    I absolutely agree. There should be a beg, int & advanced option.
    Now it holds no challenge.

    We now have the Word Strength meter. Why can't the game use this to play a better SOLO game? SOLO play is almost useless because the computer plays so stupidly. Please use the Word Strength meter to help SOLO play better. Thank you.


    Ultimately, it makes it no fun to play...

    Can someone tell me how to access SOLO PLAY? I have searched and looked every place possible at this site to find out how I can get Solo Play. Nothing comes up.

    Hi Susie,

    Solo Play is available only on iOS and Android devices. You can find it on the main screen of the game after you have loaded it. I'd like to ask if you're referring to getting it on the web version or is it missing from your mobile version of the game?

    I am new to Words With Friends and have been playing the solo play. I am confused as the computer is playing words like "eme" across with the e making another word down that is not a word. It is "ef"
    When looking up eme it said it was a noun suffix.
    Is this allowed?
    The real issue for me is the "ef". It says its the letter "f". Is this allowed?
    I guess since I am new to this game I should have a better understanding of what is allowed.
    Where can I find the complete instruction guide for this game?

    It appears to me that the problem with solo play is that the computer doesn't play defensively. It frequently sets you up with easy access to triple words and other high point plays. So while it may use obscure words that I would never come up with I still always win.

    EF is a word. If you use the dictionary function, any words that give you a definition are valid words.

    I once tried playing as for as low a score on each hand as I possibly could so that SOLO would have to beat me. It was silly, but fun.

    I agree that it is way too easy. An advanced playing level would be great, though you would have to program strategic game play.

    Welcome! You may be new to the game, but you have already identified the main weakness of the game! Playing Solo is perhaps the best way to identify this weakness, which is the game dictionary. Yes, you will soon find a great many "words", some abbreviations, some anacronyms, and some foreign derivations of English words that are all accepted in this game. There is no apparent rhyme or reason why some of them are accepted but similar others are not! Thus, on these forums you will also find several threads bemoaning this weakness and urging for using a more standard dictionary. Wait until you come across the words that are accepted but have no definition yet! Hahahaha!

    I enjoy playing solo play because it moves along quickly, until it doesn't! The last few days have been very frustrating. Instead of a word being generated every two minutes, it can be hours!! My primary "complaint" is the use of proper names, foreign words, obscure (to say the least) words, abbreviations, spelling variations etc. Too many times I've had to look words up and been unsatisfied with these words being allowed. All that being said, I enjoy solo play very much.

    I would like to know why, when playing Solo '****' is not allowed but EE is? Also words that Solo uses are not admissible on the web game?
    FYI **** is in the http://wordfinder.yourdictionary.com/ showing points in Scrabble and 'Words with Friends' but I was not allowed to use it!

    I love Words with Friends Solo. Competitive. BUT last 4 games there's no challenge. Always was competitive in score, now Solo is atleast 200 below. WHAT HAPPENED?? Very disappointed.
  • CzacharCzachar Posts: 2Registered User, Facebook Connect User Not a Title, but a Star

    About 2 weeks ago, playing against the computer became just way too easy. Why?

    Is there a way to increase the level of play?

  • cliffthurbercliffthurber Posts: 1Registered User, Facebook Connect User Not a Title, but a Star

    I have also found that Solo became mysteriously uncompetitive recently. Can you restore the stronger Solo play?

  • Sofia AllianahSofia Allianah Super Moderator Posts: 1,070Super Moderator mod

    Hello, Wordies! Your concern with the Solo Play feature has already been reported to the team.

    Thanks for your patience.

  • DebbieYDebbieY Posts: 2Registered User, Facebook Connect User Not a Title, but a Star
    Yay, Solo play is fixed! Thank you!

    Hi @davids! If you're pertaining to active games, they all can be opened under the "Your Move" and "Their Move" sections. But, if your question is on how to start a Solo Play match, this can be done by going to "Create Game" tab, then select the "Solo Play" option.

    I think solo play isn't, meant to be defensive. I use it to develop my knowledge of rarely used words. However I can't understand why "****" and "****" are acceptable but "Jews" is not. Is there a reason for this?

  • my sweet innamoratamy sweet innamorata Posts: 347Super Moderator mod

    Proper nouns are unaccepted in the game, @Jumbuk464. Here's an article link that you can open for more details. Can you also tell us what those two words that you've mentioned in your previous message, so we can have it checked? Thanks.

  • ctussaudctussaud Posts: 2Registered User, Facebook Connect User Not a Title, but a Star

    I have an archaic Solo game on my phone which is now 180 days old. I have Rematched, but that game has never disappeared. How do I get rid of it?

  • my sweet innamoratamy sweet innamorata Posts: 347Super Moderator mod

    Performing some basic steps may help in resolving your concern, @ctussaud. Please refer to these links for instructions: iOS and Android. You can update us anytime.

    How does the Solo bot get away with using "peroxy" as close enough to "proxy" and "feaze" for "faze" as shown on the "dictionary"!
