As I post this, I would have finished one more game of scrabble. I have been playing this game since childhood with my family. Those used to be the days of our special family get togethers where we either played Housie or Scrabble. Ahhhhhh…well I can write an entire book on those days but as we grew and all of us took our own paths, got busier with life day by day these special meetups began to decrease and eventually vanished. But thank God, my love for words never did!!!!!!!!!
Less did I know that Scrabble will be back in my life (but in a virtual avatar)…and trust me I am not complaining!!!!!!!! It’s been almost five months since I am playing this game regularly. Today I was playing with a stranger who was very cold and her remarks made me realise how I have enjoyed my time playing this game with my friends. They made the experience all the more enriched and memorable. And also, a series that I won with one of my friends and got two books as my WINNING TROPHY.
I really like this Commercial of Scrabble by Mattel…makes me laugh
In the End, I wrote this poem for a friend on our scrabble matches…I really miss those crazy days of back to back online matches
A scrabble board and some stakes
This is all what it takes !!!
TWO BINGOS and a BALTI
we also had Urvashi,Meneka and Malti ….
(read no other name of yours was rhyming 🙂 )
A book won… A board Lost …
It aches to think of opportunity cost …
Anyway,its a win-win situation …
The series was all joy & exhilaration!
And a pic of the live Match 🙂 🙂 🙂
