    £60 (ish) for 2,000 gamer points worth of games makes it sound like better value than £6 a pop does.

    I'd rather have them with friends so deleted this after trying the demo.

    BoomBlox was good, but I'm guessing Jenga won't have the level variety.

    Connect 4 came out when this game was first released. I've been playing it for the last year or so......?!?!

    It's as different game, Connect 4 x 4. Twice the grid squares and twice the players.

    Agreed with those that say Boom Blox is a good game. Only thing missing, of course, is xbox live compatabaility and achievements :P

    Angry much?
    The reason is nothing to do with the dictionary. Hasbro owns the rights to Scrabble in North America, but it's own by a completely different company (Mattel I think) elsewhere in the world.

    I'm starting to feel more and more like Hasbro is raping my wallet just because they can screw with my completion percentage. Is Mr. Potato Head kinda like Mickey Mouse in that South Park episode??

    I agree, Alpha. I'm kind of pissed that MS is allowing Family Game Nights to get to 2000 points. If Family Game Night does get to 2000, then I have a feeling other games will start doing the same thing.

    Well, bear in mind that there's no confirmation that that is going to happen. That's mainly just my speculation

    Come on now, Microsoft doesn't care about anyone's completion percentage. Do you really think they think of such things when they release anything onto marketplace?

    If you think about it, each game is it's own unique title with 200 possible points. There is no difference between them releasing them independent of each other and releasing them under one banner.

    Family Game Night is not a game; Boggle, Scrabble, Connect 4, etc. are games. It only makes sense to release them as a similar entity. I wouldn't worry about other 'games' gamerscore cap being increased aside from this and perhaps the new game room.

    Shame Scrabble isn't owned by Hasbro in the UK...It sucks that I will never be able to 100% the game. Hate how my gamer card tells me I don't have the achievements when cleary I am unable to get them anyway :(

    I'm from the UK and I have 200'd Scrabble. It's easy you need an NTSC xbox and a US account then you can play it.
    I haven't 1400'd the game though because I hate Sorry! Will do it soon though in my quest for 100 completions!

    Balls didnt want more shite rip off games! :(

    Are you sure you need an NTSC Xbox? I have a UK account on my US 360 and I can download and play XBLA demos from the UK marketplace.
    P.S. Act like my whole post is enclosed in [sarcasm][/sarcasm]. It's easier that way.

    Yeah I d/l'd it on my PAL console with a US account and didnt play so tried my NTSC 360 and it did. It's the same for everyone. I's region locked but no other aracde game's are as far as I know.
