Michelle and I went to Starbucks the other day whilst out running errands to hang out, do a little work, and play Scrabble. I actually used to play Scrabble really frequently with Heather back in the day, so it was fun to play again. I play Words with Friends all the time, but that's different; you can't fondle the letters.

It's worth learning the possible 2-letter words if you're a serious player; likewise, knowing that "QI," "QINTAR" and "QWERTY" are legal plays is useful. If you can't play, or everything you could play sucks, you can swap letters. Play goes until one player has no letters left, and then the other player(s) subtracts the value of their remaining letters from their score.
