    The word list has over 175,000 words and should have all common words. Sometimes this occurs when other words are being formed at the same time or tiles are being played along more than one row or column. Every place there are two or more tiles touching must form a valid word. There could also be a stray tile on the board somewhere which will not let it validate any words. You can send a screen shot if you still have the turn.

    Words that are usually capitalized..names of places, people, etc. are not valid words. So things like the days of the week, month names, countries etc. are not on the list. Thanks!

    We do add words to the word list when people report missing words that are in one of the major scrabble dictionaries.
    This link has more info on that: https://wordchums.uservoice.com/knowledgebase/articles/221163-word-list-bounty

    It is balance we work on. For those that don’t want to buy coins the Free Coins tapjoy options such as downloading apps for coins are quite popular.

    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. 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 hundreds of thousands of dollars so at some point we hope it is interesting enough for people to spend money on or do free coins offers. Thanks for playing!

    If you would like to upgrade to the paid version you can tap settings…

    It has been discussed and is on the feature request list. One hold back is that its a feature that could provide too much info and could be abused. Sometimes that word could still be available on the next turn. It would even have a greater chance of being available if someone chose to only play a tile or two in hopes of the best word being around. Those are not something that would always happen because good play spots are usually taken, etc. but its an example of the play balance that has to be considered before adding features. Thanks for your feedback!

    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…

    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…
