AnswerGarden by Richard and Sander from Creative Heroes, an Amsterdam-based creation studio. They create games such as Gluddle and toys such as DiceForChange. They designed and developed AnswerGarden theirselves and use it for creative brainstorms, in their lectures to young designers and to decide upon the name of their next game .

There are already alternative services for that out there and that is not what AnswerGarden is designed for.

Simply write a topic in field on the Create New AnswerGarden-page and then press the “Create”-button. If you want, you can provide a password for your garden so you can edit it later.
