Scrabble Twist


Scrabble Twist is a new handheld gadget from Hasbro which gives the famous vocabulary-matching game a tactile and mobile twist.

This fast-paced version of the word-building game is best suited for kids and parties: You’re given five letters with which to build a word — you tap the letters you want in order, then twist the device to end your turn. Then you pass it to the next person, or just keep playing if you are in single player mode. When the game ends each player will be scored automatically.

Scrabble Twist will be released in the fall of 2015 and retail for $20.

Disney Abandons The Old ‘Star Wars’ Expanded Universe, Will Connect All Creative Developments Going Forward


The Star Wars franchise quickly branched out from the original films to other forms of media like comics, books, and even television series.

Something called the Star Wars Expanded Universe, or EU, has traditionally encompassed all licensed material outside of the six feature films created by George Lucas. Film canon always trumped EU canon, but the two coexisted peacefully with aspects translating between them. With the purchase of Lucasfilm by Disney and subsequent announcement of new film developments, fans have been wondering whether the EU would be incorporated into this new vision.

Disney has today revealed that any new creative developments going forward, including the new films, will be overseen by a single story group for the sake of consistence and coherence. Previous EU content will remain in print according to demand under a new Star Wars Legends banner.

There may be content pulled from old EU for use by the new Lucasfilm Story Group, but this is effectively the end of what it was previously.

Now, with Lucasfilm’s Story Group, the EU will be unified like never before. Across the new films, TV animation, comics, novels, and games, the Star Wars narrative will be entirely consistent and cohesive. “I think the idea of aligning the content,” says Kiri Hart, head of development, “is actually a really fantastic and exciting opportunity that no other fictional universe could really even support.”

Doctor Who Interactive Google Doodle Celebrates 50th Anniversary


In honor of the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who, Google has created an interactive Google Doodle based on the series — a Whodle! — and launched it today on their home pages around the world.

The doodle serves as an interactive game where you play as each of the eleven doctors in a race against time against a Dalek. As the Doctor, you need to collect all the letters of “Google” and bring them back to the TARDIS, while the Dalek is after you. But don’t worry, if you die, you’ll just regenerate to the next incarnation of the Doctor, though before that you’ll have a Dalek on you shouting its signature phrase, “Exterminate!”. The interactive game includes authentic sound effects from Doctor Who, provided to the Google Doodle creators by the BBC.

As part of the 50th anniversary, The Day of the Doctor, which stars Matt Smith and Jenna Coleman and will see guest appearances by David Tennant, Billie Piper, John Hurt, and many more, airs on Saturday, November 23, 2013 at 7:50pm GMT on BBC One in the UK and at 2:50pm EST on BBC America in the U.S.
