Facebook gets REAL Scrabble

ScrabbleIf you cast your minds back to the whole Scrabulous v Scrabble debacle and how threats flew (mainly in one direction) around – well Mattel has now launched its own Scrabble application for Facebook after successfully appealing for the removal of the Scrabulous interloper.

But its arrival has been less than smooth, with many players reporting a variety of bugs and usability issues getting in the way of their wordy fun.

Scrabble is actually struggling to tempt Facebookers with only 3860 people playing the game each day.

That is partly because US-based Facebook users cannot play it at the moment as Hasbro licenses the board game there and has agreed that EA will publish its digital creations……..complications, complications.

Meanwhile Scrabulous has been deemed fit to return and manges to soak up the working day spare time of 692,700 people every day.
