I'm relishing 8/21/2023, Noon, the only likely day and time I'll ever be at the top, lol, so yippee!! rocks innocent

We changed the domain name and that is why some of you are experiencing the problems with scores. We are very sorry for that, but we also promise that this is the final change. faceplant

This was what I came to when I clicked on my bookmarked tab. The site had changed from play123.in, to play123.com, to playground123.com, which is what I had bookmarked and been playing on. So today I put the address in as play123.com; it accepted but MADE me do the cookie thing again which put me back to starting all over again! Apparently this site is continually changing owners or website name registration, and I don't like it making me start all over again! angry

I am using the same lap top. Have changed nothing. Played this yesterday and today I am back to one. P F T ! 123

@Cayote Plus, try again, I just now tried to do the game on my PC; I was reduced to #1 here, too, but when I played; believe it or not, I actually couldn't remember the right word on my Fire game, untill I hit on three letters, then I remembered and confidently put in the right word, which did put me back into about where I've been lately: usually between 7 and 11 rank. So I guess they fixed it on this end to use my PC; I will NOT, however, play any Play123 games on my #10 Fire HD anymore.

Eva...I am in the same position as you!. I was on 82 points...and now am back to 1....Hopeless!

I'm so angry with the people who put this game here. I thought they would fix this problem of RESETTING YOUR GAME PLAY WHEN YOU SIGN IN ON ANOTHER MACHINE, I.E.,SO, SINCE IT HAS BEEN A WHILE SINCE I WAS RESET, I TRIED TO PLAY ON MY MY FIRE TABLET AGAIN TODAY AND ! LOST MY PLACE AND AM BACK TO 1! blush sick thumbdown and I was signed in correctly with correct password. PLEASE FIX THIS AND LET US KNOW YOU HAVE DONE SO! THANK YOU!!!

j'aime ce jeu. wink

Has anyone ever guessed the word on the first try? I'm just curious!! I got it on the second try once, but that's it!

Yes, it reset my score a few months ago. I was on 337 then. I have played on a few game sites, Royal Games, Arkadium, Game Desire. to name a few....but if you want a site that really screws up you can't beat Play123!

Looks like it reset the scores! I feel terrible for people who had been playing for a long time! Not even an apology !

To#$!!% with this game. I DID NOT START OVER!!! I will not play again. byeee


I'm annoyed that you started my game over. I suppose because I played this on my Fire Tablet a few days ago. I thought the Fire Tablet sign-on would keep my scores going from here, but you started it OVER! Now today you started me over here and kept my score as what it was yesterday. no Therefore I WILL NOT sign on to this site anywhere else! Your loss.

you are right littlesparrow2, it is like master mind and i have loved that game for years!!!

Pretty addictive this game faceplant ..I have solved it on line two...but no reward for doing that no

This game works on same principle than Master Mind ! Good game ! What a pity having to wait for next day to play again sad

I have been playing this game for weeks now. According to the scoreboard I have only scored 2. My scores never seem to add up. What is wrong with this scoring system?

I love it that there is just 1 word each day

This really is a great game - but there's no reward for solving it in fewer guesses! Your first word is clearly a pure guess - but after that a nice mixture of 'guessing' and strategy come into play. Therefore 1 point whether you get the answer in 6 goes or 1 spoils it. The developers to not understand gaming or the mentality of gamers. At any point skill or strategy enter into play in any game then that must be rewarded!!

If you clear your cookies down, you start again from zero on your scoring run. It isn't worth leaving the cookies on just to score a high run.

i have stayed for quite awhile after guessing right on try #3 and i still am at 1 point, oh well. guess i will just have to play for the fun of it.
