"O" is for Obesession

I think Hubs and I officially achieved "old married couple" status over the Christmas holidays when we realized our mutual love for Scrabble. We haven't stopped playing since--at least once a week, but often more than that!

Scrabble trivia: Did you know that 1 in 3 American families owns a Scrabble game?

My fiancé and I love Scrabble, too! Although we have to play Scrabulous online most of the time since we're in different cities...

We LOVE Scrabble, too! Have you ever played speed Scrabble?

How fun you guys love Scrabble! Scrabulous on FaceBook is actually a common obsession in NGO-land. No kidding, I have one friend who at any given time might have 4 or 5 games going with various friends around the world. The big question: do you two allow use of the dictionary while playing??

I love playing Scrabulous on Facebook with friends across town and friends across the world. :)

I haven't played Scrabble in a few years....should pull that one out of the closet soon, I'm thinking. ;)

We own a game - the one YOU gave us!

DUDE! We TOTALLY just bought Scrabble a few months ago, and we are ADDICTED!! I LOVE that there is another married couple who are addicted, as well!!! Patrick is really good at kicking my butt in the last 5 minutes of the game, so I have yet to actually WIN a game. I think he just "lets" me win for awhile to make me feel better about my vocabulary:)

When my grandparents were alive, every Saturday night they'd drink champagne and play scrabble. It's a nice tradition I'd like to do as well :)

We love to play it at our house. My daughter is the best.

How have I never heard of Scrabulous? I've got to check it out!

Hubs and I do allow the use of the dictionary, but only to challenge words, not to spell our own.

We never have played speed Scrabble together, but I played years ago with my friend back home and remember it being a lot of fun!

I'm glad to see there are so many fans out there!

AM-I think your grandparents tradition is so much fun, and worthy of carrying on!
