Keep your mind going

i think it is great it is a good mind challenging game
Adult Written bysarahp9 November 1, 2015

Obscure words, horrid use in sentences.

I love the ability to play with friends anywhere, and with the computer, to learn new words. However, I find the acceptable and unacceptable words ridiculous in their inconsistency. Why are some foreign words, abbreviations, medical terminology acceptable, others not? And most disturbing, while playing "solo" with the WWF computer, I played the word "mort", which I knew was French for "dead/death." Out of curiosity, I checked WWFs definition and read the following: NOUN: 1. The note played on a hunting horn signifying that the animal hunted has been killed. 2. Death EXAMPLE SENTENCE: " Mort is bound to be a favorite of younger kids, as are the penquins." This is sick and senseless.

I have tried playing with this game and its really cool and interesting..Me and family love to play this game when we are not busy..We always find a way that we can spend each other..We also use the ANAGRAMMER to give us a clue in times we are having a hard time..

I hate it when people start a game and don't play. They wait 6 or 7 days between words. They are very inconsiderate of others, its like they hope you resign to build their stats I think if people do not play after 1 nudge they should be automatically resigned from the game. I waited 9 days once for some one to play and that is way to long to hold up my game

Hi there... I started playing words w/ friends almost 7 years ago. Here last couple years it has to me become a dating site. Because now u can message pep & pep are finding out where u live & messaging sexual things to u etc. I think they need to take the messaging off the game ASAP! Wouldn't let my kids play w/ the way it is now. Thank you for listening.

Very educational..If you let your kids play this game they will learn but you should watch them play because there are some words that are not good also..I use to play this game with my family..I let them use the ANAGRAMMER to give them some hints in times of trouble..

For me its okay because its knowledgeable and if I am a mother I will let my children play it but they should not set aside there studies..Study first before playing. I am also playing this game and I do use the ANAGRAMMER it will give me hint in times of trouble.
