Words With Friends: Competitive AND Sexy!

Yes, I'm proud to say I slack off with my phone more than I use it for meaningful and productive purposes.

But you probably do too, so don't judge me.

I'm a big Words With Friends nut, and usually have about a half dozen games in progress.  It's fun to play, easy to do on the road or while doing some other task...

...and I'm good at it.

I'm not one of those that uses a cheater application (I think those are all on the iPhone anyway) but I have been known to throw down some random letters, just to see if it spells something valid.  All in all, I try to play the game in an honorable way.

And I win.  A lot.

Usually by a landslide...


I do have one friend, however, who is my equal.  Her and I trade off wins fairly consistently, and I can never dominate her (nor can she dominate me).

The best part of playing with her are the conversations we have.  We use the chat function fairly often, and always joke about the words we spell, or just generally talk smack to each other.

Every now and then, things get a little flirty.  Someone spells 'orgasm' or 'bush' and the chuckles start.  The conversation quickly goes south, and we start discussing:

- Who is 'on top' of whom at the moment
- How 'big' the words are...
- If we are spelling words to deliberately flirt with each other (like if I spell 'pound' or she spells 'shaved')

Her and I have been friends for about 5 years, and sometimes our conversations get fairly R rated.  Luckily we're both in meaningful relationships and know that nothing is ever going to happen, but sometimes the wordplay makes a person wonder.  (It also helps that we're thousands of miles apart, so drunken hookups are much more difficult).

Her and I get busy with our normal lives from time to time.  Sometimes, we can play with each other all day (*snnnrk*) and other times it's days between moves.

When there is a pause, I sometimes look back at our chat sessions... did I say something that crossed a line?  Was it too much, did I scare her away?

Funny thing is, she admittedly wonders the same thing too.  Truth is, we just get busy, but you never quite know when you've said something and taken things too far.

Do you flirt a lot when playing games like this?  I tried doing it in other games, like Hanging With Friends, but have found it tough trying to talk sexy...


...when you're both hanging over a pit of lava...

Oh, and if you're ever bored and want to start a WWF game with me, my screen name is Idahomie.  COME AT ME, BRO.
Please Share it! :)

You are FABULOUS at kicking my ass.

Brandon Lostinidaho said...

Haha, thank you dear. But your beat-downs aren't as bad as others' so don't feel too bad!

...speaking of, it's my turn isn't it?

The Simple Dude said...

Most of my verbalization is done though grunts and mumblings, so people in my real life assume I'd be bad at Words With Friends.

But then again those people don't know about my anonymous online shenanigans. So it's fun to lie in the weeds and then slap a 300 point win on some fool.

Thank, Q said...

LOL @ Auto correction! I played WwF for about two weeks and got sick of my friends cheating. I had friends that I knew weren't smart enough to come up with certain words using apps to beat me. So, I stopped playing. Never had inappropriate conversations though. LOL! Maybe I'd still be playing if I did.

Electric Addict said...

easily one of the more addictive games you can play! you should write a guide for helping noobs reach imba 500 scores haha =)

Crack You Whip said...

I have never played Words with Friends but have had conversations that go South pretty quick and I had to push them back North again.

Melanie said...

I am completely addicted to that game! And I ducking hate auto correct.

Bozo said...

I've been playing scrabble online but haven't tried WWFs yet. Flirting depends on whom I'm playing with... but if there's a fun person on the other end - then why not!

Shutterbug said...

I love word games! ;)

AccordingtoJewels said...

lol *hey I meant hey. That killed me.

I usually do a lot of flirting in those games as well but usually go for points over spelling out a naughty word unless it's turned to "that type of game" lol. I'm new to the whole words with friends and while getting better still lose my fair share. I'm totally looking you up though. Bring it.

G said...

I'm both awful at word games and flirting...

Southern Lady said...

I have definitely flirted during WWF, but it was with a man I flirted with on Twitter and then email and then texting... you get the point. LoL I've never flirted with a complete WWF stranger before. I think I would worry that he was married or something.

Pish Posh said...

She and I

She and I

She and I

She and I

Not her and I.

Anyway, so yeah.... what's awkward about this is that there are flirty words and such - but they are my cousins. But um, seriously, they're hot and so am I,so, you know. It has to seep out here and there.

Try Draw Something!!

Brandon Lostinidaho said...

I love Draw Something!

And congrats on catching the typo. You win one free internet!!

Pish Posh said...

Yea that Pish Posh lady is an a-hole.

English teachers. Biggest jerks ever. It's like they can't stop themselves. Nobody likes English teachers.

Seriously.

Nobody.

Michael said...

I flirt with a friend in Draw Something. It's much more suggestive. I play Words With Friends regularly but apparently need to read a dictionary. I can play good words but never seem to win.

Hey Monkey Butt said...
