Metadata Games are accessible through your web browser, and soon through your iOS or Android mobile devices!
Play as long as you want! Games can be as quick as 30 seconds, or you can tag for hours, it’s up to you. Start right now!
The Metadata Games platform has games that cater to all different types of players! Take a look:
A zen-like one player tagging activity — be as specific and accurate as you can to earn high scores. Ohm!
In the “next evolution” of Zen Tag, you can tag audio and video clips, too. Plug in your headphones and get ready!
Work together with a stranger to identify images in this fast-paced guessing game. Give great hints and you’ll both score big!
Challenge a friend and see if you’re smarter than they are! The best descriptions win, but be careful not to be One Upped in this competitive game for Apple and Android devices!
A competitive one player game — We asked random people to describe the image you are about to see in a single word each. How many of these words can you match in 2 minutes?!
Stupid Robot looks at everything but understands nothing. Can you help? Teach it as much as you can about the image. As it learns, it’ll want to know longer and longer words!
In our first collaborative game with the British Library, tag naval images from the library’s immense collections!
