  Monday Morning Mirth  

knittng patterns

The truth be told, I’ve settled into a routine.

Early to rise, early to caffeine, early to the Board…

My friend S. is a writer, a very good writer. She is also an enabler: over the last two months we’ve been furiously playing Scrabble on Facebook (I’m bonnemarie).

She routinely kicks me to the curb; sometimes by hundreds and hundreds of points.

I admit it, I’m a newb, didn’t know the rules, didn’t know about the 2-letter words.

Well that’s all over now!

And right about the time I put on my BGPants, we started playing Wordscraper instead.

It lets you pick the values of the little placement thingies or will make a random board for you. We are playing on one board where they have almost no value at all. Score: S/233; me/194.

But look closely at the one above and if you do some exploratory math, what happens?

The new, improved score: S/15568; me/56468.

Game on!

    Do you ever play Scramble? I’m a little obsessed. And I’m totally looking you up on Facebook! I’m always looking for fellow wordgame fiends. :)
