Telestrations!

Do you remember the telephone game? Have you played Pictionary? Take the best of both games, add a twist to and you get Telestration... This is why it is called "The telephone game sketched out!"

We love Game nights, plus it's a great way to spend time with family and or friends.

When we receive Telestrations for review, I was so excited I mention it to a couple of friends and we had to schedule a game night as soon as possible, we all wanted to play.

Play, write, draw and have Fun!
Telestrations

By their own words "Draw what you see, then guess what you saw. All players simultaneously sketch, pass, guess & laugh to reveal hilarious and unpredictable outcomes!"

Is an easy to play family game that comes neatly package in a box containing:

  • Over 1,1700 words (Cards: This side / That side)
  • 8 Erasable Color Coiled Sketch Books/il>
  • 8 Dry-Erase Markers
  • 8 Clean-up Cloths
  • 1 60 second sand timer
  • 1 die
  • Instructions Manual
Telestrations out of the Box!

It's very simple to play and up to 8 players can play at a time, each player receives an erasable sketch book (they all have different color coiled for easy identification), a dry-erasa marker, a clean-up cloth and a word card.

Playing the Game!
Playing the Telestrations!

Telestrations turn out to be more than a game, it was fun and laughter in a box, the things that we came up are hard to describe, yet hilarious. Needless to say we stayed up almost all night as we could not get enough of it. One thing I love about this game is that is all about interaction and not so much focus in a board game.

This is how we played: after everyone got what they needed, we decided what side of the cards to play (blue or yellow), then one of the players threw the die to select the word from the cards (per person) that would be played, and then we started by writing this word on the sketch book and passing to the next player as the sand timer would run out. Ones we would get our own board back, that is really where the fun kicked off, as we all revealed what was the original word and the final result/guess.

So now you know how we played, but you have no idea as how much fun we had, another good thing about this game is that even though there is drawing involved you really don't have to be good at it, many times less is more (more fun) for all, because the final result is even more funny.

Pros: It's easy, fast to learn, not much to set up and much fun.
Cons: The only thing that we found is that the small clean-up cloths are to small and get misplaced easily, it would be nice if the pens had a small eraser attached, this would eliminate the mistplacement and the job could be better done.

The Game...
And the word was Eye Patch...

Our final thoughts: We really enjoyed playing this game, it's fun and very entertained. I recommend Telestrations for everybody that likes to have a great time playing with family and friends.
