If you don't know what Lexulous is then chances are that you've been living under that rock for a teeny bit too long. And unless you're lichen then that isn't terribly healthy. But I'll explain what it is just for those potentially unhealthy lichen-humanoid hybrids that could inhabit the internet. There are a lot of weirdos on the internet nowadays, after all.

Chances are that you might know Lexulous by its former name, Scrabulous. It's a neat little online game that's not unlike Scrabble, with its own community website. The game was added to Facebook as an application way back in 2007 and quickly became the most popular game on Facebook. Then in 2008 it got taken off Facebook and the website was shut down due to copyright infringement laws. Yup. Hasbro, the owners of Scrabble, were pretty much pissed. This was probably because they didn't think of the idea themselves, as they were too busy making twenty million retarded variations of Monopoly that nobody cares about.

Anyway, later that year Scrabulous won back its rights to keep the game if it changed the rules and its name. Thus Scrabulous became Lexulous and returned to Facebook as one of the most popular and more mentally stimulating games available. Now you can even play it on most phones, including the iPhone! There's no Droid support yet though, and the iPad runs it in iPhone view but the chances are that they'll pick up on that and make updates and changes soon.

So if you're after a good old fashioned word game, or some poor soul to terrorize with vicious winning streaks, then check out the links below.
