STILL STOPS BEFORE THE GAME IS OVER It's annoying that the game ends before the clock runs out. I'm playing and have 7-8 seconds left and it ends with the clock still going. Also, it doesn't recognize "ade" as a word!!

Needs a chat function! This is my go-to time waster and there is a dedicated community of players that I have come to know. The problem is there is no way to interact with them! The game is in dire need of a chat room, ideally something that players can use in between games or while waiting for an upcoming game. Also the ranking system is easy to manipulate — there are some players who get to 100 and only play once every few hours to keep their name on the scoreboard. A win/loss record would be better. Excellent game otherwise!

I thought it was too much. The black background the me off. Bigger letters would help. Better organization
