Code for a Drawing Game

The other day my wife and kids played a drawing game called Who What Where Jr with some friends. Based on their description of the game mechanics, I wrote a little bit of Javascript that chooses a "who", a "what", and a "where" from columns in a Google Spreadsheet.

I guess it's not quite the same as the actual game, and it took us a while to come up with subjects, verbs, and locations, but we had some fun creating it and playing it. The next step would be to turn this into a web app, including some sort of mechanism for showing each player a different phrase before a timer starts.

Code is available on GitHub.
