Scrabble is one of my favorite games. On New Year's Eve I had the pleasure of playing it with my 17 year old son as our family watched the New Year's festivities on TV.
This is the board when we were finished. I won, but just by a few points.
For you Scrabble players, it's a nice board, isn't it? Pretty spread out.
Why do I like Scrabble?
1. I like words. I like putting them together. I like thinking about them.
2. You learn new words when you play Scrabble. (and you try to make up new words:-)
3. It's a slow game. There is time to think. And because there is time to think, there is also time to talk. It's more social than other games.
4. It exercises the mind. This is good.
Any other favorite games out there?
