Can you draw a ninja? Well, can you kind of draw a ninja?
In Pictomania, a rough sketch can be good enough.
Pictomania is the drawing game with no teams and no waiting. Everyone gets to draw, and everyone gets to guess, all at the same time! No one has time to draw a complex masterpiece. The player who can sketch the essence of a word with a few lines will have more time to figure out the another players' drawings. And more time to laugh at them.
Seven years ago, the first edition was released. In gaming, thatís a long time, so let's remind you a bit how the game is played, shall we?
The game itself consists of two simultaneous actions: drawing the one word or phrase and guessing what other players are drawing.
Is she drawing an elk or a moose? Is he drawing a pegasus or a unicorn?
These are the types of questions you will probably be asking yourself during a game of Pictomania!
When you believe you have identified what word or phrase, from the displayed word cards, another player is drawing then you place your guessing card corresponding to the number of the word face down in front of the player.
Players get points for guessing others' words correctly and swiftly. They also get points for finishing their drawing and all their guesses quickly. The points earned in each round are added up. At the end of round 4, whoever has the most points wins.
Be aware, that there's no time to draw a complex masterpiece. Players sketch the essence of the word with a few quick lines and try to guess the others' drawings while there's still time.
