EDIT:
The app is online! you can find it here: [geekurl=https://fake-artist.herokuapp.com]https://fake-artist.herokuapp.com[/geekurl]
If you want to help you can categorize words here:
word list
I'd love to hear more suggestions!

What's next?
1 - Implementing an option to have a question master
2 - Collaborative online canvas


ORIGINAL MESSAGE:
So, I'm thinking about making a web application for this game a-la spyfall.meteor.com, but I have 2 problems:
1. I need to know if it's something that you would use?
2. I need a List of words divided into categories.

any suggestions?

If the app would be for finding good words to draw, then yes, that's something I'd use. Finding a good word as the Question Master is always the hardest part!
I haven't come up with any useful lists after a short look around. Maybe you could start one or somehow crowdsource it. Come up with categories (there must be other games that have categories and things to draw or describe - like Barbarossa, or Cluzzle) first and fill with things, or just collect a list of things and sort them into categories (or have them sorted by lots of people using something like an online cardsorting tool?).

Ok, my genius wife told me to get the word list from Draw Something, which must be drawable by definition..

You got some good categories, I changed mine to match yours.
we got around 400 words categorized, I'm starting to fiddle with the application itself..

And it's online!
ok, I've taken the categorized words and made an app that serves as a Question Master for Fake Artist. you can find the game here: fake-artist.meteor.com.
using this app eliminates the need for a Question Master and allows everyone to play. another benefit is that it uses the words from draw something, which are very drawable


the application is based on the excellent Spyfall application found here:
spyfall.meteor.com

Love the APP. Looks really good.

Is it possible to add an option to not display the Category to everyone or maybe just the Fake Artist. I think in the game you only get an X to tell you are the fake artist, while the category will give you a pretty big hint as to what everyone is drawing.

Cheers,

- Brent

Also it would be nice to have an option to add your own word as the question master instead of using your supplied word list!

In the actual game everyone gets to know the category, including the fake artist. I think it's a pretty important rule, actually - I wouldn't change it.

Ahhh good to know. I'm trying to make a home made version as the one here is a bit steep ~$45 CAD. Going to wait till it is released at it's normal price to pick it up.

heya Brent!

thanks for taking a look.
a big advantage of the app is not having to use a question master - that way everyone can participate. this is also very good because I'm not so skilled with JavaScript

I know this is not as interactive, but you can add words to the word-list I've linked above, and categorize the words we do have.

I might try adding the option to have a game master that chooses the word and category tomorrow.

This is an absolutely awesome idea. I would suggest hidinh the fakeartist/notfakeartist icon along with category and word when using the show/hide function.

a quick update: I'm working on an option to share an online canvas so that you could actually draw with the app.
no more whiteboards!

It's not working for me, after being asked to enter my name I just get a spinning gear/wheel icon. Is it working for others?

Is there a new link?
fake-artist.meteor.com is not working.

Is the google doc still being used to update the app? If so, I can fill in categories.

Meteor.com has taken down their hosting service,
and I haven't found the time to find another host.
but since you are interested I'll try and upload the app again by the end of the month (I'm traveling and don't have access to it right now)

Just ran into that this weekend when we went to play.

You've done a killer job so far Alenros and we would hate to lose this app! Let me know if there's anything I can do to help
