Very ad heavy game with "coins" requirements to play. You'll very quickly be forced to watch multiple 35 second ads to be able to play or be forced to use a 3rd party program that doesn't work to earn ways to play crosswords. If this app worked like the rest of zynga apps, it would be fine, instead, they got greedy, and once you're out of coins you'll delete it.
Love the game even if you aren't really playing with friends, but hate the coin system. I don't understand why it matters how quickly you solve a puzzle when that doesn't translate to "coins" earned. The clues cost too many points, aren't explained properly in the initial instructions on gameplay, fortunately I don't use them often, but once the coins are gone so is this app from my phone & tablet. Why Zynga is this game not like all the others. If you really wanted users to accumulate coins for play just fix the coin system. Because no matter how addictive I will delete this game once all coins are gone.
Honestly the game itself is great. Not overly challenging. Good for breaks at work. However there needs to be a better coin system. Getting achievements are far and few between. Maybe a daily sign in 10 coins. Or easier achievements. I'm not spending money on this game and there has to be a better way than downloading random apps (that I don't have space for) or watching a video for 5 coins a piece... besides the daily puzzle I can barely play anymore. There should also be a confirmation before spending coins in game. I've accidently hit a few hints when not meaning to...
It would be far better if you didn't have to pay coins for prior levels that you weren't able to log in and play. You can earn free coins by downloading other apps, buy them, achievements or by watching ads. Basically you're screwed if you don't have time to log in every day because you won't finish achievements to win coins and you'll end up downloading apps you don't need/want or wasting time watching 30 sec ads.
In any other game, a player can earn coins through their playing. Not so with Crossword with Friends. No, in order to earn coins to unlock previous puzzles, you must watch ads (that aren't available half the time) or buy them (which I refuse to do). Would be nice if you could earn coins for faster times, but this doesn't seem to be the case. That turns it into a game that limits the amount of time you can spend on it!
Kind of bummed that you don't play with friends in anyway. The crosswords themselves are good and a nice brain challenge but getting coins is impossible. I agree with others, there should be a better way to earn coins, like a daily login bonus and weekly coin allowance or earn coins on completed crosswords with no hints, etc.
