word games

Amazingly, over this last break we played no Scrabble. We did, however, play a lot of Boggle[Wiki], which makes WEBoggle interesting, and the Sensible Erection entry that pointed me there has some strategy tips.

And we played the "oh so close to a good game, but..." "Parker Brothers Option", a word game from 1982 or so. Played with tiles that have a letter on either side, you get points for flipping letters in existing words if you can play off thatword. Unfortunately, this massively unbalances the game. We might try again, but if so we'll be playing a hellacious defensive game.

I'm not sure I fully follow the your description of the PB game, but it sounds like it might have similar elements to Snatch. We keep a tube at work for lunch-time games.

Thanks! I think we need that.
