Scramble With Friends: Tournaments and New Features Launch for the Ultimate Competitive Twist on Words




Your favorite brain-bending word game just got a few power-ups of its own! Get ready to step up and spell ‘em out with the brand new features in Scramble With Friends. Starting today, the new Tournaments feature enables you to compete against opponents of a similar skill to win in-game prizes and Power-Ups when you join a three-round tournament – that is, if you can make it to the final round. It’s the fun, social, fast-paced game you know and love with a new competitive twist.

With the new Tournaments feature, players can satisfy the urge to keep playing while waiting for friends to make their next move. Players can join a Tournament by selecting an unlocked bracket table – once eight players fill the bracket, the tournament begins. Compete to advance through a quarter-final, semi-final, and final bracket rounds for the chance to win in-game prizes and Power-Ups, and as players’ skills evolve, they earn XP to level-up and unlock new brackets with different gameplay and larger prizes.

For players that want a more personal challenge, Scramble With Friends will soon introduce Practice Mode, one of the most requested features our players can’t wait to get their hands on. Practice Mode will give players the option to play in offline mode for the first time, giving them more ways to play whenever and wherever they want. With more than 400,000 board variations, that’s a lot of solo play coming your way!

Ciao Amico! In addition to Tournaments and Practice Mode, Scramble With Friends is excited to offer the game in two new languages on the App Store: Turkish and Italian! As Macau currently holds the highest scoring round on the international leaderboards, Italian and Turkish speaking players now have a shot to make it to the top.

Are you feeling up to the challenge? The game is available for free on the App Store for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch or at and on Google Play.

Sneak Peek at Fall-Inspired Recipes from FarmVille 2 and Food Network’s Marc Murphy to Help ‘No Kid Hungry’


FV2M_RecipePage_hero_hires (3)At Zynga we believe in using farm-to-table, seasonal ingredients to create the freshest, most enjoyable meals, often inspired by the tasty dishes players craft in our FarmVille games. This season we’re proud to team up with Marc Murphy, regular judge on Food Network’s hit show Chopped and Chef + Owner of Benchmarc Restaurants (Landmarc + Ditch Plains) and Benchmarc Events by Marc Murphy, to cook up a “FarmVille to Table” inspired recipe for a good cause: helping to fight child hunger.

Starting this week in FarmVille 2 on Facebook, players can contribute to No Kid Hungry by purchasing special crop packets  to help the fight against child hunger. Marc’s pumpkin risotto with gorgonzola and walnuts recipe, inspired by one of the special crop packets, Great Pumpkin, is chock full of classic fall flavors. The recipe was developed exclusively for Zynga’s FarmVille to Table digital cookbook, a collection of FarmVille inspired recipes for players to cook and enjoy right at home. The complete FarmVille to Table digital cookbook will be available later this year.

Marc Murphy had this to share on the importance of ending childhood hunger. “It’s important to me that kids of all ages have access to healthy food, and families know how to cook delicious meals with fresh ingredients, like the pumpkins that are now available at farmer’s markets and supermarkets across the country. Our partnership with Zynga and FarmVille 2 raises awareness and important funds to help No Kid Hungry fight childhood hunger. The FarmVille to Table digital cookbook embodies the values of fresh, farm to table ingredients, and validates that cooking is fun, easy and an activity the whole family can enjoy.”

We’ll be rolling out more delicious recipes in our complete FarmVille to Table digital cookbook later this fall. In the meantime, you can preview selected recipes from players, our executive chef and notable food writers at:
