My only use for Facebook.

Playing Scrabulous (or rather, getting my ass kicked by everyone except my husband) is pretty much the only reason I check my Facebook page.

Mattel and Hasbro want to shut that down.

*sigh*

    I love Scrabulous, but we both know it was only a matter of time before someone at those companies got a hair up their ass to wreck something beautiful.

    Bastards.
     

    • Yeah. Fun while it lasted, though. I don’t see how shutting it down is beneficial for the big fellas but then I don’t understand what the RIAA thinks its doing suing people for ripping their own CDs to their computers for their own use, either.

  • I bought a new Scrabble set based on how much fun I was having playing Scrabulous. Few people are going to replace real life Scrabble with Scrabulous, and the online game certainly exposes people to the board game and gives them the desire to play it more.

    Bah.

  • Yeah, that’s the way I saw it, too. Best promotional tool ever, flushed down the commode. “Good job, BigCorp!”

  • Yeah. That would suck. I check Facebook several times a day because of Scrabulous. If that’s shut down, I’d visit about as often as I visit Myspace, which is to say, not that often.

  • I had no idea there was any relationship between Facebook and Scrabulous whatsoever.

    I’ve been playing Scrabulous since shortly after it was released a 1,000 years ago and have played many a game.

    I knew that it would eventually be killed by Corporate, but I figured that since it kept a low profile it would exist far longer than the previous free web-based online Scrabble I used to play but was also killed by Corporate.

    But, now knowing that it had some association with Facebook, I can see how this fantastically accelerated its demise.

    /sigh

    • Facebook and Scrabulous don’t have any sort of formal biz relationship [that I know of] — the Scrabulous guys just built a version of it that works using Facebook’s applications interface, so people with FB accounts could hook up with each other and play without needing to have an account on Scrabulous.

      Really, if the Scrabulous::Scrabble relationship is seen as a beneficial one, I think the Facebook::Scrabulous relationship can be seen in the same way. I had never heard of Scrabulous before [and I played Scrabble online with some friends on another site/service], but thanks to the FB app I’m well aware of it.
