Catscratcher: those are other ng members. they can take their turn whenever they want or not at all. i recommend starting 20-50 games with people so you will always have someone to play with.

While this seems like an okay game at first glance, I found myself looking for a set of instructions or goals or objectives that don't exist. So after that I figured it's probably intuitive enough that instructions weren't needed, so I just started a new game. Picked a subject and was presented with a drawing plane. I guess I am supposed to draw the subject I picked. Drew it, finished it, apparently this means it's another player's 'turn'. Turn? What is a turn? Then I'm taken back to a screen with another user's name greyed out and... that's it. Can't do anything else. Game over? Did I lose?

I feel I'm probably missing something really obvious, but for the less intuitive of us, could you please write a set of instructions to explain how the game works?
