Draw Something!

April 20, 2012 - Kim Collette
I have to blog about the newest and flashiest app for smartphones.....Draw Something! Draw Something is the latest game from the publishers of Farmville and others. It is basically a social drawing and guessing game, a mobile Pictionary if you will. In the game, you draw clues your opponents have to guess, the twist is that the drawings animate in real time.

While I was "googling" the Draw Something phenomenon, I did find some interesting tidbits. According to Gamasutra website, a few days after the app launched, the developers noticed the game was growing fast....and on it's own. On it's release day, 30,000 downloads were reached. After about 10 days, the downloads reached into the millions. Even celebrities started tweeting about the game from Pauly D to John Mayer sending even more "artists" to the app.

I have to admit, for me, a person who absolutely hates anything that has to do with being artistic, I love Draw Something. I currently have 10 games going and I hate to draw! Now....I will say that I am not the best drawer, but I hold my own. Up to this point in my experience I have drawn everything from a barn to to an Ewok to LeBron, which keeps the game interesting and fun. You can "bomb" away words you don't want to draw or letters to help you guess what your opponent is drawing. As you are playing and guessing words correctly and having your drawings guessed, you can earn coins that allow you to "purchase" additional colors to make your drawings even more fantastic!

I am not going to go into any more detail. Just download the app and start enjoying!

Until next time friends!

P.S. If you don't have one yet....get a stylus or "electronic pen" and you'll draw even better!
