The popular app Words With Friends has made the typical high school students want to spell. Recently, the game has dethroned Bubble Shooter as the new online addiction for BHS students.
In Words With Friends, which works on Facebook as well as Android and iOS devices, players have seven tiles and try to place them on a grid with 225 spaces. While trying to collect the occasional double or triple word tiles. Words With Friends was invented by the developers at the Zynga corporation (formerly Newtoy, Inc.) in July of 2009.
“Anna, my sister, first was the one to tell me about it, but then I saw Anabelle Fiebelkorn playing it and it looked really cool,” said Sophomore Jay Mason “After that, I downloaded it and have been hooked ever since.”
“Mr. McCallum said he was unbeatable in Words with Friends,” said Junior Ben Leipholtz “So I sent him a request, I started with a big word and lead for the whole game. I ended up beating him by 70-some points.”
McCallum since got his revenge on Leipholtz and his record stands at 17-1.
