Triple word score, I OWN you!

Are y'all as big of a dork as I am? Because I know that Andi and Pen are, but are we alone in our love for Scrabulous (which has now been reincarnated as Lexulous)? Surely not, right?!

My husband and I have been closet nerds for a while now, playing Scrabble on the sly when no one was looking... but then Scrabulous came along and made Scrabble mainstream fun! And a Facebook application! Only cool people are on Facebook, right?

Even though this cool girl is not, in fact, on Facebook, Pen opened up the world of Scrabulous to me and I haven't looked back since. They offer games between you and your invited buddies! And via email! And a chat box during the game where you can talk all kind of Scrabble smack! How can you not love this game?!

I would be a liar if I told you that Pen and I have never played Scrabulous (Lexulous) online live, with our husbands, talking shit the whole time. I would be a BIG, FAT, LIAR if I tried to tell you that. Do you know how nasty it can get when four people are playing Scrabble with only a chat box between them? Yeah, it was ugly.

Since then, Andi and Pen and I have all been in a big Lexulous love fest playing via email, coming up with totally cheater words like ULAMA and QAT. Who knows those? Nobody but a looking-up-all-my-options cheater, that's who. Like me (I played qat).

If you are not in on Lexulous yet, you should be. And if you are, why don't you go ahead and send me an e-vite to join a game? I'll be happy to kick your ass, just like all the others. :) (See? The tough talking doesn't contain itself to the chat box! WHY MUST I PROMOTE MY DORKINESS?)

6 tips left at the bar:

Lexulous is the best game EVER. Who else is on board??

What's a QAT? I must know.

I LOVE scrabulous, but I mostly play on FAcen=book - what''s lexulous?

kwr221 said...

oops, a gremlin must've jumped on my keyboard.

Or maybe a cat.

hey, I found out that I'm already registered on Scrabulous. I'm also a dork if anyone wants to play.

I love Scrab/Lexu-lous! I also have been known to play QAT!

My problem is that I don't score very high because I'm more entertained by spelling dirty words rather than maximizing my points. Dirty words = the only thing that can overcome my competitive drive.
