Fun game, major app flaws

The game is addicting. I love it. There are several bugs, and it takes a long time to load. Also, it was fine when it had 5 second adds, but these 30 second ones after every single game make me want to never play again.
To the creators/operators: your game is too difficult to play in the sense that you don’t really get to earn a lot of coins with most options. I feel a little scammed since I have to buy more coins to play. Many platforms I want to play, I end up not playing because I won’t earn coins even if I win. You should earn coins every match you win, and it should be significantly more than how many you put in to play, if you win that match. Winning bonus help things doesn’t cut it.
I love the game, but I hate how hard it is to earn coins, and I hate that I don’t get to enjoy many different playing options for the sole purpose that I won’t be able to play more.
The game itself is 5 Stars.
The point system is 1 Star.
The app operation is 2 Stars.
That’s why it’s an overall 3 star rating.
Please add more ways to earn coins and more coins for when you win. It’s kind of ridiculous and ruins it the way you have it now. And your 30 second adds are too long. I desperately want to close out the app every time I get a 30-second add vs the 2 5-second adds.
Please improve these functions. It’s so much fun, but super frustrating to navigate and enjoy.

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.

Too many issues to enjoy the game

Scattergories is my favorite board game. I was really happy to see the app. But there are so many issues that it just makes it frustrating and not worth it to play.

The keyboard is glitchy and difficult to type on. I spend too much of my game time trying to go back and put in a letter that it didn’t record. Then many times the game ends and it records a different answer than what I typed. Also, I was playing with my sister and I knew she finished the round, as she sent me a text telling me we picked several of the same answers. I kept going back to the game to view results and play the next one and it still said it was her turn. I closed out completely and went back in, still her turn. Finally after 2 hours it alerted me that she had played.

If this app didn’t have so many issues I would definitely pay for the no ad version. You guys are missing out on ad revenue and paid customers because of these same issues that, per the other reviews, have been going on a long time.
