Facebook application Scrabulous has apparently been given a makeover in an attempt to head off a suit by Hasbro, who own the US rights to Scrabble. The new look game is now called Wordscraper and comes with a completely new look, including circular tiles and new rules.
The re-birthed game is already appearing on US and Canadian profiles, but is yet to appear on Australian profiles – at least I haven’t seen it yet.
Perhaps it will bring with it new fortunes in the games I play with a notorious ‘wordsmith’ from Wagga. I can but hope. J
