great game once you get the hang but its become a bit messed up now, i dont know if their servers overloaded or something?
it says starting game then nothing comes up until it says partner has left the game then asks me if i want to play again...

It does not load here.....

I had also difficulties. On the page it says:
"Peekaboom requires the Java JRE version 1.4 or later"

So maybe this is the problem though I usually don't have problems with games that require java.

Hints: (for points)

skip those: (noone ever gets them)
nonsense images and words that just are not in the image.
very vague overgeneral images, absttract words like "logo" "image" "photo"; Images of a boat that are not "boat" because noone ever gets "cutter" caiak" or "ferry".
blurry images
barely related to's
too special verbs, special knowledge, uncommon vocabulary
windows screenshots or programs "windows" "program"

skip quickly
dont waste time with your image, the next ones can be simple text or an airplane.
You can skip and still paint, or skip and still guess. Let the other accept the skip, or just not jet.

bonus round strategy
On bonus rounds first klick SKIP, then klick the IMAGE!
That way you get points, your partner sees the skip, you get points during skipping or both of you just get bonus round points.
Because bonus rounds are for newbies and not as good as exponential growdth for the n'th guessed image. (except for small orange balls)
Bonus rounds with "car" are barely worth their points per second when other images points rise exponentially. Many "car" images are blurry crap anyways!
Bonus rounds on "red ball" are not always worth their time, skip the large ones, keep the small ones.

Common words:
Some images are repeating, to teach the AI or because of categories.
Its fun to guess "airplane" "leopard" and "man" within 2 seconds!

airplane (barely ever just called "plane" !)
man,face,men,woman,women,people,boy,girl,boys,girl s,hair,crowd
leopard (barely any "cats" or "lions" just think "leopard")
tree,trees,wood,sky,grass,water,hill,mountain,rive r
watch (noun)
round,circle,square,rectangle, line, (+ plural forms)
glass, metal

words dont come easy: (but much faster if...)
When your word is text on the image:
-Do NOT klick the "text" hint at first!
-left klick first letter.
-left klick last letter/end of word. (end of word is important)
-left klick show each letter from left to right, some letters have "unique" parts you can save time on. (type on see, for faster writing)
-right klick end or middle of the word. (done, sign)
-click skip if you want to.
-now you can klick the "text" hint.

*If the only error is plural from singular right klick 2 different points of the image.
*Paint the starting letter, especially if the word is a thesaurus.
