Are you looking for a fantastic computer version of Scrabble (plus a slew of other Scrabble-based games)? Then you've got to check out X-Words Deluxe. You can play against the computer, or using the very easy to set-up GameSmith, you can play against others online. The game itself is a lot of fun for Scrabble hounds like myself. There are plenty of options included to adjust various aspects of the game, including board layout, penalties for turns lasting more than 25 minutes, etc.

The trickiest aspect to the game was figuring out how to host a game. I have a router and had to set port-forwarding on it in order to host a game. It was frustrating at first, but once I found the solution on Freeverse's site, I was able to host an X-Word game and invite others to play.

If you're looking for a top quality Scrabble game for OSX, look no further than X-Words Deluxe. Download the trial version - it will give you a good feel for what this game is like.

Highly recommended.

FYI to downloaders: This is not actually a crossword program, it's a Scrabble program. I wasn't looking for Scrabble so I didn't spend any time with this but at a quick glance it looks quite attractive.
