Literati is a game on Yahoo that is similar to Scrabble. It’s also a multiplayer game, and you can create your own “rooms.”

I learned about it through Dave Kees, who often writes very thoughtfully and wisely on his blog and on various ESL/EFL listservs.

I’d consider placing the game on The Best Online Games Students Can Play In Private Virtual “Rooms” list, but since 99% of school districts are never going to unblock Yahoo Games, what’s the point?
