The new $180 million game – Play Pictionary with your friends, called Draw Something

The game is super fun and addictive. The first time I opened the iPhone app I played for an hour and a half. I drew all sorts of ridiculous things with my finger, which made them horribly bad, but also over-the-top funny.

The game has become so popular in the last 6 weeks that Zynga bought the entire company, OMGPOP, for $180 million based on this one game.

It plays kinda like Pictionary except over the internet. Which means that your drawing is recorded and then sent to the other player. You receive the video and watch the other player draw something while you try to guess what it is.

An old concept but with the dawn of social networks we know have hundreds more people to play with. No more Saturday night game night. You can play while waiting at the airport, like I did.

Go ahead and try it, and challenge me to a game if you want!
