Hunger Games‘ fans got a surprise on Friday when they loaded Draw Something. The addition of seven words related to the novel and movie franchise!

Game creator OMGPOP recently added the ability to update the game with new words, particularly pop culture and news references. Coinciding with the release of The Hunger Games in theaters, words pertaining to the book were also released into the game.

Hunger Games fan or not, Draw Something players are likely to see Peeta, Haymitch, Gale, Effie, Tribute, Reaping, and Primrose show up as options of things to draw. So, if you’re a Draw Something fan, I hope you’ve done some brainstorming on how you’ll be able to portray those terms.

OMGPOP was purchased last Thursday, March 22, by social gaming giant Zynga for a reported $210 million in cash and employee retention payments. While OMGPOP was able to add the additional word functionality on its own, developers hope to add even more features to the game. “There are more features people want in the game, and there’s no way we could scale enough people fast enough,” said OMGPOP CEO Dan Porter to Mashable after the sale. “The game is so large that you need a really big scale.”

Some features OMGPOP hopes to add to the game now that it has Zynga’s support: in-game chat and the ability to save and share drawings outside of the game.

Will you be drawing ‘The Hunger Games’ or watching?
