You need: This PICTASCRIPT
pack. Pencils. Paper. You may need a timer (a mobile phone or watch). Time for each turn is 60 seconds. The winning team is the first to win a total of 10 turns.
Teams: Create 2 teams. Decide which team will start. Each team member takes turns drawing. The Drawer mustn’t talk or draw letters/numbers.
“Word Cards”: There are 50 Word Cards. Each Word Card has 4 difficulty levels.
“Level Cards”: There are 4 Level Cards, one for each difficulty level (Easy, Medium, Hard, Extra Hard). Level Cards are used to randomly select a difficulty level for each turn.
Starting the Game: Remove the 4 Level Cards, and shuffle the Word Cards. Place the Word Cards face down in a pile.
Decide which difficulty level(s) you wish to play at (e.g. Medium & Hard). Take these Level Cards and place them face down in a separate pile. Put to one side any other Level Cards you don’t wish to play at (e.g. Easy & Extra Hard). You won’t need the Level Cards if you choose to play at just one difficulty level (e.g. Easy).
To randomly select a difficulty for each new turn, shuffle and pick from the selected Level Cards at the start of each turn.
If you do not have a stop watch or timer, or wish to have a more fast paced game, you can have all teams draw at the same time on every turn.
Playing the Game: The first Drawer of the starting team picks a card from the top of the shuffled deck of Word Cards. On that team, only the Drawer must look at the Word Card. If all teams are drawing at once, the Drawers of the other teams should look at the Word Card also.
When ready, the timer should start, and the Drawer should start drawing a representation of the word/phrase on the Word Card.
If the team correctly guess the picture within the time limit (or, if all teams are drawing, the first team to guess the picture), that team wins that turn. That team keeps the Word Card to track wins. The winning team of the last turn gets to go again. If that team wins 3 turns in a row, the next turn(s) will be played by all teams at once until a different team wins a round.
If the team does not guess correctly within the time limit, it is the next team’s turn. Replace the Word Card to the bottom of the Word Card pile. Keep playing until a team has won 10 turns.
*If four or more players are available, you can split into two teams, with each person in each team taking turns to draw. When only 3 players are available, create 2 “teams” of 1. These will guess only. The other person will be the drawer for the entire game. The ones guessing should guess every drawing.
*If only 2 players are available, you can take turns drawing and guessing.
A fun way to play with just two people is "Beat the Clock":
Set yourself a timer for 5 or 10 minutes.
Take turns drawing and guessing, and see how many words you can draw & guess within the time frame. Challenge yourselves to beat your record next time!
To Play Over Zoom
Play over Zoom with groups of friends using just one pack of PICTASCRIPT, and your phone/tablet/laptop camera.
To play over Zoom, play as described above.
It works best if people in the same household are on the same team.
Simply designate someone (in the household which has the PICTASCRIPT cards) to pick up the cards and show them to the camera at the start of a new turn. Only the drawer should look at the screen, and anyone else simply needs to look away.
You can aim you camera so other teams can see the drawings, or if players from different households are on the same team.
The box includes 55 cellophane wrapped cards, in an outer box. Pencil is not included.
Not suitable for children under 3 due to choke hazard (inc plastic outer wrapping)
