• The tile distribution is weird. There are as many i's (8) as e's. This should not be the case. In standard English usage, the ratio of usage of e:i is 11:7, not 1:1 as in Lexulous. Please change this!


  • If you get to many i's just swap them., 9 in real scrabble 12 e

    this is a problem that has been around for years.......
    i have come to know a few words that use 2 or even 3 I's (like Insipid) in order to get rid of them. They are almost never the high scoring words but are better than swapping them and getting 0 points for the trouble.


  • @jrp32 Apologies for the inconvenience caused. The tile distribution is randomly chosen. But we will look into this.


  • @sakamvari saying the tile distribution is "randomly chosen" makes it seem as if you have not understood the original complaint. The letters that each player receives during the game may be random, but that isn't what the complaint is about. It's the actual number of letters in the basket (or the bag, or the pot, or whatever you call it: where all the letters come from). Proportionally it seems as if the game always has too many I's. (apologies if I have misunderstood the complaint myself!)


  • @thatguythere202 @jrp32 if you feel like too many i's learn more i words or swap ...so many i words but swapping is easier i guess.

    You did not misunderstand what was said.
