I suggest you ...

Get rid of the obnoxious video ads

It is obnoxious that you put video ads in that I can't immediately kill. Instead I must shut down the whole window and start over. How rude of you

        So annoying that I can no longer play the game. I pay to remove ads and they are now appearing every few minutes, blocking the game. So f'ing annoying!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        There is a video ad behind an ad... It blocks my "play" button and shuts off my sound. I tried shutting down but it didn't go away. What can I do? I'm about ready to give up the game entirely

        Jessie Rosenberg, I love playing scrabble but a lot of the commercials are too long like those fake actresses doing the whitening strips, toothpaste: just so you understand, I'll never buy that particular product because ad Is so
        Fake. I turn phone over until ad is over!

        I love scrabble, but those kids game ads come on every minute, and they can't be beeped off instantly. Why do we have to have such a good game screwed up so bad?

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I never buy or watch anything that is advertised and spoils my scrabble game. So there!

        I used to love playing against the computer , but since the last update every time you play a word you. Get a screen of advertising, please someone fix this

      • LJLJ commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        How can I fix -- when I put in letters the display gets huge and it locks up every time. Using I pad

        I use an ad blocker. I really don't mind the ads, but they slow things down so much that it takes 2x to 3x as long to do anything. If you could get advertisers who just gie you a simple popup and link that would be fine. Everybody's gotta make a buck, I understand that.

        It looks like they got rid of the apps trending thing that was covering the buttons. The you have a virus lies Hasbro and EA are effectively perpetrating are best dealt with by having two browsers with no default set and hitting cancel when these hazardous ads come up.

        Do we all have to go out with a campaign and boycott surf to make them stop this? Unilever s the company that has placed the ad

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        How do we stop Unilever to have their Surf pop up that you cant get rid of? Do we all write to Unilever and complain?

        Have been playing free Words with Friends for years but I can't get rid if the Surf video in the middle of a game with an American friend. I've switched the power on, double clicked home button etc but it still comes back and prevents my word sending. Help please

        If they will not remove apps trending on our scrabble game..which makes it impossible to play..why don't we petition the advertisers that pay Facebook to stop doing their advertising there..we are so busy trying to get rid of that intrusive ad..we can't play..and don't see their ads anyway!

        I'm having more fun chasing the stupid Apps trending icon around on the screen than I am trying to play the Scrabble.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        It's likely that Scrabble will not admit how intrusive this ad hacker really is... 1%? Hardly believe them. What about our security? Will they feel guilty should personal information be lifted that ruins someone's life? I'm more than annoyed. This is highly irresponsible of Hasbro. I still haven't heard back form them regarding my complaint. They should be able to do something for the people who have been hijacked.
