Draw Something Changes The Game Quickly For Omgpop

At a cocktail party on the second floor of the expensive Bowery Hotel in Manhattan on Thursday night, as trays of stuffed mushrooms and thinly sliced filet mignon circulated, Charles Forman was marveling at how quickly things can change.

"I had $1,700 in my bank account yesterday, and now I have a whole lot more," Mr. Forman said.

The party was in celebration of Zynga's purchase of Omgpop, a New York-based game maker founded by Mr. Forman, and it was extravagant to an extent that Omgpop's employees could only have dreamed of until recently.
