  1. Loved this theme! I’m not sure if it was just my phone, but the grid was too big and I could not see or play the two rightmost columns until I gave up and got the final words revealed (at which point I could scroll over).

    • It shows up like that on my phone too! If you use the light grey scroll bar at the bottom of the word grid and/or the list of words, it should shift to the right!

      Glad you liked the theme!

      • Aha, thank you! (And idk if it was the ANNBANNON / ANNELISTER / BANNED combo plus all the AN words, but this one was the most mind-melting / “that looks like a word, maybe” of the AS word searches yet and I loved it.)
