This situation no longer appears. The word bank is shrunk so that it is very difficult to click on the correct tile on my phone.

Still the case (29.11.20)

"ONE computer, ONE phone, and ONE watch" is not accepted, even though Một cái literally translates to "one".

It's funny cause he IS greedy.

Yeah, why does he need a watch AND a phone?

tham lam

Etymology: Sino-Vietnamese word from 貪婪.

The tiles are positioned in such a way that the words I've already selected cover up the words I need at the end, so I can't finish the sentence. The order appears to be random, and resizing the screen doesn't help. Very frustrating.

Happened again. That's four times out of five.

What type of device are you using? I find that on PC, you can change the order of the tiles after being selected by dragging them, which might help.

Is a mobile phone not the same?

Shouldn't "cellphone" instead of "phone" be accepted?
