So tonight cyrin and rileylynx and I were bored. I said earlier in the week I'd buy Pictionary for us to play - but, lazily, I didn't. So we made a furry-specific version of Pictionary up. Except it's not exactly like Pictionary (no board game, drawing player chooses what to draw) - you draw things for people to guess. We played it and it was fun. So here is how we played.
To play you will need:
To begin the turn, roll a six-sided dice. The number you roll determines what topic will be drawn:
The non-drawing players have a minute to guess what the drawing player is drawing. The first player who guesses what is being drawn scores a point. Usual rules apply: no letters or numbers can be drawn, no verbal communication with other players (ideally). The pen moves clockwise around the table from player to player. First person to score 10 points wins the game.
What we found when we played is that artists don't really have an advantage over non-artists, unless non-artists decide to draw otters as "river sausages". :| We also found that it was possible to strategically throw points at particular players by drawing something only they would know, meaning as the drawer you can kind of decide who to give the point to if you're that way inclined.
So play this with friends. Be merry and sociable.
