From the makers of Just Words comes WordChuck, a multiplayer game that delivers hours of word scrambling fun. Make as many words as you can from the mixed up grid before time runs out. Create words by dragging from the first letter to the last. Choose letters vertically, horizontally or diagonally, but choose wisely because each tile can only be used once. The more words you make the higher your score. Drop into a community game to see who has the biggest vocabulary and the fastest fingers.

Good news AOL people... America On Line upgraded their browser. As AOL users know, playing WordChuck thru AOL was a problem. It disconnected frequently. I just played WordChuck for an hour without any trouble. Hopefully it'll stay that way. Good luck me buckos, Yarr, etc.

I cannot play this game because there are never any people playing it, or at least that is what the game says.  The preview might say there are eighty people playing, but when I enter, there is nobody or just one person who doesn't respond to chat.  How can I fix this?  It happens with firefox or IE

I find it ridiculous to believe that anyone can get 70 or more words in by typing or swiping the mouse. I accept that some kind of scam is going on but I accept it because no one plays in the other rooms anymore. There are only 2minutes in every game and I have seen over 90 posted. I just laught to myself and play the best I can.

Hi my name is Danielle.  I have been playing WordChuck for quite a while, and honestly, I have just improved over time.  When I read some of the comments here I don't know whether to laugh or to cry.  Unfortunately, there is no simple way for me to prove to any of you that I am not cheating.  I am defending myself here because many of you have actually accused me of cheating in the chuck room.   All I can tell you is that if you knew me well, you would understand that cheating is not part of my character.  I have a code of ethics which would never allow me to cheat at any game.  What is the fun in that?  I frown on cheating the same as many of you have mentioned here.   I have really come to like many of the people on WordChuck.  It's nice to socialize with obviously well-mannered, intelligent, and fun people.    I am a very fast typist from my many years working in the publishing industry.  I can tell you that when I win it's truthfully due to my fast typing  combined with a love for word games (and lots of practice!) That's it in a nut shell.

i cannot get onto the game anymore it's been about a year.  Obviously you all are still playing.  Is there something I am doing wrong?  Even when I scroll through the rooms my game show 0 players in all the rooms, but that can't be right.  Any ideas?

Can anyone help me ??? Everytime I click on Wordchuck so I can play, it shuts off, what am I doing wrong, or what do I need to download to get the game to work again ?  Please help, I miss the game !

just reading your comments about people who get 100 words.  we only get 120 seconds so thats pretty quick typing.  Very hard to believe. also why do some people never have a bad game.  I don't care how good they are everyone hits a wall sometimes.  Me more than most!

Greetings Wordchuckers.  I discovered this thread by accident but glad I did.  I recognize a lot of the member names in this topic - and if yall recognize mine - you know I never "chat".  Nothing personal.  It distracts me.  This is a game site - so I play games.  Anyway - I'd like to comment about people using programs.  I've often wondered if that was the case.  I know what you mean about the same few getting 100 words or 600 points.  When I started playing - I often placed at the bottom.  Gradually I learned and improved.  But I do not use a program.  I, like you, think that is cheating and absolutely no fun what so ever.  My personal strategy is just to get as many words as I can find.  I don't look for patterns, although I should.  I don't even start with high point value letters first, which is a bad habit and I'm trying to break that.  I just go.  Mostly three and four letter words.  So if any of yall see me in there, you can rest assured ONELAUGH is not using a program.

I've asked this before and never get an answer.  Why doesn't the chat room directory show the number of players in the room?  Other games on this web site show the number of players in rooms.

Why don't the room show the number of players?  The "Chuck" room shows 1 player and there are about 20.  What's up?

@TheYellowShark  just go into chuck (social) - it shows nobody there but there are usually quite a few playing there so it must be a glitch.

@dg101799 I want to thank you. I have been dragging letters. I too type quite fast. I have been doing much better since I read your post. I just never thought about typing before

@dg101799   Hi Danielle, Deb here.  I've been accused of cheating as well.  I just take it as a compliment, laugh and say 'thank you'.  Have fun and don't sweat the small stuff :-).

@dg101799 I don't know DG, I think there may be some performance enhancing caffeine consumption taking place.  You are just too chipper in the mornings

@dg101799Hi Danielle     I am just a mediocre player .  I do not type at all.  I am just happy to get on and play.  You are one of the ones I enjoy playing with.  I have seen  a  player get on and be rude to you  then say time to leave,   CUL more than once.  There are some people I don't particularly like to play with but I do not call them cheaters.    I play a few games and leave.  I actually think you can really improve with practice.   KEEP ON CHUCKING

@dg101799 Danielle, there are some who obviously do cheat.  When they play they are consistently #1 and no one, not even the best players, has a chance against them.  I usually leave when they enter as there is no competition.  It takes the fun and challenge out of the game for all.  But in the end, it's only a game, no something to continue arguing over.  If you don't like the cheaters dominating the game, then leave when they enter, come back later.  Most of them don't stay long, just long enough to prove no one can beat them.

@Buds The rooms generally show no players or only one or two.  The room that consistently has players is Chuck.  It will often show none or one but once the game comes up there will be twenty or thirty playing.  It's some sort of glitch in the program.

@mcookriver274 I like your idea. I could never get higher than #8, even though I'm operating as fast as I think anyone could. I'd enjoy playing with others who are trying to be fair and straightforward. I love words and word games. It could be more fun if some of us who see things this way might go to a certain "room." So how about Deep Thought then?

@zelgat Amen Zel -- I agree 100% with you.  Have commented on this before.  Guess the game guru's don't care, or have no way to figure out who has a program.  hahaha.

ljhanaway

@zelgat I agree zelgat.  There are several that play in the room I do and once they enter, no one else has a chance, game after game they are in first place, sometimes with not only an incredible number of words but also the highest score.  I can see if someone mainly finds three and four letter words how they can accrue a good number but those are not high scoring words for the most part.  For someone to be that fast a typist and also find the most words AND the highest scoring ones consistently, game after game, they would have to have help.  Of course, I think they are cheating themselves because they've eliminated any challenge and, to me, that the most important aspect of the game.  At the same time, it's not fair to the rest of us who are relying on our own fingers for speed and our own minds to find words.

@WELDMANM Exit the game (top right corner) and scroll down to the listing of rooms.  At most times all show no players, sometimes they will show one player.  Click on room of choice and wait for the next game to begin and it will then show the players in that room.

@Coinsaplenty The longer and better you play, and the better you get at placing the extra letter, the more you come to realize that the higher scores are quite possible to reach WITHOUT cheating.  Have fun all.

@ljhanaway @dg101799   I honestly don't think anyone is cheating is really my point.  If you play this game long enough and can type quickly, then it's possible to consistently win.  It's sad that when someone is very good at this game that they are immediately considered a cheater.  That's just wrong.

PROSE221b
PROSE221b

@Coinsaplenty LOL  This is what I meant to say:  I used to feel the way you do, but the longer and better you play, and the better you get at placing the extra letter, the more you come to realize that the higher scores ARE quite possible to attain WITHOUT using a program/cheating.  AND you have to take in to account that some of these players are on here every day for hours and hours.  Have fun all, see you in Chuck.
