    Another one bites the dust

    Electronic Arts recently announced a group of titles that would be ceasing their online operations. Now, another game will be added to the ever growing list of closed servers on April 30th, and that’s https://www.trueachievements.com/Family-Game-Night-xbox....htm.

    All the Game Night titles feature online functionality in some form or another. Thankfully, only one achievement will be affected by the server closure (one too many for achievement hunters though, right?). If you haven’t already, you’ll want to win a game of Scrabble over Xbox LIVE:

    Hasbro Family Game NightWorld Wide WebThe World Wide Web achievement in Hasbro Family Game Night worth 37 pointsComplete one game of Scrabble on Xbox LIVE. (Scrabble is only available in NA & English).


    This is the only title getting the online axe on April 30th. Get the full rundown of the April 13th closures in our previous coverage, and for a full list of EA games with online services shutdown, refer to EA’s Online Service Updates page.

    This whole story can be summed up as...

    "In case you forgot, EA publishes Hasbro Family Game Night, so you can fill in the rest of this on your own"

    Good job, EA.

    Yeah, link is bad. It appends the TA URL to the front of the link, resulting in a dead link.

    Thanks for the heads up. I'll try to get on from time to time between now and the 30th so that people can get this achievement, but my connection has been spotty so I'll apologize in advance if I disconnect by accident during a match.
