Special Thanks to Giulia Alfonsi for providing the stopwatch timer JS (stopwatch.js) James & Matt of WDI Purple-Rain for help with troubleshooting! Cyrus for array advice.

Unresolved Issues:

-providing a solution and pausing the game when player hits the pass button -fine-tuning of point score system -not repeating the random images as they are served up (splice was attemtpted) -code is NOT DRY, became a bit lengthy and requires a bit more efficency


Players are greeted with a screen showing the iconic IBM rebus by Designer Paul Rand.

Player clicks on “start” button which randomly loads the first bottle-cap rebus onto the screen. A headline above the image reads player one and a visual timer starts with a pass button, guess button, and text box appearing beneath the image.

Player can make up to 4 attempts to solves the rebus by typing a guess into the input box and clicking on guess. Incorrect guesses are logged and shown above the top image corner. The timer stops once four guesses are made, the pass button is clicked, or the correct answer is given.

Points are awarded depending on the time it takes to solve each rebus puzzle.

Game alternates between player one and player two until all the images are cycled.

A win screen shows the point total between player one and player two and announces the winner.
