FAQ stuff:

Q: How do I quit a game?
A: when looking at the list of games, swipe your finger right on the game you want to quit. An X will show up.

Q: How do I buy colors?
A: When in a drawing, to the right of the color palette is a + symbol. Click on that. It's about 300 coins for 6 colors.

Q: Isn't that alot for colors?
A: I guess. There isn't anything else to spend them on, really, except bombs. 10 bombs for 400 coins, 20 for 720, and 40 for something.

Q: What's the point of the game?
A: To have fun? I mean, it's a dumb little free/.99c game that you can play pictionary with your friends. You don't "win" you just keep going. I guess you could try to see how high your round score can get. Personally, my noncheating one is 56 currently.


original.
This started for me because my sister begged me to play this game with her. It's a turn-based guessing game where you get three choices (easy/medium/hard) which are worth coins. You can have an unlimited number of games going, and it keeps track of the stats of each game. blah blah blah.

This game got interesting to me, though, when I realized how stupid some people were. For example, one guy can't draw I guess, so turned it into a guessing game. 1st example?

"This is where Hitler was born"
Answer? Germany. Now, He was actually born in Austria, but whatev's no big deal. it's easy to make that mistake. Next picture.

"This guy cuts wood."
Answer? Butcher.


The best picture of last night was someone who drew a water bottle, a potato and the swastika.
Answer? Russia.

So now I'm taking pictures of the silly ones so that we can share our chuckle. The game is free(ad based) or .99 currently for the non-ad version. I highly suggest you pick it up and experience the wonders of this game.

    I am so happy there is a thread for this. I have saved some of my decent drawing and am going to throw them on a blog or tumblr or whatever. How people can't guess certain things is beyond me.

    I drew Ryu throwing a fireball and wrote HADUKEN on the top. The lady wrote "f-i-r-e..." in the beginning and then got rid of it and eventually gave up. COME ON!

    How does the multi work? Do you have to local it with other iWhatever users, or is it online multi?

    Not got my pad yet, so can't try it, but looks pretty damned funny.

    It's online. You can link your facebook, do anonymous, or make a username. I do username (Holyground). Each game just goes back and forth, you watch them guess your picture, then you guess theirs, then you draw the next picture.

    I've been playing this for a while, and while there are some interesting people you meet out there, by and large you really get some creative people. The game works because drawers and guessers get points for successful rounds. The problem is, a lot of random people just actually write out the word for you to guess so they get coins for it.

    I also wish that the range of letters were more than 12; it becomes pretty easy to work out the word once you start permutating the letters shown.

    OK. I can't wait to put up my blog. Here are some of mine. I have yet to get a peach color for skin, so Team Rocket is a little funky. All of these were guessed correctly except for Stork.

    Shoop Da Whoop Batman, duh! I dotted the eyes and was like, "Whelp, he is gonna shoot lasers now." Haha.

    edit: I should've made it look like the stork did something to the baby and have blood all over it. Hahaha.

    edit: My rule of thumb is that it is bad form to point an arrow at the answer or write out things that give it away horribly. Like, I had to draw RIBS. So, I drew a zombie and its stomach was blood and I used white to make ribs. Since it might be a little hard, I had blood going down its leg in the form of a secret arrow, pointing to the stomach/ribs.

    What I typically do is try to color in an outline of the figures and then make them more detailed. Once I do that, I outline in a color.

    Wow! I just got taken by the wave... cool App. Already thinking about making it better and here is my idea. There is a source code for draw my thing alternative that includes most features plus adds some new ones like video chat and voice communication. The only thing is missing is a re-design and a concept.

    ANY IDEA IS HIGHLY APPRECIATED! Thank you! :)

    So, a game that takes up a ton of battery life is going to have video AND voice chat? By the time you draw one thing, you need to recharge. I will stick to Draw Something since everyone I know has it already and got the paid version.
