Information That Could Save You A Turn

My wife and I like to play "Scrabble". Sure it's not as involved as those cool games Phollower plays, but we are able to finish 3-4 games in less than 8 hours, unlike certain games based on German parliamentary maneuvering. Last night I discovered something that anyone else interested in playing Scrabble might want to keep in mind.

"Clit" does not count as a dictionary-recognized word.

I tired to play it, leading to the following:

Me: "I'm pretty sure that counts"

Her: "I'd challenge it, but it's sort of turning me on"

See, that's why I can't play scrabble...my mind always wanders to dark places not found in dictionaries. Now if there was a naughty version, I'd be all over that shit.

Those are the kind of fun and games I like to play.

...but you probably already knew that.

So, essentially you've created a new rule of play: "If the disputed word conjurs something appealing to the player in position to dispute the word, such player may, at his or her option, allow the word, which allowance then obligates the player proposing such word to fulfill the 'something appealing' upon conclusion of the game, or earlier upon mutual consent of the players." So see Syd? With the new rule, "poontang" is fine, so long as you follow through.

we've been known to play dirty word scrabble after a few drinks. just don't let the kiddies see the board!

I think that is because it's an abbreviation. Dumb rules, I like Eclectics better.

I would have to recognize it as a word, or my husband would never recognize it as a tool for foreplay ever again.

Sounds fair to me.

CP.

I've said it before: Your wife is way cool.

You're pretty cool too.

(sorry, after CP's comment, I'm lost for words.)

I think you should start using Syd's Dictionary.

She found 'warrioress' right above a singles ad for Big Beauties.

I play scrabble with myh mom.
Chances are I won't be trying to use that word.

Maybe it is worth losing the points for...

mmm...I've looked this up in my Oxford Dictionary/Thesaurus the the word "clit" is not in there.

However, clitoris IS.

I think and HOPE all you men out there know what it means.

I REALLY do.

Well played. And much more entertaining than my attempt to use "Tivo", while unsuccessfully arguing that it is now part of common lexicon (like kleenex).

Besides, Tivo doesn't get you laid.

Tysgirl, that's why we play aftert he kids go to bed.

Zoe, I followed it up with "oral". Yes, everyone won.

Syd, it is at our house.

Mel, Scrabble just screams fun anyway.

PG, as Claude Rains might say, "I am shocked, shocked to find that you like those kinds of games". Yes, I recently saw 'Casablanca', why do you ask?

Eclectic, and they say lawyers aren't helpful.

Babs, oh, we erase the board pretty quickly.

RSG, that's exactly it. "Clitoris" is legal, and also worth more points, but I didn't have the letters.

CP, Hotband takes his Scrabble that seriously?

Lil Sis, yes, that she is. Not sure about me, but thanks anyway.

Maggie, there are so many comments rushing through my head at the idea of Syd's Dictionary and/or her cruising through the Big Beuaties sections of the singles ads that words fail and I must walk away.

Tai, yeah, I'll bet if your Mom had the letters and a triple word score option she'd bounce that bad boy right off you and take the points.

JDR, yeah, some things take precedence over points.

Lady K, of course I know what a clitoris is!! It's a mythological beast like unicorns, elves and eskimos. (With thanks to Homer Simpson)

Pug, I'd have given you credit for "Tivo", but I have to agree, it's not getting you laid. Unless you "Tivo" late-night movies on Cinemax. Then you've got a shot.

LOL! - and that's why you 2 should playing SEXY Scrabble... only naughty words. ONLY.

Everybody enjoys a nice game of Scrabble once in a while. Did your copy of Pick Picknic arrive yet? Oh, sorry, that's one of those "involved" games. You'll have to grab a copy of Zach and Cody-opoly to hold you over.

Really though, get Pick Picknic for the kids. And after they're in bed you'll turn it into a drinking game in no time.

Wait a minute. I just re-read your post and you called the games I play "cool".

You don't read my blog at all, do you?

I used to play Scrabble with my ex-wife. To the best of my memory, it never turned either of us on. Of course, my ex might turn over the board when she was losing.

Ooooooo.... Scrabble with nothing but sex related words.... now THAT could actually make the boring game of Scrabble a bit more interesting.

why stop at sexy scrabble when you can have pornographic pictionary...
there must be more

Sounds like you won either way, so what's the problem here?

Clit playing should always be allowed. Actually, I think it should be mandatory... I don't care what game it is.
