Congrats on "DODGIEST," BTW. I was genuinely impressed. [Smile]

Thanks. It was a good one. I thought I was screwed when I realized I left the triple word score wide open. I'm glad I had something.

It's a special Scrabulous application for Facebook. It's sort of like Play By Social Networking Scrabble.

Okay, I've got a Facebook account now. Can anyone explain how the Scrabble thing works?

You have to add the application. I can't remember how to do it the normal way. I just got a notification when Tom added the application and I followed a link on the notification to add it myself. If I had access to Facebook at work, I'd help you.

I just found the application and added it, but it looks like it's offline for maintenance right now.

I'd be up for normal scrabulous scrabble, I get off work in about 15-20 minutes.

I think you just friended me. When I get home, I'll challenge you to a game (or you can go ahead and challenge me now and I'll get to it at home).

Really? It's the first hit when I search for Scrabulous.

Holy crap, Primal. A bingo and a quadruple word score? Who knew your Scrabble-fu was so powerful? Are you sure you're not using a word builder? *eyes suspiciously*

A quadruple word score you say? I didn't realized those existed... I've only seen doubles and triples on my board.

Play a word that spans two double word scores, and voila, quadruple word score.

Pure luck. When I play scrabble IRL, I can strategize with the placement. With Scrabulous, they don't label the squares, so I'm never quite sure what they mean. I was as surprised as you by that score.

Tom is currently kicking my butt (despite the aforementioned DODGIEST). So my Scrabble-Fu is weak.

The bonus squares are all color-coded, so you just have to know what each one means. Blue squares are letter bonuses, red ones are word bonuses, dark ones are triple, and light ones are double.

And I figured it was mostly just luck. I played a game once where the first team started off with a bingo and then got another bingo on their second turn. Starting off with a 100-point advantage over the other three teams pretty much seals the game, though Ruth and I did give them a run for their money.

Ah yes, I refer to such as a Double-Double. And two triples as a Triple-Triple. The second has only ever happened to me once though.

Played my best game EVER last night. 658. Five bingos. [Cool]

Chances are that I'll never score that much again in my whole life. Freaky, freaky game.

OK could somebody explain to me how you get a bingo in Scrabble? I've never heard of that.

Bingo = when you play all 7 tiles, and you get a 50-point bonus. Kind of a dumb word for it -- I like "epiphany" better.

Oh! See I knew what an epiphany was, I'd never heard it called a bingo, I kept looking at the scrabble board trying to figure out how you could possibly get a bingo on the stupid thing.

Holy crap. I'm not sure I've ever gotten more than one in a game.

Yow. Had another 5-bingo/epiphany game last night. (But only 590 this time... [Wink] )

Really weird. I mean, I'm happy to be doing this good, but it's not like I've been studying up or anything, 3 in a game has been my record for years and years, and suddenly I get two 5-bingo games...

Those are nice scores, Plaid.

Have any of you guys tried Scrabble Blitz at Scrabulous? I find it too addictive, because the rounds are only four minutes and I keep telling myself "just one more round..."
