French Word Games

I remember my grandmother and I playing Scrabble many years ago, and she always won – she also did crossword puzzles – need I say more!?

I recently went to a French club activity where we played French Scrabble – there were five of us playing – expats trying our best to use all our letters (les pions).  This took some time, brain intensive effort, and a little help from the French hostess, who kindly served tea/coffee and cookies.  Thank goodness score wasn’t being kept, and you could verify words in the official Scrabble word approved reference book, if needed.  Words were also accepted conjugated in all the tenses, even in passe simple!  Ooh, la, la!
