Somehow Scrabble got cool
If you’ve been reading for a while, you probably know that I’ve reviewed Scrabble style games before. By now, you’ve most likely heard of Words with Friends, whether you wanted to or not. Its pretty much a standard Scrabble with two players and a only slightly modified board.
I’ve always been a fan of Scrabble, and other sort of games that help engage the mind. Words with Friends captures that fairly well, which is fairly uncommon for a Facebook game. You can also have any number of games going at a time (assuming you can get others to play with you).
Unfortunately, getting other people to play with you can be an issue. With >50 people on my friends list who have the app installed, I only have around 4 people ho actually play. Even then, most of them don’t play more an a move every other day, making some games drag again.
Overall, an ok way to waste the occasional 10 minutes, but not a game to go out of your way to play.
