Scrabblette bought the very dodgy Super Sentence Cube Game on a trip to India, and recently insisted that we play it. I was pessimistic, but the worst that could happen would be that I would be so annoyed by it I would get into a ferocious rage and kill my family with a bladed garden tool and burn down the house and vote Liberal. So I decided to play.
It's quite difficult, because some of the words really suck. We played semi-cooperatively because we didn't really care who won, we were just having some fun. I lead out with:
WHO HELD A NEW GIRL WHEN YOU TOLD THEM TO STOP?
Scrabblette replied with:
A LEG HELD OUT AND HAD HIM UP.
and the kid chimed in with the very curious:
HOW HARD THE BIG WIFE GOT HIM.
We realised eventually that it's worth chasing the 50 point bonus for 7 word sentences, if you can, but since I was struggling to make one sentence, several of them were unlikely to happen. Scrabblette continued with:
I RAN DOWN THE ATER IN MY LADY WALK.
We don't know what an ATER is either. We decided it could be a wild. The kid continued with:
HE GAVE ME THE SMALL NEW LEG LATER.
I tried to catch up with:
SHE IS OUR WHITE LADY WIFE BUT THE OLD BABY ATE HER.
Scrabblette responded ferociously with:
HE GOT OUT SOME DIRTY PART WHERE SHE SAW MY GOOD BLACK FOOT.
I GAVE UP LIKE ANY OLD BOY.
STOP THIS BIG FOOT IN YOUR PART.
and romped to victory. I hope she never makes me play it again.
