If you owned an iPhone in 2012, there’s a pretty good chance you played the runaway Pictionary-ish game Draw Something. People like drawing, and people like guessing what people have drawn; it’s a pretty standard recipe for fun. Now, imagine that you’ve got nine players in the mix, that there are no wrong answers for what people are drawing, and also that you might not join the game until the original subject has been drawn and re-guessed by several people. That’s SketchPhrase, and it’s your free game today — Pictionary meets “Telephone” meets the Internet.
A player starts a round of SketchPhrase by simply typing in a word or phrase of their choice. For example, some games have started with “There is no spoon” or “Ice Cream Disco” or, in the case of my game, “Me and your mom last night.” Oh, Internet, you paragon of maturity and creativity! Once that phrase is picked, the next player in line is tasked with drawing it. That drawing, in turn, is sent to a new player, who interprets the drawing with their own phrase, without knowing the original clue — and then that phrase is drawn by the next player. This goes on until nine players have weighed in with drawings or phrases, and then the completed evolution/disintegration of the concept is shared with the entire group for maximum hilarity.
It’s a delightful new wrinkle on social drawing games, and you can get the premium version for free (there’s also a free version with less premiums) through AppGratis today.
Oh, and, here’s ‘Your Mom and Me Last Night:’
Just because you have no class, Internet, doesn’t mean I don’t know how to spend a perfectly nice evening with your mom.
