On which devices and platforms is the game available?

The game is currently available on Apple and Google platforms. It is also available for the following social networks: VK, Facebook,Odnoklassniki, My World, and Photostrana.

I get an offer to buy the Pro Version when I start the game.

This offer may appear if you attempt to go beyond the limits set for the free version, such as:

  • having more than three games in progress at once (a game is considered to be in progress once you have played the first round);
  • playing more than one game against the same player.

I get an error when I try to purchase the Pro Version

If you have an iOS device, please check your device’s settings (Primary → Restrictions). In-app purchases might be disabled. You can also buy the full version in the app for one of the three social networks (Odnoklassniki, Facebook, and VK). You will have a much broader range of payment methods available that way. You can then log into the same social network account on the same device, on which the purchase was made.

I found a word, but it isn’t in the dictionary

If you found a real word that isn’t in the game’s dictionary, contact either Customer Support or our social network groups.

My achievement wasn’t unlocked

It may be that the conditions required to unlock the achievement were fulfilled in a game that was ended automatically (auto-lose/auto-win). Most achievements can only be unlocked if a turn is completed by both opponents.

I’ve added a player to my blacklist. How do I unblock them?

Go to the Messages section in the mini-menu in the lower right corner, select Blocked, and tap the X in the profile of the player you want to remove from the blacklist.

I have the free version. A player with the Pro Version challenged me to a rematch. Will I get an automatic loss?

If a player challenges you to a rematch, but you cannot accept it because you have the free version, don’t worry—you won’t lose automatically. The challenge will simply be deleted after 24 hours.

My opponent isn’t responding/isn’t playing

Your opponent may have lost their internet connection, quit the game, or the device he was playing on may have run out of battery. If your opponent does not complete their turn within 24 hours, the game will end automatically. If this happens and the game is “in progress” for both players, auto-lose/auto-win will be activated. If the game is not “in progress” for one of the opponents, it will end automatically.

Why can’t I enter tournaments?

Tournaments are not available for jailbroken devices. Tournament participation is also blocked for players who take two screenshots of the game board during a tournament.

I have the full version, but my opponent doesn’t. Can they accept a rematch request?

Unfortunately, no. Only players with the Pro Version can accept rematch requests. The Pro Version allows you to challenge players to a rematch and accept rematch requests, but it does not guarantee that every opponent will be able to accept a rematch request from you.

I purchased some coins, but they haven’t been added to my balance

Please contact Customer Support immediately and provide them with a screenshot of your receipt for the purchase from Google Play or iTunes (in the Purchases section—see below).

How are the point values for words calculated?

Each letter is worth a certain number of points equal to that letter’s position in the word.

For example, let’s take a look the word “chair”:
С → 1 point
H → 2 points
A → 3 points
I → 4 points
R → 5 points
Total: 15 points

There are also two different kinds of bonuses on the game board: those that multiply the points for a letter (x2, x3), and those that multiply the points for an entire word (w2, w3). These bonuses can have a very significant effect on a word’s point value.

For example, let’s say there’s a x2 bonus on “I”. In this case, instead of four points, the letter will be worth eight points, so the word will be worth 19 points in all.

If there is a w2 bonus on one of the letters, the word “chair” will be worth 30 points rather than 15. If a word contains bonuses of both varieties, the points from the x2/x3 bonuses are counted first, and then the total points for the word are multiplied by w2/w3. For example, if the letter “I” has an x2 bonus and the letter “C” has a c3 bonus, the word will be worth 57 points.

What are the rules for how the dictionary is compiled?

The following parts of speech are used in the dictionary:

  • nouns;
  • verbs;
  • adjectives;
  • adverbs.

The following may not used:

  • abbreviations.

Why was my ranking reset?

There are seasons in the game. When a new season begins, all player`s rankings are reset to their initial values so everyone has a chance to fight for first place on the leaderboard again. When the season ends, everyone who won a prize-winning place gets a reward in the form of coins, and their names are inscribed forever into YAWG history in the Hall of Fame.

How are ranking points calculated?

The number of ranking points you gain or lose after winning or losing depends on the difference between your rank and that of your opponent. If you beat someone whose rank is higher than yours, you earn more ranking points. However, if you lose to someone whose rank is lower than yours, you lose more points. The rule works the same way for a tie, where the player who has the higher rank loses points and the player with the lower rank gains them.

What do I need to do to increase my level?

A player’s level depends on how many games they have won. Below you can find a chart showing how many wins it takes to reach each level.

When can I join a clan/create a clan?

Any player of level 3 or higher can join a clan or create their own.

How is the clan member multiplier calculated?

The multiplier is equal to the product of the level and rank (of the previous or current season, whichever is greater) divided by 1,000. In other words, the higher the level and rank, the greater the member's contribution to the clan.

Can I play for more than one clan?

No, you can only play for one clan. To join another clan, you need to leave the previous one.

Why didn't I get a reward for reaching a clan milestone?

You can only get a reward for reaching a milestone once. If you move to another clan and reach the required clan level, the reward is only given to players who haven't received one yet.

What does the number above the book mean in the Library?

This number shows how many books of a particular type you have collected to read.

I found an 11-letter word, why hasn't it been counted?

Only words with the required number of letters count. In other words, if you need to find a 7-letter word, words with 8, 9, or more letters will not count.

How do I start a game in Fair Play mode?

You can start a game in Fair Play mode from the profile page of the player you would like to challenge or from the game results page. This will cost you 200 coins.

I challenged someone to a Fair Play game. My opponent has not responded. Will I get my coins back?

If your opponent has not responded to your challenge within a 24 hours, the coins will be returned to your account.

How exactly do the results from a Fair Play match determine the rankings?

Based on the results of a Fair Play game, the rankings are determined in the following way:

  • If somebody challenges you to a Fair Play game and you win, you will receive 2.5 as many ranking points as you would in a regular game.
  • If you lose, you will lose the same amount of points as you would in a regular game.
  • If you challenge someone and lose, you will lose twice as many ranking points as you would in a regular game.
  • If you challenge someone and win, you will receive twice as many ranking points as you would in a regular game.

At the start of the week there were 27 members in our clan, but the following day there were 24. Can we compete in the “Best Discipline” nomination?

When calculating the average number of quests completed in a day, only those quests started by a clan with 26+ players count. If, in this calculation, the clan still completes the average number of quests in a day, the clan can take part in the nomination.

I joined a clan in the middle of a week, will I get a reward?

Yes, all those in a clan at the end of a sprint get the reward.

I joined a clan when the results were being calculated, i.e., after the end of a sprint. Will I get a reward?

No, on the sprint results screen you will see information that your clan has come in a particular place, but you won’t get a reward.

I joined a clan when the results were being calculated, i.e., after the end of a sprint. Will I get achievements?

Similarly to awards, if you enter before the end of the week, you get an achievement. If later, then you don’t.

I left a clan when the results were being calculated, will I get a reward and an achievement?

Yes, you will get a reward and an achievement as well.
