Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Nice game but some MAJOR flaws

Will somebody please tell me why this game will not me play "morphed" or "rehome"? Those are perfectly fine words. If the game won't recognize perfectly valid common English words, then what good is it?

Fine for younger kids if they are supervised

My eight year old daughter loves this app. She plays with her friends all the time. I'm trying to understand why the site rated it for 14 and up?? Maybe because, depending on who you are playing, the words can be hard to guess? Or maybe because it allows users to play strangers? I've just told my daughter that she is only allowed to play her friends. I also told her that I will frequently check the dialogue on the chat part. Neither of those "rules" have been a problem for us.
