    Hi All,

    XLabz is back with a surprise for all the gamers out there! Sketch W Friends; the latest addition to our ever growing list of PlayBook apps- is a real-time, multi-player game of Pictionary.


    Sketch W Friends for PlayBook is a real-time, multi-player word game that draws inspiration from the two classic games of Pictionary and Charades. Sketch W Friends lets you compete with other players and puts your creative and vocabulary skills to the ultimate test.


    The game starts off by players joining a game room. One of the players is given a word to draw while the other players guess the word being drawn. The guessers can see the doodling by the player in real time - as he draws it. Login through Facebook and keep score of your game and of the other players on the leaderboard!

    Sketch W Friends is also available for the iPad and Android Tablets. Whats cool is that, this game is truly cross-platform! So, you can now sketch with friends who are on other platforms as well!

    Download Sketch W Friends from the BlackBerry App World here.

    Dont miss out on the fun! Join our community on Facebook for all the latest news, updates, surprise giveaways and rewards! Like us here: Sketch With Friends | Facebook

    Catch all the action on our website: www.sketchwfriends.com

    We hope all of you will have many happy hours of playing Sketch W Friends! Do email us with your feedback and suggestions, if any.

    just bought it, but mind if I make a suggestion? make it free for a limited time period for all platforms. this is a game that would be better with more people playing. whatsapp did this when they were first launched, free so people started using it. then they start to sell it. people will still buy it because all their friends are on it already.

    similarly to draw something. they had free versions so everyone just downloaded it and played. then they have another version they sell. when evryone is already playing it, people will be willing to pay for it in order to play with their friends. the fun is where the people are, and frankly currently most are on draw something.

    this is a superior game as compared to draw something in my opinion. live is definitely more exciting.

    if you guys decide to run the promo, I'll definitely help promote it to my friends.

    Glad to know that you like Sketch W Friends! And thanks for your suggestion. I guess you read our mind, we will soon be releasing a free version of the game with restricted game play, for the very reasons you just pointed out.

    Thanks for being an early adopter and trying out Sketch W Friends. And we hope you will help us promote the game in your circle. We will be in touch when we release the free version.

    I've been waiting for this game since you submitted it for approval! I was so excited to find it in my morning search before I left for work! One question though, does it only work over wifi? I've been trying to connect with my phone bridged and it keeps giving me a server error. Wasn't sure if my phone signal was just terrible...

    Question,

    Can I play with specific friends in a closed chat room? Or similarly, can a friend and I find each other and play in the same room?

    I doesn't seem so at the moment, but I'm sure they'll tweak it in future updates if we ask nicely

    I love this game, but would see a few changes/additional options:

    - The time limit is quite short, it would be nice if we had an option to set the timer.
    Other players were complaining about this too: there's nearly no time to fill the word in and hit the return button, especially when there's lag here and there.
    - A private room would be nice (as suggested by Feldmen01).
    - Will there be other languages available in the future (then we'll need national rooms too)? In my case, a Dutch version for example. Sometimes, I don't really understand the word I'm reading, which is a real disadvantage compared to native english speakers.

    But I'm very pleased with the quality of the application: it's neat and it's working like a charm!
