New game: Scrabble — programmer edition

Just like regular scrabble, except the only words you can use are either names of programming languages:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_programming_languages

reserved word from those programming languages. Or open source projects

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Open-source_software#Projects_and_organizations

or something equally geeky.

as a rule, if programmers at the table know the word but your mom doesn’t, it’s a legal word.

    This reminds me of a Scrabble variant invented by writer and semiotician Umberto Eco. In his version, you are only allowed to use dirty words but they can be in any language. Good to know in case you find yourself among vulgar polyglot literati instead of the usual uber-geeks. 🙂
