Score!

It is day 8 of the Third Second Annual 30 Minus 2 Days of Writing challenge hosted by Nicky and Mike at We Work for Cheese and today's prompt is Damn!  Now get on over and check out the other participants at WWFC!

Sample game
There were a few things I thought of that could elicit such an exclamation, but didn't think any of those would be appropriate. Then I remembered something that happened a while back. Hubby and I play Word Feud on our phones.  This is a game similar to Scrabble or Words with Friends.  

Anyway, Hubby had a game going with a friend of ours, and after making a particularly good play, he got a one-word text message. We could hear our friend as if he were sitting at the table with us..."Dayum".

  1. I love playing Wordfeud. Until I lose, of course, then it's not any fun at all.

  4. If this is like Internet Scrabble I always cheat. I tell people right up front, "You know, I'm gonna cheat online." You wouldn't believe how many people say "Okay...will you still play?"

    I'm serious. ROFL

  5. I love those moments when somebody makes an awesome play, and everybody involved just has to stop for a minute to acknowledge the brilliance. Those are the moments to live for.

  6. I'd love to know what the word was to evoke that response. I play Words With Friends with a few people. It can be a lot of fun.

  7. I try to avoid games against other people. I'm much too competitive and would say a lot worse than 'Dayum' :-)

  8. I say it all of the time when playing WWF. Haven't heard of your game!

  9. Yep. That's how we see damn down here in the south. I've gotten good at it while playing WWF.

  10. Now I want to go ask Siri what d-a-y-u-m spells just to hear her say it. :)

  12. Ha ha ha!!!! That reminds me of when I play Words with Friends with my coworker Larry. He is AMAZING... he is always hundreds of points above me. I've only beat him twice. Every time he gets one of those 90+ point words (he doesn't cheat) I message back, "Dammit, Larry!"

  13. nonamedufus- It is, like Ziva said, when you win.

    Mariann- I guess they are confident they can win anyway.

    KZ- There have been some epic scores since we've been playing.

    Hilary- I wish I could remember. I think it was a triple digit score.

    Nicky- You competitive? I never knew. ;)

    laughingmom- I guess it's a lot the same.

    ReformingGeek- What part of the South?

    Jayne- Yeah, I'd like to hear that too.

    Linda- It's free, but there is a paid version without the ads.

    Katherine- Some people play fiercely, but I wouldn't know anything about that. ;)

  17. Sara- Yes, having a good time. It's true, we could just hear him saying that.
