Battleship, Yahtzee and Connect Four will follow Scrabble's lead for the launch of Hasbro Family Game Night on Xbox Live Arcade in March.  (Your dogged opponent appears to be Mr. Potato Head, and he's inching mighty close to the Scrabble tile sack.)  Boggle, Sorry! and Sorry! Sliders will take up the rear guard and launch at later dates throughout the year.
