MatchRace is a Group Power, which allows you to compete with others by reaching the number of meters specified before the other players. This article gives information on MatchRace.
You don't need to have the power to play. You can find chats playing MatchRace here: http://web.xat.com/games_chat.php or go to http://xat.com/MatchRace. If you need help others on the chat will help you.
- To use the MatchRace power, first get it from http://xat.com/getpowers, then click Games at the left, then click MatchRace. Type (matchrace) in your chat and assign the power, and then click edit your chat and select extra features and activate the power by checking the box.
- You can then use the !bot command to start the bot and then use the !start command so everyone begins playing. When the game is over, players are placed by how much height they gained by matching the smilies.
The power is required to use any of the commands. You are required to be on the application to use the commands as well.
- !bot lang The bot will start with the language you choose. Examples are: !bot en (english) !bot es (spanish) !bot pt (portuguese) !bot ro (romanian) !bot it (italian) !bot fr (french) !bot al (albanian)
- !help The bot will private message you with all the available commands.

- !prize Read the Prizes section below for more information on this command.
- !banloser This will allow you to start banning the loser (user with the lowest height) depending on how many people are in the chat. Type !banloser 20 to set it to ban users after 20 people are in the chat. To remove, type !banloser 0 You can view what it is set to by typing !banloser.
- !score If you type !score on it will display high scores from your chat only. Type !score off to turn it off.
- !exit/!bye This command will make the bot exit the chat.
You can add prizes to the bot by transferring xats.
- Type !prize 10 xats to use a 10 xats prize for the winner of the game. You can change it to !prize 50 xats, or !prize 1 day for days etc.
- All games started after this will offer the prize you selected, until the prize fund is empty.
- Note: The bot should store your prize for 24 hours, however, this is not guaranteed. Do not transfer large amounts of xats/days to the bot otherwise you could lose them.
