Homemade Scrabble keyboard




Someone loves Scrabble a whole bunch and by creating this awesomely nerdy keyboard, they must have scored themselves a quadruple word score.





It’s a wood and brushed aluminum keyboard that features real Scrabble tiles. The points score is slightly edited to show each key’s secondary function.


Everyone knows Scrabble and this is an awesome mod that looks like it could have come straight out of the game box. It’s a USB keyboard and the aluminum accents will very nicely match the Mac that it will be paired with.






When Grandma finds out, she’s gonna be pissed. Her Scrabble Championship tournament is in a week.

Why Writers Like Scrabble



Judith Thurman writes in this week's New Yorker:
Scrabble is both mindless and cerebral, which may account for its appeal to writers—it gives you a chance to push words around without having to make them mean something.

Exactly.

Thurman's article, "Spreading the Word," is available online only to subscribers (the link above is to a summary, and doesn't at all convey the flavor of Thurman's writing).

There's a certain aptness there (or is it irony?), because the story is mostly about Scrabble's online revival and the copyright battle over Scrabulous, recently reborn as Lexulous.

So you'll have to buy or borrow a copy of the magazine, or subscribe to the digital edition, to read it. Not such a bad idea. Meanwhile, here's a passage I liked so much I copied it for you:

Scrabble is enjoying a second heyday. The first was in the early nineteen-fifties, when demand for sets outstripped production. (In 1954, an advertisement in this magazine showed a wedding party stampeding from a church; the bride explains to the baffled clergyman that the toy shop next door has a new shipment.)

Between one and two million sets are sold yearly; one in every three American households is reported to own one; and thirty thousand new games are said to begin, somewhere in the world, ever hour.

Players of note are a heterogeneous confraternity that includes Barack Obama, the Queen of England, Madonna, Igor Stravinsky, Rosie O'Donnell, Duke Ellington, Nora Ephron, Meadow Soprano, Dustin Hoffman, Justin Timberlake, Chris Martin, Maya Angelou, Carol Burnett, Richard Nixon, and Ludacris, who plays "hip-hop" Scrabble, using words like "crunk," "hizzo," and "pajawa"—a version of the "dirty" Scrabble that was popular with Hollywood swingers fifty years ago.

(I heard one of their ancient jokes at the tournament: "'Cervix' is my favorite opening.'")


Three-quarters of that paragraph is quintessential New Yorker: the scholarly use of statistics, the arcane vocabulary ("confraternity"), the long list, the lavish use of commas and semicolons.

(In his marvelous book The Sound on the Page: Style and Voice in Writing, Ben Yagoda quotes E.B. White, who said the New Yorker was the publication in which "commas ... fall with the precision of knives in a circus act, outlining the victim.")

Then, in the final two sentences, Thurman winks, cracks her knuckles, and talks dirty. Bingo.

Test Word and Poker Skills

in WordKing Poker


Combine two skills and double your fun!

If you have ever enjoyed any form of gambling, and at the same time craved some intellectual stimulation, WordKing Poker has got to be the game for you.
At least, that is what I feel about it. In WordKing Poker you get to play poker and scrabble all at the same time! What this game is in effect is a poker game which uses scrabble pieces!
That is why I always call it poker for the intellect. And you can play it wherever you are at any time of day or night since it comes on the mobile phone.

Why I love to play WordKing Poker

For me, while I always loved playing scrabble (because of the concept of the whole word forming thing of the game), I did find that it was not as cool as more high tech modern games are today. So when I found out about WordKing Poker, and saw the super cool graphics, I saw that as my opportunity to play scrabble at a higher, cooler level.
The only thing I would change about WordKing Poker is making it multiplayer. It is unfortunate that this feature is not yet included in the game.

Variety in WordKing Poker

The other cool thing about WordKing Poker is the variety it entails. You can play lots of different types of poker like 7 card stud, 5 card, Texas Hold'em and more, and at the same time use your word play skills.
The game has a really comprehensive dictionary too and the higher level game you play, the more challenging it will be for those real word buffs.

How to play WordKing Poker

Players get dealt 2 scrabble cards which have a letter and the point score (as in regular scrabble). The aim of the game is to use the letters you have (along with ones you will take from the community pile like in a poker game) so that you can create the longest and highest score words.
Depending on how much you bet will depend on how much you win.

Post: Scrabble and back pain / January 3, 2009


Scrabble and back pain


Today I seem to be on the losing end of both. I have been totally trounced in scrabble three nights in a row. (I didn't play the cancer card or claim chemo brain but I did get all the crappy one point letters so I couldn't get any good words.) Also, after two nights of okay sleep the back pain has returned which means I woke up about 4 am.

I think I was successful in confusing my doctor. Sometimes its nice to be able to do this. I called the doctor on Wednesday to find out the results of my x-rays.

Then she called me back with the results and said I should see a specialist also on Wednesday. But yesterday she called again and said she wasn't sure if I had called again or if she had already talked to me. She was confused. I did talk to her. I just need the referral.

Today I am totally unsure what we are doing. My brother is trying to plan but let's just say that nothing is planned yet.

Yesterday we did go sledding and for a nice walk. (It was nice or too long depending on who you asked. My husband said too long. My niece and nephew said it was nice.) We also ate too much food again.
Today we hope to eat less.

Google Scrabble



On Friday Night, Chun, Tsubasa, mDuo13, Appu, and I played Google Scrabble.

The rule is simple or KISS. Any word that appears on a Google search with 1,000 or more results is valid, LOL Score the word and play the game with Scrabble rules FTW.

Shall I recognize the innovation of Scrabble by playing with the Google rule or shall I fear the next generation talking l33t speak and ignoring the English dictionary?

Recognize the innovation, IMO.

Game 1 and Game 2 pickies ;)

"Google Scrabble is broken." --mDuo13
