Word Games

This is the day 7 of the 2019 edition of the 20 Days of Chill writing challenge hosted by P. J. at A ‘lil HooHaaPlease join us this month on our writing journey. Today's prompt is Games and Hobbies.

Random Board
Games. I played them as a kid with my parents. We would play Uno and Yahtzee and sometimes Rummy. As adults, we went through a phase of playing Scrabble. Now, in the age of smart phones, we play a variation of Scrabble called Word Feud. It is similar to Words with Friends and other online word games. It is something we have been doing for over 7 years, every day. Hubby and I play each other and two other friends. 

It never gets old because each game is different. Like in Scrabble, sometimes you get great letters and sometimes you get crappy ones. You can swap or pass, if you can't play or don't want to play what you have. We often remark on what a wicked sense of humor Word Feud has because you may swap some or all of your letters, hoping to get something better, and find you are no better off than before, and you lost a turn. 

There are two different board styles, the standard board which closely resembles Scrabble and a random board that has way more opportunities to score big, win big...or lose big. We play the random board with each other and the standard board with everyone else. 

The benefit of playing on the phone (or other mobile device) is that you can stop and start and play when you have a few minutes and not have the pressure of finishing a game. As I sit typing this post, I just got a notification that "someone played".  

Do you play games on your phone? Solo or with others?

  1. I play words with friends and soduko :)

  2. Hi Linda - I don't use my mobile that much .. perhaps if I had a hubby or kids I might - but interesting to read your ideas. We played lots of board games growing up ... Uno only came into my life with god-children and others' kids! Still enjoy them on occasions - cheers Hilary
