So yes, I am still on my Words with Friends kick. I LOVE this app. (In fact, today it kept me occupied for a 2 hour wait for a doctor.)
I read this article on Scrabble and it had me wondering… will Words with Friends introduce a new version as well?
Mattel said the use of names will add a “new dimension” to Scrabble
The rules of word game Scrabble are being changed for the first time in its history to allow the use of proper nouns, games company Mattel has said.
Place names, people’s names and company names or brands will now count.
Mattel, which brings out a new version of the game containing amended rules in July, hopes the change will encourage younger people to play.
Until now a few proper nouns had been allowed which were determined by a word list based on the Collins dictionary.
In Scrabble, players try to gain the highest points by making words with individual letter tiles on a grid board.
Each letter tile has a points value between one and 10, based on the letter’s frequency in standard English.
Various coloured squares on the board can double or triple a player’s points.
DO IT Words With Friends! I’ll pay another $2.99 to have this new edition! Wondering if all the cheat sites are updating their generators as well…..
Insider Info: A certain someone who fathered my children had lunch with a few of the Words with Friends developers. At this time, there is no Android app in development – but there will be a Words with Friends for the iPad.
