    Pretty cool multiplayer Pictionary game

    Hi Guys

    For once a post about something I did not make myself
    One of my friends just finished translating his Pictionary game to english and I think its pretty damn awesome.

    He is however looking for a bit of feedback but is not the huge forum guy himself so he asked me to post it here.

    Check it out over here

    I won't lie! THAT GAME ROCKED!
    I couldn't help getting caught in the guesswork! Tell your friend he did a great job, and that it's a great idea!

    I like that it tells if you are close to a word like "boat" is close to "sailboat". Some work has definitely been put into it!

    I shall be sure to tell him!

    Also if some of you guys have ideas for wordlists, they would be appreciated!

    I'm pretty sure the sync is all screwed. I just got done playing a round, and the time continues for a good 5 seconds after the word was guessed. And 2 out of my three turns drawing, my round was just ended before the word was guessed or time ran out.

    Nice. However if you are going to call it "english" at least use proper english. For instance, "sofa" is a couch and "candy" is a sweet. Both versions should be accepted. Apart from that a really fun game.

    As I said write us a new wordlist!

    The problem with such wordlists are that they contain all kinds of stuff thats simply irelevant or to hard to draw, for a much better game someone who actually think it would be fun has to sit down and create their own.

    Really great game! I do find the design a bit annoying, but other than that it's loads of fun.

    The game is very fun and addictive. I can see it fitting right into miniclip or yahoo. I think it could use more graphical polish as far as windowing prettiness but that's the only minor complaint I can come up with.

    One of those concepts that makes you say - "wish I had thought of that".

    Doubt it, I'm on a gigabit connection here. It lag was truly the culprit it would have had to have been the server, with all 4 of us playing...

    Perhaps the flow of the game just seems a bit shy of smooth. Seems like there's more action than direction and it's pretty confusing. Oh and is there anything that seperates this game from Yahoo! Grafitti? It's almost a clone.

    This game is amazing! I love it! I'm addicted already. I played for only a little while and started to see some of the same words again, so just make more words. Don't want to win on memory alone. lol

    Thanks for showing me this game, it's amazing and it's tuns of fun. Tell your friend this game is a great contribution to multi player flash games, and thanks a lot for this spectacular game. Keep up the good work, Agent Q's friend

    It might be my peering at home. I host it on a home server for now its on a 40/40mbit connection, but who knows how its peered into the intertron.

    Related to if its a clone or not, I do not actually know, but I think it would be hard to do a game like this any other way

    I shall tell him you love the game

    Related to word lists, you are so right, we have had the chance to get a bit of action on the game this evening and it was pretty obvious that we need much larger wordlists.. care to help?
