*A complete list of members signed up for the game are at the end of this OP.

Ok, you go to the following site, sign up, and we're good to go. It starts with a text description, the the next person draws a picture of what is described, the next person describes the picture with text, and so on until the predetermined number of "levels" are completed. We can make it public or make it private just for all of us.

Here are some examples of a completed game:

Just what is Broken Picture Telephone, you ask? Why is it the game of miscommunication?

Broken Picture Telephone is a game similar to the childhood game of Broken Telephone - the game in which children sit in a circle, and whisper a sentence or phrase in a circle.

If you've ever played the game, you know that very quickly hilarity ensues. Broken Picture Telephone is the web-incarnation of that old children's game, with a slight variation in how it's played. Rather than whispering words to strangers around the internet, the game alternates between words and drawings.

And yes... hilarity does ensue.
So, anyone up for it?

Re: Let's all play Broken Picture Telephone.

Cool concept. I signed up, but there don't seem to be any games going on right now.

Re: Let's all play Broken Picture Telephone.

Once we get a certain number of people registered we can start a game. We need at least five, and it can go all the way up to 45 I believe.

If you want to jump into a public game, go here:

http://www.brokenpicturetelephone.com/join

Once you submit, you'll be notified once the game is complete so you can read it all.

Re: Let's all play Broken Picture Telephone.

I started one in public, just so there's one to try since there are none there right now.

Once enough of DVDTalkers register, we list our usernames and whoever starts the private game enters all of our usernames so that only they can reply to the game. I'm pretty sure that's how it works.

Re: Let's all play Broken Picture Telephone.

I was hoping for at least 11 to do the first one, but we can go ahead with just five if you want.

Re: Let's all play Broken Picture Telephone.

I started one. You may want to put the list with commas so it can be cut/pasted into the box they give you for players.

Re: Let's all play Broken Picture Telephone.

"error: game cannot be saved to" And I thought it was such a good picture.

edit: It went through on the second try, but I don't think it looks as good.

Re: Let's all play Broken Picture Telephone.

I'm playing random games, and I just had to draw a cigarette laughing at the death of communism.
