Anyone Else Playing Three Scrabulous Games at Once?

I haven't spent time talking much about Facebook, or its super popular app Scrabulous, but from the way the numbers look, odds are you're already using the former or both.

Recently Scrabulous has been hit hard with threats of legal action and a general spike in bandwidth usage (hell, I heard them featured on NPR), and ever since Scrabulous performance hasn't been up to par (but still super fun).

Most recently, and consistently, all the matches I've challenged or been challenged to, as soon as the challenge is drawn against an opponent, not just one but THREE matches are started, all at the same time. This can be daunting to users out there who have a hard enough time keeping up with one match at once.

Well, eventually the annoyance of deleting the other two games got to my cohorts and I, and we've just resigned ourselves (the power users) to playing all three games at once, Bobby Fisher style. At the moment it's certainly made a bit of a difference on how matches usually play out, since you have even less concentrated brain power dedicated to each match.

Do you play Scrabulous? Have you had this problem with multiple matches started? What have you done about it? Let me know in the comments!

As you'll no doubt soon discover, when I attempt to begin a new game, it begins FIVE.

...prepare to rout me at Scabulous.
