Good in Principle But Frustrating

I love the idea of having chutes and ladders set up with a guessing game to accompany it. However, many times I’ve found that there are multiple possible answers to the clues which fit the number of letters required. This makes the game quite frustrating as it has only one possible answer programmed but if you input one and not the other it counts it as wrong even though you are technically correct.
(E.g. the hint is Persian Gulf Emirate, five letters: this could be either Qatar or Dubai, but only one is programmed to be correct. In order to know which they are referring to, you would have to spend coins to find out the first letter, which is not always possible.)
Thus, the idea is cool, but the bugs often make for an unpleasant experience. I may end up deleting this app if there continues to be an excessive number of them.

Some suggestions

I am enjoying the game quite a lot, but there are some things I would like to see improved. The character piece on the board doesn’t appear to be customizable. It would be nice if you could swap out the character and color, and maybe different outfits or skins for them as well. These could be items earned in the game from achievements. Also, I am having trouble getting a game started with my friends. I clicked to invite them to play and it sent them a link to get the game, but it does not actually set up a game with me once they have the game. I don’t see any button to start a game with friends and have only played with random people so far. Please consider adding a friend list and an easy way to start games with friends.

Super Glitchy

Was loving this game better than any other I’ve played in a long time, but since this recent icon change (was there also an update to the program?), the game will not progress past the first question or two, and if you try rebooting your computer, the game is lost altogether. Much as I loved it, I’m about to be forced to delete it. 😢
Also, as someone else said, many questions have easily equal or better answers that fit the same space, clues with answers too obviously close to the word in the clue itself, or questions asking for completely random information that no one could be expected to know. Is it written by fluent English speakers?
