Goodbye Scrabulous, hello Wordscraper?
I was never much of a fan of Scrabulous, probably because as a game, it’s blocked from my office’s network and I generally don’t spend my idle time at home on Facebook. I do find it hard to believe that Scrabulous didn’t make an entry on Stuff White People Like. Apparently, since Scrabulous got the smackdown, the developers already had a replacement waiting in the wings: Wordscraper. Can’t say I’m a fan of the name tho.
Where Scrabulous used the same rules and point system as Scrabble and featured a board with a similar look, the new word game, designed by Calcutta-based designers Jayant and Rajat Agarwalla, has a different point system and a customizable board that uses circles instead of squares.
In very early reviews, users who have tried out the new game, called Wordscraper, are so far giving it a thumbs-up on the applications’s Facebook page. Wordscraper had about 3,500 users late yesterday afternoon.— WaPo: Wordscraper Replaces Scrabulous
