To make the game interesting everynow and then I think random events should happen.

Events can include:

#double pot (pot doubles by itself)
#triple pot (pot triples by itself)
#guess team effort (splits the room into teams of 2 people first team gets the points)
#draw team effort (randomly choose one other player to also draw, difficulty being you dont know what the other person is doing)
#half time (only half the time to draw but you get more points if you succede)
#pass it on(if you think the word is insanely hard you can pass it to someone else or you can keep it, passing it means you loose 0 points.
#double go (get two gos)
#ink limit (you have a limited ammount of ink so use it wisely)

and so on. other ideas would be great,

55 people think this is a good idea

I think these are all great ideas -- I'm especially in favor of adding a random "double pot" or "triple pot" --- or "QUADRUPLE pot" feature -- to give more people a fighting chance of making it into the top rankings.

Lots of good stuff.

[[really long post ahead]]

Ever play Uno when you were a kid? Remember the "Skip" and "Reverse" cards? It would be interesting if we could incorporate those into gameplay. Perhaps for every 10k points you get one or the other at random that you can implement at your draw.

So say I'm drawing and I'm before Konqi and after Hollz (to name somebody). So if I play "Skip", Konqi's draw would be skipped; if I played "Reverse", Hollz would get the next draw. (sorry that it disadvantages you both times :( )

It's not random and could be a pain in the ass (or arse) to develop, but it would add a new dimension to strategy. The only problem would be if everyone decided to prevent a specific player from sketching by using the cards to his or her disadvantage.

WOW bunch of good ideas. I'm really liking this because right now we're forced to entertain ourselves... This would definitely keep people more focused in the game.

I think these are fantastic ideas.
It would make the game much more fun-ner.

Especially the team-effort stuff

I have an idea!
#Connections (Include the previous drawing in your picture, unless you don't know what it means or it is WAY to hard.)
