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.

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.
