The popular word tile game previously known as Scrabulous returned to the social networking site Facebook under the new name Wordscraper.
Brothers Rajat and Jayant Agarwalla changed the name of the popular game after they were sued by Hasbro, the maker of the board game Scrabble. According to The New York Times, the popularity of Wordscraper soared after Hasbro sued the Agarwallas and news of the suit provided thousands of words of free publicity.
Scrabulous featured an exact replica of a Scrabble board and Wordscraper now lets players pick the size and configuration of their board. If players wanted, they could configure their boards to be identical to a Scrabble board.
