"I don't know the parties involved here personally, but would venture to say if Hasbro and Mattel were able to bring this game and it's founders in-house, they'd have a shot at building a more vibrant and successful online franchise for their other properties."

Any examples of when they have done that before? I think these companies prefer "cease and desist" and try to stick to the physical toys and games markets they know best. Ever seen Mattel's software attempts for Barbie and it's ilk? In a word, pathetic.

They've been trying that Barbie crap for a while... one of my friends had a Barbie goes shopping game on C-64. So lame, even to a seven year old girl who -had- Barbie dolls.

Ever try playing online scrabble while on the phone with your opponent? Lots of fun.
