Am looking to have an online game (hosted on a linux server) that enables registered users to enter auto generated and/or private rooms (that would be limited to x number of players) to submit funny captions for images displayed.
The basic gameplay would consist of the following:
A single image is shown. The players have xx seconds to submit a funny caption. At the end of this time, all captions are shown to the room's participants - minus the author (so nobody knows who submitted what). Players cannot vote for their own submission, and can vote for only one other of the entries. The voting time limit would be based on a forumla of so many seconds per caption (i.e. if there were 3 captions, maybe there would be 15 seconds to choose one... if there were 10 captions, then perhaps there would be 50 seconds to choose one). At the end of the voting, all captions are shown along with the authors name and the number of points received.
A cumulative scoring system would also be included on the page to show the running score. A complete game would consist of x number of rounds, and the winner announced upon the completion of all rounds...
A really good example would be found at [url removed, login to view]
Would also need the ability to insert advertisements in the place of the photo in between rounds. Also would ideally like to have a chat window available for players to chat in the individual rooms.
