YouPlay’s had a makeover and we’ve packed in lots of fabulous new games and community features. Here’s a quick rundown on the latest:

Chat Rooms
You can invite your friends to chat in real-time, or choose a room and join the conversation. Located in the Players Lounge, the chat rooms will keep the YouPlay community connected. Stay tuned for special guest appearances by celebrity chatters!

Leader Boards
If there’s one thing I like it’s seeing my name in lights, so I’m loving the new YouPlay leader boards (even though the reality of my rankings is quite depressing!) Do you score the highest points? Get the fastest times? Spend more time playing your favourite game than anyone else? Find out by checking your scores in the Players Lounge - in my case at least, it’s an incentive to keep trying!

Revamped Puzzles & Games
All your old favourites have been given a facelift to reveal their most winsome charms including the great selection of Crosswords, Word Puzzles and Trivia. Fans in search of Sudoku Combat will now find this addictive multiplayer game under the ‘Number Puzzles’ category.

NEW Games
Our exciting new category - Action Puzzles - includes popular games like Zuma®, and Rocket Mania™. I dare you to play Bejeweled® 2 and not become completely hooked!

Message Inbox
Your YouPlay personal messaging inbox is an internal email system that helps you keep in contact with your friends while on the site. It works just like your regular email, except that it is restricted for use only between YouPlay members. You can check to see if you have any new messages in your orange Profile Box, found in the top-left hand corner of the home page. Keep an eye out as the YouPlay Team will regularly be in touch!

Horoscopes
Read daily predictions by renowned astrologist Dadhichi.

Points and Tokens
Most YouPlay games now award points and tokens. Play quickly and accurately to maximise your points, and trade tokens for other features including additional game play from the archives. Find out more about how points and tokens work by reading the latest News articles.

Prize Draws
YouPlay Premium Members from Australia can enter Weekly Prize Draws for a chance to WIN cash prizes! It couldn’t be easier to enter – all you have to do is play. Each unique game will give you one entry into the draw each day, so the more games you play, the more chances you have to win.
My hearty congrats to cjoy – our first $400 weekly winner!

I’m really looking forward to getting to know you all, why not post a comment about the new-look site?

Jessie

Hi Jessie, the site is fabulous, when its working, which unfortunately it's not a lot of the times. I have made a mention of Xwords not working properly etc in the chat forums. This morning myself and five (so far) could not load any games whatsoever. Tried refreshing and all and to this time no one has picked up the complaints.e go to the Tech section and have a look at non loading of games forum. Thank you, John

Hi John, You're right - YouPlay did experience load problems on Sunday, however staff were not made aware until late that night, which is why no information was posted sooner. We would never purposely ignore questions from our members - and the last thing we want is to stop people accessing the puzzles! A news article was also posted on Monday, as soon as we had all the details. Rest assured that a policy is now in place to minimise the chances of this issue occuring again, and any tokens lost from trying to access the puzzles have been refunded.

On behalf of the Team I thank all our members for being patient while we have been working to fix the few (inevitable) bugs. Our mission is to provide a fantastic and friendly site packed full of quality puzzles and games, and as puzzle addicts ourselves, it is in our best interests that we deliver! -Jessie
