its hard to draw with my mouse, music and everything else were great, but you need two people to play the game at the same time for the game to take full effect

Nice game it's a game where you can play with friends and draw.

If only it had pen pressure.

Why did it take someone so long to come up with this!

It's like heroin - I can't quit!

The Drawing Grounds is a great alternative to the ad-infested Draw Something clones you find around the internet. The game is extremely well made and is polished to a nice shine. The game has nice transitions between almost everything and they can even be turned off! Overall, Drawing Grounds is a fantastic game with great music. I look forward to hopefully seeing some more updates from the creator and can't wait to play it even more.
