Category: Games

Ryan Buterbaugh has created an Ajax version of Scrabble on the web called Wabble (mirror).

The application doesn’t require any registration, and uses the Taconite framework as the base.

I hope he fixes the bugs and finds a foreign server, then. This thing’s actually pretty neat.

game is unplayable at the moment, repeated chat messages, responses to slow, people dropping left right and centre

The chat bug has been fixed and all of the XMLHttpRequest calls have been consolidated, plus the Lifehacker surge has abated a little. Performance should be much better now. Thanks to everyone for playing and I hope you continue to enjoy

This is a really cool version of the game. Keep up the good work, Ryan!

People who enjoy this might also enjoy — client-side Java app, but you get niceties like accurately timed games, no game-halt for challenges, drag-drop or type-to-play, etc. and things which aren’t (easily) possible in a web browser.
