Nice colors too.

Those are the standard Android Holo colors found here: http://developer.android.com/design/style/color.html

I'm currently thinking about adding a setting where you can choose from the available colors to customize the two colors to your liking. But it's not the highest priority right now ;)

Glad that you like the game. Would you mind submitting a rating in the Play Store? ;)


PS: Challenge me! -> "Goddchen" :)

I haven't tried the game yet, downloading now. I'm curious but is it like Scrabble? Because I'm a scrabble freak.

Kind of, it has some of the same game mechanics. But it also introduces some new mechanics, make sure to read the help text before starting your first game :)

If you have question, feel free to ask here :)

while attempting to find the other forum via google where i previously posted i stumbled over this one.
So my comments to the game go here this time:

It is somehow unsatisfying that alot of common words are not known by the game. Of course often i am just trying to see if a word exists.
i.e. what happend a moment ago is that it didn´t accept: "cosplay" or a "cosplayer" is a somehow known term, specially when dealing with anime.
I know that you manually? review the list of unaccepted words and approve/disapprove them. Is there a way to speed this process up or even help you?

I know that you manually? review the list of unaccepted words and approve/disapprove them. Is there a way to speed this process up or even help you?

Exactly, the wordlist that it started with had ~87.000 words. I have already approved ~1000 words since the start of the beta. If you wanna help out that would be great. I have setup a web page for me to make the process easier (it does automatically look for german translations to help me out).

But you wouldn't believe what kind of words people are trying. I'd estimate that ~50% of those words are total crap, another 40% are just misspelled and the rest can be approved...

If you want to help out with reviewing the unknown words, get in contact with me in private (gmail, google talk, g+, whatever).
