I wanted to share a little codenames web app I made in my spare time. The app lets you open a codenames board in a browser on a large screen (like a TV). Other devices can connect to the same board and optionally, see the spymaster view. Players click on a cell to choose it, and all devices will see the update.

I know there are other apps for generating boards, but I don't know of any that let you replace the entire physical board.

You can try it out at: www.horsepaste.com



Here's a more complete description: http://www.jbowens.org/p/codenames-board-generator

Looks very nice. I would suggest making the assassin a bit more obvious.

How does one connect so the "same board"? It keeps bringing up a new board.

When you open up a board, the url in the browser should change to a URL unique to that board. If you send that same URL to another browser/device, it can open up the same board.

Great work! I also found this app, The Curator, that is similar to Codenames: Pictures. I played a couple times with friends and it's pretty good.
