I have collected the letters

T D X I M A I O S O O E

in Word Wizard. I tried to enter the word MOODIEST. I was told that I did not have the correct letters, that I was one letter short.

Check the end of the word. For some reason, it recognises a space as a character.

Happy to help. Did it say that you were missing an 'N'?

I played in the hour before midnight FT time. I wasn't allowed to play the following hour because it said I had already played. I thought that might be some kind of midnight glitch, so waited for the next hour. Rhis hour the home page shows the game unticked, but when I go to it my score from two hours ago is still listed, and I cannot play. I want my letters. frown

I am with looney tunes. I rarely played that game before but now I just play it for letters, and in doing so I got a badge (15/15) that I never was able to get before.

I thought it was my phone (it happens) but I see someone else is also experiencing this.

I'm in the same boat as looney tunes and Nammage. I have not been able to play since the 11pm game. My score is stuck in the list and I have been stopped, even though the game is not ticked on the homepage.

Perhaps it'll be fixed during the Maintenance Mode, if not before then?

Yeah, I'm stuck in there too. Two and half hours now and over 240 people have played on the same game!
(I stayed up later to hopefully get a couple more letters but off to bed now.)

No, it didn't say what I was missing. I was mystified.

I see that others are having problems with playing WW. I need to play it for a challenge.

I feel sorry for those that need to play either for letters or scores for their daily challenges, I would not be a happy Cookie if it was me

I need this to play for my medium daily challenge today.

I cant beat my score if I cant play and I need every possible game I can play cause I'm sure it picked my highest ever score for me to beat!

pmarney,

It is a Daily Challenge for me today. Though I have 8 letters, all of them are consenants but a single vowel, and I have to turn in a 5 letter word. With what I have, I don't see any 5 letter words.

Sorry to hear that, I know I would not have been pleased yesterday as had to do a 9 letter word for my difficult challenge.

Maybe a swap might be in order to get another vowel

Someone will sort it out shortly I hope.

I had an 11 word the other day, and while it was in my Medical dictionary, alas it was not in the Funtrivia one.

So, I ended up trading some letters, and until I can get more vowels, I will have to make do. Though, I feel perhaps if the game itself won't reset then is any of the other features in error, too? So I am holding off for now.

Word Wizard has not reset this hour. The last I played was a 7:25 cst, and it's now 9:08 cst. It's still showing me as having played this hour's game.

SOOOOO upset! I played in the 9:00 am hour, and it scored me at 6487 seconds!!! Excuse me, but there are only 3600 seconds in an hour! If they let that score count, I'll never climb out of the ratings hole.. :0((( I also have a screenshot to prove it!
