Same answers again, again

If you have such a variety of wonderful puzzle writers, why do they have to use the same answers on every puzzle?! I realize that certain answers are easier since they contain more vowels, etc. However, there are a group of answers that are continually rotated on these puzzles. They try to fool you through different clues, but the same answer words are still used over and over again. It is so obvious that I can just enter the answer to a clue that I wouldn't otherwise know. Once you take out the core clues that are driven by theme, the remaining clues are repetition. So, after you solve several of these puzzles, it becomes mundane. These puzzles are fun since the challenging clues are solvable via working the easier clues around them. I am just stunned that, with all of the words in the dictionary, they repeat the same words. If they would work a little harder to find more variety in the "filler" clues, then these puzzles would be the perfect mix.

Glitch in game, lost coins and NO REFUND!!!

Horrible customer service! I kept losing 20 coins each time I played a game. I contacted "Help" and told them about the problem. They said to that I probably have "See Wrong" on, which I didn't. I told them it wasn't on in my initial contact and the reply I received said I probably have it set on. ???? I responded again and said I didn't have it set on. Yet again I receive another response that said I probably have this setting on and walks me thru steps to turn it off!!! Finally I took a screenshot to show them that I don't have it turned on and then received a response that they're looking into it.

I asked about my lost coins and was given a scripted response by Mhellisa S. that read in part that "its players like you that push us to develop new game content" and thanks for playing. I asked again about my lost coins and was told they appreciate my enthusiasm and that the game is constantly evolving. I don't have time to deal with developers that toy around with customers like this. How elementary and unprofessional!!!!

Pretty good🙂

The game itself is really good, but every so often a clue is reused. This takes away from the fun guessing part, but it is understandable. If you need a filler, you need a filler! However, this isn't the only downside. There is one more flaw, and it is that you have to have coins to play the crossword puzzles from the days you missed. I think since that day is over, it should be free, but that's just my opinion. Any ways, what I'm trying to get across here is that the coins are hard to earn if you don't buy them with real money and that's a bad thing because you have to have them if you want to play more than one per day or use a power up.
The game is good and the crosswords are fun, but the coin thing is a little disappointing. Don't let that keep you from downloading though!!!!! As long as you play everyday, you should have no problems! 🙂🙂🙂
