@andri So I've been trying it a little.
And based on my first game.
I feel like a little more elaboration in the instructions would help.
Also, I have a feature request.
The ability to choose a category of topics. For example, creating a game centered around programming trivia.
Something I have found quite consistently is that nobody knew anything about the topics to choose from, which lead to quite an... odd game.
@andri That being said, after I figured some of the stuff out, I feel this would be very fun! Especially in an actual party setting.
I was thinking of making the category filtering a paid feature. You would pay like $2/month, but you can start games with any categories and amount of topics. Does this sound fair? You can still self-host and add any topics you wish.
Right now there are 2000+ topics and 50000+ keywords, all scraped from sources of various reliability, so for data validation I was counting on crowdsourcing and made a feedback option after every round.
@andri @Phate6660 i think you have a choice: either create a high quality dataset yourself and charge a fee (I’m not sure I’d pay a subscription tbh. I’d spend $5 to purchase “edition 1” outright though?), or crowdsource and release for free. If I’m paying for a game it’s not in the form of a subscription and my expectations in data quality are going to be more than “crowd-sourced”
