Draw something. Anything… – Features – Gadgets & Tech – The Independent

Draw SomethingThe booming popularity of a two-player game called Draw Something is causing a slump in workplace productivity. Not dissimilar to the board game Pictionary, the free app requires you to express words such as “xerox” or “voodoo” in picture form, with your stubby index finger as the paintbrush and your phone as the canvas.

Thus far, the game has racked up 30 million downloads and more than $100,000 £63,000 in revenue from players buying “bombs”, which allow them to cheat by skipping undrawable words such as “tempest” in favour of easier options such as, er, “door”. At the time of going to press, it was also set to be snapped up by social-network giant Zynga the company behind time-shredding titles such as FarmVille and Words with Friends for $200m.

Strange Random Drawing Quote:

The whole essence of good drawing – and of good thinking, perhaps – is to work a subject down to the simplest form possible and still have it believable for what it is meant to be. – Chuck Jones
