Play the Scrabble game with your friends in Windows 10, Windows 8 with these five best apps
Scrabble has been one of my favorites games during childhood, when as kids, we would have gathered around the living room floor and would become lost into the world of words, for countless hours. Scrabble is a board game, which at the beginning presents itself empty. 100 tiles are provided, each with one letter (and a tally) scribbled upon it.
To begin playing users should draw a letter from a pouch where the tiles have been previously squabbled. Then each player has to draw seven letters and try to make up words with them. Each player has to try to come up with words that are long and score high, in order to win the game.
Now, in the era of computers and mobile devices, owners of Windows 10, Windows 8 and Windows RT machines, have the opportunity to play this game in the virtual environment. Let’s check out a couple of apps which might help rekindle your childhood:
