It's All a Game

I like to play online scrabble, but I prefer the email version where everyone gets to play on their own time. The version I like isn't working right now, so I've been playing 'live' against the computer. I can win about half the time or better, depending on what level of play I put the 'bot' on. I decided to play with a live opponent and got my butt kicked in two different games by two different players already this morning. One of the games even timed out because I was going back and forth between the game and myLot - ouch! They also have what they call a 'blitz' and I didn't have a clue how that worked so I basically stared at the playing board saying 'huh?' and I lost my shirt. I wonder if I'll be invited back? I'm going back to play with the 'bot. What sort of online games do you like to play? Do you multi-task while playing? Does you get beat up as badly as I did when you do?

I've been on yahoo games and played literati, its like scrabble and its pretty fun. I've played against people from all over the world. I've made some friends too that I keep and play against when I just want to veg out or have some fun. If I ever have trouble then I'll ask somebody what something means.

Hmm, I used to play literati too. I wonder how I lost that one?

If I try to multi-task then I can't play that well, at all. I can only do one thing at a time on comp. and here at home as well. I'm a little slow so that doesn't help and I have ADD. Caused by my meds. For epilspy. So I just do one thing at a time and hope for the best.And I find the best most day's if not I punt. Or fake it. I play this game where you get points to get things. It's fun I more or less like to help other people. Have a nice day.

Do you know what scrabble is? You get 7 letters and you have to make words on a board, and each one has to interconnect somehow with a word that is already there. I'm surprised you don't have it or something similar in the UK.

Hi Ldyjarhead, Yes we do have scrabble and my friends used to play but I never did, as for being,on the net I'll be lost, its just one of the games I've never played, maybe I should but a set for Chrismas. Tamara

I like to play backgammon, different kinds of mahjong, jewel quest, solitaire. I love playing on Pogo, being a member there i still learn different games through the weekly challenges they have. Yes, i usually do checking my emails while playing a game. Sometime a would be through out of a game because i'm to late. LOL

I like mahjong too, but haven't been able to find one that I really like. I had one several years ago, but not sure where it is.

OMG I love playing games against people online. I used to play all the time but I can't do anything else or I am unable to pay attention and I lose. I use yahoo to play. Are there any other good sites to use?

I am always multitasking every day of the week. I hardly ever have time to play games online while working online though. I do sometimes. I win some and lose some. It all depends on my luck for that day.

I'm going to stick with the 'bot for scrabble for now until the email version is running again. I usually do pretty well, but I got my butt handed to me yesterday.

Hey LdyJ! I didn't know about scrabble online! I'm sure I'd get the dodo kicked out of me too! I have played online checkers quite a bit. Sometimes I win, sometimes not! I haven't played in a while. It got kind of boring after awhile. Checkers is checkers! But, if you get bored and you start not paying close enough attention then you can easily get beat! So where is it that you go to play scrabble? I'm not sure that I would dare. I definitely wouldn't try a human only a 'bot to start. Lately I'm forgetting how to spell and I don't know why! So I would definitely have to start out slowly.

It used to be scrabulous.com but now it is lexulous.com (I believe that's how it is spelled). I decided I don't like the 'live' games with the real opponent - too much pressure! I do very well with the email version and the 'bot, though. Oh, and these games won't let you play a word that isn't a word. I LOVE that feature! You can put all sorts of real combinations and you'd be surprised at what it will accept as a word.

I've never played solitaire against an opponent, that sounds interesting. I know there are other game sites out there, but I loved this email version of scrabble. No pressure to play in a given time frame, you just played your word when you got email that it was your turn.

I play one of the games on Winster every morning. The prizes you can earn are mostly simple Amazon gift certificates, movie tickets, etc. But initially the first one is 500 points in Mypoints. It involves usually 4 other players and is very friendly as we help out each other get points. I found it addicting, but would not lose much sleep if I had to give it up. Also Prize Village has some fun games, but they are just for fun, you don't get anything for playing...just keeping your brain active. lol

I've looked at Winster before, maybe I should give it another look. It would be nice to get something for my time.

I have not been able to play against the computer yet. Maybe I will be able to after I get the DSL up and running by the end of this week, I have really been thinking that I would love to play the e-mail version again, i am not sure when they will have that up and running,, * Soon I hope*

I've been checking every day for the email version, and nothing yet. There are a lot of things on the site right now that aren't working, and I hope they get it together soon. Got my butt kicked bit time on the two live games I played, although me and the 'bot are becoming friends.

I like playing word games. I really like scrabble. Other games I like are like bingo or slingo. I haven't played many games online lately tho. Been too busy with mylot and other things lol. Whenever my family gets together, we always get out some board games. I like any kind of game really but mostly games that make me think. I'm not very good at them but I try LOL.

I enjoyed our email scrabble games, but they moved the site to something else. You can play real time or with the 'bot, but the email version is still down.

I play at this site Winster and I either play the Slot Social or Spell Squad. Spelling is where you spin 12 letters and try to come up with words on it. You can trade with your neighbors, etc. I can get prizes for turning in points. I really like that site. Yes, I multi-task reading e-mails or doing surveys at the same time I am playing the games. I love to multi-task! [b][i] Have a great day and happy myLotting!!![/i] [/b]

I do like online games too Ldyjarhead but I never have played scrabble online though. I really like to play Mah-Jong. Lately, I have been playing some of the free games offered on MyPoints. I got into playing "Wheel of Fortune" when they had a special promotion going on last week when they allowed you to play 5 "Wheel of Fortune" games for free each day for the chance to win money. Of course, I did not win anything... didn't even come close but it was really fun and relaxing too. I find that playing games on the computer, whether online or offline, is real relaxing. It is a nice break from the hectic day of doing errands and chores around the house. Oh, and I do get my butt kicked a lot of the time too, but sometimes I win! If I am playing games I do not usually do anything else online though at the same time. Happy game playing & myLotting!
