    ...also known as Broken Picture Telephone.

    Here's the description on the home page

    Just what is Broken Picture Telephone, you ask? Why is it the game of miscommunication?

    Broken Picture Telephone is a game similar to the childhood game of Broken Telephone - the game in which children sit in a circle, and whisper a sentence or phrase in a circle.

    If you've ever played the game, you know that very quickly hilarity ensues. Broken Picture Telephone is the web-incarnation of that old children's game, with a slight variation in how it's played. Rather than whispering words to strangers around the internet, the game alternates between words and drawings.

    And yes... hilarity does ensue.

    You sign up and voila! Have cracked up many times reading through some of the games.

    Here's an example of one I participated in

    Edit: hope this isn't old

    I've been reading and giggling through the 'best of' all morning. =)

    Well, bang goes Sunday.

    Really hard to draw with a mouse...

    It is really hard to draw with the mouse in such a tiny box, but I suppose that all adds to the fun :)

    This is REALLY not good for productivity. I can see myself constantly coming back to this site. Already contributed to about 5 games.

    This is so much fun!

    A game I contributed to just completed and had me in tears of laughter :D

    (although my drawing did suck quite a bit. I'm crap at drawing but can usually convey things fairly well, except specific animals, which I fail at)

    Everytime I submit a picture, it upoads it but kicks me back to the previous screen, no record of the game is in my previous games data. :( Happens every time, I can submit text entries though. :(

    You won't see the record until the game is finished. You'll get an email telling you when the game is done with a link to the finished page.

    It even has a 'Boss Alert' button, which I hear would be quite useful for iSketch :)

    Yep.

    There are some really good artists out there too. I'm guessing they're not using mice to sketch though, right?

    This is a better timewaster of a site that FML... and funnier still. Genius.

    They can't be - on such a small drawing area, anything done with a mouse just comes out looking abysmal
