Good game

Really like this game. It's pretty challenging . I like playing random opponents . This game really challenges your brain. One bad point is I was playing 2 games before the update and after the update those 2 games were erased along with my player number. Didn't appreciate that and also a few days ago this app on my iPhone suddenly had every player contacting my phone as if I was playing all these games it was rather annoying because notifications kept popping up and the list of other players was a mile long. The only good part was I had like 300, 000,000 points. Honestly! I liked that. LOL! Otherwise it's a good game. ------- Bozlover51

It's ok

This game has the potential to be one of the best. It needs a few things. First. I think there should be an avatar choice that becomes yours for every game unless you choose to change it. Choosing one each time is annoying, and as others have stated, your use of this "choosing" method to make money is offensive and probably won't work. I'll play hanging or words with friends instead of paying for enhanced or continued play. Also, I cannot see ( on my phone) what the score is. If there is one, I'd like to know, after each turn, what both my and my opponent's scores are. Also there should be an option for single player. I'd be happy to play against the computer if I could play continually for 30 minutes on occasion. Bottom line: room for improvement.

Decent game, but...

Why all the Facebook integration?? Spoils most of the game due to lack of other options of play, at the very least it should be integrated with Twitter as well for those of us who do not have FB. Also maybe have some kind of a single player mode with a story line. Fun graphics and familiar bookworm feel is nice, but very few options and long term goals makes it fairly pointless to play for extended periods of time because there's very little to spend the hard earned coins on. And now with the new update, long time players have all been reset to zero, so well done ios7/popcap, you've made this game extra pointless. Conclusion: ok if you've got Facebook and lots of friends and spare time, but if not, look elsewhere. It's just a quick time waster.
