March Monthly Tournament Champion

By Debbyoc

Congratulations to Xiong88 for being our March Monthly Tournament Champion! Based on the scores of the three games played with Danny Gluva, they were intense close games. Well done to both of you! Here is info about Derrick.

Hi, I am Derrick (Xiong88) from the sunny island of Singapore. Currently, I am working as a stock-broker in a local trading company, but I am not the “Wolf of Wall Street”! Besides serving a pool of clients, I also do high probability short-term trading on my own account.
I was introduced to my first word game(Scrabble) by my uncle when I was a teenager. However, it was James (BumbleB79), my real life buddy, who introduced me to this fantastic Words with Friends app about 3 years ago. Through hundreds of games with him, I have learnt strategies of word placement and tile selections. My other interests include badminton and table-tennis which I play on a weekly basis.
Admittedly, the final against Danny was very close and intense but I was very lucky to get most of the premium tiles in the TB match to crack a tough nut like him!
Last but not least, I would like to express my gratitude to the admins for their time and effort in maintaining this website for the benefit of many word game enthusiasts around the world.

February Daily Winners

By Debbyoc

Congratulations to our February Daily Winners. We had a tie for players who played 25 or more games: JND65 with a 76% win ratio over 26 games and

m A R T y 2 with a 75% win ratio over 25 games. Our 20 game winner was edr12345 with a win ratio of 70%.

Congrats to you all.

It has been brought to my attention that edr12345 had actually entered into a 21rst game and had not reported the results. Therefore, edr12345 is disqualified from being our 20 game winner. I apologize for this error. We actually have a three way tie for the 20 game winner with a 65% win ratio. Congratulations to CCThomo, JonathanMKaye and Mgp41896,

Thank you all for participating on our site.

February Monthly Tournament

By Debbyoc

Congratulations to gamma112602 for winning our February Monthly Tournament. Well done! Bio and Screenshots to follow.

Howdy, my name is Sylvia and proud to say that I’m a retired school teacher from the great state of Texas. I’ve been married to my husband Bernie for 35 years. We have two sons and one daughter. We’ve also been blessed with 3 granddaughters and a grandson. Our oldest son is currently in Afghanistan and is due home in 36 days after an 18 month deployment.
>
> My user name gamma112602 came from becoming a grandmother for the first time on 11/26/02 and our oldest granddaughter calling me “gamma.”  I’ve been playing WWF for fun with family and friends for about 4 years.  I just recently started playing in this tournament after my daughter introduced me to this site. I still prefer the occasional board game of Scrabble with the family. I also enjoy playing Scramble With Friends, probably my favorite.
>
> The finals against steveswei were pretty intense. In game 2 I got a break in the end with WAILING which took us to the tiebreaker game.
>
> Thanks to admin for providing this tournament and the time and effort spent.

Use of Outside Help is not allowed

By Debbyoc

Just a reminder that the use of outside help in our tournaments is NOT allowed. We are starting to once again get a number of complaints about players in our tournaments. If you suspect a player of using outside help please send us an email, admin@wordswithfriends.net, so that we may have our Independent Review Board examine the information. Please send screenshots as well as explanations as to why you feel your opponent might have been using outside help. Admittedly, it is difficult to prove and we do not take it lightly when we have to ban a player from our site.

Rule 1 states:

  1. OUTSIDE HELP – No outside help for words, such as word lists, word unscramblers, or dictionaries. It’s just you and the WWF application. You may, however, refer to the letter distribution (see sidebar)

If you are using outside help to play, then please discontinue playing in our tournaments! We want our players to be using their brains and not having to worry about whether they are playing against a computer. We appreciate your consideration in keeping our site an enjoyable one for all.

January Monthly Tournament Winner

By Debbyoc

Congratulations to BumbleB79 for winning our January Monthly Tournament. Here is the long awaited bio from James. Screenshots to follow.

Hi, I am James from Singapore. Some of you may wonder why I chose my game ID to be BumbleB79. I got the idea from Transformers. There is this yellow autobot named Bumblebee who is one of Optimus Prime’s most trusted lieutenants. He’s not the most powerful but he makes up for his weakness in strength with his bottomless well of luck, determination and bravery and that is someone whom I aspire to be. Of course, I had to thank him for blessing me with great luck to fend off the challenges I faced en route to victory.
Last but not least, I thank the admins for this wonderful website and all my regulars such as Xiong88 and muteone who provide me with unlimited opportunities to sharpen my skills in this game and entertain me with their amazing bingos!
P.S. I have attached a picture of myself. To all my past, present and future opponents, I may appear to be small but I am not afraid of you! LOL just joking!
