I don't know what's happening with Draw Something but apparently 30/50% of players prefer not play the game and write directly the word I have to guess.

I don't like it so I prefer to Pass and abandon the game with that player, but it seems not possible to do, at least on Android, after you have passed. The only possibility I found was to exit the game, relaunch it, and perform the action already described here.

It is a bit annoying considering the high percentage of these players. Do you know any workaround for this?

As far as I know, this is the only way... It's annoying, isn't it. – GnomeSlice Apr 17 '12 at 18:39
yea, you have to pass, then draw nothing, then resign. – l I Apr 17 '12 at 19:04
Looked around and @GnomeSlice is quite right, but i didn't find any good source about =X – Michel Apr 17 '12 at 20:19
@yx. Well, nobody says you have to draw nothing... I like to draw a large hand giving the middle finger. – GnomeSlice Apr 17 '12 at 23:48
@xy You are right, no other way. Post it as answer I will mark it and eventually change in future releases. – Drake May 2 '12 at 18:00

You click on the persons name who you want to end the game with then swipe left to right and click on the X .

At the moment it seems not possible. The only ways are:

  • quit the game and relaunch it


  • just pass, draw blank (suggested by @xy in comments)

and then quit the match using dedicated gesture as described here.

Well on the menu where you have the name of player you want to stop playing with you simply swipe your finger to the left on that game which will give you a red button stating delete which will delete that game/player from your list of current games

Hi Momin, welcome to Arqade! This answer doesn't actually answer the original question, and might get downvoted. To add more information, use the edit button. – Steve V. Jul 11 '12 at 1:19

There is a new update 'coming soon' that provides

  • Sharing drawings on Twitter and Facebook
  • Save drawings to your devices’ photo library
  • Notifications for Android devices
  • Increase of the max streak from 99 to 999 (you guys are rocking it!)
  • Pull down to refresh game status
  • UNDO button for your last brush stroke
  • Even better performance
  • More words
  • And a slew of other fixes and tweaks Source

In that update, I thought I read somewhere which allowed to the player to skip other player's drawings if they were not playing properly. (needs confirming)

The new update doesn't fix the issue. Please avoid writing answers if you're uncertain they're true – JohnoBoy Apr 19 '12 at 15:51
