Inspiration ✨✨

This project was made at Impractical Hackathon, a name eerily similar to "Impractical Jokers", a show which I absolutely love. In this project, I have tried to implement a little challenge that's played in the TV show, in the form of a discord bot

What it does 🤔

What happens on the show

The jokers challenge each other to make a random stranger say a word that is chosen by the other jokers. An example of such a challenge can be seen here

What the bot does

  • Any user on the server can start a new game by typing &start. 🏇
  • The bot will DM a random user in the server with a random word. ⁉
  • The goal of that user is to make other people guess which word they have been given, without actually explicitly mentioing the word itself.😮
  • From the moment &start was typed, the user has to make others guess before 20 messages are exchanged on the server. 🤐
  • If the person themselves use the word, they will be caught by the bot. 👊👊

How we built it

  • This project has been over 6 years in the making! That's how long I've been watching the show! 📺
  • The bot is built using Discord.js 🤖
  • Deployed on GCP ⛈

Challenges we ran into

  • I'm not the most confident with Node.js, and it was my first time working with Discord.js. 🙅‍♂️
  • Working with server intents on Discord. 😫
  • Fetching the complete list of users on a server is unusually tough, and there exists no full fledged stack overflow answer. Will write one. 😎

Accomplishments that we're proud of

  • A small tribute to my favourite TV show. 🙇‍♂️
  • Learning how to make discord bots over a span of hours! 🥇

What's next for Word'ye

  • More challenges 💪
  • Leaderboards 💯
  • A grand punishment for the loser 😭😭
