Sign Up or Log In
You must have a user account in order to play Chrologony, or you can try it out as a guest. You can sign up using your email address or through your Facebook, Twitter, Apple, or Google account here. If you already have an account, log in.
If you just want to try it out, scroll to the bottom of the login screen and enter a guest name. Just remember, guest players won’t retain their history or be able to manage categories and clues. So sign up if you like what you see!
Join a Room
Once authenticated, you will arrive at the lobby. The lobby lists all the public games you are eligible to join. Games with a red lock in front of their name are password-protected, and you will need to enter the correct password before joining them. Click on a game to join it.
Create a Game
Click on the green “Create a New Game” button to create your own game. You must select a category by searching for one by name, but all other game options are not mandatory. The game name will default to the category name if you don’t specify a name. Add a password to password-protect the game. Mark it as private if you don’t want it to show up in the games list in the lobby. The only way join a private game is by going directly to the game link sent to you by someone who has already joined it. There are over a dozen advanced game options you can explore, but don’t get bogged down those to start with.
While you can play a game by yourself, Chrologony is best shared with others. After all, what fun is winning a game if you can’t gloat about it to someone? Once in a game, you’ll see an “Invite Players” button near the top right of the screen. Click on that button to reveal 3 options for inviting other players to your room:
- Password: If the game has a password, send it to others to enter when they join it.
- Copy Room Link: Players can join your game via direct link. Click on this option to automatically copy the unique game URL, then you can paste it into an email or the messaging app of your choice. People that go to that URL will join your game automatically after signing up or logging in.
- Send Invitation: Chrologony can send an email to the recipients you enter on your behalf automatically. The email will contain the game link. We will not keep the email addresses you enter; they are used only for purposes of sending the invitation email.
Players will appear on the Players in this Game panel once they join the game, in the order in which they joined.
Start the Game
Once all the players you want to play the game with are ready, start the game by clicking on the green “Start” button toward the upper right of the screen.
Next, we’ll learn how to play the game.
