    i love playing this game but in no way can i play as quickly as these guys do. the intense sound that comes from these tiles is amazing! again another FABULOUS shot

  • the tiles clicking, the yelling, the swearing, being in another world is the main reason they play it I guess (the money, but that’s hush-hush). It’s Zen-like and, like you said, FAST!

    a big fabulous thank-you:)

    I can play, and quite well, i can beat the wife, but not my father-in-law, he is really good… so good that friends here stopped inviting him to play…

  • I have a friend, she beats the pants of off everyone. She’s tried to teach me, but, well, I guess it’s not my game…:)
