This puzzle is part of the Monthly Topic Challenge #7: Board games.
I was visiting the club yesterday, and I saw some people playing a weird word game araound a table. They use Scrabble-like tiles with colored shapes on them.
And they have weird names.
And they each say a qwote that sounds unusual.
"Yellow up, b down..."
I managed to secretly record the beginning of a game to see if there is a pattern.
Jack: Magenta strange, yellow strange, cyan strange, blue strange, green strange (in order from left to right). And my phrase is...
Jack: Holy Christian Painting For Important Meeting.
Mike: Cyan down, cyan top... and cyan bottom (in order from top to bottom). And it's...
Mike: Pressure put a piece of work with people speaking.
Sophia: Green down, blue down... yellow down (in order from left to right). Here's my sentence.
Sophia: Tactile thread for Tying things Reply about me.
Tom: Well, I'm new at it, and I'm going to put these two at the bottom. Yellow bottom and yellow down (in order from top to bottom).
Mike: And what's your sentence?
Tom: I'm not sure... Finally put club arrested...
Mike: *interrupts* That's not a trochaic hexameter. Try again.
Tom: Times begin because you...
Mike: *interrupts again* No. You have to drink a cup.
Mike poured some wine into his cup and drank.
Jack: Then I'll put Blue Charm and Blue Up (in order from top to bottom) here.
Jack: Back in louder song produced by pair of singers.
Mike: Red charm, magenta charm.
Mike: Perish Cube with Twenty-One Imprinted Circles.
Sophia: Here's a Red Strange and...
(I can't remember what other tiles she put down)
Sophia: Gets to First Position Making Second Patties.
I can't remember further as I left too early.
So, what game are they playing?
Qwestion: Figure out what game they're playing, and find the pattern.
Maybe you can try playing this game with your friends.
Notes on the scoring system:

Jack had 8 points.
Mike had 7 points.
Tom had 5 points.
Sophia had 16 points, including a 6-point bonus.
They're not just trochaic hexameters. They're also... (read tags)
The players are also playing on a crossword grid in their mind. The crossword grid is in the shape of the visible grid on the table.
In some sense, Tom never really got interrupted.
