Scrabble Blast

    After reading Word Freak, I felt an obligation to play Scrabble. At pogo.com, you can play a version dubbed Scrabble Blast.

    Last night, I scored 1,845 points. It's the second time I've been less than 200 points from 2,000. But it seems nearly impossible to achieve this feat. If anyone else plays, let me know where you stack up. I'd love to hear that someone has reached 2,000. Otherwise, I might just quit trying to do what seems unthinkable.

    During the very dark post-SportsPages pre-Boom/SJ era, I was addicted to something called Scrabble Blitz....you get a blank board and four minutes to get as many words onto it as possible, playing against anyone else who was also playing at the same time. The site crashed around the same time SJ and Boom showed up, so I just switched addictions.

    Is this anything like that? Always looking for a new (and legal) addiction.

    (Edit...not the same game. Very sad.)

    And as I stated on a scrabble-themed thread a while ago, if you ever wanna challenge me to a real game of scrabble, pm me. I love playing people on the program from isc.ro

    Facebook has an application called Scrabbulous. You play against friends, whenver you log on it'll tell you if it's your turn or your opponent's.

    And Scrabble is suing them for infringment of copyright.

    Yes, which is worrying my Scrabbulous-addicted wife.

    Inky,
    Why don't you just play Scrabble with her? :)

    I play there, too, and it's unfortunate.
    Tell her about ISC.ro I promise it's good stuff.

    I've offered. But she likes playing against her old college roommate and high school friends online.
