    Things like this are why I kept my laptop on Windows 8 knowing I'd be buying a Surface down the road.

    I wondered if this would happen when they announced "Microsoft Ultimate Word Games" as the next casual title. I think we can guarantee 1000GS and a list similar to Solitaire or Mohjong.

    a brand new single player mode we think you’re really going to love, Daily Challenges, and keyboard support!
    No we don't love the daily challenges. warning

    the type of casual gamer that makes up by far the largest portion of players for games like this (eg my mum!) loves daily challenges. it's just a certain subset of achievement hunter who has forgotten about the concept of 'playing games for enjoyment' that disagrees really.

    that I can live with.

    Thanks for the credit. This game should turn out to be really fun. Wordament is really addictive.

    Thanks for the news tip! toast

    I run Windows 10 so I started the game myself in hopes I can clean it up before mine upgrades to the new version. I don't have any devices that still use Win8 so it'd be a hassle for me to access the 8 version beyond that.

    As far as i can understand the post, the update will void any Win8-achievements, meaning that just like Solitaire Collection or Mahjong, the current game you know will only be playable on Win8 OS. But luckily i have bought an Win8-Tablet for the remaining games for exact this case.

    I'll give it a pass if the daily challenges are the same crap as in Solitaire, those are waaay too time-consuming for what it is.

    To be fair they classified "things you're going to love" and "daily challenges" separately in that list laugh

    Thanks to this thread, it motivated me to finish it before it switched over.

    Alright, so this game came out a few days ago for people in the Inner Circle program. It might be certain members only because I haven't gotten the email yet.

    TA says that only 160 members have the game, so what I said above is probably correct.

    My game just updated to the new version, overwriting Wordament.
    The game doesnt carry over any cheevos to the new version from the old list.
    So not sure how you would get the cheevos off the old list now once it switches over for all.

    The Microsoft Ultimate Word Games switch-over is only for Windows 10 operating systems according to MS, so it sounds like the only way to still receive them after the update goes live for everyone would be to access regular Wordament from a phone/PC still running Windows 8.

    When does this update go live? It still is regular-ass Wordament for me.

    I just received an update and an in-game message (I had the early build) that the game should be available for everyone now.

    Not yet here, either.

    It's also not in the store.
