The End of the Golden Age of Scrabulous

leave a comment »

Followup from last week: Scrabulous has been disabled for US and Canadian users until further notice.

UPDATE: Anyone else installed the legit Hasbro version yet? It’s not only twice as slow with half the features, it’s ugly too.

The Real Crisis

In all the hoopla of the primary race, we Americans are allowing our way of life to be destroyed before our very eyes. Thanks to Patrick Egan for playing Paul Revere tonight.

So Long, Scrabulous

leave a comment »

Facebook has been asked to remove the Scrabulous game from its website by the makers of Scrabble… Lawyers for toy makers Hasbro and Mattel say Scrabulous infringes their copyright on the board-based word game. Because this didn’t happen immediately, I’d assumed that Facebook and Hasbro worked out some kind of deal. I guess cease & desist orders still move slow in the future. Hasbro’s utterly insane, in any event, to try and shut Scrabulous down—what they need to do is offer Facebook the opportunity for a license so they can get a piece of the action. This move just shortsightedly kills their own user base. Via Tim, who’s come back after several crushing defeats to absolutely massacre me in our last two games.
