First, in case you didn’t know: Wordament’s update is out! So, if you haven’t tried it, please! Go get it!
Today’s topic is in response to all of the feedback we’ve heard about our dictionary. No, we haven’t changed our dictionary… but we have sorted it a lot better, and focused our Individual Results screen on common words first:
In the screenshot above, notice that the Words not found list now contains a pivot control that is split between “Common words” and “Obscure words.” During game play, you can still find and enter words like TAE and QAT, but these will NOT appear in the Common list, because they aren’t common words.
We believe that every word in our dictionary is a real word—if you think you know of one that’s not… let us know! But, know that each word in the Common list has been “human verified” now, in addition to used commonly in multiple e-books.
We hope you find that our new design offers a better assortment of words that you recognize and missed. We still require that puzzles offer dozens of common words in each and every board. We don’t believe it is possible to find all of the common words in a given board in the 2:00 duration of a game.
We stand behind the Obscure words being in our games, because we have many wordies in here that know them, find them, and expect them. We tried a morning of purely common word puzzles a little while back to see the difference and took some hard feedback for having eliminated so many words from the possible list. Our dictionary is all-inclusive and our only rule is that to be in our dictionary… the word must be a real English word.
Let us know what you think!
