    Scrabble
    Connect Four

    Scrabble may be fun, but the rest of them I just can't imagine playing in the virtual world.

    i love battleship, and having played knockoffs online, can say it's just as fun that way. of the others, Yahtzee's the only one I might pick up...depends on the price.

    Yeah, Battleship is fun in real life, but on the Xbox 360? No thank you :p

    I saw screenshots for Trivial pursuit today on ign. So that and Scrabble are games that the gf will play with me (mostly because she knows that she can/will win).

    If it's cheap, I can see playing this with the family on a Monday night :D

    This is what they should have done with Monopoly instead of that overpriced retail title. Personally I'm looking forward to Yahtzee and maybe Scrabble - we'll see about the others. I can see playing Connect Four with my kids.

    Yahtzee would be cool, probably on the same XBLA terms as Uno, as in becoming quite addictive while up at 2:30am.
    Can anyone explain to me what 'Sorry!' is please?

    Basically, you have a certain number of colored pawns you are trying to go around the board. Once you get them all around once you win. The hard part is everyone else is also moving and if they land on you, you have to go back to where you started, as a result, "Sorry!" angry

    I hate/like the game. I remember playing it in elementary school alot.

    Anyways, Hasbro Family Game Night is now rated on esrb. Its E for Everyone.

    Eh, it could be interesting...or it could be a complete flop depending on the pricing.

    20 bucks says there won't be any online play at all.

    It says up in the first post that it will take full control of xbox live features like online play and achievements.

    I'm looking forward to Scrabble. I love word games and the offerings on XBLA so far have not lived up to expectations (Merv Griffin's Crosswords & Word Puzzle). Yet I'm hopeful about Scrabble because the game itself is just great, and there's not too many ways I can imagine messing it up.

    Here's looking forward to triple word scoring QUIXOTRY on some unsuspecting 12 year old!

    Or you could just buy the game and have them plus more. I mean 800 points is $10.00 so $40.00 for the 4 or just buy the full disc game.
