Phrase Cards is a free-to-play, online game based on the 1960’s classic Mad Libs, packed with new features that brings one of America’s favorite party games to the 21st century. This isn’t the same game your parents played, Phrase Cards gives users the power to host massively multiplayer games, create stories for other users to play, and participate in a variety of game modes. If you have a favorite Phrase Cards story, let everyone know by voting it up, it could end up on the fan-favorites leaderboard. Phrase Cards is a great activity to include at any event, with a variety of story themes to fit with your Halloween party, Star-Trek marathon, Friday afternoon cookout, Book-club meeting, or secret cult ritual. So when you can’t get all your friends in one place, or want to make a few more, log on to the Phrase Cards chat room and start up a game!
This project will be a unique variation of the classic mad libs, features that we might include are massive multiplayer games, user stat tracking, image based stories, competitive matches, spectating, and many other upcoming features. Large public rooms, private rooms with password, voting system with a leaderboard for popular blank madlibs, or for the best completed madlibs, user profiles with stats and achievements, as well as a tags system to be able to find games of a certain theme or type. Picture enchanced gameplay.
The game will be turned based. The default mode will have "hot seat" style rotation of each player to be the "card czar" each turn. The other users will submit a verb/noun/word to the card czar, who will choose which of the words to use for each blank space. The user whose word is chosen will get a point, points will be totalled. One mode will have a single player will get to fill a blank word of the mad libs story and afterwards the turn will pass to the next player. There will be a chatroom for the other players who are spectating in the meantime to give them time to communicate and connect. Other features of the site will be to provide saved instances of games between participants to reminisce and perhaps share with others.

I have been a web designer for 8+ years. I have worked for design companies and have had my own web design company. I came back to school to get my degree in computer science and further my skills to become more of a web developer rather than just a designer. I am now in my last semester and will graduate in December.
