So I’ve been watching Scrabulous catch on among my Facebook friends over the past few weeks and months (over 10% of my FB friends have it!) and have been thinking to myself “Oh, seems cool, but I won’t have the time”. Finally early this week Mom-the-fabric-snob sends me a request to play a game with he. I thought, ‘why not’, and installed the app (I don’t like to install FB apps generally).
I’m addicted. It’s amazing. I love it. Before this week, Scrabble has always been an occasional family event at my Oma’s house that reminds me of my Opa, who was always up for a game of Scrabble. Or Rummikub. Now that would be a great game for a Facebook app (hint, hint). But I digress – back to Scrabulous. Playing a casual game game of Scrabble in this format allows you the time to really look for words and make the most of all of your tiles. I actually played one word that used ALL of my tiles! GRANOLA – 62 points. You can play with many friends at a time, no matter where they are! Right now we have a game going on with Leah, Micaela, and I…although Micaela hasn’t made a move yet and Leah and I have made 2. Time for a friendly nudge.
Another fun part of Scrabulous is that you can play with absolutely anyone, anywhere. I put out a call for a game with someone random, not necessarily a friend, and am now playing with “Janet C”. After several moved I wondered to myself, who is Janet C? Turns out Janet is from Los Angeles. Pretty neat.
So if you’re looking for a way to spend a little time online and improving your vocabulary at the same time, try Scrabulous. Fun in every move – guaranteed!
