    Everyone has been talking about words with friends so i DL'd the app last night. Wordsmith is superior in the following ways

    Words with friends lets you try unlimited times with no penalty for trying to submit invalid words. This allows people to just keep trying ridiculous combos until they get something that works. Wordsmith allows 3 tries. 3rd try you lose your turn.

    Wordsmith has a "mix" button , so you don't have to shake your phone to rearrange your words.

    As you put down your tiles it keeps a total of what the point value of that word will be. Words with friends does not

    There is a clear button on wordsmith.
    What phone are you using? I have a Moto Droid.

    WordFeud also has a clear button and a shuffle button; both are quite nice.

    It does not have any limitations on how many times you try words (not sure I care for that) and it also does not keep track of your potential score... which might be nice but I add it up without thinking about it anyway.

    Also, how are Wordsmiths' notifications? I find the lack of working notifications one of the major flaws of Word With Friends. I get task bar notifications only 10-15% of the time and 100% of those notifications are AFTER I already went into the app, saw my opponent(s) played and played a word myself. I like WordFeud's customizable notifications, so I hear a clip from the Starlight Mints, get a task bar notification and have the blinking light.

    Even more important that the notifications is that I don't think WordFeud has ever crashed on me. Words With Friends has been doing better lately but for a while it was crashing every time I signed in, and then the next time it would make me enter my email address again and then it would say it was updating... which is way sketchy.

    12 so far, and as far as single elimination and consolation rounds thats all up to you guys. I would probably just say single elimination?

    Yeah, I think that would be best for this inaugural tournament. Some of these matches could take some time to be resolved based on available play time. This simple bracket system itself could take weeks (months).

    I think double elim is actually something we can swing. With 16 players, it's four rounds for the final 2, three rounds for the final 4 and only 2 rounds for half of us.

    Making this double elim would only add one more round (and possibly one more for the same two finalists) at the end. So basically, I'm saying let's go double elim to give everyone at least two games and two opponents while only extending the tournament a little.

    Also, since seeding will be random, this will solve any issue with the top players meting in early rounds and getting eliminated by one another.

    4 more and I will present the bracket.

    I'm cool with that. So, do we need to wait for 16 to get started?

    Because of my upcoming trip to France, I don't think I'll enter the tournament, but if you want to play me, I'm fancy restaurant. I just challenged Hannah.

    I'll play. Can't remember what the word was that got me my highest score but I know the score was around 135. If you're playing someone who isn't very good and leaves you open to hook a triple word score, you can get a lot of points playing a pretty ordinary word.

    Bracket posted with random seedings. GO GO GO!

    Post here to confirm that your games have been started. PM your opponent if you need to.

    Still one spot open against Lynn163.
