Lexulous (Similar to Scrabble®)

We've had a good time playing this online version of the familiar Scrabble® word game. We play at https://www.lexulous.com/


How to Host a Game . . . [Adapted from https://forum.lexulous.com/topic/571/live-games]

  1. Login to the website at https://www.lexulous.com and visit the PLAY LIVE section from the top menu.
  2. To host a game, click on the NEW GAME button and set the parameters. We offer multiple parameters - Number of players, Choice of dictionary, Game type, Duration, Rated Games, and Time increments after each turn. Click on Set Table. Now your game is available to other players for joining.
  3. Clcik on hamburger icon at upper right, then "Invite friends." You can have Lexulous send invites or do it yourself.
  4. When people request to join your game and you accept, the game will start immediately.
  5. In case you setup a 3 or 4 player table, you will get an information screen where it shows you who has already joined and which slots are open for others to join.

Joking Around with Sara

Sara says:
"I / we love to laugh! How about you?
Join us for an hour -- we'll tell jokes & laugh together.
Come prepared with a joke or 2.  No jokes? Then just come prepared to laugh!
Let's have some fun!"
