    Scrabble game. Can play with a friend by request very easily. Works great and you can chat with your friend while playing.
    Great game.

    Don't know for sure. Never completed a game on Word Feud. From what i remember of Word Feud, this game looks a lot "cleaner".

    Wordfued looks pretty "clean" too, imo.

    I can't stand the dictionary on Wordfeud. It has repeatedly accepted non-English words and acronyms that would NEVER be accepted in a real Scrabble game.

    Oh WOW. I had to join this forum just so I could correct you. You could not be MORE WRONG.

    Wordfeud uses the TWL. Do you know what that stands for? It stands for "Tournament Word List". This is the list of acceptable plays that the National Scrabble Association uses in their TOURNAMENT games. It is the MOST COMPREHENSIVE Scrabble word list there is. You may be familiar with OSPD version 4. That's the Official Scrabble Player's Dictionary, 4th revision, which you can buy in stores. This is the TWL except with all the naughty words taken out (like b*tch and n*gger). What are you confused about? Za? Qi? Ki? Guess when those showed up? In the OSPD4.

    Words with Friends uses the ENABLE ("Enhanced North American Benchmark Lexicon") word list, the creators of which claim is superior to the TWL but when I searched Google I could find no independent party or study to support this claim.

    Wordsmith uses YAWL, which is the "Yet Another Word List" word list.

    When it comes to a pure scrabble game, no game out of these three provides a more authentic experience. The only thing that's different is the bonus tile placement and number of players.

    Educate yourself next time before you bash something you don't understand.
