You don't have to be an artist. Once you draw your picture (in 45 seconds) the next step is to select a category card. This card tells you how the artwork will be judged. If the category card says "used the most graphite" then the person with the most pencil marks "wins" that point. Some of the category cards were quite fun and since you don't know what the category is before you draw, this evens the playing field for the non-artist types.
The contents are:
-210 subject cards
-105 category cards
-8 pads of paper
-8 voting wheels
-8 colored chips
The players take turns selecting cards which contain the subject everyone draws. Everyone gets 45 seconds to render his or her drawing. The category cards determine what aspect of the drawings everyone votes on. These are adjectives like dirtiest, happiest, most likely to hang on a refrigerator, had too much sugar for breakfast, most disturbing, angriest, used the most graphite, Freud would have a field day, should have used an eraser, most embarrassing. Combine these with subjects like "Men's Room," "Dog Parade," "Player to your Left," "Marilyn Monroe," and you'll get some wacky and explosively funny combinations. We had to explain some of the categories to the youngest child, but all subjects and categories could be explained in a child-appropriate way.
Players vote on their voting wheels for which drawings came closest to the category descriptions. Whether you win or lose is beside the point. This game is low in competitiveness, and brings everyone together in laughter. In fact, it's the game that our youngest child requests the most---he often wins the game with his amusing drawings, and does not have to compete with the rest of the family on strategy or luck. I would highly recommend it.

Fun for the whole family. You do not have to be good at drawing. Only bad thing is never enough paper…eventually you will need to supply your own.Published on December 28, 2013 by TNaz
