I've been doing Words With Friends for a few weeks now, with the username I have here, if anyone fancies a game. Or should I get the feud one. Is it better?

I'm on this too, username emmlpop.

I'm rubbish at it, so if anyone fancies an easy win just play me! My first games were with crystalball and humblebee so I'm quite used to losing.

It's hard playing Scrabble against yous. I feel like a dimwit.

I don't know if it's better, but there seem to be loads of us on Wordfeud...

Fibs! Your second word against me was a 'bingo' - VEXATION. Rubbish? Not likely!

I have proper status anxiety now!

I need to remember to play for points rather than length or prettiness of words. I also need more practice.

I think Wordfeud has some more ridiculous square placements. You can get two triples in one word for instance...
Toot toot.

Yeah, wordfeud can get way more tactical, than say scrabble, because of the placements. It becomes a bit like snooker sometimes.

I think I'm addicted to Wordfeud. I get antsy when it's not my turn against anyone. Will anyone challenge me?

i played scrabble for the first time (in memory, anyway) a few weeks ago and it was ace! i came in last, but that didn't really matter. it was on pretend-canada-day at the barbican and coincidentally, the second word on the board ended up being "eh"! magical!

Carys just played "ANORAKS" for 53 points against me.

I thought this probably needed mentioning.

There should be double points for that.

I've recently downloaded Wordfeud - and would be up for playing this with fellow anorak folk.

Judging by this thread, a fair few folk are already right good at this!

Am a big fan of word games - scrabble too - so this is definitely my kinda thing.

Am northernlight27 on Wordfeud btw - so do give me a shout if you're up for a game or two.

I'm having the craziest game of Wordfeud ever with crystalball. Between us we've had seven turns so far. On five of these turns we've used all seven letters. Even one of the turns that didn't use all seven letters scored 114 points. Every big play opens up another. It's like when Ossie Ardiles was in charge of Spurs and they used to lose 8-6.

I appear to have conclusively proved that you CAN break a phone by playing too much Wordfeud. Apologies to those I currently have games running with - I assume I will have forfeited by the time my phone has been fixed / replaced!

I'm secretly quite happy about this because I played a really panicky hand against you earlier (I had about five minutes left in the game and was putting my daughter to bed), wasting five perfectly good letters on a low score and opened you a DW/TW!

So take your time with that phone. :)

Hehe! I shall be sure to issue some new challenges when / if I get a replacement phone. If the O2 shop look at it and mutter "too much scrabble" under their breath then I won't be entirely surprised. I assume there's a wordfeud warranty?

Apparently the rules of Scrabble have now changed, and you can have proper nouns. Has this been mentioned above? I'm somewhat scandalised, regardless.
Like others hither and yon, I fanny around at music - my band is always on the look out for other bands to split releases with. Any cockamamie idea considered - cassette, 7" vinyl, yellow flexi disc, wax cylinder and shellac 78s. PM me. ; - )
