Game Play Questions
Is my score tracked as a Guest when using the Android app?

I keep losing points, why?
Incorrectly selecting a word will cause you to lose points. Select carefully. If you mis-click or mis-select, you can always drag off the puzzle to unselect your current selection to avoid losing points.
Will there be an offline version?
No, there are plenty of other free offline word search games. This is specifically a multi-player competitive word search game.
Will private games/rooms be supported?
At this time, there are no plans for such a feature.
Can I play in landscape mode?
Not at this time. It is a planned feature, however.
Can you make the puzzle size smaller?
This is not currently planned. Smaller puzzles tend to be considerably easier, which do not translate well into a competitive environment where it would come down to who can click faster.
