Rules of Play


Pictures box cover art with pictures in color on the cover and a white faded background of images and the title is made with blocks and random items.

Pictures is a quick-playing family game with very simple rules. Form the image on your secret picture with one set of components, either shoelaces, colored cubes, icon cards, sticks and stones, or building blocks in such a way that the other players guess what image you have. 1) Draw a marker that determines your secret picture from the display 2) rebuild that image with your components in such a way that it is recognizable 3) guess what image each other player has pictured- and they must guess yours! The player gets points for correct guessings and for other players guessing their image. The most points wins!

The chart indicating Pictures requires 3-5 players, recommended player size for the best game time is 4-5, plays in 20-30 minutes, features Deduction and party game themes, and offers communication limits, deduction, and pattern recognition Mechanics
