One player describes, all the others draw: using more or fewer words, the art director describes the artwork in his or her hand. The artists aren’t expected to create identical duplicates, that’s not what this game’s about. The time is quickly up then with great anticipation the hidden criteria are revealed: does the fish have eyebrows? Does the cosmonaut have an angel in their hand? Each artist’s neighbour awards points and the discussion of the required details is very much allowed. If at least one artist gets a point for one of the criteria then these are awarded to the art director too. In this communication game, stylised pieces are more prevalent than sophisticated sketches. Both young and old will be amused by the wide variety of art styles.
