Scrabble is one of the few games I loaded so far on my iPhone. I play it on the bus that takes us to work and back, and I play against the phone’s little brains. I would say the phone cheats sometimes, with words such as REEARNED and QWERTYS, but then I instruct it to help me : ). FLAMINGO and CANISTER are my 7-letter words .. two in one game is very nice to get. The phone is very tactful : you never lose (loo-ser!), the phone finishes ‘first’ and you ‘finish second’. I haven’t tried to find a player over the internet, or even someone to play on the phone. (Two persons with two phones can also play with a shared board on each of the phones). Very nice.
Here is a short list explaining some if the unusual words on the board.
PEPLA- pl. of peplum, a flounce or short, flared flap attached at the waist of a dress, blouse, coat
URANIAS – pl. of urania, uranium dioxide
BUNCO – a game played with dice
QWERTYS – pertaining to a keyboard having the keys in traditional typewriter arrangement
