12 new “With Friends” trademark applications filed, but not by Zynga

By Jim Squires | Aug 15, 2011 |

Combining asynchronous multiplayer with classic gaming formulas is quickly becoming big business, and Zynga knows it. That’s why they acquired Newtoy, the developer behind such hits as Words With Friends, Chess With Friends, and Hanging With Friends. In fact, Zynga thinks it could be such big business that they’re trying to trademark the term “With Friends” to protect their branding. And it looks like they’re doing so with good reason – Fusible.com is reporting that inXile Entertainment’s CEO Brian Fargo may be trying to trademark 12 different “With Friends” games of his own.

12 different trademark applications were filed with the US Patent and Trademark Office on August 9th by a company called Roxy Friday, LLC. Fusible reports that Brian Fargo is an active officer with Roxy Friday, and that included in their previous applications was a game called Platform Racing – an iPhone title that was released by – you guessed it – inXile Entertainment.

So what titles are Roxy Friday, LLC trying to trademark?

  • Farkle With Friends
  • Gin Rummy With Friends
  • Canasta With Friends
  • Yacht With Friends
  • Mahjong With Friends
  • Cribbage With Friends
  • Backgammon With Friends
  • Dominos With Friends
  • Pinochle With Friends
  • Solitaire With Friends
  • Sudoku With Friends
  • Crosswords With Friends

Not that I’m looking to pass judgement here, but how exactly do you play Solitaire With Friends? I mean – it’s right in the name. Solitaire.

Despite my personal criticisms (hey – I’ll be as excited for Farkle With Friends as anybody) it seems like a smart move to get all of these trademarks in now before iOS 5 comes out next month. The latest version of Apple’s mobile operating system will include a ready-to-use asynchronous multiplayer option through Game Center that developers can take advantage of, and at that point the floodgates are going to open. We’ve heard from more than a few developers who are eager to take their existing products and add the feature, so there’s no doubt a slew of new titles in the works that will be doing the same.

And if Roxy Friday can’t secure the trademarks for some reason, a little twist on the phrasing couldn’t hurt too much. After all, it worked for the Battleship-inspired PirateFleet For Friends.

. Whist good hygiene is a great routine whether you have acne or not, washing your face aggressively or repetitively will not reduce or prevent your acne from occurring. The aggressive approach to cleaning may actually do more harm than good. There are many acne commercials that seem to depict a pore clogged with dirt and their face wash comes in and miraculously cleans and clears the pore and then you see a picture of a blemish free actor smiling

The HairDo extensions add color, volume, and length to any woman’s hair without requiring any drastic changes.

Clip-in extensions are lightweight and can be clipped in easily by anyone.

In addition to their fabulous extensions, which are available in a number of lengths and styles, there are now new HairDo wigs. HairDo wigs come in several styles including Long and Lush, and the Bob. Their lush colors range from the darkest colors to the lightest allowing you to find the exact color you are looking for in your HairDo wig.

HairDo wigs are made from Tru2Life fibers that look and feel like real hair. This heat friendly synthetic fiber makes it easy to flat iron, curl, or blow-dry the HairDo wig. Using a temperature controlled flat iron, you can easily achieve any straight look. If you use a curling iron, be sure to hold the curl for approximately 60 seconds, then clip and allow cooling for the curl to set. The new style stays locked in place until heat-styled again.
