Scrabble Trauma!

★★★★ Newbie
I want to play Scrabble app with my mum but she doesn’t have Facebook. I’ve downloaded apps to my iphone and her kindle fire.
I’ve created us both EA accounts. But I can’t search for friends or find her... just getting a blank box with A to Z on right hand side and can’t search.

What’s going on? Please don’t tell me after all that faff I’ve got to download something else? What am I doing wrong!

Hi, 

 

Me and my husband are in exactly the same situation. We don't have facebook, but created EA accounts and it doesn't allow you to type in friends name.

 

Also trying it with facebook account is not an option as we don't have facebook and don't want to open an account just for the game. Is there a solution to this?!

Seemingly not I’m afraid. I can’t find a way around it and I flatly refuse to create a Facebook account for my mum just to play scrabble. It’s pretty ridiculous. If you find an answer please let me know!!!

Apparently you have to download the Origin client and install it on your Mac/PC and then use that to invite EA users. Really, EA should make it clear that playing against other EA users is essentially going to be way too much hassle. Most people won't be bothered with installing an entire application just to connect with a friend. If I knew this going in I wouldn't have paid for the premium version of Scrabble.
