Maybe I'll post a doc on FB later today - that might help.
It's fun, it's healthy, it's good exercise. The kids will just love it. and we put a little sand inside to make the experience more pleasant.

Toto's drawings, always a pleasure. His Danny Trejo dove image had me literally lol'ing.

My wife and my sister have been playing for a while now, and "Messi" was one of the puzzles my sister had drawn for my wife. 2 problems:

1 - None of us knew who or what Messi was, so it was not top of mind while guessing, and
2 - My sister thought she had clicked on "rocket" so there was nothing descriptive of "Messi" in the drawing. (It was, however, an excellent rocket.)

Further, when my wife gave in and asked her a couple of days later, she thought she had drawn rocket, and was no help.

Finally, we used the poor-man's bomb (restarting the app) a few times to narrow the letters down and after such words as "semis" and "mises" didn't work we successfully tried Messi.
It's fun, it's healthy, it's good exercise. The kids will just love it. and we put a little sand inside to make the experience more pleasant.

Do you know if the FB versions are put up immediately or after the other player guessed it ?

Holy friggin' hell you lot are talented. I'm not going to give you my Draw Something username as I don't want to embarrass myself with my crappy drawings!

(I'm using an iPhone, it's way harder than using an iPad - even my stickmen look rubbish!)

Those are fantastic, Toto. Of those, your Weird Science and your Matrix are my favorites.
The :) means it's all ok.

I don't know what they've done to the app recently but it won't work for me any more. Not only will it not work, it causes my phone to hang where I have to remove the battery to reset it. I'll give it a while to see if it sorts itself out but if not it will be uninstalled.

He was glad to get it.

They've been doing cosmetic updates mostly, but the latest update has added in occasional "special" categories that allow you to play for extra coins. A² just drew a pic for me that netted us 7 coins each.

My daughter really enjoys playing this game. I've quite a collection of images on my iPad that I've been meaning to share here. Stay tuned...

I haven't seen these yet. Do you have to be special in order to get the special categories?

maybe :mishchief:

They don't appear every round. Most of the time, these categories cost bombs to access as well, as best as I can figure.

The drawing playback speed makes me feel like I'm on speed. :lol:

Got a 15Mb update yesterday and it seems to be working again now.

I'm still playing. My username is my "full" name (what the initials stand for) if y'all want to invite.
La la la la la.
