My favorite game, at the moment-almost perfect…


I really enjoy this game, and the added fun of the characters, and optional gear, etc. I like the ability to see the number of stars the word I'm about to play is rated at, too. Sometimes I wish the characters did not react as intensely, because it makes me sad, to see a row of frowning, angry looking characters, when I have a winning streak.

The game does crash or freezes sometimes, but I can usually close it down to get it going again. One frustrating thing, is that some real English words are not words that are valid in the game.
I also find it frustrating that the stats are not correct. They showed that I played many more low point games then I actually have, and even though I won against a recent first time player, the stats do not reflect that. This player and I have played two games. I won the first, they won the second, but the stats show only one game, with that person as the winner. I sure would like this information to be corrected. Or fixed for the future, at least.

Favorite Game!


I have ended up with just three best Chums from three different countries I play all the time. I’ve never met a mean chum. And with the virtual chunk change we earn we can acquire all kinds of hats and trinkets for fashion and roll playing. The graphics are so cute and clever. One of my best Chums even likes to be my twin. I love to find the best word, and with the hints I usually can! The only thing I would like is to know what the best word would have been if I didn’t make it not just higher points than the word I had ( if that makes sense). All in all I look forward to each word my Chums put out. I do feel bad when I beat them but not as bad as when they beat me!! I like it better than WWFs.

Liked it but not anymore


I used to really like this game but recently one of the ads makes it impossible to play it. There is no exit for this ad and I end up having to restart my tablet every single time it pops up. I have had to reinstall this game twice so far and will probably have to do it again and it’s always after this game ad about pyramid solitaire. I don’t mind ads but when they make it impossible to play your game because it does not give you the option to exit after it shows you it’s demo. I am not going to download it so I did try one time and it still get it every time. I should not be forced to have to download a game I do not want with the possible option of that I had not popping up anymore which did not work because I tried that already
