How do I report complaints, give suggestions or pay compliments, if I have any?
We love compliments, but we also want to hear from you if you have issues and other feedback. We have enabled the red Feedback tab on the games site and will review it regularly to share with our business, technical and marketing teams. The red Feedback tab will surface a short survey with a few open-ended responses where you can share any feedback with us. This survey is 100% voluntary and is not a requirement to play our games. You may also leave constructive comments here on the Games Forum and call or email our customer service at 1 (888) 687-2277 and firstname.lastname@example.org.
Scrolling and Navigation in Mobile:
We’re hearing from mobile users that they don’t like scrolling to find their favorite game. There’s a handy menu that links you to game category pages. The menu shows on mobile phones and in portrait (tall) mode on tablets. Just open the carat next to ALL at the top of the page to expand the menu, then scroll a bit to find the game category page you want.
You can also zero in on a specific game faster by using the white search box which is below ALL. Just start typing the first few letters of the game you’re looking for and a list will appear to choose from (e.g., type SOL and a list of Solitaire games appears).
If you need to report a technical issues, please include your device type and browser to help us isolate and resolve issues faster. Please be patient as we work through some known technical issues (e.g., IE browser is not loading). (Click here...)
