w is for word

I love words

I love wordplay

I love weaving words

I especially love reading words

this year I learned about bananagrams

and the wonderful world of fb scrabble

there are some who don't really like to play but do like to watch



although I love to play scrabble I'll never reach the level of play of competitive scrabble players - which is fine with me. by the way, have you watched word wars? we're talking serious word freaks!

"You can be God if you've got the right tiles?" (the man says in the video). You can also be God if you have a few shingles loose :-)

seriously, I realize the guy is just expressing his love of the game. I think Scrabble is great too, but that book and that tournament? I'll take a nap with the cat, thank you. (gorgeous pic by the way.)

cheers to you, kimy. You can be God if you've got the right tiles... I'm still laughing. That is funny.

FB Scrabble rocks! But those tournament guys are out there--I agree with Mum: "You can be God if you've got the right tiles" is really funny.

Roy said...

Hmmm... I like my words in books, not puzzles, so I'll pass on the Scrabble, thank you.

Mum, he said "You can beat God if you've got the right tiles." Although that's the first I ever heard that God plays Scrabble.

My parents would play scrabble a lot and I have their old set on the top of a cupboard, but have never got around to getting it out. Maybe I should.

Obviously there's no testing for banned substances-LOL!( what'd that guy bring, and entire Osco's? ). Scrabble is a fun game but only as such and not extreme like this-OY!

The cat has the right idea :)

I am a fellow logophile although my vocabulary pales in comparison to most. Facebook Scrabble...I have never played but now I think I am going to check it out. Cute post.

Megan said...

Wow, who are you playing against in THAT one? Great words!!!

I am available for fb scrabble any time if anyone wants to find me. :)

I tend to lose by making interesting words rather than going for the most points.
