As we've now passed over the year since the last telephone pictionary ran, I (Cheery Dog) am taking it upon myself to have it run again.

Telephone Pictionary (also called Eat Poop You Cat, Fax Machines, Gartic Phone and probably some other things) is a game of silly miscommunication. The results of the most recent game can be found here, and they'll give you a better idea of how things work than any description I can type. Drawing--and drawing under 72 hour deadlines--is required, although talent isn't necessary. (Effort is still appreciated!)

Status: Everything is in. Everything is up. Everything is awesome.

Players:
  1. Cheetory6
  2. Farren
  3. VashtaNeurotic
  4. NotAJumbleOfNumbers
  5. Haschel Cedricson
  6. tris
  7. Sirius9121
  8. chamber
  9. Korina
  10. Nexus
  11. N
  12. CaptainMeme
  13. xofelf

  15. Jake the Wolfie
  16. StrangerCoug
  17. DrippingGoofball Save The Dragons
  18. schadd_
  19. Aristophanes
  20. Chickadee

Rules from the last game because still very relevant
Cheetory6 wrote:tl;dr: Fast chains get fast reveals. Slow players get replaced. And your chain had better not corrupt any innocent 13-year-olds.

Sentence deadlines are 24 hours.

    Game Flow:
  • Everyone signed up should start by PMing me with a sentence. It shouldn't be incredibly long, but it can basically be as silly as you want it to be. Some good examples can be found in these chains, but please don't copy those exactly.
  • When the game starts, each of these sentences will be sent out to a different player. This player will have 72 hours to portray that sentence in picture form and send me the result.
  • Please don't actually take 72 hours every single round. If you're busy sometimes, that's fine, but if you're consistently waiting until the last day, please keep in mind that other people might be waiting on you. This isn't technically against the rules, but don't make me disappointed in you!!!!!!!!!!
  • When you get a picture, you have 24 hours to send in a sentence summarizing it.
    I'll send you pictures to summarize as sentences as I receive them, even if you already have other things to draw/write. Please send in sentences promptly! It shouldn't take too long.
  • You'll only have one active picture to draw at a time. I might send you sneak peaks of future sentences, but you won't be under any deadline obligations for those until later. (But feel free to complete them early anyway!)
  • Each chain will continue for 13 of these rounds: 7 sentences and 6 pictures. Chains will be posted on the wiki as they are completed, which will probably vary wildly.
  • If you cannot meet a deadline, please notify me as soon as you've received the sentence (or picture)--or, better yet, tell me before you receive one. I will find somebody else and send it there. I will also do this automatically if you have not drawn it in 72 hours.
  • If you miss a picture deadline, future deadlines shrink by 24 hours. I might restore the full time after a few rounds, if I don't have to prod you under those conditions. (But please just try to not miss deadlines! That's the best approach.)
  • Somebody who consistently fails to meet deadlines will be kicked out of the game at my discretion. Especially somebody who doesn't announce V/LAs beforehand. So don't do that!

    Picture/sentence standards:
  • Any drawing program--Photoshop, Flash, MS Paint--will do. Drawing pictures by hand and scanning them will also do. Making a diorama with paper cutouts and silly putty and sending a photograph of that will do. The sky is pretty much the limit here. In fact, if you can get your hands on one of those airplanes that draws pictures out of fake clouds, then the sky is literally the limit here.
  • Having said that, please draw everything from scratch. You can use Google Images as a reference, but don't paste other people's pictures into your own.
  • Words are completely banned. English letters used to denote words, and codes (camel octopus dinosaur eagle snake), will also be sent back with a stern warning, although if it's relevant you can use them to portray the alphabet. Numbers and symbols and math are all fine.
  • Please don't intentionally mislead anybody--do the most accurate non-legalistic picture that you can. The chain will find a way to mutate anyway.
  • Pictures should be 800 pixels wide by 600 pixels tall. Please don't go too far over that; some of us have tiny laptop screens. Photographs are best saved as JPGs; otherwise, if in doubt, you should probably save as a PNG. Do not save as a BMP under any circumstances or I'll have to ask you to reformat it before sending it onward, and nobody wants that.
  • Please be mindful of where you upload your pictures to. Tinypic deletes its pictures without warning, and anything uploaded to the wiki is accessible by other players. Most people use Imgur or Discord uploads these days.
  • When you upload, don't save it under a name that will hint at its origins. This is something else that you'll need to reformat over.
  • Okay, on to sentences. Keep it to one sentence and don't be too legalistic about what you are summarizing. If you don't think the picture is about the fourth wall, don't break the fourth wall.
  • Please don't break the site rules. Keep it reasonably safe for work, and preferably not too gross. Please don't make chains about poop, okay?
  • I am one of those spirit-of-the-game type hippies. If I'm forgetting a rule, I'll let you know. You might be asked to resubmit in light of this.

    Miscellaneous:
  • Please don't talk to other players about the sentences/pictures you got. If somebody tells you anything about a chain you haven't seen yet, please let me know.
  • I will note in-thread if somebody is behind.
  • If you haven't sent a link in within 48 hours for a picture, I'll send you a prod. Other actions may be taken if you're inactive for the full round.
  • Have fun! If you aren't having fun, you should talk to me about it, and I'll do my best to find you a replacement. You can also talk to me when you are having fun, of course.

Credit to Ether/the Telephone Cat for the ruleset and for generally being the wizard who made Telephone Pictionary a thing in the first place.

Don't forget to send your starting sentences!

I will accept them over discord or other methods of contacting me, although I'd prefer them to be sent to the Telephone Dog account.

I would like exactly 20 players as I've now made the spreadsheet work with that amount, but will adjust to more or less if that many people sign up before I close the signup window.

Sometimes when I'm thinking of a track to submit, I think to myself "okay I could submit X, but I know a lot of people won't care for it, there's no point in wasting their time and mine". Glad to see [CaptainMeme] isn't burdened by such thoughts.

If anyone would like a suggestion for a better-than-mspaint app to draw, paint.net is a good app to use.

It's like MSpaint, but it has layers and transparency.

I guess we have enough players to actually run.

I'll leave signups up for another ~36 hours though. (Or we actually reach 20 players, whichever occurs first)

If you name isn't in bold in the OP, I haven't received a starting sentence yet.
