Zynga Launches Hanging With Friends Mobile Game

Social games maker Zynga is launching a new mobile game called Hanging With Friends, which builds off the hit game Words With Friends that it acquired late last year through its purchase of Newtoy. The latest mobile game replicates the game of hangman, much like the first game copied Scrabble. It is available now in Canada on iPhone, and then will roll out more broadly with both free and premium versions.
