For fun or to win?

I have never been very good at Scrabble, which is why I've been enjoying a bit of improvement with "Words with Friends" on the iPhone.

Normally when we used to play with friends, the big thing was to get five and six letter words and that was all. When you try this with people who are serious about the game, this is what happens.

Now, if I adopt a different strategy and play mostly defensively and not always go or nice, long words, the scores are a bit better.

But is it as fun? I dunno...there is some fun from not getting beaten badly, but some is taken away when you are actively trying to stop the other person from making points.
