First of all , I should throw out a warning here, "Caution, this game is addicting and could cause hours of both frustration and enjoyment."

That said, I stumbled on a great game for your Smartphone, iPhone or  Windows phone. It's called "Words ByPost"  Remember when you go to marketplace, to download the game that they have bypost as one word.

If you like "Scrabble", this is the game for you, that is basically what it is. The really fun thing about it though is , you actually get to play with your friends and family. Once you are logged in, you can tell your friends your log in name and they can challenge you to a game within minutes. If you know your friend's log in name, you can challenge them as well.

You can have as many games going at one time as you want as well. I usually have a few going so when one of my friends is busy with their actual life, I can still go back and forth with another. This weekend, I introduced Levack to the game and have since beat him three times, I love the way when we finish one game, I know his challenge will be coming in seconds.

The other really great thing about the game is it really doesn't matter how long it takes you to play your turn, if your really busy you not play a word all day and when you do get to it, its game on all over again. It seems to me it could be a great way to interact and have some fun with the people you love in your life who live far away and you don't get to see them as much as you'd like.

I hope you give it a try, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I have, remember it's not whether you win or lose, it's enjoying the game. With that said, ( and I know I will regret this), my log in name is "sean1102". If you want to take me on, I can be your first win.

I should also mention there is another version of this called, "Words With Friends" this one is very cool because it crosses over with your Facebook account and so you can play both on your phone and on your Facebook account. I'm have not tried it yet, but I assume it makes you way more accessible to game invites though, and unlike me who just posted my screen name on a public blog, you may like the "privacy" of the words bypost".
