Manic Monday: Bug

Those of you who play Scrabulous on Facebook might be interested in knowing that there's a different version coming out. It's made by the people who created "Scrabble" in the first place. (Hasbro). They e-mailed me to ask if I would be willing to help them beta-test it.
They said they did a search for people who liked Scrabulous, so maybe they saw my Jannaverse post about the great Scrabulous battle between me and Fab.

I accepted, and for the past couple days I've been trying out the new version, seeing if it works, seeing if I can find any obvious bugs in the application.

For the most part, it works fine. There are some small issues which they'll probably address later, but I like it. I love Scrabulous too, of course. They each have their pros and cons.

Here's what Scrabulous looks like, for those of you who don't know:

And here's what the beta version of Hasbro's Scrabble looks like:

I'll go into more detail when the beta testing is complete.
For now, though, I have a ton of wooden letter tiles coursing through my brain.

wow, I'm really excited for this. Perhaps we can play a game against each other when the full version comes out :)

Since I consider Scrabble a blood sport, get rid of those bugs and we can have a game.

I got invited to the Beta test, and signed up for it, and never heard back! Darnit!

That's pretty cool. I've gotten to playtest some of the games my company develops. It's pretty fun.
