Cute. This makes for a fun lower-level ESL activity, by the way.

also called 'telephone pictionary'

Previously. Previouslier.

Though this is a different version of the game and I would be telling a fib if I said I didn't already jump into several games.

Proof (as if we needed it) that everything is better with Batman.

Also this. But I love the web interface.

WOO! I love these games mainly for the delight of reading finished games. My faves so far:
- White boys trying to be Asian women in Africa
- Titanic fights Optimus Pryme
- Hot Dog likes to watch himself in the mirror

Is there no way to register outside of FB/Twitt, etc? Ugh...

I was all ready to try this, but I'm not willing to register via some other site. They could at least support OAuth. Oh well.

Also: The relatively unknown EatPoopUCat, which supports image uploads (Advantages: use your favorite drawing program and also thereby (theoretically) play it on your phone; Disadvantages: clip art).

Better than my name for it, "Draw-y Sentence-y"

Used to play this with physical post-it notes and pens during church youth group meetings 30 years ago.

(we used post-it notes so after everyone was done we could stick all the components of the chain up on the wall for maximum hilarity and group viewing.)

I've been waiting for the day when refusing to join things like Facebook and Twitter might exclude me from something socially enjoyable, and it's only fitting that day is April Fool's Day.

Yeah, I was introduced to this as "Broken Telephone Pictionary" at a campus social event several years ago. Nice to see it making its way online, though.

Compared to Doodle or Die, which was posted a few days back, this is amazingly free of trolls. Actually fun to play, rather than sonic style cccccombo breakers in every single one.

I'm on there as defenestration.

Also previously, Doodle or Die.

The trolls are out in force today, which seems to be the problem with this sort of game. Alas.

This is fun! One of my first drawings was in a game that started with "Reddit".

This needs to be an app now that I've deleted Drawsomething because the CEO of OMGPOP is a dick

I know this isn't a support thread, but I wonder if there is a way to halt signups, or be on notice for your first few chains or something. Or maybe you can only play with other people in your social graph? Or there is a premium section that costs 5 dollars? How do you deal with trolls?

Wow... the drawing interface is really, really bad.

Draw Something as (early) 90s desktop game. Man alive do I miss those disk sounds.

For what it's worth, I've improved my experience slightly by magnifying the window by an extra 30% or so, which makes the window less small, and less prone to getting screwed up by losing focus.

My drawing hand is numb now and I blame all of you.
