Passing time

It’s funny how someone like me can fill up a day just running around and doing miscellaneous stuff. I’m on the computer a lot (which most of you probably know) and have found something fun that I’ve been doing with friends and family to break up the monotony. It’s an online version of Scrabble.

You can play against a ‘robot’, against others online, solitaire, or what I’ve been doing – via email. I’ve had games going with my sisters, brother-in-law and father-in-law simultaneously. Basically, you set up the game by entering email addresses. The person initiating the game (you) will be the first player, then the system emails the next player that it’s their turn. You don’t need to wait for the email – you can just check the status anytime by checking back at the site (it helps to bookmark it in your favorites). When setting up the game, you have the choice to play with the automatic dictionary (where the computer won’t let you play an invalid word) or a “challenge” version which is more like the traditional game. Points are automatically calculated and you can even see the progression of words played with point value for each player.

It’s fun to play, and because everything is via email/online, the game can run over the course of days, weeks, or even months if necessary. You can play with up to four people total. Check it out:

Have fun!
