Hasbro too late, successful re-name of Scrabulous to WordScraper

After Scrabble maker Hasbro succeeded in using the DCMA to take Facebook’s Scrabulous app offline, creators Jayant Agarwalla and Rajat Agarwalla have rebirthed the app as ”Wordscraper”.

The new board also has some other features, too (ie. multi-point tiles are in a different pattern). The changes ensure son-of-Scrabulous retains the basic rules of the Scrabble game, but not the look, the feel or the name. Some users reported their Scrabulous games had not been carried over, however.

This time the tiles are circles, not squares!

Facebook’s Scrabble devotees have at least three variants from Hasbro’s own version, J.W. Spear’s international version and Wordscraper.
