Back in the Game: 132 Points

Over the last several months, I've won a number of games on Words with Friends. I've lost a decent share, too. During that timeframe, I haven't played any huge words. Words that reach 70 or more points. Sure, I've played 50-60 point words. Those rack up points quickly, but they're not quite Enola-Gay-game-changer words.

That changed tonight.

I always have a game going against a former coworker and current neighbor. She's tough. I'll even say she's a fantastic player. Quite often I find myself in the loser column after games with her. I hate to sound vengeful, but it felt great to play SWIMS/JETS with a triple word on the "S" and a triple letter on the "J" this evening.

Yes, that was worth 132 points.

Is this game an Android App? My phone runs Android Apps and I don't remember seeing this game; however, I only load Free Apps.

It works on droids. I have a droid phone and it is a free app.

Hey Bill, I am trying to play with you but I am having a problem, I can't move the letters. Are there instructions in the game?

You just drag and drop. That's how it works on an iPhone.

Nicely done! My personal best was juicers across two double word scores and I do believe the j was on a triple or double letter. That one got me almost 200 points. I haven't gotten too close to that since though. lol

Almost 200? Great play. It's all about letter placement.

I have become hooked on this game. Now along with Daily Crossword Puzzles, I may not be able to leave the house. However, it appears that most of the activity is after working hours because I know that none of my playing partners would dare to do frivilous things on employer time.
