The Social Game

One of the few things to brighten up a predictable, routine day is an awesome game of Words With Friends (technically Scrabble) with a random stranger.

Most of the people I play with normally resign when they start to lose too much or just finish off unsatisfactory games. But this one (the picture above) was close to the end. Both of us tried to shy away from the left side where all the "Double Word" and "Triple Word" were waiting to be used. We were both waiting for each other to open access to them. He even made good use of the chat function commenting on my apparent "relentlessness" and "good plays" in Scrabble.

I wish every game went on like this. People should make better use of the chat function. It's such a good way to interact with random strangers who you'll probably never have a chance of meeting face-to-face. It's like a small form of Facebook without the stalking options.

Now if only Hasbro would speed up and make a Monopoly Deal app for the iPhone...(someone get this post out to Hasbro ASAP) If you do not know what Monopoly Deal is, I would be more than happy to show you how to play and whatnot. My friends and I like to say that it's the game that breaks friendships. Don't worry, it doesn't.
