I saw a three letter word.
Then a five letter word.
I shuffled the letters around.
I could use six letters.
Check out the point total.
A silent, mental, fist bump.
Then I tried just again to add in that final seventh letter.
Greedy. . .
I wanted the bonus from playing all the letters in one word.
It did not work.
Once more. . .
I quickly pulled out my six letters.
Pressed the send.
Pushed the button to say, “YES, I want to play this word.”
And then a scream of anguish.
I had played “enslave”
On the wrong “e”.
Not 48 points
A mere 18.
Attention to detail.
Real life importance of “word placement”.
A game I lost by 5.
And should have, could have, won by at least 30 points.
“Can I have a redo? Video instant replay? Do over?”
The difference between absolutely no “extra point tiles” or two “DW” tiles . . .
The difference between enslave for 18 points or 48 points.
One of my favorite pastimes – “Words with Friends”.
One of my most frustrating pastimes – “Words with Friends”.
