    Error: unable to make move ????


    I am in mid game and trying to make a 7 letter word "reading". The error message keeps coming up. No matter what I do or try I cannot place the word "reading". It is my turn. I'm placing it at the end of the word "ax" thus making "axe" and "reading". Any
    help would be appreciated.

    :)

    I have the same issue, just noticed it today, haven't played in several days. I use a Wacom pen 99.9% of the time, but testing with a mouse yields same issue. Have discovered a touch of the scroll wheel and game will function for a few more tile selections.

    Just pick the tiles with your fingertips, that has solved the problem for me. With the pen the game locks up. And it did for me well before the Jan 14 firmware/windows update.

    Quick question- did this by chance start happening on or after January 14th?

    Sadly, no, recalibrating my screen and touch inputs didn't help. I've cleaned the screen and checked for further updates, but I'm up to date on all drivers other Windows updates. I really can't think of anything else to try since I've already tried uninstalling
    and reinstalling the game. My sister who has an identical tablet is having no issues with it and the fact that I can do everything but make more moves has me stumped.

    This may be related to a recent touchscreen issue reported with the Surface. Have you tried cleaning the screen and then recalibrating it? Apparently the touch surface needs to be recalibrated every so often and especially in touch-intensive environments
    like games, any sort of calibration issue can make the game unplayable.

    Here's more about it if you're curious:

    Let me know if that doesn't work and we'll explore more options. :)
