You need a plug-in called Shockwave to play Story Scramble.
It's a software application that lets you play a gazillion games on the web, not just Story Scramble.
You can get it for FREE from the folks who make the plug-in.
Take a look at the Shockwave Help page to find out how to download and install the plug-in.
Then come right back here to play Scoop!
Once you have it, it will always be on your computer, and you don't have to get it again.
