Reviews & Comments:
BGG Svein Main:"A very good team-building game. You work as a team trying to solve some drawings that the drawer don't know. Very intense, and very funny."
BGG Grzegorz Kobiela:"I love drawing games and this one follows a very cool idea - a member of your group tells you what shapes to draw and the other members (including yourself) have to guess what it is."
BGG Dallas Petersen:"Good party game. Can be pretty hard for 8 and under, so the Junior is probably better if you're getting this for a family."
How To Play
Two teams race to identify drawings done by their own team members. But the artists don’t know what they are drawing—they can only follow the instructions given by another team member. Laughter erupts as players attempt to follow direction and to guess what is being drawn.
This game reinforces:
BGG Trent Howell:"Great party game. Get spouses or significant others on the same time and you'll get a party started in no time. Actually we also like pitting the men vs. the women."
BGG Jim Marshall:"Fun drawing game. Similar to Pictionary (which I enjoy), but without the dull boardgame bit (which makes Pictionary drag on well past the point at which it stops being fun). It has an extra twist, in that the person doing the drawing hasn't seen the word he's trying to draw, he's following simple instrucrions from a team mate who has."
BGG Cass Soren:"I can't even begin to draw stick figures and yet I found this fun. Players work in teams with one person describing the shapes to be drawn and another drawing those shapes. Anyone on the team except the describer tries to guess what the shapes depict. "
