Is it bad manners to resign? [Aug. 23rd, 2007|05:17 pm]

I've been playing Scrabulous (requires facebook login; it's a Scrabble® clone) a fair bit today. I've just offered a table to random passers-by, and found myself in a game with someone I don't know.

We've had six moves each, the score is 84 to 295, and he's resigned. I'm quite disappointed.

The last two words played were "EXIT" (22) and "BAbYISH" (108).

Ah well.

Have you noticed any blimps with it ? Like if the other player makes a word thru a triple letter score etc they get the score but then if the secod player puts a word thru the same bonus square they don't they the bonus. And if you run a word along another in real scrbble you'd have to make proper words both horizonalty and vertically, this seems to let you get away with random letters touching.

Ok, so I'm annoyed I'm loosing one of my games, I admit it !

Aha ! For a long time, I thought that the multiplier squares were counted everytime they were used - so you can use the double/triple word squares more than once, for example. Then I read the rules on the inside of the box ... and my Scrabble scores got a whole lot lower ...

Oh I thought so too. It's how I've always played real scrabble. That sucks !
