What do you get if you combine Scrabble and Pictionary, both of which happen to be published by Hasbro? Well, you get something like the latest iOS game from Hasbro and DragonVale developer Backflip Studios.
In each puzzle, you have to guess the down words associated with the stock images at the top of the tile columns and the across words associated with those at the beginning of the tile rows.
Sometimes, the associations are obvious. But often the right words are not immediately apparent:
Whats the right 4-letter word associated with that photo of a man fishing? Is it fish or lake? Maybe its bait? Decode the photo and use your word skills to progress to the next level.
If youre stuck in a level, you can use one of your hints, which automatically get refilled after a few hours, or ask your Facebook friends for help.

Scrabble Pics contains 125 crossword puzzles. Being a fan of games that require visual deduction and vocabulary skills, Ive been playing through the puzzles with the ultimate goal of solving all of them. Ive found the game to be quite challenging and occasionally frustrating, but hey, thats what makes it fun to play.
Backflip has also partnered with Hasbros Wizards of the Coast on a new mobile game based on the the hugely popular fantasy tabletop RPG Dungeons & Dragons. The game is said to be a castle defense game inspired in part by Backflips Evil Dead tie-in game, Army of Darkness Defense.
