How I have the time for trivial games, I am not sure, but this game has really fit into my busy life perfectly. It fills in the brief periods of boredom perfectly. The fact that its also slightly intellectual and requires me to strengthen my vocabulary doesn't hurt either.
What the heck am I talking about?
Words with Friends!
It a game you can play on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod (heard rumors it might be on the Android, too?). One of my high school friends has been talking about it on face book and I finally decided to check out what he was raving about. Trust me. This app is worth the $1 price tag.
Basically its exactly like scrabble. Games are usually slow paced and you can either play with your friends if you know their user name or let the app search out a random player for you. If you want the game even allows you to be notified, like when you receive a text message, when its your turn. Sometimes games take days, other times less than an hour. You can even leave off a game anytime and come back to it later exactly where you left off with your opponent. I wish there were more apps like this you can play with your friends!
