I hope it's changing for the better this time. I used to love Spellbound. Hate the new one.  I want to be able to twist or jumble the letters. Also new crossword puzzles are needed.

LOL the suggestion for stopping all of the comments on this thread didn't work for me. I did as instructed and still get many a day. At least you guys at AARP know your Seniors love to play games that don't cost money. 

Thank you for that at least.

I liked the Egg Blast game, but it was always over way too soon even if you got through the levels. I think two or three levels was all it gave before it made you start over. Could have been errors with the creators coding, many of these games are used by AARP, not made and maintained by them.

I have noticed this in other games as well. Scores in the millions and millions! Who can do that? Someone with programming to play the game, and not a person. 

I also believe these games are NOT exclusive to AARP, as some of the organic high scores can't be by seniors, lol. That's just my take on it however.

The last time you improved the games, I lost my two favorite games, and several of the others changed for the worse, not the better.  This time I see you will again "expire" both my current favorites, Spellbound and FlipOut.  Guess I won't be spending much time here next month, which is a shame because I feel like your games help me stay at least a little bit sharper than I would otherwise, at 84 years. And when I play the games, I also tend to read news, articles, and discussions.

I agree on the post about pyramid solitaire, scoring sucks also discard pile freezes. I REPORTED THAT AND YOUR SUPPORT SAID IT WAS MY PROBLEM

I understand that if I were to deal the cards at home for Pyramid I wouldn't win all the games, but to have the majority of the Pyramid games be "Unfinishable" is frustrating. I won't even get into the wacky way games are scored - others have already commented on that aspect.

 

As for high scores, I am referring to Classic and Klondike Solitaire games, not games where you can place a wager. There are a couple of players that have to be playing via a downloaded program, which enables them to set a score just higher, or rediculously higher, than what can reasonably be achieved. I doubt there is a way to stop them from doing it so I ingnore what they've supposedly scored and strive to beat the next best honest player, or my personal best.

In my experience your "improvements" have ruined the games.  I stopped playing all but one game.  That game is slated for "improvement".  I suspect it will not be worth playing when it comes back.  Who decides on these improvements?
