Knife Fighting Scrabulous

Work has been exhausting the last few days. Since I returned from my brother's wedding, it's been non-stop 18 hour days while I finish up projects. And finally, I have a chance to breath a little bit, catch up on my email, blogs, and, of course, Scrabulous.

Doug says that playing Scrabulous with me is like a knife fight. It's close in and vicous with nowhere to move. Which is true. Because when I played a game with Karen Meisner, this is how our game started:

She then, of course, proceded to kick my ass.

But what fun is a game if you aren't challenged when you play. When you continuously trounce the competition and aren't even trying? When you know that you will win every single game? Luckily for me, most of my Scrabulous buddies kick ass and I don't feel sorry for them. I learn new words every day. Or maybe every other.

In any case, it is late and I am going to bed. Have a good night everyone!

I don't know, I like more distance in my knife fights. Playing you is more like Greco-Roman wrestling -- all headlocks and finesse.

Also, FUN! Our games always make me think, and never fail to make me laugh.

I'm glad you enjoy our games. I know some people find it frustrating!

For the record, I don't find it frustrating. After all, I still usually win. :-P

(Although, so far, you're still the only person who's beaten me. I've had some really tight games with other people, though, so it's just a matter of time -- Helen's really good, I just got lucky against her so far. And then, some games weren't very close -- I outscored Greg more than 3:1 -- sorry, dude.)

Scrabble is part skill, part luck. Because when you get a whole rack of vowels or a whole rack of high point count consenants, there's really nothing too great to do with it. But I am determined to beat you again!

Dude, EVERYONE outscores me by more than 3:1.

Karen and I made the prettiest Scrabble pattern. And then she outscored me 3:1.

I dunno, I got lucky that game, I don't know if I could manage 3:1 again -- maybe 2:1. :-P

I was really hoping to score 500 points (482 was so close, and yet so far -- I think that's my all-time record in Scrabble of any sort -- as best I can tell, Scrabulous is exactly the same as Scrabble), but challenging you to another game kinda felt like picking on you.

I feel bad for wanting to score 500 points on you, too. But you know, I'm a bad person.
