    I am watching Word Wars ON NETFLIX STREAMING (sorry, guys), and wow, these people are a million times weirder than the competitive crossword puzzle people. They are INSANE!!! they all live in hovels, and could star in the next episode of Hoarders.

    The crossword puzzle movie had Bill Clinton and some dude from the Yankees as examples of crossword puzzle people.

    anyone ever see either movie?

    yep

    i do both. don't be ashamed of crosswords. CW people are normal, and somewhat bright. Every one of these scrabble people is flat out certifiable.

    growing up, my mom did em and she would give me pages out of her book. i do the usa today crossword everyday and nyt crossword when i get a copy. i find it a great mind exercise and very relaxing. when i was on deployment, i asked for crossword books in my care packages. i used to sell pages out of it.

    i used to do them all the time, now not so much. Just because it's easier to play scrabble on my phone than it is to to a pencil and paper crossword puzzle on the subway. but this movie is making me change my mind.

    ever play any of these?
