Since the last BPT is stuck for a while, I'm making a faster version of Broken Picture telephone

Broken Picture Telephone is a game where five or more people are separated into two different groups – Interpreters and Artists – and play through PMs. The Interpreter's job is to briefly describe something, then it is the Artist's job to draw the description. Afterwards, the next Interpreter describes the picture they see to another Artist who draws it out, and so on. After the last player submits his entry, the final results are shown to see how random (and funny) it can get.

If you wish to see the previous rounds, click here.

  • You have 24 hours to finish your interpretations or picture entry.
  • All interpretations should be only one or two sentences long. Do not try to describe every pixel you see in the artworks.
  • All art submissions must be at least 512x512 square PNG files. They don't have to be masterpieces, but don't make them incomprehensible either.
  • Use only personal messaging or the like for transferring your entries. Do not give hints to the next player about what to write/draw next.
  • You must not make your artworks or interpretations public. The results will be posted once all the entries have been received at the end of the game.
  • Announce as soon as you send your entry to the next player.
  • If you do not submit your entry in three days, you will be disqualified.
  • Make sure to save your entries until the end of the round.
  • Balesz
  • Frizk
  • Additional slots are available before the second-to-last player submits his first entry.
  • The order of players will be shuffled as soon as the game begins.
  • The game can only begin after we reach 10 participants.
    Have fun!

I still don't agree with the 'fun' rule, and I don't get what is meant by "This is available for both artworks and interpretations".

(Now I hope people will still add references to the community, and I won't be mistaken... :P)
Perhaps you could simply encourage people with a sentence like "If you feel like it, add a reference to a community member!" to the notes. That could make people get ideas without having a detailed 'rule'. :)
