    I just

    Kicked my wife's can at a game of Scrabble. I thought she had me but I made a late charge for the win. Who else likes Scrabble?

    It's an old game but it's still fun.

    My best word of the night was axiom for a triple word score.

    I like scrabble just like I like chess. I just can't find anyone to play.

    I love scrabble. Word games are among my favorites. My wife doesn't like them though.

    Love scrabble, If your into the smart phone stuff, Words with Friends is pretty fun. I think you can play it online also.

    My wife and I have the Scrabble app on our iPads, we play even when I am travelling. Fun game. Also, you can play against the machine so no partner needed.

    Deep down, you know she let you win.

    I kicked my son's butt at Stratego last night. He probably did the same.

    My wife beats me so consistently at scrabble that she has become bored with the game and reluctant to play it with me anymore.

    On our second date, my wife beat me at Stratego. It turned out to be a winning strategy.

    When the kids were little, I cut up a broomstick for pegs, drilled holes in sliced birch and oak rounds, and made a 3D Tic-Tac-Toe board.

    I love scrabble, I played the words with friends and the droid version for awhile on my smartphone. I won almost all the games and then nobody really wanted to play me anymore, lol. It prob really had to do with the fact that I would take forever and wouldn't play until I had the perfect word.
    The stupidity of some people NEVER ceases to amaze me.

    Scrabble is great, especially using Welsh words on a triple score.

    Example : Welsh word for "green" = gwyrdd

    My wife is a very intelligent woman with a BS and a Masters degree. Being so smart and well educated she gets frustrated when I whip her (which is every time we play ). My education is public high school and US Navy school of hard knocks. I take a lot of pride in my ability to win against her.

    She almost beat me last night and I had to really work hard to win. I have to be careful not to put up too many bingos so she doesn't get angry and quit. : )


    ETA: I had to Google Stratego but I remember it now. That was a fun game too.
