Advantages Very addictive. Good game play. Fun.
Disadvantages Doesn't show your win loss record.
I've always been a fan of more intelligent games be they board games or the computer variety, so when I came across people in work playing words with friends on their iPads or smart phones I just had to download it and see what all the fuss was about.Words wi friends in a game develop by Zynga mobile and is basically scrabble by another name. There's a free version available which exults in an advert popping up after every move, or a advert free version costing £1.49. Now it has to be said the adverts can be tolerated by many people, however I hate them on any game or website so I definitely recommend paying the small price to get the advert free version. The game is available on iPad, iPhone or on android, but I play on the ipadversion as the screen is large enough for my poor eyes to see it properly!
The game plays exactly like scrabble, with th first word being played straight through the
As I said the game is basically scrabble and it works by logging in through Facebook and playing against your friends on there. Once you are logged in, you won't have to log in again, and you can invite your friends through it or choose to play against a random opponent if you so desire. You can also chat using the game which can be interesting if you are playing a random opponent. You can also choose to accept or decline game invites as they come in, and there is also a pass and play option to play against your friends in the same room by simply passing the iPad around.
The game itself ends when all of the tiles have been used up. The player who plays their last tile first gets a bonus score of the remaining tiles in the opponents hand added and the winner is unsurprisingly the player who has the highest score at the end. One of my major bug bears of this game has to be that there is no facility to give you or your friends a win loss record, so it's hard to decide whether to accept random requests as you are unsure of the quality of the opposition.
