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.

ATTENTION ALL "DEEP THOUGHT" PLAYERS!


LOOKING FOR SOME OF THE REGULAR PLAYERS FROM THE DEEP THOUGHT ROOM.  SINCE WE CAN'T GET INTO DEEP THOUGHT ROOM ANY LONGER, SOME OF US ARE PLAYING IN THE EASY PEASY ROOM.  HOPE TO SEE YOU OVER THERE.  WE MISS SEEING YOU!

Hey DG,  I don’t normally read these comments but when I saw your name here it took my attention and I feel I have to add my own two pence worth !.  There seems to be a vicious backstabbing sect roaming these rooms that takes great pleasure in slating people who play well. I’ve read the comment about ¬how can anyone get more than 70 words in 120 seconds`...well yes they can and there’s quite a few who play who can do that and more.  I think they have to backstab others who do well to cover their own short comings.  Everyone plays to try and win, it’s a competitive game and that’s what’s its all about.  If you can only get 40 words, good for you but I bet you will feel great with yourself when you get 50, then you will aspire for 60 and so on.

I’ve been playing for just over a year and when I started I was normally 15 to 20th in the room. I got better, through practice and aspiring to beat some of the `greats` I usually now get around 60 odd words with my PB being 90, a one off that I’m proud of.  DG is one the greats and I have beat her a couple of times and boy, do I feel good when I do (not as often as I would like) I go under a different name when I play now due to the stupid childish comments from the sore losers club

One day, one out that club will win a game and have a PB word count, don’t worry, I have the comments all lined up !!:-)

DG, play and be great, but watch out, I’m nipping at your heels

teri2030 - No problem starting Word Chuck.  Have been playing in Easy Peasy room.  Usually play Deep Thought room but that hasn't been working for a while.  Others have posted the same problem.

Is anyone else having trouble getting Wordchuck to start within the last week who has AOL as their provider?

I was always able to get into Wordchuck and now it goes to deep thought and won't start.  AOL will not help - they say you have to join up and pay for them to help, yet it is their fault.  My computer is running fine.

I am technologically impaired, so when you talk about cheating, I have no clue how you would do that.  I don't type the words I just click on the letters and hit enter.  I usually end up on the leader board, but I don't have any extra help.

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?

Those of us "normal" players should agree to play in deep thoight or easy peasy rooms?

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!

@Angymac5  I sent in a complaint about the issue and got a response.  Was told to clean out my browser and java cache, try a different browser, update my browser and java, etc.  Was given a whole list of things to try.  I sent back a response saying that I didn't think the issue was on my end.  Others were having the same issue too.  Told them to look at this comment section.  Also, I have no problem entering the game in other rooms, just the Deep Thought room.  Will let you know if I get a second response back.

@Angymac5  Hi Angy.  I've been playing in Easy Peasy room too.  Don't see any of the regulars from the Deep Thought room either.  Still can't get into that room. Maybe some of the regulars will see these posts and join us?  Hope so.  Miss playing with the regulars.

@exile  exile, or whatever name you are afraid to use in the comments here, most, as you say, have worked their way into the top percentage of winners.  However, not so much now, but in the past, there were definitely some using programs to win and, when they played, it eliminated all competition.  When the usual top winners were finding 60 or 70 words, these people were finding 90 and 100 something consistently.  I'm a fast typist and usually a fast thinker and I've been the winner my share of times.  However, no one stood a chance against those using programs.  I don't think anyone posting here about that use was being mean spirited toward legitimate winners.  I don't see complaining about those using programs as backstabbing, merely a protest against a form of cheating and taking away the fair competition of the game.  I'm wondering why you took these comments so personally and why you were so afraid to put the name you use when playing to your comment.

@AdryFrmr  Usually none of the rooms show anyone playing but tonight Deep Thought was showing six players so thought I'd go there.  I could see the names and commercial but no game and no chat from the other players.  Tried posting and I could see my posts but no response.  A definite glitch in the program.

@AdryFrmr I have just got the same trouble, it will not load in deep thought, I have just reporeted it

@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  Hey DG, i know who is accusing and i just let it go.  I know u do not cheat, nor do the others who have been accused, just a bit on the stupid side.  So u go girl and get all those words honestly, like i do!!   I enjoy playing with you!!

@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

ljhanaway

@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 always play in deep thought but cannot load it at the moment so am playing in easy peasy, very often i am the only one playing, but due to the different time zones between the UK and the US it is not surprising

@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?

@ljhanaway @exile it seems to be that your starting accusations here ! You can wonder all you like, it will probably help your game, Just because some people win all the time it seems to be the rights of the few to accuse them of wrong doing, some people are very good at this can..fact !  but rant away....your hole not mine

@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.

dg101799

@exile @ljhanaway i think it's ridiculous that you think people are using a program to win. who would bother?!  i can assure you, ljhanaway that it is not impossible to get over 100 words without cheating...
