My Favourite Game

25 Oct

Being a writer, is it really surprising that my favourite game revolves around words?

Yes, it’s Scrabble: the challenge to maximise your points-score with words.

I discovered it when I was quite young, about ten or so, and my parents encouraged my interest. An especially fine, one-to-one game, there were however times when I’d pit my skills against a couple of players.

Even into her declining years, my late mother loved to take up the challenge against me, and heartily rejoiced when she was the victor. Our games often lingered since neither of us gave up without exhausting our brains, scrounging for an elusive bonus score!

Our well-worn dictionary testifies to its status as umpire!
