If you’re a fan of Words With Friends, but get discouraged when it won’t accept some of your favorite words, there’s a new game in town. Christopher “Ludacris” Bridges has partnered with Edwin Benton, CEO and Founder of The C.A.T. Apps to create a new take on the mobile online Scrabble clone: Slang N’ Friendz.
If we’re being completely honest, Words With Friends already has quite a few questionable acceptable words in its database (QA? Really Words With Friends?), but Slang N’ Friendz takes that to the next level by including straight up slang. So turnt, tho, bae, deez, and many other words used in day to day conversation will earn points here.
Slang N’ Friendz differentiates itself by not only pulling its acceptable words from a database that includes slang words you won’t find in most dictionaries, but it will also accept submissions for new words from users. For those not up on the current lingo, definitions will also be included. You’ll also be able to hear Ludacris react to the words that you play.
In a statement, Luda outlined some of his hopes for the game:
In a time when so much of the world is divided, technology has the opportunity to bring us together. Slang N’ Friendz encourages users to connect, be friendly and identify what they have in common through language. It’s also a chance for different generations to learn about each other’s unique forms of communication and find ways to use language to bridge generation gaps.
The app is available for free on both Android and iOS, though ads and in-app purchases are included. Are you going to give Slang N’ Friendz a try?
