Ready? Set? Draw!

This is a great word-guessing game with pictures you draw as the clues for your team partners. You dont need to be an artist to draw in this game, where the originality of the players creates a lot of fun. You will need at least three people to play the board game version.

Things You'll Need


Timer Or Stopwatches .
Card Tables .
Chairs


How to Play:



1 Divide the players into teams.

2 Name a permanent 'picturist' if you have only three players. He will draw all the clues for the other two players.

3 Have each team select a picturist to do the drawing for the first word if you have four or more players. This duty rotates to all players in turn. The remaining team members try to guess the word being drawn.

4 Have each team place a playing piece in the start square on the board. Roll the die to see who gets the highest roll to go first.

5 Let the beginning teams picturist select the first card. She has only 5 seconds to study the word she will sketch.

6 Start the timer, and give the picturist 60 seconds to sketch clues for her teammates.

7 Allow the picturists teammates to try guessing the word for the full 60 seconds as long as the picturist draws no words, letters or numbers and uses no body gestures.

8 Have a successful team that has identified the word within the time limit roll the die. The team moves ahead on the board by the number of spaces indicated on the die.

9 Let the same team then select the next card and continue with a new picturist. Only when the time expires before a word is identified does play rotate to the left to another team.

10 Continue play until a team wins by landing on the finish square and identifying the word selected.
