This is really what NG needed, a nice, simple, but stylishly decorated drawing game. Been having a lot of fun with it, thanks! :D

Would be a 5 if it was more reliable and didn't freeze while saving.

There doesn't appear to be a way to check your previous drawings to other people (at least I haven't figured it out), which is a shame. Love to check the art portal though, some of you guys are pretty amazing.

Mattster responds:

That feature doesn't exist... When you take your turn, it overwrites previous drawings (I didn't want to be flooding the NG servers too much) It's really amazing to see what people have published to the portal though!
