Great mobile games to play with your family: Draw Something

Draw Something offers an interactive Pictionary-like style of game play.

Draw Something

As demonstrated by the hugely popular Words With Friends, Zynga — the company behind that game and this one — is adept at taking familiar concepts and giving them a twist for mobile. This game offers a Pictionary-like drawing experience, in which the object is to get your "opponent" to guess the word you're trying to convey. There is no scoring, timer or real competition, making it especially appropriate for playing with cranky grandkids and nephews who are just learning to handle losing (and winning) with grace.

In Draw Something, there are benefits to "winning" rounds — you get to add new colors to your palette, for example — but the real fun here is just playing. There's a free version, or a paid version with lots of additional puzzles.

Great mobile games to play with your family: Asphalt 7: Heat

Take to the streets with Asphalt 7: Heat and drive exotics, like a Lamborghini.

Asphalt 7: Heat

I'm very happy with my selection of free titles, but I felt the need for speed, and wanted to include at least one game with fast action and arcade-quality graphics. Enter Asphalt Heat: 7, which will cost you all of a buck to download and delivers sensational action and amazing visuals. You can choose one of 60 officially licensed cars (a dollar isn't much to pay to drive a Lamborghini, right)? There are 15 tracks set in exotic locales like Paris and Rio. Multiplayer action lets you race against up to five opponents from anywhere on the planet. It is, if you'll pardon the expression, fast and furious.
