Rules of Play


Telestrations box cover art with a stick figure drawing holding a paper and pencil and a pen drawing the figure with sketchpads near by.

Each player begins by sketching a TELESTRATIONS word dictated by the roll of a die. The old fashioned sand timer may limit the amount of time they get to execute their sketch, but it certainly doesn't limit creativity! Time's up! All players, all at the same time, pass their sketch to the next player, who must guess what's been drawn. Players then simultaneously pass their guess -- which hopefully matches the original word (or does it??) -- to the next player who must try to draw the word they see -- and so on.

The chart indicating Telestrations requires 4-8 players, recommended player size for the best game time is 8, plays in 30 minutes, features Humor, party game, and real time themes, and offers Paper and pencil Mechanics
