How do you play via email? I mean, it still needs an application, right? Or maybe it's a less visible way so they haven't detected it...yet?

Explain how it works, to a non IT person. :p

No IT rocket science used I am afraid! I just go here:

http://www.scrabulous.com/

and click on "Email Version" which takes me here:

http://www.scrabulous.com/email_scrabble/

and then I click on "Play with a family member of friend" which takes me here:

http://www.scrabulous.com/email_scrabble/invite_friends.php

and then I fill in my email and nickname and my opponent's email and name (and optionally add another player or two). Then I take my furst turn and my opponent gets an email with a link they click to get to the right page on Scrabulous' site and take their turn. Then I get an email... etc.!

It is not an application per se. It is a set of emails that link to the Scrabulous site and vice versa.

The best way to show you is to play you. Is your email daily_rant at livejournal dot com (or will that work)?

Try that then. ;-p

Maybe you should change your userinfo and/or check what email address LJ have for forwarding livejournal.com emails to? ;-p

Oh, by the way BINGO! My first ever!

My LJ stuff does forward--because I get all of that in my inbox--replies and notices. I never did get the first scrabulous invite though. I even went and checked the account where the LJ goes directly (usually I get two copies--one there and one forwarded, or in this case none!)

Oh I'm sooo lucky aren't I? Your first bingo--was it as good for you as it was awful for me? ;p That's okay, Susan Triple tripled me last night for 98 points! *thud*

Sorry about the Bingo, by the way!

don't be sorry, it was brilliant! I am learning a lot from playing--everyone has a different style and such.
