So addicting!

This game is fun and exciting! I'm addicted to it. There are a few bugs with it but over all I love it. Some problems I have seen are that they sometimes accept an answer and other times the same answer won't be accepted. You have the option to "dispute" if you don't agree with your results but I haven't seen anything come from disputing. I'm not sure if they actually read them or not. Another problem is that sometimes even when an answer is correct they won't take it. And yes you can dispute it but you still don't get your points. For example: the letter is "C" and the category is "cereal" and my answer was "captain crunch" but it wasn't accepted. We all know captain crunch is a kids cereal but still I didn't get my points. Also I have noticed if I play against my friend, it will say we both won, but when you look at the score, one is clearly higher then the other. And the last problem with this game is that even if I win a round, it costs more to play that round then what I get for winning. This must be a way to try and get people to spend actual money. But like i said, I love this game and it's worth playing.

Developer Response ,

Hi Ktay315! Thank you for this great feedback, which will be shared with the team. We do have a team of researchers resolving disputes, to the tune of thousands of words daily! However, we prioritize disputes with more than one submission, and those for new categories. Also, we can only accept disputes that meet our guidelines, for example: ensure proper spelling (ex. Capn Crunch is the correct spelling so we are unable to accept Captain Crunch), no plurals, can't begin w/articles or adjectives (A, An, The), no short forms, no mature content. As for discrepancies between scores, that will occasionally happen if one person has a points boost active. The points boost impacts the score of the person who is using the boost, in his or her game only. Others won't see that boost applied. Thanks again! -KD

Fun though limited, for the few minutes it lasts

This app could be 50 times better (and more profitable for the developer) if it were better designed. For one thing, the categories repeat endlessly. Cooking shows, professional wrestlers, things in an arcade, things at a circus, video games and Words that rhyme with ‘FINE’ are on a continuous loop (I’ve only been playing for a few days and have already seen each of those categories dozens or hundreds of times), while simple and user-friendly categories from Scattergories the card game and Scattergories the board/writing game are not included at all (play as often as you like, play for a week straight, and you’ll NEVER see: Things that are Round, Things that are Sweet, Things that are Expensive, Things in a School, Things in the Ocean, Fruits and Vegetables, Things in the Kitchen, Things in the Bedroom, Things in the Bathroom, etc).

But the worst and unforgivable flaw is this: THE GAME STOPS LETTING YOU PLAY AFTER A FEW TURNS, and it tells you you’re out of coins! Every other game app I have would let you play all day if you wanted, though it might make you watch ads from time to time. This one just shows you a sad frowning face and says you’re out of coins! I deleted it. Too pointless and frustrating.

Database too small

Scattergories has the potential to be a great app. Unfortunately there are some problems. One is that it rejects answers that are not in any way obscure. I answered “My Brilliant Friend” as an answer to the name of a book category. It was not misspelled, it was not a plural and it did not start with an article. It is a popular novel (popular enough to be made into a Netflix series.) Scattergories rejected this answer several months ago and I disputed it. Tonight I used the same answer primarily to see what would happen. It rejected it again. Even worse, and although Scattergories usually accepts last names only, it has rejected Kelly (as in Gene) as a movie actor, and Domingo (as in Placido) as a famous singer and (the big one) Harrison (as in George ⁉️) as a famous singer. It obviously needs a larger database from which to check answers.

The other thing I don’t like about the app is the extremely limited number of categories. The board game has many more than the app. It would be great to see some new ones from time to time.
