Fake Artist Companion
We discovered this fantastic drawing game after it was featured on Polygon’s Overboard but found while trying to play it that the setup was very awkward - especially for new players. This app replaces the whole process making it much faster and easier.
The app has two modes - an online room option where each player joins on their own device and privately views their word, and a single device version where one device is passed between players.
- Enter the number of players on the first screen and press play.
- Each player privately selects their number and views the prompt word.
- One player is secretly chosen as “Fake” so does not know the prompt word.
- Players take it in turn to add to a drawing until each player has drawn two times.
- All players vote on who the fake was.
- If the fake is not chosen correctly they win.
- If the fake is chosen correctly but they guess the prompt word the fake wins, otherwise the other players win.
