I’m a sucker for fun apps, especially when it seems like everybody in the world is talking about them. I overdosed on the Angry Birds Kool-Aid. I’ve Cut The Rope a few times. I’ve even been a Fruit Ninja, though I gave up on that one pretty quickly since it seemed…pointless.
Right now it seems Words With Friends is all the rage. Basically it’s Scrabble without using the word Scrabble and you can play against your friends. (Hence it not being called Words With Yourself, I guess.) Who doesn’t love Scrabble? Hell, I even mentioned it in both Exclusively Yours and Yours To Keep.
So do I have the Words With Friends app? No. Why? Because I’m not good at Scrabble. At all. Turning words into books I can do. Turning letter tiles into words? I suck like a turbo-charged Dyson.
It’s embarrassing, really.
How about you? Do you rock the Scrabble board? What’s your favorite board game? (I’m partial to Monopoly…until I start losing and then the board has a tendency to suffer a tragic and accidental overturning.)
Edited to add: My very favorite board game is probably Trivial Pursuit. THAT I’m good at.
