The other beautiful game

I refer, of course, to Scrabble, or at least Lexulous, an online version that is close enough to the original. I'm involved in a couple of ongoing games via e-mail and would welcome one or two more, should any forum members be so inclined.
All I need is an e-mail address.

Humph! I just noticed I never got a single response to this. Tough to believe I'm the only scrabble enthusiast in this group.

Perhaps no-one realised it was you, Joe.  

I do like Scrabble, but my participation in an online game would be erratic and/or intermittent.  I don't have one of those devices which I can have by my side the whole time - I use a desktop PC and have to decide to go on it, then stop and do something else, then come back another day.

Erratic and intermittent exactly describes how scrabble via e-mail proceeds. It's the beauty of it. There are also 'real time' games, but I have no use for them. The e-mail variety can stretch over many days, which works very well as long as the players are agreeable.

Hi Joe, I play Lexulous on Facebook which is nearly scrabble. However I am not a specially skilled player and usually participate to enable my sister to beat me!
