Scramble Words

I have enjoyed the new game "Scramble Words". It took me a couple of games to figure it out. However; It does not keep score accurately. I type in words on my computer, hit enter and it doesn't register. It shows a letter in a word and when I type in my word again, it finally gives me credit. Please fix this. This happens whethe I'm using my laptop or my phone.

Hi @CarolD822657, thanks for your post! Each word you type won't necessarily be one of the hidden words on the board (i.e., the board may only have 6 hidden words but there will be many more words to be made from the 5 letter provided). For each valid word you type, you fill the bonus bar which then reveals clue letters within the hidden words on the board to help you solve them. There's also some Help info under the game Menu that you may find useful. Let me know if this helps. Happy playing!

I would like to request that the Admin of the Word Scramble game (AARPLynne?) ban the user with the ID mp68077955 permanently.  There is no way you are going to have a daily score of 334,850 points.  This is an obvious "gaming the game" and just plain rude to all of us legitimate users.  Thank you for the consideration.

When I don't get all the target words, at the end there is no listing of what all the target words are (those I got are there, but I would like to see those I missed to help in future puzzles.

No, your reply didn't really help. I already knew that there were bonus words that weren't the hidden words. I do type in the hidden words, but the game doesn't give me credit for typing them. Later, when it does show a bonus letter in the hidden word, I retype my word and it fills it in for me. This is very frustrating because I do like the game but wish it would score correctly. I don't see how a player can get 54,000 for a daily high score for this game the way that it records correct words for me. I'm playing on a Mac Book Pro with macOS Mohave, version 10.14.5 Please check into this for me.

I, too, am looking for some help on how to improve my score.  I don't seem to be able to get past about 42,000 points.  Is there a trick to getting extra points before the game auto fills the letters and closes out the round?  I love playing this game, but it is getting frustrating not to be able to improve.
