    I'm still kinda annoyed that a whole bunch of games I was in haven't finished, or they have, and I just haven't been told.

    Just look under "my previous games".
    Probably they haven't finished though.

    I wish the site let you view past pictures before games have finished, I've done about 40 of the buggers, and only a fraction of those games have actually made it to completion

    Hey, 15 completed games landed in my inbox over night. \o/

    I like how in this one someone elses picture looks like mine right down to the red exclamation mark. :)

    This one turned out good.

    The games really need to be longer than 11 frames to be good.


    In other news, I found an old Wacom tablet thingy. \o/

    Are EG'ers still playing this or has the fad passed over now?

    Still pretty committed to playing it every day.

    I gave up because I got frustrated with so many of my games not coming through. I created a few, NONE of them have finished. It's very good, but it feels like a bit of a waste of time. Only about 50% of the games I take part in actually finish, so it's just not worth it.

    I'm totally hooked myself.

    I was surprised to find myself as the only artist in this one.

    The more you play though, the more of them that will get completed.

    I've given up because I've got loads that have never completed. Doesn't seem worth it any longer.

    Yeah, it's a bit of a Catch-22.

    If people stop doing it, games will take longer to finish and then less people will play and then games will take longer...

    Well I think there might be a slight problem with the site:

    It says that there are 27753 active games right now

    yet I've been told:

    "Hmmm... It doesn't seem like there are any more games available to you!"

    How's that work?

    Have you set the "draw only" or "describe only" option in your profile?
    seems hard to believe even then that out of nearly 30k games there's none left where you can do what you selected to but hey.

    Mario gets addicted to WoW - quickly goes off track though, and gets hilarious at the end.

    yes! I need closure on that anecdote!

    A strange game. The only winning move is not to play.

    Both this week and last week, a game I started (over a month ago) finished.

    Here's the latest.

    I've had games finish recently too.

    Despite going off track very quickly, this one features the most number of awesome drawings I've yet seen in a BPT game, particularly towards the end (and the very last drawing!).

    this one just finished too

    I really hoped this one would stay on track long enough to get a good picture, but again it went instantly off track. However, it did end up with some hilarious pictures in the middle.

    I love the way that it stayed so consistent after completely mis-construing the original idea in the first drawing. :)

    There seems a rather strong coincidence that all the ones I started just came through in the last day or so, despite having begun them several weeks ago. Plus I seem to have got the same one or two dickheads who drew random shit.

    And all your games from a month ago are finishing too now. Hmm...

    Given that there's currently 32339 active games going on right now, it's probably not surprising that so many games are taking so long to finish. Maybe there should be a limit on creating new games.
