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

September 10, 2011

 

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.

OMG, I Can’t Wait For The HTC INCREDIBLE on April 29

April 23, 2010

This phone looks frickin’ awesome. And to have it on the best wireless network is even better. Yes, the iPhone is cool but I can’t get that. Besides, I like to be different! I want this phone NOW. But, alas, I will have to wait until April 29th to get my hands on it. I can’t even pre-order as my plan already has a data plan but I am using Wifey’s account to upgrade. Don’t want to buy a data plan for her as she won’t ever use it. So, 6 more days and then JOY! Check out this video to see why I’m geekin’ out!

Gone Fishin’ and Apparently So Has Verizon

April 6, 2010

Hey folks. Just wanted to update you on what’s been happening. Joe has had internet issues and I have started switching over to a new internet provider. Not to mention, that we are both on vacation this week. Joe has been working on the Honey DO list and gaming out on the Modern Warfare 2 expansion maps. I have been getting ready for the UVerse installer. I also have a bowling tournament in Vegas this week (all self respecting couch potatoes bowl). I have also been blowing people up in Modern Warfare 2 (no expansion for PS3 yet) as well as battling the gods in God of War 3! However, I have been keeping an eye out for the Nexus One, but it seems I may be leaning toward the HTC Incredible. Still waiting for Verizon to let one (or both) free into the wild. Lots of new rumors, including tweets from Verizon and screen shots from other entities associated with VZW that a release is on the Verizon Horizon (meaning sometime before we die). So we sit and wait.

Between the UVerse switch and getting my A$$ kicked in GoW3, we’ll have lots to discuss soon, so stay tuned!
