It’s been three months since the last Scrabble challenge. It might still be hot but summer is coming to an end and I thought it was time to break out the tiles again. Because, of course, I like nothing better than to drive him insane…. And we all know how much he LOVES Scrabble. … Continue reading Scrabble Challenge of Olympic Proportions
Well… THAT was fun! We started out the weekend with a bang, but ran into time and, well, privacy constraints… but still made a go of it. The overall rules (linked above) said I had to get to at least 12 tiles. But you have to know, going in, that in my heart, I’m an … Continue reading Scrabble Part 3 – The Results
Long weekends seem to bring out the fun-loving spontaneous side of me. Or, as Snake likes to put it, the evil and devious side of me. [Snake: I think that depends on your perspective. “fun-loving” – I do think “devious” is more apt] Either way, it’s time for another Scrabble challenge. If you don’t remember the previous … Continue reading The Scrabble Tiles Are Out Again
Snake has been asking about another game. We haven’t played an official one since the beginning of June so I guess it’s about time to drive him insane again… The Scrabble tiles are back. You remember how much he adored them the first time, right? Scrabble is his favorite board game. Not. And that just … Continue reading Another Scrabble Challenge
As everyone who reads our blog knows, I enjoy games and challenges. It keeps things interesting and Snake and I are ridiculously competitive. So, last Friday I threw down the gauntlet on another one. If you missed it, the challenge is here. Yesterday Snake posted the results and his experiences from the challenge. I thought … Continue reading Scrabble Game Results From the Charmer Side
I don’t know if I mentioned it or not, but I really don’t like Scrabble. My brain fixates on letters (regardless of whether they make words or not) and I have a really hard time making anything more out of them. I can take FOREVER to come up with words. Like to the point where … Continue reading Scrabble Game Results
It’s time for a new Snake challenge weekend! I told him two days ago that I had one planned and he is equal parts excited and terrified. Of course, I know that as soon as he saw Scrabble in the title, he is groaning. During my daily scanning of hundreds of posts and pictures a … Continue reading The Scrabble Challenge
“I am the Bad Wolf. I create myself. I take the words. I scatter them … in time, and space. A message to lead myself here.” Russell T. Davies Forgive me if you aren’t a Doctor Who fan because the above quote might seem a bit Little Red Riding Hood. But I found my Bad … Continue reading Finding the Way Back
“Hey! Guess what!? It’s your day! I know it’s been a long time…” I stop in my tracks and look at you. It’s the weirdest thing because you’ve not suggested anything all day, I had no idea, not an inkling. I look at you and raise my eyebrow in a kind of “what’s the catch” … Continue reading Someday you’ll win!
As you may (or may not) know, Charmer loves to integrate games into… activities. She tends (tends?) to create rules around those games that just may favor her a bit. Maybe. If you haven’t seen it, you can check out multiple renditions of the @^#@#^@ scrabble-esque games she’s done in the past. There’s something about … Continue reading Shall We Play A Game?
