Not So Scrabulous!

Updated on October 23, 2011

Not So Scrabulous!

Recently, I was up late playing the infamous Scrabulous on Facebook. Something was in the air as my buddy decided that we only had a low amount of tiles left so we could complete the game. My friend was planning on taking a break from playing Scrabulous. Those two brothers from India, Rajat and Jayant Agarwalla, produced a very addictive game very much like sitting across from someone and playing the actual board game, Scrabble. We finished playing our game and sure enough within a few days the plug was pulled on Scrabulous. During July, Hasbro, the makers of Scrabble, were pursuing a copyright infringement lawsuit after Agarwalla allegedy rejected a roughly $10 million acquisition offer according to Wikipedia. Facebook was forced to shut down Scrabulous. And now Hasbro has introduced their version of the application called, well, Scrabble. It must be in a testing phase. So far Scrabble on Facebook is nothing like Scrabulous. Scrabulous was Scrabble more than Scrabble is Scrabble. Those brothers from India had it down. I’m sure Scrabble will make adjustments. My question is, why didn’t the brothers take the $10 MILLION DOLLARS? Were they doing well enough with the advertising? They’re not making any advertising money now. Gee, makes you think, “What other board games aren’t yet an application on Facebook and how the heck can I do what they did?” Buy me out for $10 million dollars, right?
