Mary and Ashley play a game of Binary Scrabble
My second Scrabble postcard, something which clearly reveals my affection for the game, even if I'm not very good at it. If anyone reading this hasn't tried Scrabble, you must. It is the board game par excellence. Binary Scrabble is featured in The Fourth Bear when Mary goes to meet Ashley's family who being alien prefer to talk and add in binary. Since any combination of 1s and 0s make a word (as long as it begins with a 1) then you can place all your tiles down every go, pretty much anywhere you want. The skill comes in making the most out of the triple word score squares. Binary Scrabble is played with twice the number of tiles as usual, all 1s and 0s, and to make it a bit harder, there are no blank tiles. An average game lasts about eight minutes.

Composite photograph, ten passes, Nikon D2X and Photoshop CS. Location: my front room. Mari wrote out the scoresheet.
