DoodleRace is a Group Power, which allows you to compete with others by creating the best doodle. This article gives information on DoodleRace.
You don't need to have the power to play. You can find chats playing DoodleRace by going to the xat homepage and clicking "Games" under "xat groups." You can also go to the Game chat if you want more details and more games.
- To use the DoodleRace power, first get it from http://xat.com/getpowers, then click Games at the left, then click DoodleRace. Type (doodlerace) 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 drawing the word you selected. After drawing is finished, you will all be given the option to rate the user's doodles' 1-5 stars. The bot will send a message showing the top 3 people after rating is over, and the app will display your rank out of all users at the top.
The power is required to use any of the commands. You are required to be on the application to use the commands as well.
