Instructions

How to start a game

  1. The person hosting clicks “Host a game”, follows the prompts and emails or texts the room code to the other players.
  2. Each player invited clicks “Join game,” enters the room code accurately and chooses a nickname.

Beginning play

  1. When all players are listed and ready to play, the Host clicks “Start game.”
  2. Only those players listed when the game starts can play. No one can join a game after it’s started.
  3. The Game Host picks themselves or another player to lead the round.
  4. Players with weak Internet connections must not be made Round Leaders as their connection can prematurely end the game on everyone.
  5. The Round Leader selects the image for the round from the selections given.

Writing captions

  1. The Round Leader selects the WiLD word from the selections given and the timer begins counting down.
  2. The WiLD word is not for points, but it's there as our own Captions ANTI-Writer's Block Gadget™
  3. Players write 1 or 2 captions for the Round Image in the 3½ minutes given, each caption submitted separately.
  4. Captions can be funny, serious, crazy, mysterious or as if written by another player—you name it!
  5. When the time is up, a page displays all the captions submitted within the allotted time.

Choosing the Round Caption

  1. The Round Leader reads all listed captions aloud before clicking on one caption, for everyone to guess who wrote it.

Guessing the writer

  1. Players take turns guessing who wrote the Round Caption in the order listed.
  2. When it’s the writer’s turn, they must guess someone other than themselves to keep their identity secret.
  3. When everyone has guessed, the Round Leader asks who wrote the caption, and the writer identifies themselves.
  4. The Game Host clicks “All done” to take players to see the full list of captions with author names revealed.

Authors Revealed

  1. Players discover who wrote the captions for the round.
  2. The Game Host clicks “Score points” to take players to the scoring page.

Scoring points

  1. The Game Host acts as scorekeeper, adding points to each player, as earned.
  2. The only players to earn points are the Round Caption’s writer and the players who correctly identified the writer.
  3. When finished scoring, the Game Host clicks the “Next Round” (and repeats round play) or “Game Done” button.
  4. The game is over when each player has taken their turn as Round Leader (7 players = 7 rounds).
  5. The player with the most points at the end of the game wins!

Scoring

The Round Caption’s writer earns:
+1 point for writing the caption
+2 extra points if no one guessed them as the caption’s writer

Each player who correctly guessed the writer earns:
+1 point


Helpful Hints

1. Try to think of captions other players wouldn't expect you to write, or try bluffing by writing captions that you think another player would write.

2. Most people play Captions simply for fun, but if you are a highly competitive type, try writing extra wild captions, as these tend to be the ones chosen by the Round Leader.


Contact us

We'd love to hear from you if you have comments or inquiries. We check for new emails once a week so please allow up to seven days for a response from us.


Submitting the contact form above will drop you out of the game if gameplay is underway.

If you have ideas about how to make the game better, contact us. We'd love to hear them. We have a 5 minute online survey that we can send you.


Troubleshooting

I have no audio connection with the other players.
Audio connection with the other players is not handled by Captions. You need to be in a videoconferencing or audio call (Zoom, Google Meet, etc.). Then start a game of Captions.

When I load the game, it tells me "try loading the game on a larger device." What should I do?
Captions the Game will run on tablets, laptops and desktops. If you are getting the "try on a larger device" message on a laptop, tablet or desktop, you simply need to make the game window larger. Try going fullscreen with the game. If your game window is not wide enough, you'll get the error message. If you're on a tablet, you'll need to make the tablet screen horizontal for it to be wide enough.

I can't see important game elements (ie. the caption writing field or important buttons). What do I do?
Zoom and other videoconferencing apps will sometimes put a popup over the game of Captions. To play the game you need to minimize these popups without closing them. Doing so will keep them running in the background without overlaying them over the game.

The game has started and one of the players is locked out.
If a player is not in the game and gameplay is in progress, the missing player will not be able to get in. If need be, you can start a new game with a new game code and wait till everyone needed has joined before beginning.
