My Newest Addiction

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!  

My user name is "jhnx" so feel free to invite me to a game!

Just invited you to a game! I love it too. I just can't play during work time (except at lunch) so it can take me a while to play my turn sometimes.

Oh, I play this too. I'll send you a game - 'RMKop' is my user name, I think. :)

This looks like fun! I'm just too cheap to pay for apps. But I might break down one of these days. :)

I actually don't know how to play Scrabble. o.O It's the foreigner in me. But I've seen this game recommended a few places now; maybe I should check it out. :O My iPhone game of choice has always been Angry Birds so far. XD

I had never played scrabble before this game, but I am now totally hooked to Words with Friends. The only person I ever play with is my husband and I take forever with my turns because I really want to beat him!

I play this on my friend's work iPhone when we hang out, i.e. she's driving and it's her turn. It's pretty fun. I'm currently a lowly dumb phone user so I'll have to see if it's available with android when I eventually get myself a fancy phone. :)

Looks like fun! I have scrabble on my phone and love playing against the computer or if my husband is home we can play 2 player and just pass it back and forth while watching tv (we're dorks)....but it would be fun to play against other people like you can with your game.
