‘Place‘ is a collaborative canvas — and Reddit’s newest April Fools’ day social experiment — that challenges millions of users to work together in order to create something beautiful. Or, draw a bunch of dicks and meme references.
The experiment is available on desktop, iOS and Android and it’s essentially a cooperative canvas, where each user gets a single pixel to paint with. You can use your pixel to start a new drawing, or add to someone else’s, but once you use it you’ll have to wait five minutes before you get another. It’s essentially a giant game of Pictionary, only trolls are in charge of the canvas, and all you can do is guess what they’re trying to create.
Do you want to be a cryptocurrency millionaire?
Don't get your hopes up.
Currently, there are over 40,000 people collaborating and the results are somewhat predictable. There’s a lot of nothing, followed by a few recognizable images: snoo, a health pack, a demon-looking object, and a couple of hearts. And in typical Reddit fashion, a few messages from trolls.
