Pictionary

It has taken its sweet time, but Pictionary (with all the appropriate copyright branding), has landed on iPhones, Android devices and, oh, even Amazon's app store. The game has two modes. For one, you're given plenty of time time to draw overelaborate masterpieces in a turn-based game, while in the other you're playing in a real-time, two-vs-two challenge, which is obviously why you downloaded the app, right? Categories cover people, places, animals, objects, actions and a spicy "Difficult" category, while you can pick and choose from pencils, crayons, paintbrushes and more to communicate that this is obviously an olive tree, why can't you see that? Stares and stern pen-tapping noises are currently are not supported.

The established drawing game has dragged its feet. Draw Something did the whole Pictionary thing many years ago, to huge success (and then not so much). That said, there's a certain clout (and search engine preference) to iOS and Android games that match your search requests exactly. The game will also generate a feed of your friends and family's awkward scribbles, if ever you're in need of a quick chuckle. The game is free to play, and is available to download now.
