Doodle or Die

Doodle or Die

Twenty minutes into Doodle or Die and you’ll be wondering how player #4 somehow inferred “Kirby robbing people” from your drawing of a girl eating marshmallows. Doodle or Die is a web-based doodle game that’s “like a game of Telephone, except with doodles.” You start off with a random phrase you’re asked to draw (like “pink balloon”). Then another player comes along and tries to guess what you drew. This continues until about ten players have contributed to the chain. Even if your chain originally starts off as “pink balloon,” it eventually morphs into something outlandish like “man with pink nose taking a bubble bath.” It’s strangely addicting. If you have an hour to kill today, check this game out.
