Okay guys, help me out.  I'm going bonkers, stuck on the couch with my foot higher than my heart.  Anyone feeling verbose?  Challenge me on WWF--my handle is RedBekka.

Thanks!

We have moved on from that and are now playing Dice Buddies. The free version. (AKA Yahtzee). Just another thing to add to your fun!

Heal well :)

The answer is yes. With most people I won some and lost some. But RebD bitch slapped me in every game.

Penguin Pants, Vans husband, spanked me pretty good as well.

I do feel like I am a better player for playing them though.

I'm pretty sure they cheat.   :D

While I have a relatively good control of the English dialect, my laptop died again, and I am on my iPad, which I cannot stand. Hence, all the typo's.  I was too afraid to match whits you on this POS.  But when I get A new puter, it's game on.    NOT.  I know better. Which blows, cause I too am trapped.  A new baby.   :D

Ugh.  Auto correct

I considered using that with RebD. I would have come clean after....probably. Mostly because it would have been obvious after getting whooped 30 times in a row.  :D

With getting beat or the cheating?

I learned from playing her even if i lost.

Cheating? Just for fun. I'd have come clean after.

I just have to defend my husband's honor. He doesn't cheat, he just plans carefully. He'll steal all the triple word scores or put the best letter on a triple letter. It is easier to plan on the computer/phone since you can take as much time as you need for a word.

He beats the crap out of my aunt on WWF too, and she is a traditional scrabble champion. They are more even in a traditional game, with the time pressure.

Hmm, this sounds interesting.  I play Scrambled and mostly lose, but, like eyebp, I still learn from it.  When I see words that folks come up with, heck, I haven't even heard of most of them.  I have such a first-grader vocabulary!

As for vocabulary, I think there should be a requirement that you define any word you use.  Then we'd all learn some things!  I do wonder about WWF, as the game accepts some words I don't think are right.  Can't think of one now, but plurals that shouldn't be, that sort of thing.

Of course, my favorite radio show is "Says You" on NPR :D
