We removed the required update message so you can play until the update is available. It should show up soon. We'll be turning the required update message back on in a couple days, so be sure to update.

Great to see this. I'll be coughing up for the in-app purchases as soon as my phone gets a signal!
Quick question: Have you fixed the issue of the 5th/final word being revealed if it is not guessed correctly?

Moving on from that though, I was just wondering what your thoughts would be on either tweaking the scoring system slightly, or making games longer than just 5 rounds?
I'll tell you why I say this, and that's because although I often play a 5-person game online with 4 other people, I do also often just choose to play a 2-person private game with one other friend.
The problem with the 2-person game though is that because we both get to draw just as often as we guess (alternating back and forth between 1 drawing and 1 guessing), we invariably end up with the same scores.
OK, sure, a lot of the fun comes from just the playing aspect of it, but who can deny the thrill of truly crushing your opponent with a score way superior to theirs?!
So anything that could be done to increase the discrepancy in scores would be good, at least in my own personal opinion. I'd be interested to hear other people's opinions on this too.
- Maybe private games could be longer than 5 rounds? (Maybe we type in our own chosen number of rounds? Or tap on a multiple choice range between 5 and 25 or suchlike?)
- Maybe guessing the word really really quick could give you more points than it does now, and guessing the word later would just give a much lower score?
- Maybe there should be more of a difference between the scores achieved when drawing correctly as opposed to guessing correctly?

What do you think?

This was a great update. Definitely thinking of picking up Lightning Round

I had a question: Is there a penalty for leaving a game early? Sometimes I feel bad if I leave before Round 5 ends, like I left the game early or something... So is it frowned upon to leave the game whenever? Or is that okay?

Probably a silly question, but I thought I'd ask for clarification.
