okay why did this game give pplains the wrong letters for "diamond"?

thuggish ruggish Brahms (DJP), Monday, 19 March 2012 20:19 (eight years ago) link

oh lol I guess it didn't, it just showed me the wrong letters for his guess

thuggish ruggish Brahms (DJP), Monday, 19 March 2012 20:20 (eight years ago) link

That one was weird? I got hung up on putting "ring" in there somehow, gave up for the night and went to sleep.

When I woke up this morning, it was all "time for you to draw a picture for dexness!" even though I never gave up on the ring thing.

pplains, Monday, 19 March 2012 20:22 (eight years ago) link

I mean, here we are now on turn 10. If I had surrendered, wouldn't our streak have to start over?

Draw Something, I have so many questions.

pplains, Monday, 19 March 2012 20:24 (eight years ago) link

The wrong letters thing happened to me once too.

polyphonic, Monday, 19 March 2012 20:28 (eight years ago) link

i like this game but it often doesn't refresh when i reopen the app, so i have to wait for it to time out or something so that it will check back in and see the new turns. pretty annoying.

congratulations (n/a), Monday, 19 March 2012 20:30 (eight years ago) link

same here. trying to open up more than four other apps and see if that pushes it out of the way.

pplains, Monday, 19 March 2012 20:32 (eight years ago) link

really want them to fix the badge bug

Nhex, Monday, 19 March 2012 20:34 (eight years ago) link

Feeling overwhelmed by this, I've got you lot, guys at work, friends, extended family, ex-colleagues, EVERYONE playing it. About 25 games in the go, not enough hours in the day to keep up with them all (am Jimdoo btw, heh).

JimD, Monday, 19 March 2012 20:39 (eight years ago) link

my user name is naamme if you want to play me

the lack of a chat feature is frustrating

If you're an iOS ~power user~ you can kill the app and restart it. Double-press the home button; tap & hold the DrawSthg icon; when it wiggles, touch the red minus thing in its corner (NOT the X – if you see an X in the corner you are doing it wrong). Then press the home button and open it normally.

…for iOS

nhex-ane (Autumn Almanac), Monday, 19 March 2012 21:53 (eight years ago) link

omg the first game i played my opponent, whom i did not know but the avatar pic was of a small kid, looked really like they were drawing a pair of balls and a big penis. It ended up being a dogs bone.

Summer Slam! (Ste), Monday, 19 March 2012 22:09 (eight years ago) link

i do that all the time for this ish

A Little Princess btw (s1ocki), Monday, 19 March 2012 22:24 (eight years ago) link

One of my opponents (who is not crude) drew a gun by starting with the barrel (with a knob on the end for some reason) and the trigger loop, and it looked EXACTLY like a cnb until she drew the handle

nhex-ane (Autumn Almanac), Monday, 19 March 2012 22:45 (eight years ago) link

Xxxp On the site I read about that iOS 'kill' thing the consensus was that it just removed the app from yr 'recently used' list, it didn't kill the task at all...

ledge, Monday, 19 March 2012 23:00 (eight years ago) link

... but trying it now I think they were totally wrong.

ledge, Monday, 19 March 2012 23:06 (eight years ago) link

yeah, it totally task kills

.. i am so sorry for killing a streak by missing VOICE, major shame

Nhex, Monday, 19 March 2012 23:25 (eight years ago) link

I liked my drawing but it wasn't easy, for sure.

polyphonic, Monday, 19 March 2012 23:29 (eight years ago) link

I keep on guessing the word, then thinking the right letters aren't there so it must be something else.

ledge, Monday, 19 March 2012 23:51 (eight years ago) link

App updated for iOS inc. crash fixes, performance improvements and hipsterpad retina

Ugh good for the devs, inevitably bad for the game not having Zynga cross-promo everywhere.

Alderaan Duran (Will M.), Tuesday, 20 March 2012 01:34 (eight years ago) link

Between getting the same twelve words all the time and way too many random opponents who just write the word they're supposed to draw, I lost my interest really quickly.

Soggy Cheeseburgers (Deric W. Haircare), Tuesday, 20 March 2012 02:34 (eight years ago) link

forks <-> nhex
this game is starting to get kinda exhausting though, i'm gonna admit. i want more more more but now that i have over 10 games on tap (almost all from this board, you guys rule!) it's getting tougher to carve out some time, since each word/set of turns takes a couple of minutes

still, i am a savage AND DEMAND MORE WORDS

Nhex, Tuesday, 20 March 2012 03:02 (eight years ago) link

oh god pleasant, you'a'killing me!!! (for your own mercy, just skip my frantic shuffling attempt to figure out that word, i didn't get it)

Nhex, Tuesday, 20 March 2012 03:17 (eight years ago) link

There was just an update with more words

Jeff, Tuesday, 20 March 2012 03:19 (eight years ago) link

It's okay, nhex. I don't think you ever had a chance.

Nhex, Friday, 6 April 2012 15:15 (eight years ago) link

i just managed to finally afford extra colours, so rekindled interest a little bit but definitely waning now. I'm just seeing either the same words over and over again, or ones which I have no desire to try and draw because they are mundane celebrities or I don't know what they mean.

It would be nice to have this on a pc, bigger screen and i could use my drawing tablet. one of my friends is a cheating ipad owner, so jealous watching her draw really quickly.

oh god i never bought it. just played the free version.

PSOD (Ste), Thursday, 12 April 2012 12:42 (eight years ago) link

yeah, why would you buy it before trying the free version?

Nhex, Thursday, 12 April 2012 17:00 (eight years ago) link

didn't you read the end of the thread where everyone got sick of this??

iatee, Thursday, 12 April 2012 17:01 (eight years ago) link

i never read the end of threads. tbh i didn't see there was a free version until now so the joke's on me i guess.

sonderangerbot, Thursday, 12 April 2012 17:29 (eight years ago) link

It's only a dollar, guys.

It seems pretty obvious to me whether you'd like it or not. It's pictionary on the phone.

I paid for my copy for this reason.

it's ok, even i've largely burnt out. i'll play every couple days now if that

Regarding original post - why are people drawing the plant when you can draw a cat and point to it's tail :D Lamprey gets a lamp + a sun ray with an arrow point to the ray. I'm super terrible drawing and do use some words like for Crystal I drew a stick figure with straight black hair and blue eyes, drew her mouth open, some music notes and wrote "don't turn my brown eyes blue" you know.. Crystal Gayle :P

if you want to exchange terrible drawings I'm jijifer.

This game originated on OMGPop.com , which was bought by Zynga and put in iphone form. drawings are equally shitty via mouse, regardless.
