Along the lines of the drawing party game Pictionary comes Telestrations. Most party drawing games work on basically the same premise. A word or phrase is chosen randomly, then a player must attempt to draw a fair enough representation of that word or phrase so that team members can guess it correctly. But Telestrations has a wonderful new twist on traditional drawing games you are going to love, and definitely deserves a closer look.
What Makes Telestrations 12 Player Party Pack a Good Purchase?
We mentioned above that this drawing party game is similar to but different than most others. What makes it so fun and fast-paced is the fact that everyone draws a picture (hopefully representing their chosen word) at the same time. But everyone has a different word to draw!
Then all pictures are passed simultaneously, with players shouting out their guesses. The multiplayer format for up to 12, accompanied by more than 2,000 words and phrases for guessing, makes for laugh out loud fun and plenty of memorable games.
The “play at the same time” feature is not the only innovative aspect of Telestrations. Most other drawing games include pencils and paper. This means that you eventually need more paper, and more pencils or pens.
But Telestrations comes complete with 12 dry erase markers and 12 sketchbooks, as well as a dozen cleanup cloths for wiping your sketchbook clean and starting over. This is a really smart feature, and one of those “why didn’t I think of that” ideas that has made Telestrations such an award-winning, bestselling game.
It was chosen as a Traditional Games Top 100 game in 2011, and has also been chosen as a BoardGameGeek.com Golden Geek award winner. Telestrations has been honored with The National Parenting Publications Awards NAPPA Gold designation as a top rated family game as well.
Certified Amazon Mom members have also given Telestrations 4.9 out of a possible 5.0 star rating for customer satisfaction and family playability.
Anyone that enjoys funny, raucous and fast-paced games will love the laugh out loud fun that Telestrations provides. Very attractively priced with the ability to keep up to 12 game players scribbling feverishly and yelling out absurd guesses, this innovative drawing party game deserves a spot at your next get-together.
