Valentine’s Day Tip: Words With Friends Prowess Increases Your Chance Of A HookupBy: Josh Wolford - February 14, 2012
If you’re a Words With Friends or Scramble With Friends player, you might have already seen a little push by Zynga to get you to play their (already widely popular) games. Beginning a couple of days ago, Zynga began pushing messages to players correlating the lover’s holiday with wordplay – “So and so put a move on you (with words)” and stuff like that.
So the folks behind Words With Friends love Valentine’s Day, and they have just released the results of a love-themed survey of players that reveals some interesting things about the WWF population. Mainly, they are all a bunch of cheaters.
Zynga spent the last few days conducting an in-game survey of players, and the impressive sample size (100,000) revealed that 44% of players flirt with their opponent.
Some more stats about WWF players:
- 24% of players admitted to swapping WWF handles instead of phones numbers. When I think about it, casual wordplay is probably a more effective icebreaker than an awkward phone conversation.
- Apparently, Words With Friends play has a better chance of ending in a hook-up than I would’ve imagined. 38% of players said they would be more willing to get between the sheets if that person was good at the game, and 10% said that playing WWF has led directly to a hook-up.
- 40% of people said that they would actually date someone they met through the game, while 47% of people said that they are currently playing the object of their desire.
35% of players said they let their significant other win from time to time (yeah right) and unsurprisingly, 43% of people said that they cheat in the game.
