  1. Stop changing answers & other unfair gameplay

    I type "howled" and it becomes "hopped" (which duplicates another player). I type "Cosmo" and the game pluralizes it. Yet, I type Deborah instead of Debra and that one sticks. Funny how the game seems to often change winning words to losing ones, yet leaves slight misspellings (which the rules indicate are acceptable) alone to also lose.

    Between this and the bots who can answer 12 categories in 6 seconds, with some answers consisting of five to seven words (seriously?!), this game is setting people up to fail.

    There's nothing more frustrating than unfair gameplay. Looking at you, 90026. If…

      • Disputes other's answers

        If someone puts an answer that I don't feel should count, I want to be able to report it. For example, someone I know who was playing the game was given the category of countries beginning with the letter H. The person she was playing against put Hawaii as a country and got points for it even though Hawaii is a state. Players should be able to dispute an answer that someone else got "correct" because that is ridiculous.

        • Win coins

          Should be able to win coins when you win a round. If it costs coins to start a round then the winner should get some of the pot. Also this makes it free for the person challenged but cost for the person who created the challenge.

              • Fix your answer database

                I'm asked to give a tv star for letter B; I give Bryan Cranston. It's marked wrong, I dispute and my dispute is rejected. I'm asked a sandwich with B, I give Bologna and cheese. It's marked wrong I lose the dispute. Asked for a saying with K: I give keep off the grass. It's marked wrong, the ass in grass is starred out and I lose the dispute. I really could go on as this happens a lot, but you get the point.

                • Coins for winning the round

                  I have one quite a few rounds on games that say I should receive my coins back if I win, but then I don't get them. How do we dispute that?

                    • Dispute Autocorrected words

                      In answering 'Things as a Gas Station', I answered with 'Cars' which got auto-corrected to 'Cans' and marked as a duplicate with two other 'Cans'.

                      Can auto-corrected words be disputed? - i.e. that the original answer was actually valid and the autocorrect should be turned off?

                      In my example, above, there was no way to record that 'Cars' was actually the word I was attempting to write.

                      • Challenging Other Players Answers

                        I think there should be an option to challenge other players answers. For instance, one list said Fish and the letter was A. Two players put Angel Fish and were not given credit because it was a duplicate answer; however, a third player simply put Angel and the answer was accepted. Either the game needs to fix this problem or allow players to help.

                          I like this game but often my answer gets changed and then duplicates someone else. You should definitely not allow it to change answers.

                          • The keyboard

                            Honestly, the keyboard sucks. Half the letters don't even register and then the answer gets spelled wrong. It's also super annoying because the letters just are weird to type on. Please fix. It's so annoying.

                            • Coins received for accepted disputed answers not enough.

                              Considering that a non accepted answer is often times the difference between winning or losing 40+ coins, accepted disputes should be much larger. Especially considering it is a fault of the game developers, compensation should be enough to make up for that mistake.

                                          This game is constantly crashing. After ads for coins, and for bonus rounds. And also just randomly during a game causing me to lose coins. It's caused me to lose most of my coins, and there is no apology, or coins given back. This issue has been happening for like a week, and the creators of this game do not seem to care, as this issue has not been resolved.
