Does anyone have this on their phone? Is there a way to turn off the random matches? I downloaded to play against friends not strangers.

Thanks

It doesn't automatically match you with a stranger - only if you request that. You can always enter a friend's info to play against that friend.

I've had 5 people who I don't know request games. I just resign the game because I don't know them.

Did you request games first? You only get put in a random game and then have to resign if you request a game and then are put in a queue.

The only game I requested was for my friend. Now all these other games pop up that someone else requests. Can that be turned off? I guess it's not that big of a deal, but it is kind of annoying. Plus, I don't know how to delete those games or if I can.

I've only had one game come up that was unsolicited but still it was someone I am friends with. If a game comes up with someone you don't know, decline to play it.

I do, but I was just wondering if there's a way to turn that part off.

I was getting games from names I didn't recognize and eventually realized that they were my Facebook friends but under weird usernames. The one creepy guy who kept coming back over and over? My dad.

OMG Ama! That's funny

I don't have FB so I know that's not the case with me. I just received two more games requests and I have no clue who these people are.

Now I have this growing list of games in the "game over" section of people who I don't know.
