Excellent game, if the playerbase keeps growing it will keep me entertained for months!

I really like the interface, it's very simple and that makes it very intuitive, and the possibility to pick custom colours allows players to fully express their ability and creativity.
Also having a pre-written message to send to other players saves a lot of time, so nice thought!

If i may suggest you a few improvements, i think it'd be nice if there were an integrated system to comment the drawing of the person you're playing with; also, i noticed that there aren't that many words to guess yet, i'd love if we had a few more.

Still, this is a cracking little game, i really love it!
Thank you so much for your submission!

I had a lot of fun drawing on this. The color selection is perfect. I've never seen an in-browser application have a decent palette before. Also, I haven't found anyone to play with yet. Someone start a game with me!
