Advantages: Community fun, chat while you play
Disadvantages: Highly addictive!, Frustrating when people know all those little "non" words
I have to admit it. "Wordox" has got me hooked.
If you like Scrabble, crosswords and all that jazz, you'll probably become a Wordox addict like me too.
The rules - being very similar (but NOT the same) as Scrabble, are easy to learn for players of the board game. You are presented with a whole screenful of "tables" you can either join or find an empty one to host a game on. Up to four players can join and you can choose your opponents by looking at their skill rating beside their handle.
There are two websites which host Wordox: - http://www.uproar.co.uk and http://uk.flipside.com
And...on the Flipside site, you can even play for points which you can later "gamble" for prizes.
Just never fall into the trap of "one more game, honest" or you'll be there all night.
What really gets on my wick, though, are all those silly little two letter words which don't seem to mean anything at all but are accepted by the adjudicating dictionary. AND all the people who seem to know them off by heart! Bah, humbug!
