TSR Chinese Whispers!

I really enjoyed this game a few years back so i am reviving it :woo:
This is just a simple take on the classic game one would play when you were younger, and is adapted so that it can work online on a forum. It involves drawing and describing.

How it works

So how this works is as follows. I will ask for people who want to play, and after we have a reasonable number (20 is nice, 26 max) the game will begin. People will be placed into a randomised order.

I will then PM the first person with a statement, the first Chinese whisper. This person will have to draw what I've described in Paint, and upload it to a site like Imgur. They will then PM me this picture.

I will then PM the next person in the list and show them this picture. They have to PM me back with their own description of it, being as brief or descriptive as they like.

I will then PM the third person, and show them this description. They draw, upload it and send it to me.

This cycle repeats until we've gone through everyone. It's all done is secret so as to keep up the suspense and prevent any bias. At the end of it, I'll show off the entire whisper chain from start to finish, and hopefully we'll have come up with something both hilarious and embarrassing for all involved, be it cause you're a terrible artist or you can't describe very well

A few key rules to note, obviously don't share what you've described or drawn anywhere else on the forum or to anyone, that kind of ruins the surprise. In pictures please don't use words or numbers to try and hint at what's been drawn, and pictures must be 500x400 in size (widthxheight). And for everyone involved, please don't blatantly lie or intentionally try and ruin the flow. As everything is being PM'd to me, I'll be acting as a sort of filter, and if something is amiss I'll ask you to redo it, or may end up skipping you're just being silly. If you dont respond within 2 days I will have to skip you to keep the game going.

I'll remind everyone in their PM as to what exactly you're doing (Be it drawing or describing), but if you have any questions please do ask in the thread.

There's no need to be a good drawer the more terrible the better as it makes for a funny reveal at the end :ninja: plus if you want i can make sure you get sent a picture and then you just have to think of the word it is not draw the picture? :hugs:

Quickest way to put screenshots from your computerTM onto TSR. You take the screenshot, then you go to imgur.com/upload then press ctrl+v and then you right click, select "copy image address" and then you can upload the image using the button between the paperclip and the camera+ on the toolbar. Does this make sense?:curious:

Create an account on there, then you can upload image files easily by clicking 'new post'. It should then provide you with image links, which you can send to other people. :yes:

I didn't know that! Though not having an account would surely make it difficult to keep track of your images? :hmmmm2:
