Thanks for playing our game!!

WordPop! and many word games follow the Scrabble rules of acceptable words. Proper nouns such as names, places, or words that start with a capitalization are not accepted. Zion and American are perfect examples. Most word games follow these rules because there are too many names and places to be found; we would never find them all. This is also the reason we do not accept abbreviations or acronyms.

One idea that the team has proposed is an index of all the words we do accept, that way you can check to see if the word exists before you spent the time manipulating the game board to make it.

On a side note, we are looking for input on a new game we are creating for the iPhone. If you are interested, please email me tsherman(at)smartboxdesign.com. Replace the (at) with an @ when you send the email.

Best regards,

Todd

I then looked it up in dictionary It was correct. There have been smaller words also not reconized such as Zion.

We finally got a chance, while testing, to send each other our best or sometimes funny words.
