Have you ever been addicted to something you suck at? Words With Friends has become my new addiction and not only that but has now become something that I aspire to become good at…. Because right now… I’m not that good.
Above is an actual game I played with my friend Evan. Now, he’s a pretty smart guy, and I knew that, but look at some of those words he came up with. ’Gelato’, ‘Axmen’, ‘Warder’, ‘Ripple’. These words kill it in Scrabble. Not to mention all the double and triple word scores.
So I think I’ve only won two or three games in the ten or fifteen I have played. No good. Time to pull out the old Dictionary and start reading again.
So who’s got it? You good at it? Time waster or amazing technology bringing the world around the Scrabble board in one united awesome game?
And if you’re up for the challenge of everyone reading this, leave your screen name in the comments and let the games begin.
