Game's details

Get ready for some serious laughter at game night tonight, with Telestrations!

One of the best party games out there, Telestrations has the uncanny ability to bring people together around the table for side-splitting laughter and time spent reconnecting. In the Telestrations board game, 4-8 players age 12 years and older get to put their drawing…and guessing…skills to the test!

So what is Telestrations? Think of the “Telephone” game and apply the concept to sketches that get passed around the table! To start the game, each player gets a sketch book, a marker and a card that shows a unique list of words. One player rolls the dice to start the round, and everyone must look to see which word on their card corresponds with the number rolled. This is the word you will need to draw! You have one minute to give your best effort at making a drawing that will help the next person guess your word.

There are no numbers or letters allowed, and remember not to peek at your neighbours’ sketches! Once the minute is up, everyone passes their sketch pads to the person next to them. It’s then up to them to interpret the drawing, and make their own guess. Then, the sketch pads get passed again, and the next player draws the most recent guess. Pass the sketch pads again, and the game continues as such. Don’t forget that whilst your sketch pad is being passed around the table, you’re also doing your part to draw and make your guesses on the other sketch pads! Players can only look at the sketch or guess that was done just before their turn. Once the sketch pads have circled the table completely, the hilarity ensues!

How did you all do? Were you able to stick to the original words drawn, or did they morph into something entirely different on their tour around the room? The “big reveal” is the most exciting part of the game, and always ends in side-splitting laughter as everyone shows their original word and walks the sketch pad through the various iterations. There’s no way to avoid laughing out loud! You don’t have to be a skilled artist to play the Telestrations game…it’s all about having fun. There are no points to track and no winning or losing. The aim of this game is simply to have fun!
