Opportunity To Play Game With Inventor {Chicago}

If you live in the Chicago area I have a special opportunity for you! One lucky reader will have the chance to play a round of the game Telestrations with the the inventor himself and others at the Chicago Toy and Game Fair. The winner of the game will receive a supply of USAopoly board games just in time for holiday gifting. The game with the Telestrations inventor will take place on November 20th at 2 p.m. at the Telestrations booth.

What Is Telestrations?

ABOUT THE GAME: Telestrations is the laugh-out-loud sketch, pass and guess party game by USAopoly where players simultaneously draw what they see, then guess what they saw to reveal outcomes that are hilarious and unpredictable. In essence, it’s the telephone game sketched out!

WHAT’S DIFFERENT:
 Everyone plays at the same time, it’s multi-generational, interactive and engaging. It’s light-hearted and provides instant fun and laughter. Telestrations is simple to learn and play. It’s a great icebreaker and perfect for game night.

BASICS:
 In this fun and modern twist on the classic “telephone game,” everyone plays at the same time. Each player gets their own erasable sketch book, dry-erase marker and word card. A roll of the die determines each player’s secret starting word. The timer gets turned and everyone draws their word. After 60 seconds, everyone passes their book to the player on their left. Then each player takes a few seconds to guess what they see, write it down, and passes again. The timer is turned and everyone draws what they see. This play continues until everyone’s sketch book passes by every player and returns back to its original owner, at which point it’s time to see what happened to each secret word. Points can be scored if the last guess matches the secret word, and for favorite sketch and written guess in each book. Just like the game of “telephone”, the outcomes are unpredictable and the laughter is inevitable.

  1. I would love to play this game! I’m a terrible artist…in fact, I don’t think I’ve improved since grade school, but I have a feeling that that may be what makes this game so fun :) Looking forward to adding it to family game night!
