How To Play

How to Use Telestrations as an Ice Breaker

For party people - A party where not everyone knows each other

For employers - The beginning of a meeting at work to get people communicating and relaxed

For teachers - The first day of school to help students to get to know each other

How to Facilitate Group Bonding

Reassure everyone that the game is all about fun & no drawing skills are required

Have a round where everyone draws with their non-dominate hand (so righty to lefty and lefty to righty) to get things extra silly

Have everyone name their favorite moment and/or drawing at the end of each round

Take pictures of it all so you can look back on your memories later

"After just 1 play, Telestrations became mom’s favorite party game. Do we really need to say anything else?" - The Board Game Family

Today's review is of a game that truly took me by surprise - Telestrations... watching how different people interpret different clues is really fun - and hilarious... Overall, I give Telestrations an A+." - Board Game Reviews By Josh

"We laughed as hard as we've ever laughed in our lives. We have eight people in our family (two parents and six children ages eight to eighteen), and we found that all of us could play at once and enjoy it, which you don't find with many games. " - 5 Star Amazon Review

"This is a great game. I have never laughed so hard. We stopped keeping score because it didn't matter who won. We played with six players and we screamed with laughter the entire time. We played for hours every night during the Christmas holidays. One of my out-of-town guests said she would have to buy this game when she returned home." - 5 Star Amazon Review

"I have played this game more times than I remember, mainly because of blacking out from laughing so hard. Have yet to find a person that thinks in a "pretty good game". Everyone that I have played this with ranks it as one of their top 5 favorite games of all time. I highly recommend this game to anyone that loves to laugh... hard...for hours!!!!!" - 5 Star Amazon Review
