Great game, awful dictionary

The game itself is great. The dictionary is a bad joke. Common words are missing, but obscure foreign words abound. I'm not talking about English words of foreign origin. I'm talking about foreign words that would never be used in an English sentence. Fix this and this would be an amazing game. Just to give the most recent, egregious example, "tiros" is apparently a word, but the singular (and also utterly misspelled) "tiro" doesn't exist. Argh! It's hard to get through a single puzzle without finding a missing word or a ludicrous foreign inclusion.


I do love playing this game, but it is very frustrating with the words they sometimes come up with. It seems the creators use foreign words or very obscure derivatives of some words. Then, there are common words, which are not proper nouns, which are not accepted. Sometimes I just have to keep hitting different combinations to come up with a word. That said, again, I agree it is addictive and I enjoy it. I would just enjoy it more if the words were not so frustrating

Love the game, however, HD version needs some adjustments.

I play this game everyday. Just downloaded the HD iPad version. You can now play it horizontally, however, I would like it better if everything was a little larger. Letters are too small. Also, they could get rid of the sound on wrong answers. I am used to the sound on right answers only. It is a great game, regardless. Very addictive.
