    I am dreadful at this. Anagrams and me have never mixed.

    Word of warning: do NOT play Gl3n. DO NOT.

    He is the Terminator.

    I'm rather poor at this as well, just as well I couldn't get Glen's invite to work for some reason!

    Sorry Kitten, I think my net died, but it said you quit and then left me against the AI... then about 5 minutes later, I DCd :s

    Yeah this was good fun earlier, shame I got knocked out before I had a turn first time around... ;)

    I was on fire against Convercide at one point though, 3 full anagrams in about 4 turns!

    For 400pts it really is a smashing lark :)

    Accepted your FR, I was Dark Souls-ing it up tonight though sorry. I'm happy for a few games tomorrow if you're about?

    Glen gets the anagram 98% of the time, it's terrifying.

    Great game for 400pts, absolutely wonderful. So well made, presented and thought-out. Only issue thusfar is the bug that crashes you when you input a word, seemingly when it's:

    A) late, very close to the time expiry
    B) and you are spectating, rather than fighting, a battle.

    So far the SP is just like playing online. "Dwayne" has already hit me with "cocks" and "anal". :)

    Saluting the price point too. Great value for 400 points.

    By the way, Gl3n gets the anagram EVERY time.

    EVERY time.

    I was going to say this game makes me feel stupid, but it's actually Gl3n.

    I really enjoyed it last night, despite getting my ass handed to me. And the one time I was doing well, the bloody thing crashed. Still for 400 points it's a complete bargain. And the single player is also good fun.

    Managed to get a few games last night and this morning. 2 player seems to be fine, but the one 4 player game I had crashed mid-game.

    I was solving the anagram whilst 2 other players were facing off and it just hung until I quit out. I think a few others have seen the same problem.

    Anyone is welcome to add me - WeylandxYutani. Is creating a party the easiest way to sort a 4 player friend game?

    I think we have found it hangs only when it isn't your turn and you are having a go at the anagram yourself.

    had a decent go at the single player last night, and played through the first few levels of both domination and challenge. Malik & Damian are the hardest characters I've unlocked so far, but I generally haven't had too much trouble.

    My word IQ seems to be hovering around 170-180 most of the time, interested to know how that compares to you all?

    It compares by making be look and feel thick, as mine ia about.

    I've only played multiplayer however, which gets so tense it just causes panic and you can't find any words :D

    So is the suggestion, just not to attempt it to avoid the crash?


    I'm currently floating at just below 160 on my word IQ. Lord knows how that 200 IQ achievement is possible. I've completed the Domination mode on iPhone and i topped out at 169,

    Well it happens very rarely, I had it once in about 2 hours of game.

    Hopefully it'll be fixed!

    My word IQ is 180, shamefully my highest scoring word (I've not played it much because of the footie last night) was Ibex.

    A word I only ever use in Scrabble! At least until now.

    Vexation was my best one last night, nabbing the 20 point achievement in the process.

    I'm a fairly decent scrabble player, and that certainly helps with the anagrams, particularly as -ING and -TION words seem to appear more often than you'd expect.

    I totally got the hang of this after a while yesterday, bar the odd forgetting-which-buttons do which moment still, and sometimes I have a brain fart and can't make ANY words. Fumble fumble

    Highlight for me was when I beat Glen with "At" - WIN!

    RedSparrows, I was totally going to beat you in that round and all :)

    Fired the trial up for a quick go last night at about half-midnight before bed. Ten minutes later I bought the full version. And at 3am I finally made it upstairs. It's somewhat addictive. :)

    I see some weekend fun of this happening!

    Sorry I left you all last night, router died and by the time it was back up I was in bed watching Battlestar Galactica.

    Feel free to hit me up for multiplayer if anyone's short a person. Although be warned that I'm on call until Monday so may have to leave and answer the phone at a second's notice. Not rage-quitting! Honest! No no no. :)

    How many points does 'geek' score you? :p

    Well up for some more of this later tonight - more than happy to accept invites from anyone (looking at the leaderboards last night there seems an awful lot of familiar names from EG on there! Simplicitly somehow was in 50th and 51st place though. How bizarre!)

    I use the chatpad and a number of times last night I found that after spelling a word the enter key wouldn't work, leaving me hammering the button while shouting "oh shit shit shit shit!"

    Seems my brain won't just let me hit Y, but a couple of times it meant I hadn't submitted a word by time up. Fucking annoying.

    saw you playing Blerk, and almost invited you into a game, but I was in 'go to bed after I've finished this game' mode.

    7 or 8 games later...

    Does the chatpad work for this?! Nice inclusion if so, and it explains Lexx's fast fingers somewhat.

    Also, I noticed that you can shuffle the letters several times to see if it makes a word 'jump out at you' if you're struggling by hitting RB (or was it LB, one of the 2). Very handy if you get brain-freezes :)

    Time to plug in spare USB keyboard.

    Although the fact I'm a touch typist probably won't help making words in the first place.

    Thanks for the mention of that DDevil. I will have a rake and dig out my chatpad from in amongst all the battery charging & MS headset gubbins in the drawer under the 360 tonight.

    I'll hopefully get a chance to download this from my queue and give it a shot tonight/over the weekend.
