If you enjoy working your brain and meeting new people, why not join your local Scrabble club?
In an era in which online gaming and social networking has rendered many experiences soulless, you might be surprised to rediscover just how pleasurable it is playing with pieces you can actually touch against people you can actually see.
Invented in 1938, Scrabble is a fantastic game, because it involves just the right blend of skill and luck. While you might not be the greatest wordsmith, picking up the right tiles can make a lot of difference.
As with all things in life, practice makes perfect. The more you begin thinking about letters and words, the more confident you'll become with them. And there is also a surprising amount of strategy involved in Scrabble, which means that as you gain experience, you'll become better at controlling the board, piggybacking off your opponent and exploiting the bonus squares.
Scrabble is a great mind game played either online or Live. With online scrabble now available, you can put your mind to the test with many friends in different locations all at once. Great game, great post.
