Eat poop, you cat! Yes, it's that game, but with a scosh of beta-ness and a dash of Web 2.0bility

Ooh, cool....but why can't I create a private strip? Beta?

I find that the game suffers when not done in real-time with people you know. The drawings are too good, and you can't give cues to the next person in line.

Still, good to get people playing the game!

I hate websites that require javascript to be turned on before they'll show you anything, but I love the game, and I love the idea.

I can not stop playing this. Even though I draw like a 5-year-old.

Is it weird that I always knew this game as Paper Telephone?

Agreed, this thing is awesome.

empath, I am flattered that you picked a strip to which I contributed! My username shows up as "mistera"...

Shit, let me tell you, these kids are doing it all wrong. In my EPYC games we have a few unwritten guidelines:

1. Hilarity will ensue from the nature of EPYC, if you let it take its course. Don't try too hard to make it funny. In particular:

2. Don't make shit up that obviously wasn't there in the picture or text that was given to you.

3. Do your best to include everything that you think the previous player was trying to say. Obviously, you'll have to make your own interpretation, but don't forget rules 1 and 2.

Our games are the funniest. (No, sorry, I have no "gifs" or "jepgs" for you. Paper. Get off my lawn.)
