Intramural Words with Friends Tournament

Sign up to take part in our Intramural Words with Friends Virtual Tournament! If you would like to participate, please send your Words with Friends username to by 11:59 p.m. (CT) this Friday, April 3, to get your name added to the bracket. The bracket will be sent out to all participants by 9 a.m. on Monday, April 6.


  1. Play one game with your opponent. You have one day (24 hours) to complete your game.
  2. The winner is responsible for reporting scores, though certainly, either party may report. Scores must be reported by the deadline or you will be eliminated from the tourney. If slow play is an issue, contact Haley Jung at If there is no play for 24 hours, provide a screenshot and you may claim the win. Do it prior to deadline. If neither player contacts, both are eliminated. A player who is ahead when the game is delayed, and at the time of deadline, cannot report scores to their win. We need to hear from players with delayed play to make a ruling. It is not guaranteed the player who is ahead advances. We need to know what the delay was to decide the fairest outcome. If you are ahead and do not contact but your opponent does, chances are they will advance. FINAL WORD: Communicate with if there are issues.
  3. You may play the next round as soon as you know your next opponent. Intramurals will update the bracket and send it out to all participants as soon as scores are received.
  4. No outside help with your game playing is allowed, play timely, and communicate with your opponent. Reach out to if you need assistance.
  5. CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH: The winner is to provide a screenshot of the final game.
