even for simple words with one to three letters ( like A or THE or EAR or SUN etc depending on the layout).
    Learning strategy is what takes time, for many people, as they have jobs and families etc. Opponents often live in opposite hemispheres.
    If you want to get even better scores you can learn to use the HINT facility well because it helps to see the spaces where a good word should be. (I don't use it because my brain doesn't work best that way, and I still get good scores, and win enough)

    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…

    If you turn on notifications, the game can remind you it's your turn, then after a week or a bit more, it will cancel the game.

    Oops: missed a word! That should read: people who want more playing time...
    We don't need AFK, we need COMMUNICATION!

    Vincent, you sound like someone I'd enjoy playing! :)
    People with larger vocabs can mentor people who are newer to games like this; people who don't like using the in-built boosts don't have to; people who to have more playing in their day can start more games with new friends/players or Chums. There's a lot of flexibility if you allow it, and set some shared understandings via Chat for your first games.

    Won't work. What about device latency? What about server problems? What about issues such as snowzilla or tropical cyclones that remove the ability to charge devices let alone transmit???? These are unfair issues for players to be penalised with.

    Oh, I meant to say that it's really silly that MUNG as in mung beans isn't recognised, and common international words pending from before 2009.

    Interesting also that CRAY, accepted by WESPA and the CSW from at least 2010 onwards as a legit alternative word for crayfish, esp in Australia and NZ, is not in the linked database. This is despite it being written about in the international Scrabble players blogs on new words & players' secrets.
    The same holds true for VOM, accepted in the last couple of years and widely written about in the media, QIN (a Chinese zither, accepted in 2013 as a new word because it hooks onto qi), EE which sometimes the game accepts and sometimes it won't, and many others.
    In fact many of this year's 6,500 new Scrabble words won't show up if you search the linked Scrabble dictionary. It's buggy. There's a huge problem that needs resolving.
    But it's still a fun game, and there are loads of legit words you can use to great advantage.

    Would be handy but might be open to abuse.

    Ridiculous. You can negotiate a fast game via Chat, or allow for gaps in play while people work, study, live their lives. If you're bored, start another game.

    How do we know which time zone you're in? Especially when some players want to disable Chat, and others can't use proper grammar errors and autocorrect tools?

    That doesn't help if your opponent is dealing with latency issues, is in a rural area, is experiencing server problems beyond their control...not to mention sending from country to country sometimes takes quite a few minutes.

    Thanks for the info. We will be adding it in a future update.
    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 for playing…

    Why is it that my opponents can make a word but I can't play that word later?? Examples include zatar (a spice), aa, doxy, and a few others. I also can't play the names of musical notes: sol, fah, lah, ti, doh. Nor can I play standard two- and three-letter words which are used as letter names, or the names of foods, or plants and are often found in crosswords and newspapers. And sometimes a word I've previously played is no longer accepted (such as hoon and hooned which is a verb, past participle; and moxy/moxie, an informal noun for spunk or gumption or bravado).
    I've gone to the Wordnik site and the words I want are in the discussion fora, linked back to the head words, often without a proper meaning, or found in the definition of another word.
