1: Can we use Yahoo's version of Scrabble?

2: Does anyone have a site for us to play heads up?


1. You can, if both of you agree to it. The problem with Yahoo's "Scrabble" is that the letter distribution isn't consistent. On the Scrabble website, there are always the same letters in every game. On Yahoo, sometimes you can get 4 q's. Sometimes you can get 9 wilds. It's more luck-based. But feel free if both people want to use it.

2. If pokerroom won't work (I don't know anything about poker and therefore went with the first one that didn't require a download to use) then we'll have to find another. I'm wide open to suggestion.

I'll go check out different online games for the poker. But feel free to post any suggestions. We can't get rid of poker. There has to be a game I'm not very good at, doesn't there?

Yahoo's site could be workable for poker. You'd just need to go to one of the less crowded rooms and make the table "private." That way, no one can join w/o your invitation. The only question, then, is how would you do the money thing? Each person coming in (after the first round) will have a different amount of cash.

We could use it, but I need someone who is more skilled at poker to tell me how it would work, exactly.

I should go get breakfast. But I need help/suggestions, guys!

Yahoo poker sucks, and sucks hard. It just looks ugly, and I'd have no idea how to work around that equal starting stacks issue.

Also, I'm pretty sure Yahoo only has fixed limit games. Personally, I prefer no limit, but I could handle playing fixed.


I'm really not trying to shoot everything down, and I wish I could offer some kind of good alternative, but I don't have one.
