    • Hi Barbara, if yoru opponent started your Words with Friends game with 1,500 points ahead it might be a bug or a hack. I’d love to see a screenshot of that. Thomas

    • Hi Peg,

      just take a look at the “leaderboard” in WWF. There you can find the Average Word Scores from you and your friends in this or the last week.

      Greetings Anja

    • Hi Betty,

      what you can do is to turn off the option “Play Someone New” (Settings -> Privacy).


  1. The game is over, it’s showing that I won 313 to 307
    But it also telling my friend that she won…please explain.

    • Hi Brenda,

      I would say it is a bug :-). Since we are not the developer of the game my suggestion would be to contact Zynga Support directly regarding this matter.


  2. I was required to download the newest version of Words and lmost of my games didn’t convert over like they were supposed to!

    • Hi Linda,
      I am not sure what went wrong and would like to suggest you to contact the developer of the game regarding your issue.
