How do I Play?

As soon as your friends have joined you, click the “Start Game” button to reveal three options to draw.


Note: Each drawing is assigned a difficulty level (easy, medium, hard) determined by a set amount of coins; the more coins the word is worth, the harder it is to draw, and the more challenging it is for your friend to guess your drawing correctly.

After selecting a word, you will see your drawing board where you can now draw using different colors and line widths in a limited amount of time. The timer is displayed in the upper right corner.


Pencil button - allows you to draw a free-form line with the selected line width.
Eraser button - allows you to erase a certain part of the drawing.
Trash button - allows you to erase the entire drawing.

Note: You will get 0 bonus points for unguessed drawings.


After your turn, wait as your opponent chooses a word to draw.


When it’s your turn to guess your opponent’s drawing, watch out for the timer in the upper right corner and the available letters below the drawing board so you can immediately come up with a word to answer before the timer runs out.
