    Why can you not use ox? Ffs. Hearing all this puts me off trying it online.
    There was another innocuous word that I can't remember that got blocked in the same game as well, the randomness of it is bizarre, for example HELP which was banned the other day was fine when I played it to see what would happen.

    Hey Microsoft, if you're reading this, just let the entire bloody Scrabble dictionary be used in MP as it is in SP. Thank you.

    Seen a slightly odd tactic tonight. Ive seen a couple of people do the same thing. Basically if they go first they don't quarrel and end their turn immediately bumping one of their 7 tiles up to 8 for an anagram solve on their next go. Potentially they are using an online dictionary to guarantee the anagram and a bonus troop but I guess they are playing the percentages as to whether their opponent gets it quicker.

    It's a weird thing to do but if you don't get sucked into it and can get off the mark against one of their other tiles - say a 5 v 6 then their tactic falls apart.

    I'm a bit hit and miss on amagrams so that tactic had me the first time but not on the second

    Got 34 anagrams thus far according to the leaderboards. It maybe should be higher, but the AI made me rage quit out of a game when I was raging at them for very quick high-scoring short words.

    Anyone know if they still count if you get them, or if it's only added at the end of the game?

    Malik is a bastard. He just beat me with Gonads. It felt like being beaten by them too :(

    I ragequit twice against malik last night, the lousy bastard. In the end I gave up and played skyrim so that I could feel better about myself.

    I vow that I will return and beat him when I am less tired though.

    Mailk I can deal with and Rex is ok as he's generally quite slow.

    Helena and Kali are uber bitches however

    Sorry I had to duck out so soon last night, Ironlungs - the missus got home faster than I expected. :)

    I really need to get my mic sorted out, it's getting a bit silly now.

    It's quite alright Blerk, you missed out on nothing more than my drunken ramblings and cursing glo for being so damned good (ie sober)

    Feel free to drop me an invite again should you see me kicking my heels. I've got a big page of mic-fixing tips as well now, so I might actually be able to say something rather than just listen to the lunacy unfolding.

    It wouldn't let me have "raped" - perfectly valid word.

    Blerk's didn't seem to work unless it was making me, lexx and lungsy sound ridiculous by being echoey!

    Very proud of my first two anagrams last night. Made me feel a bit less thick.

    Can't use "puss" in multiplayer either...

    The words allowed online is a bit more restrictive. It wouldn't let me have "scrap", probably because it contains the word "crap" *roll eyes*

    Conversely, I was allowed to use "yid"...

    Lie with passion and be forever damned...

    Oh ffs, it's glitched out and Biff is spazzing out trying to add players to a squad of 8 repeatedly.

    Anyway to end his turn so malik can play, or am I going to have to quit out now?

    Wish there was a time limit to prevent this going on ad nauseum.

    Damien is currently doing my head in on showdown. Never mind getting as far as Kali.

    I often match his word exactly, but he is always that little bit faster working out the highest scoring word. The silicon-minded bastard.

    I'm geting balder by the game after the hair pulling in frustration!

    Edit: especially after the odd glitched loop that Biff went into earlier last night.

    I still can't beat bloody Malik. I know that I am better than him but choke under pressure and he then steam rollers across the board wiping out all my hard work.

    Malik's actually really hard for that point in the game. Several of the AIs who come after him are much easier to deal with (in my opinion, of course).

    Kali has an IQ of 195. And is really fast. And gets the anagram practically every single time.

    It seems a bit buggy and the words you can't have sounds a bit offputting. But its cheap so what the hell.....

    Finally beat Damien in the Showdowns, then breezed past Malik . I have no idea how I got stuck so badly on damien for so long yet could take Malik an allegedly tougher opponent so easily. I've played Malik so often on the domination and challenge game types that I have got used to his style and speed. I think becuuase I was sticking against Damien, that it probably made me panic and choose poor scoring words quite often as he was quite quick.

    Rex will be my next showdown opponent, which should be interesting. Then I guess I'll be on to Helena and Kali who are bugging so many people so much!

    I played my first games against real people over the weekend, with Fruit, who couldn't focus for all the turns, Dave_McCoy, who actually fell asleep (this made him easy to beat), and glo, who smashed me to pieces in one game, but I got revenge in the next game where we got into an anagram-endgame situation and I saw about four of them, having previously just been staring at the screen, seemingly at things that, in my head looked like FLRBLRLS.

    :D

    Tiredness and blood alcohol level definitely makes the anagrams and word selection more difficult.

    I'll have to work out the optimum ratios required for myself one evening!
