  2. I must say that WWF has opened up a whole new world for me. No longer do I sit down and have “nothing” to do. My IPad is always in my lap playing the game, whether I get busy or not. Of course I try to limit the time playing, putting my priorities in order, but the best part of my day is trying to beat my opponents. Thank you WWF for keeping my mind sharp and having fun doing it!
