So it looks like Hasbro have come for Scrabulous in Europe too.
I'm torn. I'd be very sad, but at least it interrupted the serious ass-kicking Darren was giving me, with charmed seven letter words, and triple words per go... he's like a man charmed, he should go on Countdown. Scrabbling Otter, more like.
So now I can pretend I was going to gain some ground before my ignominious defeat. And that he was using his IT skills to cheat somehow.
I can see why Hasbro are miffed, but not playing Scrabulous is not going to make me play more Scrabble. Or buy more boards than I have already. And if anything, I'd say Scrabulous was a rejuvenating force for Scrabble, introducing it to a new generation, getting people interested again.
