That would be so awesome! I've had the same thought myself. Unfortunately I don't have the expertise to make an online multiplayer game of that sort, but I could try for something local. |

This is an awesome idea! It makes me want to learn how to make apps. Some more ideas: Dovahzul crossword, word search, boggle, and maybe even pictionary |

This came up in some recent discussion, and here are my thoughts on letter values for Dovahzul Scrabble. - 1 point:
N x 8 O x 8 R x 6 K x 6 L x 5 aa x 5 U x 5 ah x 5 S x 4 D x 4 V x 4 ii x 4 I x 4 T x 4
- 2 points:
M x 3 E x 3
- 3 points:
Z x 2 G x 2 H x 2 F x 2
- 4 points:
A x 1 ey x 1 ei x 1 B x 1 P x 1
- 5 points:
Q x 1 J x 1 W x 1
- 6 points:
oo x 1 uu x 1
- 8 points:
ir x 1 ur x 1 Y x 1
- 10 points:
X x 1
This totals to 100 tiles and 189 points. For reference, the English version's tiles total to 187 points. All of this is based on 100-tile distribution. If possible, I'd suggest increasing the total number of tiles so there can be more of the common letters. The large number of 1-tile letters would make the game unplayable in the late game. |

This idea is awesome! Indeed, it'd be a nice way to practice Dovahzul. |

I can't provide any technical support, but I'd be ready to donate a few euros for this to be made.

ikaram Pretty much any game with text in it, really. Imagine doing a Portal hack where you translate all of GLaDOS's dialogue to Dovahzul . . . |

ikaramPaarth... WHAT IF YOU MADE AN MMO IN DOVAHZUL?! That would be awesome. But I'm not quite sure how can you do it...
