Draw Something Zyngafied

2012-04-12 1 min read

    We’re aware of Zynga’s purchase of Draw Something and Zynga’s emphasis on analytics and metrics to drive product features and decisions. I’m a bit late to the party but I tried brainstorming to put together  a Zyngafied version of Draw Something:

    • Favor drawings that require colors that a user does not have to encourage the user to buy new colors.
    • Leverage the priming effect by picking words that will encourage users to spend more. For example using the words “gold”, “coin”, and “rich” would put users in a buying mood.
    • Charge more for the more popular color packs.
    • Include “limited edition” color and word packs.
    • Reward active users with free color packs, bombs, etc.

    I, for one, am glad that I got to play Draw Something before it turns into this money extraction machine.
