From the simple aim of drawing and guessing, players can now make it a point to collect all the Draw Something badges and display their finesse in the game. There is a special allure to the gameplay as the things needed to be drawn and guessed in achieving a badge are a complete secret.

On the game, Draw Something, the badges are special awards given out for drawing a special set of words that contain a special correlation or considered to fall under a specific theme. There are currently 20 Draw Something badges available but with further updates, this number is expected to increase.

How to Get Draw Something Badges

Earning a badge on the game is simple. All you need is to draw things associated to the theme expressed in a specific badge. Once these all the drawings required by the badge are successfully guessed by the other players, you earn your new badge plus extra coins.

    Excellent advice! If you get frustrated you can check out somethingdrawn.com/draw_something_badges.php for the complete list of required words for each badge. But caution… Spoilers!

    Very hard to get words for badges. The words that are given as a choise to draw very rarely match up to any of the words needed.

      Really a stupid way of making us draw more and more without any idea on where we are going. There should be some way of directing us towards the goal of completing the badges. The makers of this game should be more creative or this badges thing is completely nonsensical.

    It is annoying when you get hints
    what to draw to get badges but you don’t get a chance to pick the word recommended. It also says the badges you earn shows up in your stats. How do you see your stats? And who can see your drawings? I have the paid version of drawsomething.

    So, is anyone compiling a list of words yet for which badges there are? Sorry if I missed it if so (hard to read on small screen). I had six words so far.

      Yes, Pix. As I put in the first comment above, the list is on somethingdrawn.com already. I actually posted a reply to you 4 days ago with the link but apparently it is still “awaiting moderation”.

    Too much mystery making Badges seem unreachable! The confusion takes the fun out of the game – ‘re-think and make it playable’. Love the game, tho!

    How do you see other’s badges? Or can I only see my own?

    Already got two badges and extra coins. Very cool, but I don’t see anything for player stats and no one can see my badges. How do you display them?

    But what good are the badges? What do they do for you? Just the challenge? Not worth pursuing!

    The badge system is frustrating and nonsensical… if you could pick a badge to earn or a badge option was presented in each round it would make more sense and be a lot more fun… as it is it is just sucks.

    Great idea poor execution. Hire some interaction designers… or at the very least do some user research.

      Heya Alan,Cheers!! I just wanted to work with a name from behnid an alias I can express myself from a blank slate with no baggage and truely say what I have/want to say at that time. It also allows the music to speak louder than the person which is what I want to do! And I like the word! =)Shauna

    I understand how to get them but ‘badge words’ hardly ever appear on the list. It will take forever to get all the words for one badge. If the badge words are so sparse it doesn’t seem worth it to me, feels like a pointless lot of effort. Make the words more available

    I don’t have badges on mine… Is it because im on a windows phone?

    I have no idea how to start a badge! I get hints to draw things but can’t click on it. When and where do I draw what it’s telling me?
    Also, I don’t have the daily challenge., is there a reason for this? Playing on ipad. I have the weekly one.

    Badge words have little gray ribbons next to them. There is also a tab that says badges. tap it and you will see the badges. tap the bade and it will show you the words. the ones you have and the ones you need.

    When I finally get a “badge” word, oftentimes the other person either takes forever to guess, guesses incorrectly, or the “user resigned”. Then I don’t get my credit towards that badge.
