Internet Scabble

Until I joined the world of blogging last year, I used to be an fanatic internet scabbler.
For those of you that are not familiar with this phenomenon, you join a 'club' which allows you to play with people from all over the world and you can choose the language you want to play in. The rules are the same as board scrabble but you set your own parametres - how long do you want your game to be, do you want the computer to check your spelling for you or not etc.
Each time you win a game your points rating increases and each time you lose a game your points reduce.
Over the last week I have started to play again and started to win. It takes a while to get back into the swing 
of it, but I am now hooked again.
If anyone is interested in knowing more or playing a game, just contact me

I think I would lose to much time Scrabbling!! We were given a Scrabble calendar for Christmas [its in the downstairs loo] I was appalled that last week, there were TWO spelling mistakes in it!

I agree it can take over your time. I play it when everyone else is watching tele.
Elizabethd -You need to download the game from the site, set a user name and password then off you go.

It's been years since I played Scrabble. I was surprised to read you can play internet Scrabble but really I shouldn't be as DH plays internet Chess. Great game to keep your mind active.
