Guess that URL!

It comes in a box, with cards that give the names of well-known web sites. I.E.,,,,, whatever. Names that look like they'd be easy to draw. Of course, the rights to these pages would have to be set up ahead of time... that's the tough part. But they might welcome some advertising.

It's like regular pictionary, but with a twist. I dunno. I thought I'd give it a shot. Maybe it could be played over the Internet and people could email each other the Paintbrush-made images they've been drawing. Hmmm.

I have to say that while I think this game would be hard as hell (draw!?) I like the idea a lot. I'm drawing one croissant for you.

Excellently done, waugs.

Now this is just plain silliness.

I like it. :)

This a gem, particularly the [Waugsqueke] scenario.

Nice - I think it's the way most "creatives" come up with logos too.
-- liamdelahunty, Mar 01 2003

Oh, I disagree with that [liamdelahunty] unless you are only referring to those creatives that have double quotes about them.

<I wish I could remember what the "[waugsqueke] scenario" was.>
-- bristolz, Mar 01 2003

bristolz - Yeah, creatives in italicised quotes, with lashings of scorn poured on. The type who spend four days rationalising the work, charge thousands of pounds/dollars/euros and still only have had the same idea as your second-cousins teenage dog...

MSN netmeeting has a shared whiteboard that could come in handy
-- Parvenu, Mar 03 2003

How about that... I just rediscovered this one, and I see that the 'waugsqueke scenario' has been restored to its original home by last fall's rebuild.
