It seems to be a glitch with the game. The developers are aware of it and working on it. It would seem you can't really get them back for now, but the colours you bought are safe. I suppose you will get them back in an upcoming bugfix. Veronica Belmont asked just about the same question to Joseph Alminawi and Garrett Peek, creators of Draw Something, on ...

Just tried it now, with my opponent guessing my 3-coin word and me guessing his 2-coin word. After both were successfully guessed, I see that I only got 2 coins. Thus you only get coins for successfully guessing your opponent's word. EDIT: Here, you can see that an employee answered a similar question incorrectly by saying that it is equally distributed. ...

After just testing this, there did not seem to be any noticeable delay. This was after I drew something, waited 5 minutes, then finished the drawing, and then submitted it. Once my friend received the turn, he saw the picture being drawn without any delay. The delay seems to be either cut from the game or sped up tremendously.

I have purchased 2 packs with the coins I have earned, so I can understand what you mean as I have 2 yellow colors overlapping. There are many colors within the packages shown below that you can barely notice any tint difference in play. It is completely up to you in the end which packages you would like and which tints or variations you would like to enjoy ...

Prior to the update when you hit Turn 99, the counter would remain at 99 until a word was not guessed. It would still do the animation between turns (when the counter would normally update), but the number would remain 99. EDIT: As of the April 18th update, the limit has been removed and game count past 99 appears correctly. No idea what happens past 999 ...

After trolling through https://getsatisfaction.com/drawsomething and http://forums.omgpop.com/draw-something there are no Official Rules published by OMGPOP. So, I believe at the time of this post, there are no implementations to mitigate cheating other than the player opting to only draw. Also, there should now be a delete button in the new update, ...

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.

Well, for one just go to draw something, hit the settings button in the top right, and tap help. It will take you to a help section, and your question is the very top one listed... I'll re-type the reply here for you: If you've already created an account vie email, and you want to play with your Facebook friends, you'll have to log in with your ...

Draw Something has its fair share of bugs so there is a slight chance the empty drawing is a bug, in which case using an anagram finder is the best bet to be able to continue your streak. However given that it's a random person it seems most likely that they're just a troll, in which case you're better off just deleting that game and finding a new drawing ...

There aren't any check on this, to the best of my knowledge. I often write notes to my opponent before drawing the word. Particularly if I had a hard time guessing or their drawing was funny. I have quit games with several random people for just writing the letters out. Kind of defeats the purpose.

This tends to happen when you leave the game in a mid-turn state as suggested by JohnoBoy. I have even had it skip me guessing their word and going right on to select (Since I have a few high streaks though this was disconcerting to me). I found that, on the iPad, finding the constantly running application and shutting it down, then starting the app back up ...

No... but soon you will be able to with the next update . You’ll be able to save your drawings to your device’s photo library (a feature that was requested by many users). As of now, Draw Something doesn’t have a save option, meaning that your “masterpieces” are forever lost with each new round. Sure, you can take screenshots (which many people did), ...

On the top right of your screen there is an orance little options - wheel Click on that and then tap the Account option. Then scroll down and you will find a logout button. Then you will be redirected to the main screen again and you will have to option to log in using either your email or a facebook account etc.

You can't save images in Draw Something for Windows Phone. If you're on WP8 then you can take a screenshot by pressing the power and Windows keys at the same time. WP7 can't do screenshots by default but if your device is unlocked then you can install ScreenCapture to take a screenshot.

After consultation with one of my drawees, I've discovered that when this happens, I'm not actually missing the watch/guess phase. In fact, my drawing doesn't get sent to the other person at all. My second drawing, then, completes the turn. This is disappointing - this happened to a few of my better drawings, and I now know rather than just not getting to ...

There's no option to do so in the current version of the game, you must force-quit the application and restart it. To force quit on iOS (I'm listing this for others): Press the home button to exit the app Double-press the home button to bring up the open apps bar. Press and hold the Draw Something icon until a red icon appears in it's the corner. Press ...

It seems like you aren't the only one with this issue as they do not have a password recovery system set in place [yet]. From what I have found, your best option would be to contact their support at: feedback@omgpop.com or create a new account.

If you're not receiving an email using the password reset feature in the game, then it might be worthwhile emailing their support directly using the following email address as per this question regarding resetting passwords; feedback@omgpop.com

As you have probably discovered by now, your games, colors, and coins are associated with your account rather the device on which you play. All you need to do is download Draw Something to your Skyrocket and log in; you should then be able to continue your existing games, use previously-purchased colors, and so on. This also applies if you have multiple ...

The same thing happened to me once, my friend didn't see anything bto him it was just the normal game and everything looked the same. I then accepted his 'wrong' guess and reset our streak to 1, but to him it was still on 60 or something. When I drew another one, he guessed it right and sent one back to me, my draw something synchronized to his and we were ...

I had a similar problem. I had colors I bought earlier and they didn't show up and I also lost all my bombs. I had this problem for a few days and when I bought a new color scheme it showed up for a while and then I lost access. My solution? I closed the app on my Iphone and reloaded it. Problem solved. Bombs replaced and my colors, old and new returned.

At the moment it seems not possible. The only ways are: quit the game and relaunch it or just pass, draw blank (suggested by @xy in comments) and then quit the match using dedicated gesture as described here.

This question deals with recovering a lost username and/or password. So you could delete Draw Something from the iPad and re-download it, and then enter in her existing account details. Another option might be to link the Android Draw Something to a Facebook account, and then link the iPad Draw Something to the Facebook account as well. I've done this for ...

Sometimes I want a delay, such as when I've finished the bulk of the drawing but want to practice shading and other enhancements without wasting my partners time watching me. I'll choose the eraser tool and slowly draw lines and tap white was several time. It than looks like I've stopped drawing to the other person and they can lay down that final letter to ...

It is annoying and there are no checks. I am not sure that adding optical character recognition would be worthwhile as it wouldn't even get close to 100%. The best check on this behavior is that it's actually not that quick of a way to farm coins anyway. Since everything is so expensive, the quicker way would be to play yourself using Facebook and an email ...
