Scrabulous was shut down last night in the US and Canada. What else is Facebook good for?[More:]And I was just starting to get decent at the game, too--I was one move away from winning the game that would have given me a 1400 rating.

Granted, it looks like Hasbro has a case, but still.
Are you sure it was shut down, or did everyone's slow-ass partner just decide to wander away from the keyboard en masse?

*glares at puke & cry*

That's too bad, I know a lot of people who really enjoyed it. I'm not one of those people, though; the more I played, the worse I got :-P

Oh man, facebook! I should log in again one of these days.

Does Yahoo! still have Literati? Their Scrabble analogue was fine, for an internet Scrabbling fix. Nothing like getting your pants handed to you by a cute Finnish chick for whom English is her third or fourth language. Rawr!

Looks like TPS just posted to the blue about this. Apparently, you can still play on

As for other Facebook apps, a friend of mine on Facebook is playing WordTwist. Don't know what it is, but it sounds promising.

I play word twist. It's fun.

I'm pretty sure I used to play Scrabulous but not through Facebook. I also used to play Scrabble on Atari, but it looks like it's been pulled as well.

I play Bomboozle like it's going out of style. Far too addictive.

According to the NYT, you can still play on

I've reconnected with some people,including some I wasn't sure even wanted to hear from me, and have made one surprisingly deep friendship with someone who was only a friendly acquaintance in the past.

Wait, that was a rhetorical question, wasn't it?

I still haven't really figured much to do with Facebook a year or so. Out of my whole 11 friends only two of them ever make any updates so I log in every week or so and see that nothing has changed and then I log out. Other than being a gloried way of sending someone email, I don't really get the point. What magic am I missing here?
