I haven’t played scrabble for years but would like to restart during lockdown. Any recommendations please ? Also can I get a free download ? Thanks.

There are several free Scrabble games on Google play NanKate the ads can be annoying. I play Wordfeud with a group of regulars, we don't bother with the chat function just play multiple games.

I play Scrabble every day on my phone. It's actually called Classic Words and it's very easy to download the app.

I play online through Facebook.

Playing Scrabble on Facebook's keeping me sane at the moment, and it has the addition of being able to 'messenger' other players from across the world, making 'friends' and 'chatting'.

I too play Classic Words Free. I have it on my tablet and my phone. I've tried a few different ones, but in my opinion this is the best of them.

henetha Sun 29-Mar-20 10:00:31

I agree MiniMoon. It's brilliant.

Missfoodlove Sun 29-Mar-20 10:17:41

I play Words with Friends, also free.

I used to play Words with Friends, but gave up. My#1 son gavecme a link to Scrabble Go. It's similar but much better overall and you can play others or just against the game. It's a free download too.

May thanks girls. I have downloaded Classic Words and have already played 2 games.

I don't know how to get my statistics working but that doesn't really matter. I hope to upgrade from Easy in a week or so, just getting the feel of it.

An app that I use constantly on my phone and tablet is Upwords. It’s like Scrabble, but you can put letters on top of words that are already on the board in order to make a new word. Your opponent is the ‘computer’.

I play Wordfeud and Words with friends 2 I ve played that about 6/7 years got some regulars I play with
I totally avoid the chat except with one friend

sodapop Sun 29-Mar-20 17:37:15

I like Wordfeud better than Words with friends which I gave up. Since the lock down my regular partners are playing more games. I play Classic Words as well. My husband likes Sudoku but I don't do well with numbers.

Grammaretto Sun 29-Mar-20 17:38:11

I play scrabble online too. I sometimes have 20 games going at once as there's no time pressure. How decadent is that!
I'm convinced it's mostly luck.

Another vote here for Classic Words. You can alter the levels.

Pikachu Sun 29-Mar-20 18:29:27

Oops just read your update!

Another Words with Friends player here, looking for more players!

You might find me as Rachel H118 (or something like that, hopeless at remembering things like that!)

Used to play regularly with another GN member, but she's sadly not playing currently.

Lexulous. Free download. I play a solitaire game every morning.

NanKate Sun 29-Mar-20 21:03:36

Anyone know how I can get my stats working on classic words please ?

I will try Upwords too Sqiffy thanks.

crazyH Sun 29-Mar-20 21:12:10

I play Scrabble (the original green one) - you can download it directly or from the AppStore,

NanKate Sun 29-Mar-20 21:44:45

Thanks CrazyH I will try that one as well. I’m already becoming hooked on the game. 👍

Lisagran Sun 29-Mar-20 21:58:17

I just downloaded a Classic Words and won against the computer!

Ginny42 Sun 29-Mar-20 22:05:29

I play Classic Words and also like Scrabble Sprint available on Memory Improvement Tips.

I've just followed up some of these games and not one seems to be for a PC (Win 10)

Anyone know where I can get a PC version? Preferably to play solo.

BlueBelle Fri 03-Apr-20 06:20:46

phoenix I ve started a game with you hope I ve got the right person 😂
