    Hey, I'm the developer / designer of Name That Blue. If you've got any questions, I'll try my best to answer them. Cheers!

      Fun game. Would have been nice to have an end though, so we could brag on DN like the nerd champions that we are.

        I'm considering different game modes that do have an 'end'. Your thoughts will definitely influence the direction I take it. I'm all ears!

          I agree, and end would be nice. I got kinda bored around 17/20 and gave up at 22/25. (See what I did their? helpful feedback & showing off my scores. I'm especially proud since I'm colorblind and blues and purples are often hard to distinguish.)

          I'd suggest capping it somewhere like 20-25 and clearly showing the user which they are on question "17 of 25" then, at the end, show the score and allow them to tweet about it. People love to shared their #nerdCred.

          I'd also like to make one more suggestion: I didn't mind that companies / colors repeated, but perhaps make sure they don't repeat in adjacent rounds. I had like 4 rounds in a row where the color and correct answer were persistent. It almost felt like cheating since I knew instantly that it was the same answer each time.

            Thanks so much for taking the time to give feedback. I'm convinced now that an 'end' is ideal, maybe even the default mode, with 'endless' as an option.

            I'm working more on how the choices are selected to stop duplication. Lots to do!
