What is Telestrations about?

Are you ready to laugh until your sides hurt? Then it’s time for a game of Telestrations! This party game combines the creativity and hilarity of Pictionary with the chaos and humor of the classic telephone game. It’s simple, it’s fun, and it’s guaranteed to bring out the artist and comedian in everyone.

How to Play

The rules of Telestrations are easy to learn, making it a great game for players of all ages. Each player starts with a small booklet and a marker. The first player rolls the die and selects a word from the corresponding category (such as “Food” or “Action”). Then, they have 60 seconds to draw a picture representing that word in their booklet. Once the timer runs out, they pass their booklet to the player on their left, who must then guess what the drawing is and write it down at the bottom of the next page.

The next player then has 60 seconds to look at the written description and turn it into a new drawing. This process continues until the booklet makes its way around the entire group. At the end, players reveal their original drawings and compare them to the final one to see how much it has changed.

Game Mechanics

Telestrations may sound simple, but it’s not just about drawing and guessing. The fun really begins when players see how their drawings have been interpreted by others in the group. As the booklet is passed around, drawings and descriptions can get lost in translation, leading to hilarious results. And with only 60 seconds per turn, players must think quickly and creatively to get their point across.

Another important aspect of Telestrations is that there are no winners or losers. The goal is simply to have a good time and share some laughs with your friends and family. This makes it a great game for mixed-age groups, as everyone can play on an equal playing field.

What Makes It Fun

Telestrations is a game that never gets old. With over 1700 words in the game, you’ll never run out of new drawings and descriptions to create. Plus, with each turn bringing unexpected twists and turns, the game is different every time you play. And the best part? It’s always more fun when played with a lively group of friends or family.
