Looks like it's starting in 15 min. There's a bit of confusion between GMT and BST :-)

It looks like it has a very bad "badwords" check:

Traveler is forbidden and it tells me "ist nicht zulässig, und den grund kennen Sie ziemlich genau, nicht?" which is german for "is not allowed and you know the reason pretty well, don't you?"

I just tried a little bit with other Words:
travele, travel, trave and trav are forbidden while tra seems to be allowed so therefore every word with trav is not accepted. Same for words containing sex, gay and homo while hetero, straight and biboy are allowed.

Also the game scales very bad, I can't believe that google is involved with more than maps in this project.
