Scrabble opponents

★★★★ Novice

Can you please explain to me why I cannot invite other specific scrabble players to play?  I am only offered random players, or a very very select few Facebook “friends”?

Hello @Player_9edwkmon!

 

I hope you don't mind, but I moved your thread from the Pogo area to the Scrabble area.

 

In addition to linking Facebook, if you have it attached to your EA Account, you can also add your Origin friends to it. It's covered only briefly in the first article below. The second article covers how to add friends to your Origin account.

Please let me know if you have any questions!

Hello @Player_9edwkmon,

 

Is this for Scrabble on Pogo, Scrabble Sprint on Pogo, or Scrabble on Facebook/mobile?

It is for Scrabble, found and downloaded as an ap on an iPhone.  It says "challenge opponents on Facebook and more..."  and Find an instant opponent …" 

 

It appears that opponents are limited to only those who use Facebook and that have already downloaded the ap and shared their Facebook friends.  I have friends that would use the ap, except for the Facebook restriction.

My friend and I have a similar problem. We have an EA account and downloaded the Srabble app, but we are unable to choose an opponent - let alone each other. 

 

We we are not the only ones - there were 7 others who were having. Similar problrm

I am stumped.  This classic game has been monopolized by EA (and Facebook) so as to make it inaccessible to the open market.   Words with Friends is a distasteful, cheaters platform yet thrives because it is accessible; as a word game it pales to the original Scrabble, IMHO. Trump-nomics at play, apparently.  If EA owns the rights, they are the game losers.  Woeful.

I play Scrabble on my iPad and want to add new friends. I have tried following your directions to add friends by signing in on Origin.com. My current friends show up under “Friends” on the menu bar, but there is no “Add a friend” option. Is there another step I am missing?

Hey there, @bethadams56.

 

Thanks for your question, and I apologize for any confusion. While Friends cannot be added via Origin.com the website, you can download the Origin client from that website, and you can add or remove friends from the Origin client itself. I hope that helps!
