Mattel (who owns Scrabble in the UK) is going to change the rules of Scrabble to allow names?  That be wack.  The reason they weren’t allowed in the first place is that people would just make up high-scoring names like Zyqax and say, “what?  I could name my kid Zyqax.”  I hate boardgames with subjective rules that are wide-open to interpretation and you just spend the whole game arguing.  Outburst had this problem.  “Things to eat that start with C.”  “Cardboard…what?  You could eat cardboard!”

    And to think…I had nearly forgotten the chemically altered cardboard pork buns.
