If you’ve never played, it’s basically a version of Scrabble where you can play opponents online, but as a leisurely pace. So you have to wait for them to make a move before your next turn. Sometimes this can take a matter of minutes, other times a matter of days. It’s smart to keep a few games going at once if you’re constantly playing otherwise you’ll find yourself impatiently waiting for the screen to refresh. The great thing about this game that differs from the original board game is that you don’t have to challenge your opponent on words you don’t think are valid nor do you need to have a scrabble regulation dictionary nearby. The game will tell you when a move is acceptable. Which may be seen as an easy way out since you can keep trying tiles until you make a word. Although this has helped me learn what words are acceptable to play. Like all other apps, this one is more than usually distracting and I find myself playing it at every spare moment, sometimes when I shouldn’t.
There are also cheater apps that can find combinations of words that yield the highest score. Which my husband tried out on me with telling me. And it just so happened to be one of my highest scoring games and it was making me mad that he was beating me by 200 points! Eventually we’ll both bore of the game, but until then I will have to find some creative words that have “z” or “q.”
