Curiosity Question: I LOVE to read (obviously) but; I also LOVE to play Scrabble. My daughter loves to read and LOVES to play Scrabble. (She placed 6th in the New England Scrabble Championships some years back) My question is:

How many Kindle users also love word games such as Scrabble or Crosswords...etc. I think there is a link between loving to read and loving word type activities...YES; NO; MAYBE? Anyone else love Scrabble?

I love Scrabble.  And British-style ("cryptic") crosswords.  But though we own a game, LR won't play Scrabble with me.  :'(

At least, not a second time.

sjc--you posted duplicate threads in two different topics.  I reported it to the Mods, so they can clean them up and combine them.

It would be nice but I just can't see any way that they could make it work on a Kindle. The scroll wheel only goes up and down and not right to left so I don't know how that could work.

I had a crossword puzzle published in the New York Times. It was a Monday puzzle (easy). I think it was Monday Sept 23 2002 but I might be off by a year.

I have always loved crosswords and I play a lot of word games on the computer.  Yes, I think this is a natural extension of a love of reading.

It's like when you play the minesweeper game on Kindle <don't ask :)> you use the letter keys to do the moving side to side.

Oh, okay. I forgot all about that game. I'll have to take a look at it. Thanks!

No, you don't want to play it...that was my point. It is slow and it froze my Kindle. Make sure you have something to unfreeze it, just in case. I wouldn't try to play it again; I'll just stick to reading on it.
