Bout pits mobile photographers against each other

Internet funny guys CollegeHumor have released a game that seems to combine mobile photography with the popular card game Apples to Apples.
Bout challenges friends to send each other photos on a particular theme. The photo that is the “funniest, weirdest, and awesomest” wins. Themes include "something contagious," "art made from desk supplies" or "something you shouldn’t put in a taco," and your only limitation is your imagination.
The photos are then reviewed anonymously by a judge who selects a favorite to win. If a submission is too funny to keep to yourself, Bout allows you to share with Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
While Bout is free to download, starting a game requires coins. Users get 200 free coins with their download and can earn coins when they win a game. Once you’ve run out of coins, you can purchase more for $1.99 for 400. To start your second bout, you need 350 coins or 15 friends.
Bout is currently only available in the iOS App Store, and needs iOS 6 or higher.
