INFOGRAPHIC: Love Makes Words With Friends Players Do Strange Things

What better way to say, “Happy Valentine’s Day,” to your significant other than to drop a 90-point bomb of a word on them while playing Words with Friends? That was one of the findings of a Valentine’s Day poll by game developer Zynga.

More than 6,000 Words with Friends players participated in Zynga’s second annual With Friends Valentine’s Day poll, and its findings included:

  • 30 percent of players have used the chat feature to flirt with their opponents.
  • Nearly one-quarter try to play higher-scoring words against opponents they are attracted to.
  • More than one-half are more attracted to opponents with strong vocabularies.
  • 26 percent of married players play against their spouses.
  • Nearly one-quarter are more competitive when playing against someone they have feelings for.
