Surely you're one of the eighty zillion people who have downloaded and played Words With Friends [$2.99 / Free] with friends, family, coworkers, and random weirdos you don't even know. It's a great game that I can't possibly recommend enough, despite the fact that it was recently assimilated into the Zynga borg. If you dig these kinds of asynchronous online multiplayer word games and are looking for a new fix, you've really got to give Prose With Bros [$1.99 / Free]. It follows a similar model as Words With Friends with a fully functional ad-supported version of the game that you can try first, along with an entirely optional $1.99 ad-free version for people who prefer tossing out a couple bucks to being inundated with advertising.

So what's Prose With Bros all about? Well, if the blatantly obvious title didn't give it away, you form prose, with your bros. Each player is given the same set of words, and they've got to string them together in the most amusing way possible. You submit your prose, and a panel of bros judge your work over the next day. Whoever gets more votes wins. Check out this exhaustive walkthrough the developers provided us:

I'm not entirely sure if Prose With Bros will have the insanely long lasting appeal that Words With Friends has had, but if you like silly multiplayer word games, there's really no reason to not download the free version and give it a spin.

    This is kind of amazing... I've only done a couple but they are really fun. It's also fun just voting on other people's poems.

    However, I've had it format my sentences wrong and even leave out words after I submit my prose once or twice... hopefully this will be fixed soon! Even so, I can see myself wasting a lot of time with this. I'm 'sweetdiss' if you want to battle...

    I'd love to see the percentages on the ones I vote for after I vote. Just to see if where my opinion rates.

    I thought it was pretty dumb and deleted it after a few hours. Most of the poems are crass and have no artistic merit, yet those are the ones that 'win.' If they followed a model closer to the Haiku app then you might have something. Other than that, it's total garbage in my book.

    I love this game but, if it is truly meant to be poetry, it is verse with bros, not prose.
