Words with Friends
« on: October 07, 2011, 09:47:31 PM »

So I'm playing a game against Dan. He played a word for 131 points this afternoon.  :o My phone wasn't even able to display all 3 digits!

I don't think there's a chance I can come back to win this one. I'm just trying to stay within 100 points now.

I love Words With Friends. It's the greatest thing ever. Okay, not ever, but you know what I mean.

Play me! Anyone! Username: Danimal061

I tend to win a lot, but not always. And people who like to play, like drougan (from woxy) eventually get tired of losing. My brother in law is good and we split against each other, but he doesn't play much. Plus, when you're playing someone who's really good...those games get highly defensive and then become frustrating/boring.

I suspect Ella will be a legit opponent, although I'm pretty sure I've got this game wrapped up. That move (which was my best move ever, and she was essentially screwed regardless of what she played) was definitely my highest single scoring move of my career. I'd have 109 and 120 and so on, but never 131.

I could have decimated a cousin that I was playing against last week, so I held back in that game. She just wasn't strategic with her plays. Even when I didn't try, I was still getting 30+ point words. Hopefully I'll have better letters in our rematch, which should start soon!

I have resisted starting Words with friends but mostly because I know that once I start I won't be able to stop.

Hello, my name is Stephanie and I have an addictive personality.  ;D

I caved. It'll give me something to do while I am at my Parent's house this week. I'm Poolio76.

Oh hey... Trixi?

So, yeah, I refused to add the facebook connection to WWF but finally caved late last week, so I didn't know until like 4 days ago that we were playing each other. Just thought I'd apologize for not realizing this.

Oops! And sorry for killing you. You were labeled as User564321681651564 or whatever, and therefore just a nameless/faceless opponent. :)

Dear words with friends,

"June" is totally an acceptable word. Now quit giving me nothing but consonants!

Isn't it a proper noun?

In the real world, yes. But, apparently not in Words with friends.

You can't play proper nouns in WWF.

Those of you I normally play WWF with....I'm not seeing any games anymore.  I had 5 going and they're all gone.  It also won't let me start any new ones regardless of who I choose to start a game with, so if you're still seeing the games we were playing, that's why I haven't been taking my turns.

And of course, right after I posted, I decided to uninstall/reinstall the app.  And now I see all games again.  ???
