Description Long

Pictionary is a quiz in which one team has to guess what the other has drawn. The group that guesses the drawing correctly gets a point. Each person can designate a speaker to reduce confusion. Only this person is permitted to shout the idea out loud.


Depending on the number of groups, an uneven number of rounds is played, in order to determine a winner at the end.


You can play the game by yourself at www.skribbl.io.


A blackboard/whiteboard and several different coloured chalks/markers are required. Beforehand, a referee must define the number of groups and a corresponding number of the terms to be drawn, which must be written on individual cards.


Equal-sized groups are formed. Each group selects a speaker, who is permitted to shout out the terms, while another person in each group is responsible for drawing the randomly drawn terms. The groups take turns to play.


The winner is the group with the most correct guesses.
