This game is fun but increasingly frustrating. The algorithm that runs this game takes the fun out of it. If you play long enough and against other opponents you will see that after you win some games and get a decent rank you will start to see some terrible letters in your hands. "Random" drawn letters you dont see a Z X U U U U as common as you do. When I first started I thought the game was pretty fun but the mundain lack of randomness of the tiles takes the fun out of it.
For fans of the board game this software has significant differences. The scoring system is very different, which, OK, I can accept as just a variation of the rules that doesn't really affect game play. The serious flaw, however, is its dictionary, which allows far too many words not to be found in a standard dictionary. A solid vocabulary can be of little use against random plays that are accepted as valid. The result is that the continuous frustration has ruined this game for me.

A really great and fun game! The constant ads are annoying, but they're easy to swipe away. The game does have some minor bugs (like the game board freezing up sometimes) but these bugs will probably be fixed soon in future releases. All in all, a very well-written online game, which is very addicting.
