Were you a fan of Win, Lose or Draw ? If you don’t know what that is then what about the board game Pictionary ? If any of these sounds familiar to you then you already have a basic idea on how to play Sketch Online.  Sketch Online is a fun, fast-paced online multiplayer game where you can play with your friends or with random strangers on your Android. The game is simple, you basically have to guess a word based on what’s drawn by the other players.

Choosing a room

When you load up the game you have the option of picking which room you would like to play in (Misc, Difficult, Animals, etc) where up to 10 other real players will be waiting to pit their drawing and guessing skills against yours. Once a player starts drawing the timer starts and everyone starts guessing the word as they go. The drawer gets points for people getting the word and viewers get different level of points based on who guesses first,second, etc. It’s so simple and amazingly fun.

The gameplay is surprisingly smooth and even running on only an EDGE connection, I was still able to play the game without much lag or hiccups. This game is a lot of fun, especially when you have a friend or two looking over your shoulder – everyone wants to get involved. The negative side of the game would be some players who can’t seem to comprehend the objective of the game and start writing out the word for people to “guess”. Kicking them out of the room will be the best solution in this case.

Do give it a go and see, better yet get your friends involved and see how much fun it can be. Be warned though that this game is highly addictive; I somehow managed to spend 1 1/2 hour on it without taking a break !!! 😀
