Scrabble Addiction: Word Wars

There’s something you will figure out about me soon enough, so I might as well put it out in the open now.  No, I don’t have any weird fetishes like Plushophilia (attraction to stuffed animals), Spectrophilia (attraction to ghosts),  or eproctophilia (fart fetish).

The truth is, I’m obsessed with Scrabble.  I play 3 games a day (usually online) and I spend my free time writing themed word lists about such things as Feudalism, Alcohol and Currency.  It’s a hobby and since it’s a mildly intelligent hobby I can justify it as not being a total waste of time..

A day well spent

So I was very excited when I learned about a movie focusing on Scrabble tournaments and the people who compete in them.  The movie is called Word Wars and is available to rent on Netflix.  It falls into one of my favorite movie genres: documentaries of people with weird, obsessive hobbies.  [tangent] If you have not seen the King of Kong: A fistful of Quarters see if NOW (it’s streaming on netflix) [/tangent]

Here’s the trailer for Word Wars:

  5. I’m impressed, I have to admit. Rarely do I encounter a blog that’s equally educative and amusing, and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The problem is an issue that too few men and women are speaking intelligently about. I’m very
    happy that I found this during my hunt for something concerning this.
