For the last six months or so, I’ve been a little obsessed with playing Words with Friends, the smartphone version of Scrabble. I had never actually played Scrabble before taking up WWF (seems impossible, given that I’m such a word nerd, but it’s true) and as a result, I was fairly terrible in the beginning and got crushed pretty routinely. In time, however, I got a handle on the strategic part of the game – triple letters, double word score, bonus for using the full tray, etc. All of which lead me to this the other day:


I’m pretty sure I’ll never get that lucky again, but it was fun in the moment.

    I hear you, I was really hooked for a while. I have never gotten that many points in one play though! Congrats, big time! Then I progressed to Hanging with Friends, now Draw Something. I’ve become a slacker on all my games because now I have too many that I love!

      I’d never gotten that many points, either – which is why I took a screen shot! I can’t draw at all, so I’ve been avoiding Draw Something. I don’t think anyone could figure out my pictures.

        you’d be surprised! plus they only have certain letters to choose something so it is also a little like hanging with friends! It’s fun!!

    HAH! Nice. Is this the word you couldnt find space for?

      Nope. Had to give up on both of those and play something else. Sigh.
