The "Telephone Game" Turned Into The #1 LOL Family & Party Game!

Draw what you see then guess what you saw for hilarious and unpredictable outcomes. It’s miscommunication at its best!

The "Telephone Game" Turned Into The #1 LOL Party Game!
Share The Fun, Spread The Laughter!
The "Telephone Game" Turned Into The #1 LOL Party Game!
Telestrations LOL With Family & Friends!
Object of the game? To laugh - A lot!

Telestrations is perfect for family parties, fun with friends or entertaining a crowd.

No drawing skills required!

Telestrations is the visual version of the classic “telephone game” where you draw what you see, then guess what you saw to reveal hilarious outcomes!

Here's How To Play & LOL

Each player starts with their own erasable sketch book, marker and word card. A roll of the die determines each player’s secret word. The timer gets turned and everyone draws their word. After 60 seconds, everyone passes their book to the player on their left. Then each player takes a few seconds to guess in words(s) what they see, and passes again. The timer is turned and everyone draws the guess.This continues until everyone’s sketch book passes by every player and returns back to its original owner, where it’s time for The Big Reveal. Everyone shares their book and the hilarious miscommunication is revealed. Just like the game of “telephone,” the outcomes are unpredictable and the laughter is contagious!

This game combines the best of Pictionery and the old game of Telephone. You pick a card that has various items listed on the card, i.e. dog, vacuum cleaner, ski slope etc. Each item is numbered, and everyone is given the item number they will have to draw on the first page of Telestration. The Telestration booklet is made up of 8 pages of a material that is easily erasable using the provided marker and cloth eraser. After doing your drawing you pass the booklet to the person to your right. On the page following your drawing, they have to write down what you have drawn; then they pass the book to the right and that person has to draw what you have written down. When the booklets have made the rounds of everyone in the game it's time to reveal the sequence of words and drawings.

Laughter, guffaws, surprise, and enjoyment result from the reveal. We've had adults and children as young as 10 years old play in a round, and young and old enjoyed it equally. It's a family game that can be enjoyed by adults. There's a scoring system if you want to keep score, but we've enjoyed it with just sharing the results and disregarding the scoring process.

This would be ideal for a game to be played while recovering from the Thanksgiving Turkey, and it would be an excellent gift at Christmas time.

QUICK SUMMARY: This game is a lot of good, clean fun and really delivers a lot of laughs. But it'll only be really fun for 6, 7 or 8 people.

We played this game last night during our New Year's Eve party. We had a houseful of people, and couldn't break this game out until late in the evening, shortly before midnight, when the crowd thinned to just those families who were going to ring in the new year with us. That's an important point, because this game only works well with 6, 7 or 8 people, I think. You can play with fewer, but the results won't be as fun because the chances for the gameplay to go awry are fewer (going awry = funny outcomes). You can't play with more than 8, as that's the maximum number that the game is equipped to play.


- It leads to unpredictable, sometimes very hilarious outcomes, as people try to guess one another's sketches.

- It kept everyone's interest level up who were playing. In fact, we had too many people who wanted to play, so we swapped people in-and-out so more than 8 could experience game play.

- Once everyone got the hang of it, game play is pretty easy to do. It does take a strong game facilitator to LITERALLY make sure that "everyone is one the same page," especially at the very beginning.

- Game length for an 8-person game was about right, that is, about 90 minutes. Long enough to really enjoy the game, not too long that it gets boring.

What I DON'T like:

- The game will only be really fun for 6, 7 or 8 dedicated players. Too few, and the outcomes aren't as funny. The game limit is 8, and you really wouldn't want to play with more than that, because it takes a while for each person to share his or her own sketchbook story at the end of a full round.

We've been playing our own version of this game for some time now, calling it "Telephone Pictionary". The game itself is a fun family or party game but you don't have to purchase this USAopoly version. The key sentence in the above game description is, "Gameplay requires little more than the included erasable markers and sketch books." Truly, all you need to have a blast playing this game are index cards and pencils, which you can get separately. The game is addictive, so having extra drawing pads or index cards on hand will be helpful even if you choose to buy the boxed game. I am including rather detailed instructions for play so that anyone who wants to will be able to play without having to pay $20 just for instructions. If you just want a summary review - skip to the end!

First, how to play our version of the game and then how this boxed version differs from our do-it-yourself one. We play it like this - all players get a stack of index cards, 1 per player. Every player plays simultaneously. With each pass, you are either drawing an illustration or writing your interpretation of a drawing. To start, all players get a stack of index cards equal to the number of total players. The game begins with each player writing their own made-up sentence which has a noun, a place and a verb. For example, 'Santa Claus rides a bike in the park'. Everyone passes their stack to the next player. When you receive the passed stack from your neighbor, you read his sentence then, in 2 minutes, illustrate it on the next index card.

The stack is passed again, with only the picture just drawn showing. This time, the next player writes the sentence that he thinks is depicted.
