It’s not alcohol, cigarettes, heroin or any other illegal drug…. it’s word games!
One game is Lexulous – a Facebook word game. I love this game and each morning I play it. Lexulous, which is similar to Scrabble, offers two dictionaries. One is the US dictionary; the other is the UK dictionary. The UK dictionary offers many more two-letter words such as CH, KY, NY, FY, plus longer words that aren’t in the US dictionary. Plus, you’re allowed to use the dictionary while you’re playing.
I find it are hard to play Wordcrasher and Words with Friends (both are FB games) on my phone so I play these on my computer. Words with Friends also has a dictionary you use – but I find it’s US dictionary limiting.
Some who play Words with Friends find it more challenging. Maybe because I’ve played Lexulous longer and it has the UK dictionary that I obviously enjoy. When I play Words with Friends its fun but not very challenging. Plus there are words one can use in Lexulous that aren’t not in Words with Friends. However, more people play Words with Friends than Lexulous, meaning of course it’s more popular.
Let me now add Soltaire. I’ve become addicted to Soltaire. I’ve won (I think it’s rigged) many times and for some reason I’m addicted to it.
There are other games such as the card games Monopoly Deal, Karma and the word game Quiddler that I enjoy.
If you love word games, let’s play together. But watch out – you could become addicted!
