Game.com active! - Scrabble



I played the computer on Intermediate level on a game of Scrabble for the Game.com. I won, 351-250. I kind of forgot my opponent's score even though I just played it. I had no opportunity for a bingo until near the end. I had the letters blank, U, T. Looking through the Scrabble Dictionary I have on hand (to aid in word forming and to check if my opponent's words, which usually are very obscure, are valid), many words began with OUT. I had a T to form the word TO from the word TINCT I had placed earlier. Nothing fit, until I got the letters I needed to spell OUTLINE. So I did. It saluted me with fireworks and a little animation for my achievement. And then I went on to win.


A strange thing is the end of the game and how it's programmed in. It should have ended the game automatically since I ran out of tiles. But it came to my turn. I didn't have any tiles. What do I do? I passed. The computer passed again for the second time in a row and then I was declared the winner. Another hour written in the history books. I am wondering if I should go on to review all the game.com games since I have the complete library. I even have the Game.com Internet and Web Link cartridges for no reason even though I don't have a web link or internet thingy for the Game.com.


It had been a long time since I played the thing. I keep it next to my bed along with a Game Gear and a huge keyboard with stand. So it had dust all over it. I live in a quite dusty place. When something doesn't get moved, it accumulates quite rapidly.
