Really?…a Text Messaging Game

I’m happy that my 21 year old intern started laughing when she saw this game. It’s called LOL: The TEXT MSG GAME!  The game says its for kids 8 & up.  The game play is basically Scrabble–but instead of making real words, you make TEXT words/phrases.  I love that when I talk to most people of a certain age and they use text abbreviations, they say the whole expression out loud.  Thoughts?  We will try it with some hard core texters–but as a people, is this the word play we want to encourage?  At the moment, it certainly would be a generational slap down.
