Super Scrabble CRAZY!!




Okay...so we like Scrabble!!! Well, Sweetie Man likes it and now I'm hooked! We've been playing the regular one but then last night pulled out the SUPER SCRABBLE!!! That game is INSANE!!! I mean really...the point values are crazy!!! Quadruple Points for one letter???? What's up with that? Not to mention the board is double in size...the letter bag takes two hands to lift ...and it takes almost three hours to play the thing! We were determined to finish it and actually brought out a light onto the front porch and the bug zapper till it was over. For awhile I was multi-tasking and cross stitching while I was playing! I did beat the Sweetie Man which I still can't believe I did...I think he is letting me beat him since I'm the only one who plays it with him and he doesn't want me to give up saying I never win! He is way way better at words then I am! I mean, he can unscrabble jumble puzzles in the dark...okay, well he probably could! Anyway, it was fun and with the Sweetie Man home for a week on a well-deserved vacation, I'm sure there will be a few more games in our near future.
I do have to tell you that I found a pattern for a scrabble board cross stitch but I can't seem to download it....if any of you know of one that is easy to download, let me know. I have seen the Monopoly one but I'm really not into that game!
Well that's about it for now....till next time Y-I-N-Z C-R-A-Z-Y G-U-Y-S.....

I've never heard of SUPER Scrabble. I'm going to have to look for it and five it to my friend for Christmas. She's a huge Scrabble fan. I'm dyslexic so its not on my list of games I enjoy. I find it hard on my nerves...cause spelling counts. lol, I do play it though.

We are crazy about Scrabble here too!!! We play without mercy - I mean, we do not help each other at all! I had no idea about the Super one.

I love playing scrabble. I haven't seen this game yet. Is it worth buying?

We like Scrabble here. We have regular Scrabble we HAD a 'Scrabble Up' game (stacking letters up on top of the existing words), and I had a kids Scrabble Jr, which I LOVED. It helps them learning to spell, etc... Super Scrabble sounds 'super' confusing. ;P lol

I didn't even know there was a Super Scrabble! I have two regular size boards, and a travel one. LOL - Yes, only one can be played at a time!

Lucy, I'm glad there are others who are so "into" Scrabble. My parents play frequently and are members of the national something-or-other and play tournament Scrabble on Sundays! When you find the XS pattern, let me know!

I am addicted to playing scrabble online, on pogo.com. And I love cross stitch. So would love to know about the pattern you found but had problems downloading? Maybe I could download for both of us :)

Could you please post the website for the Scrabble Cross Stitch pattern? We've been hunting high and low for one.
