Only two more days remaining. I think I'm seeing the theme of this website everywhere, even when I play games -- like this one.
Yesterday's game, as you all noticed, was Words with Friends, also known as Scrabble. It has a history a bit like Monopoly, Clue, and Stratego, where there was an initial design by one person and then it was refined by another to become the game we now know. A gentlemen of the unfortunate name Alfred Mosher Butts did the first pass and called it Criss-Crosswords, and the refinement and subsequent renaming was done by James Brunot. The game became famous when Jack Strauss, the president of Macy's, played it and was surprised to discover that it wasn't carried in his store. It was soon after, and became a big hit. And even now families all over the globe use it to torture each other with their superior knowledge.
I could go on, but just watch this (warning: mild language), it'll explain everything I just wrote and more.
Beard: This is probably the longest the neck beard has gotten because of various necessary shavings. So enjoy it while it's there.
