Looking for something to do while hibernating through a triple digit heat-wave? Try one of the various forms of Jalpunascrabble:
- Fiction Scrabble: Anything counts as a word so long as it sounds like a word, and so long as you have a fake definition for it.
- Craigslist Scrabble (otherwise known as MySpace Scrabble): To play a word, you must either use or spell it incorrectly. Thus, 'lose' is spelled 'loose', and to-two-too are interchangeable. To make sure you're not using a proper spelling, use of a dictinary is allowed. Grin.
- Twitter Scrabble: Only twitterized abbreviations and hashtags can be played (minus the actual hash of course). You must explain what each means or is an abbreviation for.
- Ikea Scrabble: If it sounds like it could be the name of a product from Ikea, you can play it. You must describe the product it sounds like it would be. Ekeskog, for example. 25 point bonus if it actually exists (which, by the way, Ekeskog does. Here it is in Skoka Beige).
- Acronym Scrabble: Only acronyms can be played. In order to play a series of letters, you must explain what they're an acronym for.
- Redneck Scrabble: This one's pretty much self-explanatory. Spell it the way they pronounce it in Alabama. Vowels will go fast.
- Any Language Scrabble. This one is an idea I stole from someone else, but I would never even attempt to play it. Still, it's worth adding to the list.
- Dirty Scrabble. The idea here is that you can only play a word if you can somehow make it NSFW :)
- Swedish Chef Scrabble?

One of the most important rule in Redneck Scrabble is that while spelling has no issue here, you MUST be able to use it in a sentence. example: Hachew; I tell my sister everyday, "I hachew"! or sidown; My teacher tells me all day long to sidown!
