What It Is
Telestrations, the visual version of the classic Telephone game, is now available in a party pack. The Telestrations 12 Player Party Pack comes with enough tools for 12 players plus an additional 600 new words to draw.
Each player takes a sketchbook, a marker, and a card. One player rolls the die to start the round. Everyone matches the number rolled to that numbered word on their cards, and secretly writes it in their sketchbooks. Then everyone has 60 seconds to draw that word. Then everyone passes their sketchbooks to the player on their left. That player looks at the picture, and on the following page of the sketchbook, writes what they think the picture is. Pass the sketchbooks again, and the third player has 60 seconds to draw what the second player wrote. Everyone continues to sketch, pass, and guess until players get their own book back. Then it's time for the big reveal. Take turns flipping through and sharing the sketching and guessing outcomes.
There are two ways to score. If you want to do Friendly Scoring, give 1 point to the player with your favorite sketch in your book, give 1 point to the player with your favorite guess in your book, and give yourself 1 point if the last guess matches the secret word. If you want to do Competitive Scoring, guessers earn 1 point if their guess matches the secret word or previous guess, sketchers earn 1 point if their sketch helps a guesser make a match, and you get 1 point if the last guess matches your secret word. The player with the most points after three rounds wins.
Telestrations 12 Player Party Pack comes with more than 2,000 words, 12 dry-erase markers, 12 clean-up cloths, 12 reusable sketchbooks, a 60-second sand timer, instructions, and a die. The game is for four to 12 players.
Why It’s Fun
Telestrations 12 Player Party Pack is easy to learn and a lot of fun for kids and adults to play together. The game is definitely more fun the more players you have, and this expanded version allows large parties to play together. You don't have to be a fantastic artist in order to play the game. In fact, part of the fun is seeing what silly sketches and guesses people come up with.
Who It’s For

What To Be Aware Of
Make sure all sketchbook pages are completely erased and clean before storing them back inside the game box, otherwise pages may stick together and ink may stain the pages. Recap the markers after use. If a marker dries out, use any dry-erase marker to replace it.
Dry-erase markers may stain fabrics and some surfaces. Protect your play area before use, and avoid contact with carpet, clothing, walls, and furniture. Keep away from eyes and skin.
