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.
If you found a real word that isn’t in the game’s dictionary, contact either Customer Support or our social network groups.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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).
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.
The following parts of speech are used in the dictionary:
The following may not used:
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.
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.
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.

The game has an automatic anti-cheat system that analyzes your in-game behavior. A player who accrues more than the maximum number of cheating points will get a warning or a ban
The multiplier is calculated based on the following formula: player's level * rank * Library ratio / 1,000
You can't get it back.
If your opponent goes 24 hours without responding to your challenge (i.e. they don't take their turn), the game is cancelled and your life is returned.
All players with the free version of the iOS /Android app have a certain number of lives. Lives are required to initiate battles with opponents. You lose a life when you start a game, but you get it back if you win (but not if you lose). Lives regenerate automatically up to the maximum amount over time (you can reduce the time it takes for them to regenerate by upgrading your Library). You can also pay to have your lives regenerate instantly in the in-game store. Sometimes you can get free lives for watching videos.
This number shows how many books of a particular type you have collected to read.
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.
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.
If your opponent has not responded to your challenge within a 24 hours, the coins will be returned to your account.
Based on the results of a Fair Play game, the rankings are determined in the following way:
Any player of level 3 or higher can join a clan or create their own.
The “Clans” section is unlocked at level 3. Reach level 3, then log out of the game and back in again.
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.
No, you can only play for one clan. To join another clan, you need to leave the previous one.
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.
The reward for completing a clan quest depends on the rank the player reaches in the final quest statistics. Ranks 1-5 get the best rewards. Coins have more “value”, the chance of coins and ranking points dropping are the same, and books have a 4% chance to drop
To leave your clan, go to "Menu" → "Clan" → "Roster." At the very bottom of the screen, in the line with your information, is a little door.
The number of words on the board in clan quests changes according to a sine wave pattern. Once you have completed a few difficult levels you will get a few easier ones, and then you'll get harder ones again. The point of this is to let clans that aren't quite as powerful, but are very disciplined, catch up to clans that are more powerful, but lazy.
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.
Yes, all those in a clan at the end of a sprint get the 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.
Similarly to awards, if you enter before the end of the week, you get an achievement. If later, then you don’t.
Yes, you will get a reward and an achievement as well.
This offer may appear if you attempt to go beyond the limits set for the free version, such as:
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.
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.
