Almost perfect.


This really is a great game. If anyone wants to use it to improve their scrabble play, please be aware that the word list it uses is probably not the one you will use playing the board game. Many words are absent from the official dictionary, for example, and the best I could find if the word list it uses does not have even rudimentary definitions, or other justification for its inclusion, let alone information on who compiled or maintains the word list.

This isn't so much a complaint, as I suspect this is some nonsense involving copyrights, et cetera, but I would love to have a dictionary like version of the words the game deems acceptable.

Almost Perfect


This is a game perfectly suited to me in that it is easy to pick up and play for as long or short as I like, the format is great, and I have yet to encounter a glitch. I started out playing words with friends before my son in law showed me a cheat AP people use to win those games (really?!). So I love this ....can challenge myself by trying to up scores knowing I do not cheat! It is e only game I play as well.

Worthy option


Wanted a scrabble-like alternative where I didn’t have to play against another person/computer. This is the best option I’ve found. Playing alone is great, the challenge is using all the tiles.
Love it but:
Sometimes the only tiles that come up are all vowels or consonants
After you win it doesn’t automatically start a new game
Wish the dictionary had all the scrabble words
