It Seems Like Cheating

Yesterday I found this Scrabble word finder. I think it looks like it could be very handy, but it does almost seem like cheating. You can input all the letters in your Scrabble rack as well as the optional word pattern using letters and spaces already on the board. The word finder returns a list of all possible words sorted by score, length or alphabetically.

I was playing Scrabulous on Facebook recently and tried and tried to find a word that would use all my letters. I had the perfect place to put it, but I just couldn't figure anything out. I wonder if this would have helped me? Still, I'm not sure how I would feel about actually playing whatever word it found for me. That doesn't stop me from saving the link, just in case.

Just to give you a heads up Anna, I once was accused of cheating on Scrabulous... someone thought I was using one of these word generators. I wasn't, but that made me realize that many people consider this cheating.

By the way - I'd love to have you as one of my friends on Facebook!

Hmmm...Interesting. I just played my turn on a few Scrabulous games on Facebook and had a horrible time on one of them. Like you said, not sure how I'd feel about it, but it's worth checking out at least for fun!
