It was such a busy fall with Budding Artists that I really did not have time to breathe let alone post. I'll do my best to post more regularly now that I have a new computer and some new ideas.
Telestrations. It is a cross between Pictionary and the children's game Telephone. At first I was a little skeptical. How could this be fun? However, it was a hit. There was a lot of laughing. The game consists of game eight erasable sketchbooks, a 90 second sand timer, a die and 2, 400 words to use. We played it with a group of nine and doubled up with one sketch book. The die determines which word a player draws. Player draws then passes his sketchbook on. This person must guess what he thinks it is then passes it on to the next player who must draw what is written. The results can be so hilarious. I highly recommend it for your next party. Its best when played with a bigger group. We didn't use the timer.
This game can also be played using materials at home. I did a quick search and found a variation of this game and other drawing games on eHow. Try it and have fun.
