Great fun!

This is be of the best app games I've played. Something to use my brain, be challenged, yet able to enjoy. I rarely pay for a game but the additional games were worth it. I hope they add more soon!

Fun and funny

Love the paintings. This game is a wonderful way to view the artwork in detail. The gameplay is great fun as you discover all the sayings depicted. Worth the $ just to look at the paintings. The game is an added bonus.


I have this poster framed on my wall since I was 12, I'm Now 41 and I see it everyday. I have found the app of all apps, period.
