    So, I play...not through the Facefriend, but on my ipod, and I am just blown away by the number of "words" that I didn't think were words. Last night, for funsies, out of despiration, I played the word "gloze" against my SIL for 56 pts. I do not use any of those word generating apps or anything. I can lose with grace. Anyone else play? Anyone else been hit with a word that "just ain't a word"? My wife plays through Facefriend and always accuses everyone of cheating. Its hilarious.

    I find it difficult to string a complete and comprehensive sentence together. I am not going to torture myself any more than I need to. Well that, and I cheat.

    We have 3 different games going with different family members every night while watching tv. We use the instant message feature to nag each other.

    I've seen some words go up that I can't imagine how they even thought of them. The cheats apps must be in use. It is fun though. It won't let you use certain body part words although medically acceptable and in my opinion, ok to use. Is there an adult version?

    My wife says the same. After she tells me the words they're playing, I believe her. I don't play.

    I went to school and majored in Communications . . . and for my job I often "lecture" . . . in the past I have had some folks call me a "Word Smith" . . . but for some reason when it comes to Scrabble and these sorts of games about the only types of words I can come up with are words like "dog", "cat", "the", etc. My wife wins every time.

    Maybe we can help you out here Jake. I will give you a few 4 letter words! "wood" "stove" "logs" fire" ! See that wasn't to bad, maybe somebody can come up with some 5 letter words!:)

    Maybe we could even have WOTW (word of the week) for you!;)

    We had WOTW already (well kinda)...only went on for a lil bit...
    It was a positive "word" thread by Kat and we morphed it into a WOTW..==c
    well actually it was BB that morphed it.....;lol
    It was his fault that the thread ended...:mad:

    Bev plays.
    Some of the words that pop up on there are just weird. She seems to be having fun with it though.
    Gary, I thought "Hold my beer and watch this" was a four letter word in Michigan.:cool:
    Just to stir the pot......face and cord are 2, 4 letter words.;)

    My 92 year old MIL plays crosswords constantly.......I should probably take 'em up sometime in the next couple of decades...might keep the old mind fresh.

    Avid WTF, player.... I usually have 3-6 games going at once. It does get you thinking :)

    Some of the "words" are not "words", IMHO.
