April 2, 2013 - Player list bug fix

I have fixed a bug that was showing names in the player list incorrectly when they contained certain characters. I have also made a pretty major overhaul of the code that should be transparent to you, but if you come across any weird errors that weren't there before, please let me know.

January 20, 2013 - Player cap added

I have added a player cap of 30 people until I can come up with a way to reduce the resource usage that a high number of players has been generating. Hopefully this will prevent the game from being disabled in the meantime.

How to Play

Words That Follow is a multiplayer game of photo captioning. Getting started is easy! Choose a name for yourself and then create or join an existing game. Once the game has 3 or more players, everyone will be shown a photograph. You will have a limited amount of time in which to come up with a creative, witty, or brain-meltingly terrible caption for the photo.

Next, you are shown a list of all the captions that the rest of the players wrote. All you have to do is choose the best (or the one that hurts the least). Make sure you choose one, though! If you don't vote, you can't get any points yourself.

At the end of the round, all the votes are counted and you gain points for each vote you received. Initially, votes are worth 1 point each. After 3 rounds, they increase to 2 points. In the final round, each vote is worth 3 points!

In addition to the extra points in the final round, players are also presented with a special rule that should be followed. These can include writing a caption that sounds like a Public Service Announcement or creating a caption that fits a given acronym.

So, why are you still reading? Start playing!
