Hubby was in considerable pain after a trip to Wells yesterday which took over an hour to return from, so MOH and I played against each other while he had a rest.
I was plagued with nothing but vowels so could only put down one or two letters at a time. MOH put down seven letter words twice in a row and was over 200 points ahead whilst I had yet another rack of vowels, so I conceded the game and went to get dinner.
Of the 100 tiles, 42 are vowels, 56 are consonants plus 2 blanks but even they evaded me.
Today we have played again, but this time changed the rules a little to relate to a theme based on whatever the first word was that was laid down.
This has had hilarious results as we’ve had kaput toilets, wastage in cities where cranes are manned by berks and idiots, plus singers in arenas. We lost the plot a bit on one game, but our scores overall were actually pretty decent.
After dinner, a chicken curry that went drastically wrong and ended up being a rinsed sweet and sour, we had three normal games, not one of which had a joint score over 600.
We are now chilling out in front of The Box watching a rather naff 2008 TV Movie called Warbirds as we all merrily tap away on our PCs.
Apart from pterodactyls and female pilots with perfectly pressed uniforms, immaculate makeup and polished nails, don’t ask me what the story is!
