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!

Even our seven year old played the game and loved it!
K. Commaroto
You score points for the best drawing, the best guess, and if the correct word or phrase survives four rounds (eight players) worth of "telephone."

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.

What I LIKED:

- 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.

This is a great game. I have never laughed so hard. We stopped keeping score because it didn't matter who won. We played with six players and we screamed with laughter the entire time. We played for hours every night during the Christmas holidays. One of my out-of-town guests said she would have to buy this game when she returned home. The markers did wear out(I think because we played it so much) but it wasn't a problem for us because we bought new markers. I highly recommend this game!!!!!!!

A family-friend brought the Telestrations game over during the Thanksgiving weekend. We had a blast! It was simple to play and loads of laughs. I would highly recommend this game for the holiday gift giving season.

I have played this game more times than I remember, mainly because of blacking out from laughing so hard. Have yet to find a person that thinks in a "pretty good game". Everyone that I have played this with ranks it as one of their top 5 favorite games of all time. I highly recommend this game to anyone that loves to laugh... hard...for hours!!!!!

Brought this to a family dinner and it was great, the teens even sat through numerous rounds with us -- that's saying a lot since they usually abandon us the minute dinner is over to go out and hang with their friends. I am thinking about upgrading to the 12 player pack, so even more people can get in on the fun!!

It's a simple enough concept and clearly you could do it without the packaged game, but they make it so much easier with dry erase tablets and cards full of ideas. I think it was well worth the money for such a great package.

This game brings back memories of playing telephone at all night sleepovers, but now its fun for adults too. We are big-time game players, and this game is a real hoot. Our lack of drawing skills only made the game more hilarious. The notebooks are fun to draw and write in, and easy to erase. Really quality. We will be pulling this game out every time we have a group over!
