  1. Scoring

    I don’t understand your scoring system-I don’t think I like it. I prefer if it was more like QuizUp.

    • I paid for an ad-free version, but it only took my money. Still have tons of ads.

      Deliver what you advertise. If you can’t, don’t take money from trusting customers.

        Coins should be doubled each day. It just prevents people from playing.

        • What rules!

          A while ago I answered “mite” under the category insects starting with M. It was marked wrong. I looked it up, and sure enough a mite is an arachnid. So I didn’t dispute it. Well just now I got the same category and same letter. My opponent answered “ millipede” and that was accepted. If a mite isn’t an insect, then a millipede surely is not one either. What are the rules on your list?

          Furthermore, I have submitted disputes on valid answers, and I have not received a response. Two that I remember, from many weeks ago, were “National”…

            Thank you for reaching out! We receive a TON of disputes and have a team of researchers carefully reviewing, researching, and resolving each one. We base our decisions on a set of criteria for accepting answers, which is primarily based on the official game rules. Here are a few reasons:

            - Answers can not begin with an article: A, An or The (example: The Wizard of Oz is not okay for ""T"", but Wizard of Oz is okay for ""W"").
            - Answers can not be plural, as then they are actually duplicates of other answers (example: bluebird is acceptable, but bluebirds is not).
            - We cannot accept misspelled answers, as they too are duplicates of the correctly-spelled words (example: Keira Knightley is correct, Kiera Knightly is not).
            - Answers can not be adjusted with, for example, a simple adjective (example: Rose is acceptable for a flower, but Pink Rose is…

            • See results of dispute in detail

              It would be nice to see if the game reviewers saw our logic or not and also be awarded coins when successful because often it loses ya a challenge for no good reason when something’s not recognized that should be. I see that sometimes it’s accepted and I get a reward but not always. Sometimes it just says review and I can’t click on and don’t even know what it was in regards to.

                I lost all of my levels and progress, but some how kept all of my frames and trophies. No one has responded on how to fix this.

                • [FIXED] Scattergories Facebook not signing in

                  [Jan 17th 9:30 AM EST]
                  We have resolved the issue and Facebook login should once again be working. There is likely to be a longer than normal delay on signing in so please be patient with the loading process.

                  [Jan 16th, 2018 4:30 PM EST]
                  We are aware of an issue causing Facebook accounts to not be able to sign in right now and are working with Facebook to get everything restored. Please check back here for updates.

                      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!

                    • Censorship

                      Censorship makes no sense. I understand censoring out vulgar or crude words, but even normal words like Indian and Jewish are censored.

                        I paid $3, but still get the repetitious 30 second ad after every game. Restoring purchases did not work.

                              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!
                              We’ve also added the ability to dispute auto-corrected words, so you can petition to have your original word added to our database of correct answers. Simply tap Dispute from the results screen and enter your reason for why we should include it.

                              In addition, here are some guidelines to abide by, in order to avoid triggering the auto-correct system:

                              - Answers can not…

                                I think it would be helpful if an ampersand or number were available, as some tv or movie title are long and under the time pressure, less typing is better. If you were playing at home, you would use the shortcuts.

                                      You are right, the proper verb would be “ford” in English. I’ve removed the word from the list of correct words.

                                      Thank you for pointing that out,

                                    • Use of "The"

                                      "The" should be allowed when it is actually part of a title. For example, there is a classic rock band called "The Who." It is not "Who." This answer won't go through because it starts with "the." Answers that start with "the" should be okay when "the" is part of a proper noun.

                                        Please see the original rules for Scattergories:

                                        As noted there under “Rules for acceptable answers”; answers starting with an article simply need to have the article dropped when submitting the answer. We’ve based our rules off of how the original board game worked and that’s why it works this way.
                                        If you enter a word that is marked incorrect and wonder why please review this FAQ article I’ve written that should help explain what to do to get that word included in our database:

                                        This keeps closing mid game. Very frustrating.

                                        • Doesn't load on Tuesday now?

                                          Today (1.30.18) is the 2nd Tuesday in a row that the app keeps "updating"...never opening. Do too many people earn coins on Tuesday? :/
