Words With Spuds (How you SHOULD be playing Words With Friends)

 

I  haven’t been playing Words With Friends long, but I’m already addicted. Yet also burned out. Burned out on words like QI, QIS and fucking QAT all landing on a triple word tile. After playing this game for a week or so, we came up with a new way to play –the Couch Potato Podcast Way.

Here are the rules:

1. You can only use words from Movie titles.
1a. You can only use the FIRST or LAST word from the title. If the movie starts with “A”, “The”, An”, etc.. use the second & last word.

Examples:
Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels” – Playable words are LOCK & BARRELS. First and last, see how easy it is?
The Hunt for Red October” – Playable words are HUNT & OCTOBER.
TITAN A.E” – Playable words are TITAN & AE (Yes, AE works in WWF).

2. If you can’t make a word you have to PASS or SWAP your letters. 

3. If you use a word that doesn’t comply with rule #1, you skip 2 turns. No swapping letters, just PASS.

4. Use the chat window to call out the title you’re playing. Movies only. 

At any rate, that’s how we play. How do you play? Do you have your own House Rules when it comes to WWF? Sound off in the comment section below or e-mail us couchpotatocast@gmail.com.

6 Reasons We Don’t Have a New Episode (YET)

Hello Spud-nation!

Jeff and I have been trying very hard to record and release an episode for you guys. We’ve tried several times in the last two weeks, but LIFE has reared it’s ugly head a few times too many. So here’s SIX (semi-good) reasons we haven’t released an episode yet:

  • PEOPLE: They keep wanting to socialize with Joe on prime-time recording nights, making it impossible to sit down w/ Jeff.
  • MODERATION: While socializing in the real world, Joe sometimes forgets the “Liquor before Beer” rule. This renders him “inaudible”, for lack of a better word.
  • SPACE-TIME CONTINUUM: Joe’s in Atlanta, and Jeff is in California. The 3 hour time difference SUCKS. (Jeff can’t get drunk at 12pm -well, he could… but that would suck).
  • RIFT: It’s a game, and it’s incredibly addictive.
  • BATTERIES: Fuck batteries. I’ll explain: We were 50% through episode 40 and the battery on Joe’s recording device died somewhere in the middle of a rant.
  • QUALITY: We could release a fluffed 30 minute episode where we talk about the wonderful flavors of Sobe waters and go on & on about “How awesome BSG toast tastes (spit-slur)”. But we won’t do that to you guys. Our Spuds deserve only the finest, high-quality drunk discussions two guys ever had over the interwebs.
But don’t worry, Spuds. We’re saying “fuck it!” to the cosmos and getting shit done. We’ve got some great stuff coming up. So hang in there, grab a beer and pull up some couch -because THE SPUDS ARE BACK!
RISE UP, SPUD ARMY! RISE UP!
