Scrolls updates to “super friendly edition”, adds Friends list and chat commands


Hurling cards at monsters in aid of destroying menhirs and whatever else might be standing in front of them is better with friends – or at least, that’s the thinking. That’s why Mojang have dedicated much of their recent Scrolls tinkering to implementing a functional Friends list.

“Befriend and be merry,” they write.

This latest patch is called 0.103.0, which sounds terribly young. As with all things Mojang, Scrolls will be in beta for a good while yet. That said, it now features a number of new Scrolls, bug fixes, and that Friends list – but not Decay, a long-awaited card resource the developers promise will be introduced in short order.


The Friends list includes a ‘Find’ function, the welcome ability to ‘Ignore’ other users, and something called ‘Whispers’ – something I can only speculate players will use to exchange tactical advice under their breath during matches.

Several chat commands have also been added. Type ‘/help’ in-game to find them.

You’ll see a full changelog below. Are you an early adopter of Mojang’s follow-up to Minecraft? If so, how’ve you found it?
