Pictionary

Ever tried playing the game? Try it, the whole family will enjoy. How is it played if you have not tried it yet? It is simple. Draw an image and let your team members guess your drawing. If they guessed the drawing, your team wins. You may agree with some condition on how to play the game among yourselves. Some condition could be that the other team could steal in case your team mates are unable to guess the drawing. 


Pictionary is a guessing word game by using a card. This was designed by Robert Angel and first published in 1985 by Seattle Games Inc. In the absence of the card you could agree to write on a piece of paper the object to be drawn. To make it more exciting for the players, you may agree on a particular topic. Topics could be movie titles, places, events, phrases etc.


The game is one of the activities we had during our classroom training. It helped us ease the tension of information overload. These were some drawings that made our team won. The first drawing is World War and the second drawing is International Community. You guys are chuckling, I know. We had fun that day.

This game is dangerous, it has caused endless fights in our household at Christmas time when we play it. Avoid at all costs lol!!

Jolly Princess said...

@Dai Ning Li - So, am I. I would rather guess not draw. Same thing in Charade. @Ryan - Is that so? Sorry to learn about your civil war. Hahaha!^_^

Jolly Princess said...

@cLai ♥ and @Cheqna- Right, like charade. - The clue in the game is international events. There were so many of us who participated in one team so we won. @Reut- Yes, indeed a fun game for the family. :)
