In the X With Friends franchise, Scramble With Friends isn’t exactly the favorite, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t have its devotees. This guy, for instance, can play so fast he’s routinely accused of cheating by other players and claims to have a record high score of 3,700 points. It sounds ridiculous, but when you watch the video, everything becomes clear. He’s not actually seeing and identifying words, instead he’s guessing letter combos based on possible vowel positioning, and entering a bunch of invalid words in the process. It’s sort of against the spirit of the game, but not the rules. Even so, the speed at which he does it is incredible. I hope to someday be half as good at just one thing. Preferably a more useful thing.
