    To those of you waiting for the price to drop, it's $3.99 now. A little more appropriate if you ask me.

    To those of you who didn't wait, my condolences. :)

    I tried the online mode but... Just me there! I thought I'd find a lot of gamers at this point... I'll try it later.

    there's always people on when I play.
    like most games, it could use some work. but I think it's a pretty good game
     
  5. nice

    did they add new words to it yet ?

    i really don't wanna buy that and just have the same words over and over

    they should just dump a buttload of words in there to make people happy

    no reason not to :[

    mine kind of bugged out on me when I was playing on my terrible home wifi connection, and the signal must have become so weak that it automatically switched to edge.
    (canceled my service today, and am changing providers.)

    however, I played a game driving (carpooling) home from work using only the edge connection and it worked flawlessly.

    I went ahead and got this, and it's pretty fun. The word list IS pretty low as I saw many repeats already. How much do the words repeat? Well I had one instance where the person didn't draw anything and 2 people eventually guessed the answer. Could have been a case of cheating though (few people playing together from same room or something). I don't think it was the bug as I have the latest version. But it's not unthinkable that people just started throwing in random guesses and got it.

    Things I would like to see, is a chat function for after you get a correct guess. Would be cool to see what other people are guessing too, at least after getting a correct guess (definitely while drawing - if you see a bunch of people writing box when your drawing a book could help you make some adjustments). Also would be nice if the drawing continued after you got a correct guess. I mean right now all you get to do after a correct guess is sit there and watch a timer.

    Hhmm - not a good first experience for me

    I purchased this and gave it a play last night. Once at 6.30pm and the other at 8.00pm. I found it really just didn't work.

    The first 3 drawings I sat through I saw nothing on the screen. For the 1st drawing no-one else guessed so I assume they also did not see anything. The next two drawings two people guessed correctly, but I didn't see anything at all. Just a blank page! The 4th drawing went well. The drawer managed a banana and everyone guessed this. The 5th drawing was done by a moron who thought it would be funny to draw a penis. I only got to see part of the 6th drawing. A curved line. Two people guessed correctly. It was meant to be a comb. I don't know if the drawer stopped when someone guessed right or if they kept going and I just couldn't see what happened. So onto the 7th drawing where again I saw nothing. I then had to exit the program to prepare dinner!

    I got back on at around 8pm Melbourne Australia time. Just me and one other person. They were hanging around in the lobby. I went in and out of the general section until they followed me in and we played a really brief game. They went first and drew a snake. Then I tried to draw a church and I heard a whistle sound. I assume this means they accused me of cheating?! And then they were gone and I was all alone.

    I'm left wondering if this is a good idea that just doesn't work in practice? Why was I only seeing a blank screen? Were people just not drawing anything and others just guessing based on the known word list? Or is it an infrastructure problem to do with webservers and internet speeds?

    And as for the penis drawing moron. How can such a person be banned if you choose a name when you login? Wouldn't it be better to register accounts like you do with Chess with Friends, etc?

    I'll give this another go on the weekend. Hopefully there will be more people playing then.
