There is a new type of word game available on the App Store where friends win together by guessing the same word. From the band OK Go, Say the Same Thing is a turn-by-turn game where you and a friend begin by selecting a random word. Once the words are in play, the two who are playing must find a common word that connects the two words together. You both win by saying the same connecting word in the same round.
