  1. New categories stink!

    Professional wrestlers? American airline company? Horse breeds? I've noticed a bunch of new ones that are really out there. It seems like so many of the new categories are for a select group of people. Last few games I played, players are winning with only 10 points because of the limitations set by new categories.

    • app size

      just wondering what could scattergories have to save on my phone that makes it one of the largest apps, it would be great if it could be smaller by half in size and run smoother

      • Bonus round ad takes away time

        When I watch the ad for the bonus round, the bonus round has already started when the ad ends. So, I only have about 15 seconds left to complete the bonus round. Even though I'm careful to close the ad the second it is over. Doesn't seem fair.

        • Extra round not working

          After watching the entire ad it still won't let me play the bonus round. Instead, it will go back to the option screen and say no ads available if you choose bonus round again. This happens about thirty percent of the time.

          • Duplicate answers accepted

            Just played a game where three players had duplicate answers - exactly the same- and one got points for it. Happened in 3 different categories. Lame.

            • Keep original gameplay all the time

              I noticed that original gameplay was just changed to some other kind of gameplay. I would like original gameplay to be permanent and have a tab solely for types of gameplay that change frequently.

              • Coins/videos

                When I watch a video for coins, I only receive the coins every other video; sometimes only one out of three! I haven't had this app for more than a few months, but I do remember a "double coins for watching a video" only once.

                In addition, if you win a tournament you only win 100 coins + frame. If you're in first place, you should win more than a player who comes in tenth place. Play for 100 and "win" 100 back? Is not winning anything!

                There should be more of a reward for winning not just tournaments, but…

                    Your game does not even recognise Gina Jefferies a multi award winning musician it doesn't recognise whip cracking or cracking a whip as a world record when our Nathan Griggs took the record from an American and I can list countless others... It's making me want to just give up and delete

                    • 12 categories with a decent amount of time please!

                      I would love to play a real 12 category game! I have found one case where I can, in a VIP tournament, but it only gives 1 minute. In the real game, I believe the timer is 3 minutes. How is it fair to have a mere 5 seconds per category? Especially considering the glitchy keyboard, it's pretty near impossible. Could we get a 12 category game with a decent amount of time please?

                            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.

                            • 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.

                                I'm very DATA conscious and I have to be and consistently I've noticed that your game is most always the heaviest data user of all 263 of my apps. It's far too heavy and a real storage hog For example almost all of my other apps if they even list the size of their files it's in kilobytes. You're the only one that's always about 30 to 40 MB

                                    The rules need to be available to refer back to. I remember seeing a "How to play" option when I opened the app the first time, but since I'd played the game before, I skipped it, figuring that if I had a question about the rules I could go look later. Now I have a question, but can't find the rules!

                                      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?

                                      • 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…
