Calling all crossword enthusiasts: Words With Friends is back and better than ever, so gather all your literary besties for the ultimate night-in with Words With Friends 2.

The sequel to our favorite app has returned with new features, such as the Solo Challenge, where you’ll compete against a bot with difficulty increases, and the fast-paced Lightning Round mode, where you’ll be grouped into teams for lightning-fast competition on changing boards.

Celebrities like Haylie and Hilary Duff, Erin and Sara Foster, and model Alessandra Ambrosio gathered at Norah Restaurant in West Hollywood to celebrate the launch of everyone’s favorite mobile word game on Thursday evening. The event included a whimsical photo booth, friendship bracelet stations (because, duh), friendship matching tattoo booths, and bestie food and drink themed items appropriately dubbed “The BFF” and “The Bestie.”

Photo booth props on point!

Friendship bracelet stations are essential to any gathering, tbh.
