Scrabble in Hebrew!

Here's the way the board looked at the end of the game.

Looks like you were having a wonderful time. My dogs are very jealous and have begged me to get out the scrabble board.

We really did have a lot of fun. Gucci, the poodle, belongs to Danny. My dog was happy to lie under the table, guarding her food.

John said...

I always miss the fun! Ugh! I am actually beginning to think that Noorster is avoiding me...

Ok, sign me up for next time - I'll bring my "Rav Milon".

Yael K said...

It was really fun! I didn't expect it to be so much fun but am looking forward to the next time! LOL, Noorster and I were so happy when we could come up with a word between the two of us and were majorly impressed that the other teams were not only coming up with words but were strategizing about the points they could rack up if they did this word versus that and got this letter here versus there. One of these years!!

We play scrabble often with one of our daughters and the SIL. They beat the snot outta us all the time. In Hebrew? Of course I couldn't make one word. Well, I suppose I could have an accident.

And YET Noorster keeps saying she doesn't speak Hebrew! Oh the lying!

I'm very impressed with all of you.

John, I'm not, honest. Lioness, Yael and I were allowed to use the dictionary.

Oy - my favorite game. I play all the time with my nephew who lives in New York. We play via the internet through:

Imagine playing it in Hebrew. Kol Ha'Kavod!

Fred said...

I can barely play Scrabble in English, and look at you!! Great pictures.

I hope to be back on a more regular basis soon.

I enjoy remembering that in my youth I visualized spending my "sunset years" playing mah jongg in Miami Beach!

John, bring Yaacov. We'll need to train him to take over when Danny's on vacation!

Yael - Getting us to play Hebrew scrabble and have fun doing it proves you really are a teacher at heart!

Tan Lucy - Don't be too impressed: many of my words were accidents too.

Lioness - It depends what your definition of "speak" is. Noorster's English is flawless, so she probably holds herself to a very high standard.

Tamar - What a nice way to keep in touch with a distant nephew!

Fred - I've missed you.

Savta,
I was sure I left a post but it was probably in my mind---or what's left of it. You folks did a great job of filling up the board. I'd love to have been at the party in the grandstand. Hope you all are having a good week!

Scrabble in ANY other language always seems triple-tough, but when one has to learn a completely new alphabet, it looks impossible! Sure makes the players look clever, though... making sense of letters I don't recognize!

Danny said...

Just to warn you guys, Gucci's been studying the dictionary all week. He's been concentrating especially hard on seven-letter words with high-scoring letters in them like ayin (score of 8) ... who ever said poodles were "just circus dogs"?
