A popular word game spells fate for a Massachusetts man and a New Hampshire woman.
In the online game Words with Friends, love wins you nine points. In the case of Winston and Susie Jones, it's connected them to true love.
The couple says they've played over 200 games together. They met online in 2017 playing the popular Scrabble-inspired word game.
The fun hobby turned the two strangers into friends through chat. Four months, and dozens of games later, the two exchanged phone numbers, talked and eventually met for a date.
"We went out to dinner and we talked for a couple of hours," Winston Jones said. "We really hit it off in the beginning. I haven't run out of things to say yet."
By last September, they were engaged, ready to spell out forever.
"I would've never thought that I would meet someone online," Susie Jones said.
"In my family, we started playing scrabble with my grandmother," Winston Jones said. "That was her favorite game and so they're surprised but they're not that surprised."
After the pandemic postponed their original wedding date in June, Susie and Winston finally tied the knot on Aug. 29.
Up next for the newlyweds, a honeymoon in Italy and Switzerland, when that's possible again.
