Someone just showed me this game and I got instantly addicted. I've been playing for like 3 hours.
You know how a game of telephone works? You whisper something to somebody, then they whisper what they heard to the next person in line, and so on and so on until the message gets really distorted. Doodle or Die works like that, except you describe a picture to somebody, and they have to re-create that picture using their own drawing skills. Or the other way around, someone describes a picture to you, then you have to draw it based on their description. The game alternates like that.
Here are some examples of the shenanigans that take place:
I drew the above pictures, and here's some shit based on a suggestion I made:
As you can imagine... er... See, since this game is on the internet, it quickly fills up with tits and cocks, sometimes decently drawn, but usually nigh incomprehensible. I think 4chan is really into the game right now because I'm seeing a lot of mention of /b/ and /v/ and so on. People are frequently requesting "shark tits" and "sanic" and other dumb meme shit.
Actually this is a really good way to sum up the Sanic meme shit:
Share your experiences here. But don't be one of those assholes who just writes "im not drawn that, fag" instead of drawing the picture, or describes someone's (theoretically) hard work as "sum shity drawling"
Greasemonkey script that gives you a larger color palette:
Update January 2012
There is now a new version of the site in beta testing. It has a better interface, allows you to like or report people, lets you follow more chains(?) and there's apparently a new greasemonkey script that gives you an EVEN BIGGER color palette.
The beta version:
The new Greasemonkey script:
Will be edited in here as soon as someone links me to it.
Update December 2012
The new version of the site seems to be out of beta, and probably has been for a while. So I think that beta link is dead, and doodleordie.com is now the one and only site. I think that the Greasemonkey script mentioned in my last update was not real, so disregard that. However, the script I was originally using for the site doesn't seem to work anymore, so I edited the URL above with a newer, similar script that does work.
