10:37 pm - Milestone scrabble game

I played my first proper game of (Junior) Scrabble with Flora yesterday. The first of many games, I hope. She insisted on scoring and was proud of all the adding she did <3

Scrabble 13/01/13

10:32 pm - plank sequins


A game involving me, littlebun and miss_newham in the sunshine in my garden in Southsea. It was a fun, open game in which we all got roughly the same score (though I won, hoorah!) and we ate crisps and mini bakewell tarts.

We played superscrabble last night and two games of regular scrabble today. The results were mixed. gleet won the super and the first regular; I won the second, having joyfully been given 4 seven-letter-words. On the regular games we combined to make 800 and then 750-ish.

Super (slim quim):

One (roundish farce):

Two (shaggier ox):

Thank you, gleet. Very satisfying.

10:18 pm - Putting the guano back into, er, no

guano slatterns

I played GUANO thinking that it was fairly safe from extension... and immediately saw IGUANODON. I won't forget that one.

9:33 am - Silver Ape Woodie

littlebun and I are on holiday in Egypt, so naturally we are playing quite a lot of Scrabble. In yesterday's three games, Bethan won the first, and I won games 2 and 3. To her credit, I did end up with both blanks in the two games I won, and used them both to get 50pt bonuses. The second game was probably the most satisfying. At least, I was quite pleased to play SILVER on the existing EX and VAGUE and QUAIR across CUBE and PIKE. It was a close run thing, though - Bethan got all the triple word scores that were reached.

6:42 pm - amateur dream trailers

I have already posted this to my own journal, but meant to put it here. Sorry to those who are seeing it twice

Tomorrow we're off to Egypt for a rare beach holiday. In celebration of getting all the stuff out the way today that we needed to get done, we went to our favourite bar (note the usual background tabletop) and had a game of scrabble. I was dealt a series of quite decent racks, and got 3 50 point bonuses, albeit with the help of the two blanks. littlebun was dealt TRAILER and duly started with it, but then had a lot of frustrating racks. All of which means I won with around 450 points. hooray! We will take scrabble to Egypt with us...

Played a game with gladia on Internet Scrabble Club. I think its fair to say I didn't fair so well, but she is very proud of her 380 points score.

This post brings you a screen-captured game from the Internet Scrabble Club, which has quite a nice setup for playing online. gladia was taken, so I went back to my old name shandarii.

There's a rating system that I haven't quite worked out, but apparently if you have a provisional rating, you can only play two rated games against the same opponent... so if anyone fancies a game let me know!

12:10 am - Pink scrabble

After work, we christened my new pink scrabble set. I narrowly (by one point) lost the first game to sfashley:

but the second I won:

There were four of us, and the game ended when I laid BIOLOGy. There were no tiles left in the bag, but nearly 20 on the other 3 racks, hence the board looks a bit incomplete.

7:33 pm - goat quims

It's been a while since I've posted a game. littlebun and I played two games this afternoon. She won the first, I won the second. In both cases the loser had a rather poor 271 points. Here are the games and the scoresheet:

(sorry about the crappy resolution. I only took my camera phone to the bar with me)

There were slightly more rude words than normal in last night's game, and also an good selection of 7&8 letter words:
