To install and play the Words With Friends Classic on your PC or Mac, we have painstakingly written these instructions to get the game running on your computer. Now follow the 4 simple steps below:
I can almost stomach the advertisements between the games but what is going on now is ridiculous!! Every time I want to go to the next game the screen goes black and I have to completely get out of the site then bring it back up. It is so Annoying I am seriously ready to give up on this game. Fix it or take it off
My enjoyment of the game is only limited by the obnoxious and insanely numerous ads I have to sit through.
The amount of adds gets tiresome. It’s especially irritating that they go to such lengths to hide the x on many so you can’t shut them off or when you do find and use it, it opens the site anyway!!!
I’m new to Words with Friends, and so far I’m not enjoying it at all. Why must I subject myself to casino-like distractions? It’s all so immature. I’d like simple, clean boards, tiles, and scores.
I like the original design,this design allows small words unless one likes to be in jeopardy all the time. It’s more like keep away. Also new words appear all the time many which are not in the scrabble dictionary. One week they’re not allowed so I don’t make them,next week they are allowed and I get nailed. The designers are arrogant and are not into the spirit of the game and they seem to care less. I guess they feel that if you change the name it’s you can do what you like. So American..
I have a game that is stuck. I have asked for help several times but never received it. Hence my rating.
Love playing, once it gets going but SOOO slow to open. Adverts can be a pain at times.. If I type a note on the right side to my opponent and wish to amend anything..... it just jumps up and down not allowing one to do so.
I’m not sure how they can call this the “classic” version of the app, it is filled with garbage power ups, achievements, and useless notifications that I can’t get rid of. When I download a game called “words with friends,” I just want to play a game of words with my actual friends, I don’t want stupid challenges or bonuses or any of the complete trash that is all over this app.
I’ve reported this app due to the fact that every ad right now bypasses the system wide mute setting and blasts volume at full, without option to mute the ad.
Besides all of the ads between moves and the crazy high cost to change that, there are bugs. For instance, I was so happy to get 555 points in a game, but in my stats, it says my high score is 393. Also, it isn’t updating my wins in stats. So what is the point??
When the commercial comes on, at times it has got stuck. Where I have had to delete the game and re add the app. Annoying
I have played words with friends for over 12 years on a constant basis, so I can speak with some authority about the negative issues that are ruining this fun, and challenging computer game. Children should be encourages to play, because the growth of language and learning that can happen is well worth it. HOWEVER There is too much emphasis on leaderboards, who cares? Cheating is rampant, and there is no way to get rid of the cheat sites,Bols, and others, etc. As a veteran player, I can spot a cheater after several plays, and these idiots are among the top leaders. If you want to save this game, cancel the leader board stuff altogether, never mind the cartoon players, etc and the prizes, medals and all the stupid glitzy crap. You could set up class I to 5 competition for those who want to win at any cost, thus allowing new or inexperienced players to play with others of the same ability. That way, the better players could have their little ego trips, and they would soon know who the cheaters were. Depending on skill and experience, this would sort out the different levels very easily, and everyone would enjoy this game. You could have the cartoon players for the young players, and that might work fine, It is no fun to get bombed by some ego maniac who sits with the bols cheat sheet at his right hand, and the loser usually just goes away, and plays something else. I now that Zynga promotes words as being the most popular game going, but you are losing the experienced player because you are not making changes to your formats to stay ahead of the curve The other issue you need to address, is your dictionary of choice. You allow certain phrases, za, ah, eh, bit you disallow pronouns, and as well a lot of terms that are certainly found in dictionaries currently in use all English speakIng countries. While it is difficult to control usage, the online SCRABBLE games do it better than zynga does. They use a single dictionary that is current, and it make for better play,why don’t you do the same? Once lost, a player does not return!, Dr. Richard Sandilands
