    • Daily Challenges

      I've only played today, at first disappointed that we no longer win 75 coins when we win. Then I noticed it's free play. I won two challenges and was reward 20 coins each. So the heading needs to be changed to "win 20" or upped to 60 for players that win.

      • Cheater List (Please Add)

        Since so many players cheat, using variations of the same word, plural or double spacing and more to get credit and the game has not been updated to catch them. We should just list the players here. Feel free to add. Once I see a player that I know is going to cheat, I forfeit my coins and close the app. If they game catches up, and allows me to block players, I'm starting with this list. Feel free to add players so I can (hopefully) block them too one day!

          Variations of the same word are acceptable. Sorry, there’s no easy way to block those. Plurals are not supposed to be in the lists but some got through when we initially created the lists. If you see any plurals that are still being accepted , let support know, we can remove them from the database.
          Double spacing should now be completely blocked, but again please let support know if you are still seeing it.

            Thank you for your feedback on our keyboard! Our development team is working hard to improve the keyboard so that players can type quickly and have all of their taps register. For the time being, I personally find that tapping a bit more slowly as I enter words seems to be beneficial. It’s not an ideal solution, but it might help while we work on getting the keyboard fixed!

              There are many ways to earn coins in the game for free:

              - You earn your coins back when you win a match in a tournament
              - You win coins when you win a daily game mode match
              - You earn coins as you progress through personal tiers in tournaments and missions
              - You earn coins when you place on certain leaderboard tiers in tournaments
              - You can watch an ad to earn coins (from the store)
              - Coins regenerate at a constant rate

              These are 6 ways to earn coins without spending any money, which gives you quite a lot of options! Players who prefer not to wait or to take advantage of any of the above opportunities can purchase coins, which helps to fund the ongoing development and support of the app that is free for everyone to play.

            • It's strange how once a game ends and you make sure you type your answers correctly that a word you didn't type appears in your answers?!

              A fix is needed to make sure what someone types in is actually what is their answer, not some word put in they didn't type in.

                Thank you for reaching out! If your submitted word doesn’t match a word that is already on the answer list, our auto-correct system will try to correct it to the closest match, in case you’ve made a typo. We implemented auto-correct to help with spelling errors but unfortunately the system sometimes doesn’t know its own strength. Our development team is working hard to refine it so that it doesn’t take a reasonable answer and change it to something else in this way: it’s a work in progress!

                To help with this issue, you can now submit a dispute for the original answer that was auto-corrected. Just hit the ""dispute"" button on the results screen, and your original word will be submitted for review. We’ve added this new feature based on player feedback similar to yours.

                In addition, here are some guidelines to abide by, in order to avoid triggering the…

                    Thank you all for the valuable feedback. We are working as fast as we can to get all words that have been disputed and are correct for the category added to the database. We ask that if it is a word you think is correct to dispute it so we can then see that it is missing and add it.

                    As well coming shortly, if any word that you have disputed is correct, you will be receiving a notification with a small token of our appreciation and help to make the game as good as it possibly can be.

                    Thank you again

                  • Tournament Fraud!!

                    I won a tournament that said "win up to 1330 coins".... all I got for first place is 100 freaking coins!! What a rip off. I wouldn't have wasted my time playing for 100 coins. Where is this 1330 coins going??
                    You should post the exact prize amount for winning on each tournament.
                    I'm not playing anymore tournaments until this is corrected.

                      I’m sorry for the confusion around this! The “win up to” amount indicates the total amount of coins you can win by playing through all tiers of the tournament, including the 30-60 coins you win back each time you play and win a round. The actual amount you win for coming in 1st is the frame indicated on the leaderboard, plus 100 bonus coins.

                          Duel is a practice game mode that does not award coins for winning. Certain modes, like Tournament and Party, reward you for a win and it will clearly show a “WIN BACK” amount on the Play button. Keep an eye out for that to know which game modes reward a payout for a win.

                                You are correct and adding an ‘s’ should not count it as a separate word. If you could send support a ticket with the word/category we can remove the word from the database and it will then only accept the singular version of the word.
                                Adding other nouns after the first word has been decided to be permitted in the mobile version.

                                When it comes to World Leaders/Politicians, American Presidents from way back are accepted (eg: Ronald Reagan, George W Bush), yet Australian Prime Ministers from just a few years ago aren't? I have submitted Julia Gillard as an answer on multiple occasions and it isn't accepted. First female PM in Australia has to count for something, no?

                                    A tie always goes to the player who submitted his or her set of responses in the least amount of time. If you and I play a match together and tie, but it took you only 30 seconds to submit all of your answers and took me 35, you’ll be awarded the win.

                                    Hope that clears things up! We’ve included a notification screen in the game to help communicate this to players.

                                      Thank you for reaching out! If your submitted word doesn’t match a word that is already on the answer list, our auto-correct system will try to correct it to the closest match, in case you’ve made a typo. We implemented auto-correct to help with spelling errors but unfortunately the system sometimes doesn’t know its own strength. Our development team is working hard to refine it so that it doesn’t take a reasonable answer and change it to something else in this way: it’s a work in progress!

                                      To help with this issue, you can now submit a dispute for the original answer that was auto-corrected. Just hit the “dispute” button on the results screen, and your original word will be submitted for review. We’ve added this new feature based on player feedback similar to yours.

                                      In addition, here are some guidelines to abide by, in order to avoid triggering the…

Obviously this is just English and different languages would be excellent too! In the mean time, would you mind submitting alternate spellings (but not

                                        The auto-correct will change alternative spellings (for instance gray – grey) as you’ve mentioned. Being Canadian myself I prefer the Queens English but couldn’t convince them to use it. Auto-correct only ever changes spellings to valid words in our database, so it will always at least be a correct word for that category.
                                        For regional words we can and will accept them if they fit on a case by case basis, so send in your disputes!

                                        Wow. Looks like Scattergories deleted our posts complaining about the computer players! Has anyone else lost their coins too? I haven't played, came in to check forum and noticed coins are depleted. Just wow..

                                        At this point, I don't even want to play the board game anymore!

                                          I’ve been going through and answering forum posts. The only ones I deleted were abusive or did not belong in this thread. My apologies if one of yours was removed by accident. We have tracked down the issue with those players and are implementing a fix.

                                          Is it possible to submit more than one answer per category?

                                            There are some game modes that do this. The standard “Duel” and most game modes only allow one answer per category but there are a few that allow more. The missions I think do this.
