Apple Games Features iPod Scrabble
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Apple Games has posted a new feature article showcasing Scrabble, one of many new titles for Apple's iPod. The iPod incarnation of the popular board game offers varying difficulty levels, multiple styles of play, stat tracking, and the ability for up to four players to compete. The article includes a review of the game as well its history.

Never mind a board, a bag full of tiles, a dictionary, and a pad of paper; now you can carry all of that on your iPod with Scrabble. Pull a quick game out of your pocket any time, anywhere and match wits against up to three other players or the computer, with three levels of difficulty available. The game tracks your historical statistical achievements, including your highest-scoring game, your best word and best turn, your wins, losses, and ties, and your career number of bingoes (using all seven tiles in one turn).

Scrabble on the iPod also features a built-in dictionary, so it can automatically decide the validity of any word placed on the board without an argument ensuing between human opponents. Four times per game, you can ask the computer to figure out your best word combination, based on your tiles and the board’s layout, and then decide whether or not to accept it. As in real world Scrabble, you can exchange some of your letters for new ones (earning zero points for that turn) and shuffle your tiles to see if they spark a new combination.
