It is fun...
With that being said, I do have some complaints: (1) The ads play with the volume on. It’s very jarring and annoying and kind of a violation tbh. We know you’re a free game which means you need ads, but it’s truly infuriating that they randomly play with the sound on even if your phone’s on silent. Plus, often, you’re not given the option to mute it once it’s already playing. (2) While the feature to play with all sorts of people is fun, there should be a limit to how long you have to wait for your opponent to take their turn. Sure people are living in different time zones, but if you start a game you should be responsible to finish it. I have games that have sat idle for two days and I can’t just quit them or it’ll count as a loss. Also, it seems like some people are holding people hostage, if you will, not playing their turn so they can try to talk to you, whatever their motives might be.
No time for whining
A real good time with a spin off of the board scrabble game but on a great mobile format which matches you up with opponents from all over the world. They have incentives which I enjoy as personal goal challenges. You can see your achievements on your personal profile page which others see only a limited portion of if they are playing you.
They do have a chat window which I use only to chat about the game at hand. I love the game and really want to improve my English diction but some players use the chat window for their own reasons and you soon learn how to find the players who love the game as much as you do so you both can enjoy the game the way it was developed to be. Just wish the chat window hat a controllable spell check feature.
A bug-free environment for my iPad and iPhone is a reasonably priced game for its in-app purchases so that you may use the word radar and super swap feature. You do not have to spend a penny if you do not want to because the game really is free.
The only thing I can strongly advise is parental control with young children. They do offer a profanity filter, but for young children, I feel from my experiences, the filter alone is not enough.
The game is awesome, its the people who come on here to chat that mess things up. You can choose to ignore them, and when you do they just do not play with you anymore they do not finish the game and so you are automatically the winner. There are a-lot of players that are amazing, that challenge you and some that are not that good, but in the end, the game is addicting. Just ignore those players that want to chat and you will be just fine.
I only wish that the games in which the chatter leaves because you do not want to chat, that those players are penalized somehow, like if they do that 3 or more times they are blocked from the game. This is not an online dating site, its a game. A darn good one too. Don't mess it up.
Like the Game But Improvements Suggested
I am in agreement with many others that I don’t like men trying to connect with me during this game. I am here to play it not to find a mate. I have one. I don’t dislike the chat feature totally just that part of it. Secondly since the last update my iPhone 11 has been very temperamental about moving the letters around when I’m attempting to find a good fit. Maybe you can look into that. Lastly I’ve had words that were actually words but weren’t accepted, how or where can we submit those for consideration? I do think there should be a limit on how many days the game is left open maybe three at most. Right now I’m seeing about five.
I love this game BUT...

This game is so much fun! My only 2 pet peeves is that it FREEZES after I send my turn EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. I’ll have to to close the app and restart it again and it’s so irritating 😩
My second complaint is when I collect my daily coins. It always tells me I have to wait for my video to load or something of that sort. Takes about 5 minutes then it finally works 🙄 other than that, it’s a great game. Helps kill time and gives me more knowledge learning new words. Oh! That reminds me, I also play Words with Friends and some words that works on that game don’t work on Word Wars which is weird. There are many words that are real words that this game won’t allow.. like the word “Quo” isn’t accepted.
Ok that’s all!
I like this game a lot but they give you these Quests in order to earn power ups and one of the Quests is to chat with opponents. However, the chat interface is REALLY REALLY BAD! And you can no longer see your typed words beyond about 6 words which leads to lots of errors in an already horrible interface. ANOTHER THING ABOUT THE CHAT...lots of guys just want to chat and not play. A simple Hello (to meet your Quest quota) is understandable. But beyond that, I don’t want to get into deep conversations with strange men. Seeing how the interface is so bad, chatting is really just a chore! Wish I could turn that feature off and earn power ups in a different way, in the place of chatting.
I absolutely love this game the concept all the elements to it make it fun for me if there was a spin on being able to switch up letters by buying power ups. However this is the only game I have on my phone it freezes every couple of turns the pop-up to come up each time and when it gets to the pump up it freezes and stays there I have to repeatedly close the app and start all over again it’s bad enough to deal with the pop-ups but I understand it’s a revenue for the creators, but it crashing and freezing really stinks I have the updated version. End it does this to me on two separate phones I don’t know if it doesn’t like me or is it good you guys can fix I hope it gets better cause I’m on the verge of quitting even though I love it
Fun word game but word of warning for women...
If you are just there to play the game and not getting chatted up by tons of men, be warned. I don’t mind a little casual banter but it always gets to the point of them wanting to just talk and not play the game. There is a block feature which I have used. But there is also a feature that occasionally pops up ‘encouraging chat’, when you haven’t chatted yet. I think some men mistake that for the female actually saying hi. It’s misleading and I would like it removed. If you are there for chat, have fun. Men, keep it casual. Not every woman has to have a man.

I love this app so much! I am encountering some issues that are not being fixed in the updates. They have to do with the advertisements after submitting a word...many adds have no volume button to turn off sound. The ad plays loudly despite having my ringer off and sound all the way down. Also, some ads never go away or don’t ever have a “close” icon “X.” The only way for me to continue playing is by closing out the app and restarting. It happens all the time with one ad in particular (football scratch off). Other times I have no choice but to click on the ad and it takes me to the App Store, then I have to close out again and reopen. It’s getting old. Please fix these issues in updates!
Good but has some big drawbacks
As far as I can find, there is no way to opt out of the constant barrage of invitations to games started by others. I must constantly decline and frankly don’t know how long I will keep the app if there is no remedy for this. I only want to play with my personal family members.
I like the change in the board’s tw dw tl dL spaces from what we are all used to in Scrabble. I like the chance to swap tiles and not lose your turn. I like the way the app indicates immediately if your guess is a word or not- just streamlines that process.
We were sad Scrabble had to end but glad we found this. Overall it’s great but the game invites may be a deal breaker unless this is changed to allow me to opt out.
