Words With Friends “Love Letters”: Connecting Through Words Brings a Family Together
Since 2009, millions of players connect and compete each day through word-play in Words With Friends. In celebration of the game’s five year anniversary, we’re sharing a few of our most inspiring stories of how players have connected with their family, friends and even random opponents in their own words. From strengthening existing relationships to fostering new friendships and even romances, their stories spell out how a passion for wordy competition means so much more than the tiles on the game board. The connections made through Words With Friends are the reason the game has reached this meaningful five year milestone. We hope you’re as inspired by the anniversary “love letters” from our loyal players as much as we are!
Dear Words With Friends,
Words With Friends has made such a positive impact on my life! My relationship has always been challenging with my mother. She worked very hard as I grew up and had two children to raise so family time together just wasn’t the norm. As I grew older, our communication became strained and distant.
It wasn’t until just a year ago that our relationship began to change because of Words With Friends. My mother learned about Words With Friends by reading about it being the highest rated word game app in a magazine and instantly became a whiz at it – she always has 15 games simultaneously going on. I began to play with her and immediately it gave us an opportunity to break the ice and have a relationship built on friendly competition.
I can easily say that our relationship has been better today than it has in my entire life. We’ve always been better communicators through the phone or text messages than in person and Words With Friends enables us to cheer each other on and congratulate each other on great word plays. The space between us feels more relaxed and light hearted because we connect over Words With Friends.
Thank you for creating a game that I can share with my mother. The best part is that now she’s even playing with all of her grandkids, teaching them vocabulary while connecting with them as well. Thank you Words With Friends!
Happy 5th Anniversary!
