Scrabble babble

It's no secret that I love rainy weather, and nothing's better than a rainy afternoon spent at Book Cafe.

Book Cafe Book Cafe

Especially when I finally win a Scrabble game for the first time in my life, and score more than 200 points (211, to be exact).

Book Cafe

Huzzah!

Because merely playing Scrabble isn't enough, the four players are now invited to write something using all the words we played in each game in the order in which they were played, viz.:
  • Game 1: dancer, an, glower, chad, coronet, ant, cages, axis, winter, die, goo, maven, hemp, goon, torn, awake, miller, proved, tearful, quit, zip, tearfully, doe, maxis, jay, sour, qi, fa, goo (yes, it made a second appearance).
  • Game 2: scabby, boiling, horny, data, thorny, wholes, safe, silks, luau, peons, quiz, option, yen, confess, magnates, gamer, dew wend, divot, jived, latte, plod, ax, ex, turn, roil, re.
Contributions from non-players are welcome.

You forgot 'tearfully' from Game 1 that got megapoints. Again.

Added, thanks. But now I can't remember what I played after your "quit" and before LittleMissDrinkalot's "zip".

Hmmm.... your sequence of words in Game 1 is very inviting... but I must resist, until I'm done with my papers! :)

Later...

I STILL have yet to win a game of scrabble, so I can only savour your victory.

I'm in my bouts of homesickness currently and miss Singapore quite a lot. Your photos are both a source of comfort and pensive yearning for more familar surrondings. Sigh...

Which version of the scrabble dictionary are you guys using? It seems to include hanyu pinyin and names of Malaysian mobile network operators... Hehe.

Abigael > Set! Although if you can't tell from the post, I am a very bad player. Just ask the others how long it took me to make a play when it came to my turn ...

m2cr > It's okay. That game was my first real victory (as in, not just pip someone by 1-2 points). As for homesickness, er ... just imagine this is some generic cafe in Perth and maybe it won't 'look' like Singapore anymore?

TKL > The Scrabble dictionary we were using --- is the one in our brains :) Not sure which word is the name of the Malaysian mobile network operator, but we found "qi" listed in one of these small handbooks that are sometimes packaged with Scrabble sets, so we've used it ever since.

People start chewing my chair from under me because I take too long. That's why I stopped playing Scrabble, and started playing Boggle.
Of course, it's like the mentally retarded ADD cousin of Scrabble.

I love Boggle! Boggle I can occasionally win at!

What I totally can't do is Grabble. Ugh! BoKo is a fiend at it. I don't reorder letters and recognise word combinations fast enough.
