Love love love. Ideas: tell us how quickly they guessed the word so we know how well we did! Add a fill tool! Get rid of the drag swatch to canvas feature, it's too easy to replace one of your colors with white by accident.

Let us sort the game list. At least sort games waiting for our turn to the top. Don't show a game on the list until turn 2; the hanging turn 1 games are just clutter.

I'll be adding new sorting in a bit. I understand how cluttered the menu is getting!
