While in Park City, Utah for the Sundance Film Festival, Katie Holmes confessed to an addition. Not to drugs, booze or designer duds…but to speed scrabble!
Her and hubby Tom (Cruise that is) like to have casual little game nights with pals like Eva Longoria Parker, Victoria Beckham and David Beckham. When asked what they play she said:
“Well, we like to play this version of Scrabble which is… it’s like a fast version of Scrabble.”
Co star Elijah Wood asked. “Wait, you play like, Speed Scrabble?”
“It’s pretty stressful,” she said. “It’s intense but it’s addictive.”
So, what is speed scrabble?
According to our pal Wikipedia : “Speed Scrabble is played without a board. Tiles are placed face down in the middle of the table. Players draw from these communal letters trying to build words with their personal tiles in front of them. Words can be built by rearranging tiles already there and by playing through pre-existing words as if they were playing Solitaire Scrabble. Play continues rapidly until there are no more tiles left to draw.”
