Why, WHY do they think we want one fucking color burning the living shit out of our eyes?! Look at all that wasted space!
I just like my haystacks. Actual, physical board, and maybe a nifty iPhone version if I can find one that looks like it's worth some mullah.
..omg, look at that picture of Rebecca. She looks retarded! HAHAHAHAH!!! RETARDED!!!
hey guys. i;'m drunk
Actually I'm not. Hi Annie.
Dueling Mr. Poes will entertain me for at least minutes.
Thank God they didn't make a mac version. Macs are for yuppies and technologically challenged (and yes I know that people make "art" with them but they fall under the category of bourgeoisie yuppie types)
Sigh, the official version are always ugly unpleasant crap. They're targeted towards a lowest common denominator. They're created by some crappy consultants who sell whiz bang shit to get more money. They're not created by enthusiast nerds. It's sad.
On the other hand what's even more sad is the that creating scrabble is worth less than creating a facebook app.
Annie - you are one tough cookie. Congrats on finishing the STP!
Jesus God that's an eyeload of vomit. And it doesn't even look like Scrabble! Orange and green squares? What the hell? Scrabulous is beautiful BECAUSE IT LOOKS LIKE SCRABBLE.
But Bellevue Ave, it just works!
It does suck hard though. Can they make the board smaller before they finish beta? Please.
@5 Geeky science types have been moving to mac for a while now. All that unixylinuxy stuff that you used to run on university mainframes runs pretty swell on a mac laptop. (And, with the intel chips you can switch over to windows to play crappy games!)
Iota, that's a sad first word. A whopping 8 points. Paninis? Fucking English.
What a waste of a downgrade for Scrabbilicious.
It's ok with me if Annie uses government chapstick, I get mine from the UW Alumni ...
@13: PANINIS is actually no good, but the play in question was QATS and I let it stand so I could play QUOTA on the triple. (C was going to have the Q whether I challenged or not.) Word on IOTA, but that's the lowest scoring play this game. Stop with your little judgments.
All right, I'll stick to big judgments.
I know the pain of getting all vowels and one consonant on the first play. I was commiserating more than insulting.
I like how the user interface is close to unusable, and more screen real estate is used to carry the updated 'whooshy' Scrabble Brand Crossword Game (oh noes! No (R) in SCRABBLE Beta! Here come the Hasbro lawyers!). And the chat function is gone so players can't share their opinions of the worsened user experience.
I think I'd rather go to Meetups and local SCRABBLE Brand Crossword Game club meetings and kvetch with real people over a board that isn't trying so hard to provide people an inferior playing experience.
aww it's not that bad.
Actually, the screenshot is not of the actual game, but the summary screen. The board is much larger when you are playing than what appears in the screenshot and there is still chat, dictionary, stats and other features.
I've played a few games now and I actually like it better. It is a good game.
The new colors suck, they don't have the full dictionary, etc.,..... so skip this watered down version and play live!
The Seattle Scrabble Club meets every Tuesday night at University Friends Meeting (4001 9th Ave NE) starting at 6pm. www.seattlescrabble.org
