How can you get it so wrong?
How dare they destroy our games, change the board, the rules and the dictionaries!
How dare they assume that no one could care less.
Someone at Facebook/Scrabble/Mattel decided that they knew what we all needed (here...may or may not link) But it seems that they were wrong.
And the world of Scrabble players is furious.
Well I am.
How dare they tell me that ZO is not a word.
Even if it is not then everyone knows that zho and zoh are words. Haven't these people ever heard of SOWPODS.
And indeed how can you offer an internet Scrabble which doesn't know of the official tournament standards (except in US, Thailand and Canada.....maybe that's it and this is all about North American Imperialism!!)
Any way...we are mad...and we are not going to take it.
Meanwhile outside...it is 4.49 p.m.
The South Australian sky is golden
as it gets just before the twilight (such as it is in the Southern Hemisphere)....
and I am thinking
"Scrabble, Scrabble? God's in her heaven and there is a lot more to life than Scrabble!"
Mind you, Harry and Lily (aka Dad and Mum) played at least six games a day. But they loved the golden sky too!.
