    All letters or 10 days of inactivity from a player.

    It used to be 21 days, now it's 14. I guess it went down to 10 in the past couple of days. I know this because I was the one that took forever. :eek:

    Maybe I'm a special case. I played my brother, he didn't respond for 13 days and it auto-resigned. It's still on my screen. I wish I had my other 20+ days to show you. My family is a pro at this game. My dad and mom are ridiculous. All they do is stay home and play it. Even at work, too! He's airport police and she's a nurse!! She ignores my nieces and nephew until she puts her move in. They live together, and not talk to each since they're so wrapped up in their games. We have family competitions and bets. It's ridiculous. I'm glad I fell out the hype.

    I think it's 10 days for random users and 14 for friends.

    Thanks for the responses. The game is really fun, but I really didn't get how you were supposed to play it until now. At first I thought the game was supposed to be a one-time thing, much like a real board game. So for the first few games I was sitting next to my iPad like an idiot waiting for the other guy. I now realize that people make a move if they want to in times they can. It's set up almost like a delayed game where it can take days to finish. It seems that you either have to finish the game, resign when it's your turn, or let the game time out after many days. Which is sort of a strange system.

    Anyway, I found awebsite where a guy says that it never timed out for him even after 5 days lol. But it seems like it times out after a random number of days.

    Nice to know your parents are in charge of people's safety and well being, but WWF is more important. Sweet info, kudos to them for being hard workers.

    Wordfeud is so much better IMO, not so cluttered!

    But it's only on iPhone...my family plays Words with Friends on iPad. And I'm pretty sure Words with Friends has a much bigger audience, especially after Alec Baldwin. :D
