This is just silly fun stuff here.
I think its funny when I played the random user games it picked out Mindchamber, Tomamoto, and JohnnyUtah almost all in a row. I doubt they are actually going to play me but it just shows that you can get matched up with ANYBODY. good stuff.
The game itself is really fun, but I don't expect to make any awesome art because of the limited options and lack of precision tools like line and fill options which does not matter as long as you can provide your opponent with a good enough drawing to know what it is, that's good enough

Its fun! I just am an awful artist using a mouse! :P
I like that you can play with people and start multiple games so you aren't having to wait on just one.
Only thing I saw that was bad is what Girz mentioned, no way to just quit Free Draw. The loading thing was annoying, especially so if you had just finished a drawing. D:
Overall it was really fun and simple.

Simple and fun. Very well done! I need to find more people to play with on NG.
Only tiny issue I had with it was that 'Free Draw' doesn't let you back out unless you draw and save something. Might be good to add an option to just quit Free Draw and return to the menu.
