There are talks about Zynga buying Draw Something. I am not sure how I feel about this. Seems like all Zynga been doing is buy on success or if they don't get it, they will come up with their 'own version' of the game. It sucks they can't come up with their own material lately.

That's how they do it... buy the company, or copy their app if they won't sell.

Zynga Just Bought OMGPOP For $200 Million

https://allthingsd.com/20120321/look...r-200-million/
Quote:
Looks like OMGPOP, the company behind the overnight sensation “Draw Something” will end up at Zynga, after all. The gamemaker had been talking to several suitors over the last few weeks. But as TechCrunch reported earlier, it has been in serious discussions with Mark Pincus and company for the past few days.

Now Zynga has scheduled a call for a “news announcement” for 3 pm eastern. I’m going to go out on a short limb and assume it’s to formally acknowledge that they have bought the company. [Update: No limb necessary. It's a done deal, according to people with first-hand knowledge. Here's more detail on the price: $180 million plus another $30 million or so in employee retention payments, Im told. Don't know about cash/stock split.]

My sources tell me the purchase price will be in the neighborhood of $200 million, perhaps a bit higher. The company had raised around $16 million over the past five years.

No comment from Zynga. I haven’t heard back from OMGPOP CEO Dan Porter.

Zynga will get a New York-based team of about 40 people, and a series of games that OMGPOP has produced over the past few years. But the obvious target here is Draw Something, a sort-of social Pictionary game played on iPhones and Android handsets.

The game is astonishingly popular, and the iPhone app sits atop iTunes “top paid” and “top free” lists, which is very unusual. Even more unusual: It is also the top grossing app at iTunes, based in large part on in-app purchases players make. People familiar with the company tell me it has recently been netting around $250,000 a day from the game — that’s after Apple takes its 30 percent cut.

Zynga is a Facebook games powerhouse, and has been steadily acquiring smaller companies with hits on their hands. Two years ago they paid $53 million in cash and stock for Newtoy, the company behind “Words with Friends.” OMGPOP has played with Facebook games itself, but while Draw Something is Facebook’s “most popular” game, it’s not really a Facebook game at all. Intead, users login with their Facebook credentials, but play the game on standalone apps.

Draw Something’s astonishing success may have made it tempting for the OMGPOP folks and their backers to consider taking a large funding round, and keep going on their own, a la Rovio and Angry Birds. On the other hand, just a few months ago, OMGPOP had been thinking about raising money under vastly different circumstances — “things did not look awesome”, says one investor — and then Draw Something hit, out of nowhere.

“No one had any idea that this would take off, and no one knows why it did,” says another OMGPOP backer. Now no one has to figure it out — they’ve taken all the risk off the table.

lol, i'm bored of the game now. I check once a day now, or not even.

And 99 is the max you can get, so now that I've maxed with that friend, feels like there's nothing left to do.
And collecting coins seem pointless, since I can't do anything with them.
I already have all the different colours, and buying shades of one colour seem pointless since I don't plan on drawing a masterpiece.

My friends are guessing the picture before I'm even 1/4 done when I'm trying to do a masterpiece. What a waste.

I think maybe they need to add more "upgrades" so you can buy better stuff besides just more bombs or colours.
I'm still bored even if they just simply increase 99 to 999 max.

I hope there's an option to enable or disable the notification.
When I saw my friends playing on their iPhones and saw that they have notifications.
I thought that was annoying and was glad my Android didn't have that "issue". LOL

Well, just that some things like text and email deserve to have urgent alerts,
but not some game, where it will only make you more addicted than you already are.
