Zynga is bringing Scramble With Friends to Google Play.  The latest mobile game from Zynga’s ‘With Friends’ franchise, Scramble With Friends’ is now available for Android devices.

Launched this January 2012, Scramble With Friends lets players compete against their opponents to beat each other (and the clock) and find as many words as possible on the game board. Each match consists of three two-minute rounds, and the player with the highest point total at the end wins.

Currently players shake things up with approximately 16 million rounds played per day and have used the freeze power up more than 400 million times on iPhone and iPod touch, says Zynga. Scramble With Friends is the fourth game in the ‘With Friends’ franchise of games, including Words With Friends, Hanging With Friends and Chess With Friends.
