Whose Headline?

A game of guessing who published the headline.

I wrote this game at the NYC News+Gaming Hackathon. It was based on an previous idea I had worked on whilst at The Times.

Feel free to improve it and send pull requests.

Ideas

  • Sort the top users list correctly
  • Take users straight to the game upon sign in
  • Add lots of statistics and graphs showing which sources get confused, which headlines are most distinctive
  • Auto remove headlines which are always guessed correctly (they probably have an obvious clue in them)
  • Allow users to adjust the number of sources in the pool they guess from
