Amazon Debuts Scrabble App For Kindle

Sure, you wish Amazon launched a Space Invaders app instead to enliven your dreary reading. Alas, a word game is what coming to the Kindle family thanks to the team at Electronics Arts Inc. The app is compatible with either second or third generation Kindles and the DX. At $4.99 it’s no sleeper either. The app has cracked the top 10 of Amazon’s bestseller list right behind Stieg Larsson’s scorching novels.

    I would play STAINED on the bottom line, with the S on the double letter box and the D completing the word STONED. With the double letter on S and the triple word score, that’s 18 points, plus 50 for using all seven letters plus another 7 for STONED. 75 points in all, if I’m adding correctly. Math was never my strongest subject.
