I have barely played Scrabble. And yet, it has always been one of my favourite board games simply because I enjoy testing my vocabulary. While I have played the odd game or two during childhood it is only in recent times that I got more opportunities to play Scrabble. I remember the uproarious fun I had in Scotland when I played the game with SM, and another girl we just met there in the common room. The couple of times I played with my sister-in-law and brother-in-law. And yesterday, there were more Scrabble memories created when my husband, my mother-in-law, and I played one board. I didn’t win any of these games. But then times like these, I don’t play to win. It’s the sheer joy of playing with good company that makes it fun even if I am losing.
