I've noticed a few ads in between drawing sessions that recommend I purchase the game (instead of using the free version). It mentions 1000 more words, no ads, free stuff, etc, but who gets to draw the 1000 + words? Is it the buyer who gets to draw them and any user ( including those who haven't purchased the game) can guess those new words?

Do I have to face an opponent that has purchased Draw Something to be able to use words found within that 1000+ word bonus? enter image description here

They're giving free stuff with the paid-for version? How big of them. – kotekzot May 8 '12 at 15:31

Paid users of DrawSomething have the 1000+ words bonus. It means that when the server gives them the choice of three words, it extracts them from a bigger pool of available words.

You will not have any problems playing with "free" users, the only drawback is that when it comes her/his turn to draw, words are taken from the limited words pool.

Can you source this? This is what I assumed, but looking for source or testing reference. – Zero Stack May 8 '12 at 9:58
I searched a lot but unfortunately I have no web source to point out, only my personal experience playing with a user that has the "paid" version. Feel free to leave the question open until you get some written official reference. – Drake May 8 '12 at 10:04
I guess its been hard to tell, as they are adding words to both lists constantly - from what I've noticed. – Zero Stack May 8 '12 at 10:07
I'm willing to backup @Drake's answer based on my experience (some 500 turns). I'm able to tell which of my friends have the paid version based solely on the words they send. Words I've never seen from my free version. – Fluttershy May 8 '12 at 14:33
