Heads or Tails - Square

Heads Or Tails
The theme/prompt for THIS week, January 5 , is:

HEADS - "Square"

Make any kind of post about anything "Square"

There are a lot of games available on Facebook.  I know because I see the posts by my friends, but I haven’t tried most of them.  I guess I’m just a little too afraid of being sucked in.  There is one game I play on Facebook, though – Lexulous:

It’s a game full of squares.  Most of those squares are white.  But there are some special squares on there, too – squares that double or triple your letter or word score.  Oh yes, I love those squares!  It’s especially fun to place a letter with a high point value on a triple letter score square, and then use it twice.

Well, enough of that.  I’ve got some letters to place on some squares so I can score me some points!

Except I can’t stop there.  As I was getting ready to hit ‘Publish’ a song popped into my head.  I was thinking of ‘Hip to be Square’ by Huey Lewis and the News, but when I went searching on YouTube, I found this Sesame Street version, and decided to share it instead:

Love it!

Heads or Tails is a fun weekly meme created and hosted by Barb (aka Skittles) – feel free to join in!


  1. Is that similar to scrabble? Squares it is anyway.

  2. Looks like Scrabble to me!!!

    My H O T is posted HERE

  3. It is very similar to Scrabble - just changed enough that Hasbro can't complain any more. There is a Scrabble app on facebook, but I like this better.

  4. I used to play Scrabble all the time and this looks like it. I play the farm games on FaceBook. I'll have to look for this one. Thanks for playing. =)

  5. Thanks for adding the video. I've loved Sesame Street since my daughter was young. Now my granddaughter has outgrown it. Maybe I'll just watch it by myself. Think that 2nd childhood qualifies me?

  6. Looks like a fun game! I'm sucked in to sooo many games on facebook. All I need is another one! And I was also thinking of that song!

  7. I'm a bit late getting here today. Crazy day at work. Like the "scrabble-like" app from FB. My HOTS is here... (thanks)...

  8. As you know, I play Wordscraper on Facebook, which is basically the same thing as this game. It's VERY easy to get sucked in to the games.

  9. Sucked in indeed! I have just recently "gave up" my FB games because I was wasting entirely too much time on them. I've played this one too. It's VERY addictive.


I love your comments! Keep them coming.
