one trick. Everyone bids. In the second round there are two tricks.

Warning: Choking Hazard. Small Parts. Not for children under 3 yrs.

Our Price: $25.50

From the manufacturer:

Telestrations is the hilarious new sketch, pass and guess party game for ages 12 and up that offers up instant as players simultaneously and continuously get to draw what they see and guess what they saw for a funny and unpredictable outcome every time. It's the telephone game sketched out. In this laugh out loud sketch, pass and guess game, everyone plays at the same time. Using erasable sketch books all players get a Telestrations word, then draw what they see, pass, guess what they saw, pass… and so on until everyone’s sketch book passes by every player and returns back to its original owner. Points are scored for each written guess that matches the original telestrations word. Extra points are scored if last word matches too. Just like the game of telephone, operator, grapevine, whispers or whatever you called it as a kid, the outcomes are unpredictable and the laughter is endless.
Loaded Questions
Price $26.95

This game became a best seller for us before we even had a chance to try it. We bought the first six copies from the author who was selling them out of his trunk. The first few customers who bought the game let us know we had found a winner.

Everyone writes an answer to the same "loaded question", such as "if you we invisible for one hour, where would you go first?" One player tries to guess who wrote each response. Sort of the Balderdash of friends and family. Though not really a team game, it is a game in which more is definitely merrier. When we played with 8 people from ages 10 to ... well, never mind... we had lots and lots of laughs.

Warning: Choking Hazard. Small Parts. Not for children under 3 yrs.
