The remove ads portion doesn’t work

Great game to pick up briefly or really chow down

I’ve been playing for over six months. It’s been continually improving too! Everything you’d want in a code word game. I
decided to leave a review for the customer service I received, my game had a rare glitch that no one else was having, within a day
my account was back and I didn’t lose the games

Very addicting

I love this game but I came write a review to point out a few things that would improve it.
1. Please consider using a wider variety of words. For some reason it seems the same words are used over and over.
2. Each time a play is successful you have the forced option to “post” it on social media o

'Fun but tough'

'Great way to stay connected to friends and family. Better when you’re playing with people who have similar background and/or
education as you.'

'Absolutely amazing! Suggestion to improve'

'1) add a zero and infinity for advanced play. \n2) add this to android if you can so we can get more plays\n3) the app seems to
really lag out my iphone 10 if I play for more than 15 minutes. No other apps cause this problem\n4) I rarely see intentional
cheating, but if this game gets really popula

'Near clone of Codenames'

'I’ve gotten most of my close friends and family members hooked on this app. There is definitely a learning curve and a need to
explain (and even send screenshots of) the official Codenames rules to every player before the games are fair and competitive.
First criticism - the ability to go beyond

'Great app! A few suggestions'

'This is an amazing app. Code Names the board game is one of my favorite new games and this app does a great job bringing it to
the app scene! \n\nHere are my two suggestions: \n\nOnce you’ve started a game you can’t end it unless you finish, which can
be kind of annoying if, at the end of the p

'Love the Quick Play'

'I wish people would play normal games quicker, but that’s part of the appeal - you can play at your own pace! The Quick Play is
a nice non-commital way to get your Code Names fix, but the back button doesn’t work properly when looking at the game history.
It kicks you back out to the main Quick

'A Quarantine Lifesaver'

'This app is singlehandedly getting me through my Quarantine. I can’t get enough of it. Only suggestion is to find a way to pick
up the pace of gameplay - some people sit on games for days, and they don’t delete for 7 days. If someone doesn’t play for 24
hours, there should be an option for an

'Great game'

'Great game! Needs to be a bit more user friendly between games and setting them up. Otherwise, the only problem is that more
people aren’t playing.'

'Fun game'

'This is the fun game and they did A good job for the most part. The only thing is there is no way to end a game when players you
don’t know stop playing. The games show up as active games even though no ones playing anymore.'

'So fun'

'CodeWords= best app for games with friends but also I like flying solo games with random other players! Those are more
challenging since you don’t have shared history but that makes it all the more interesting.\nQuick plays are nice too although
there you’ve also sometimes got people who are un

'Great fun with family and friends!'

'For those who like CodeNames, this is the best mobile version of that game. You can play with family and friends that live far
away or you can all play together while sitting in the same room! You can also play games with total strangers. The daily guesser
is always fun and you get to see how you d

'Pretty perfect ❤️'

'I love this app. It’s simple to use and does a great job explaining the game play. My only complaint is the 3 clue cap. Maybe
I’m missing the option to allow more than 3 and if so, someone please educate me! I’d also love an option to block players due
to people abusing the openness of the ga

'Really fun game'

'You can play this really fun game 2 min a day and be satisfied. It’s addictive but doesn’t take over your life. And it’s
great for friends trying to keep in touch over long distances.'

'Totally recommend!!!'

'My friends and I have become addicted to this app. We usually have four or five games going at the same time. It’s so much fun
to keep me connected with good friends that live far away. Love hearing the recognizable ding telling me that it’s my turn.
Great game to stretch your brain and think o

'game changer for us!'

'Codenames has been a sacred addition to our game nights. We’ve literally played several thousand hours in person, on tabletop
simulator, on a web app. It’s the perfect game. This is sick. This helps us stay connected when we can’t make physical
meetups. Thank you! Going to tell every single f

'Awesome game to play with friends!'

'I love the board game Code Words, so I was excited to learn about this new app version. I have 6 games going right now with
various friends and family members and it’s a blast! It’s fun to be both the setter and the guesser (and it helps to be paired
with someone that knows you well). I’m def

Good, but needs refinement

I love that this game is an app, but the current implementation has the absolute worst battery drain of any app I’ve used. As a
comparison, 2 hours of CodeWords used 2.5 times the battery of 3 hours of YouTube! No text-based game should ever even come close
to the strain of video streaming!

I can’t log back in

I was playing a game and after we finished we started another, but when I went back to the home screen, it logged me out and
wouldn’t let me play. I suggest not even needing to log in to anything in order to play

Needs a privacy/delete game option

Love the game but don’t like not having the option to delete games. Just wanted to play with my group of friends that I added
not random people.

Great game until iOS 13

Fun game with great online multiplayer options, however the bus with iOS 13 lock up, game chat that’s illegible in dark mode,
and odd UI crashes when switching between chat, game play, and home with multiple games open are frustrating and disincentivizing.
