With frazy you can play charades with your new best friends; random people on the internet.
Frazy is a multiplayer charades-ish style game. Guess the meaning of the actor's movements to gain points and win.
Click on the start playing button to start the game. You'll be dropped into an existing room or a new one depending on availability. You'll start the game as an observer where you'll make guesses based on card clues and actor gestures. If you'd like to act out the clues, click 'Join Queue' in the actor queue box. 2 players are required. If you're alone in the room, the game will begin when a second player joins.
As the actor, your job is to act out the word shown in the hints box within the time limit. As you are acting out the word or phrase, other players will submit guesses based upon your actions. The guessers cannot see the full word but do get letter hints at random points in the word (kind of like a half complete wheel of fortune board). When actors are in the queue, actors are limited to 3 words before a new actor is put on stage.
If you are guessing, it's important to note the guess history which shows incorrect guesses from all players.
Correct guesses will earn points for both the player who guessed correctly and the actor. In fact, the actor gets double the point value of the word or phrase... because let's face it, acting is hard. After a player or actor accumulates 15 points the round is over.

You nailed it with the charades / wheel of fortune combo; that was definitely discussed to try to give guessers a better advantage if the actor is doing a poor job. We'd rather have people who play the game feel smart rather than discouraged.
We also have variable control over the percentage of letters in the word that is presented to guessers. I believe its set to 60% at the moment. We chose a higher precentage after playing a few times an noticing that it was too dificult with some of our harder phrases to act out. We created phrases in the beginning that were tough to act out but narrowed it down to more "actable" phrases in order to keep user attention.
Thanks for checking out frasy!
Haha, we talked about the whole "solicitation" thing for awhile and how this could be kind of similar to chat roulette. Thanks for the review!

Thanks for the feedback. While some people aren't willing to show their face there are a ton of users that would(for example, all the chatroulette clones)
While you've already judged us, one thing I would ask is that you judge the completeness category accurately. I understand you have problems with our user interface but if the game/app is functioning please give the next team you judge a fair score for making their product work in such a short period of time. Thanks.
