    This is a great game for Family Game Night (ages 12+) or just hanging with some friends! Our family had a blast playing this game! I highly recommend it!

    We played this game for the first time at a family fun night with another family. We had 9 people so, the youngest child paired up with me. It was loads of fun. You can make it as competitive or noncompetitive as you'd like. The one thing that we did do at the end of each round is have each person show the evolution of the picture. Great for parties! It's like playing telephone without words but using pictures.

    My family really enjoyed this game. We got it for Christmas and took it to a post-holiday gathering. Our game included ages 7, 9, 12, 14, college-age, adults and even a senior citizen. Every one of us had fun. No one wins and no one cares because the fun is in laughing at people's crazy drawings and crazy guesses. It didn't take long to get the rules figured out and we were off and running. My 69-year old mom has asked to borrow it to play with her friends and my sister has now asked where we got it so the college kids can enjoy it with their friends. Have fun!

    BEST. GAME. EVER. Seriously - such a fun party game! Takes little to no prep (everything you need comes in the box), and it is guaranteed to get a TON of laughs. Especially if the players aren't artists! My only issue was with the crummy markers that came in the set. After two uses, most of the felt tips are trashed (and we are all grown-ups playing -- not children destroying them) and the label on the markers has rubbed off.

    I was lucky enough to be chosen to host a #Telestrations, Featured Party opportunity courtesy of USAopoly Tryazon. We were going to hold our party a few weeks ago, but due to a death in the family and some other obligations we decided to have our party on July 8th. We have a very diverse group of friends and they are always ready to get together to BBQ, go swimming or just hangout. We do have a regular game night as well. While we really didn't have a particular theme, we all work together and were on summer shutdown, this was our last night of vacation. It was a perfect night to get together and finish up all the Fourth of July leftovers and party supplies. So on to the game..... It was a bit tricky at first, since we didn't have a computer handy, so we used the directions instead of the video we were provided. I was a bit confused, but we had plenty of savvy people and in about 10 minutes we figured out the concept of the game and deciphered the instructions. Once we learned how to play and got passed the first round it was not stop laughing for all the rounds we played. My friend compared it to the childhood game Telephone and it was hilarious to see what the drawings ending up as. We only had a group of 6, but I am excited to get to play it with a larger group. I can say at first, we were all skeptical since the rules were a bit confusing, but once we figured it out everyone commented on how much they liked the game and can't wait to play again. I highly suggest watching the instructions videos, this game is a great time to laugh with friends and family. I received this game for free for promotional purposes and to host a party and provide my honest and unbiased opinion. #Telestrations #usaopoly #tryazon #gamenight #summervacation

    Hosted this #Tryazon Telestrations party while family was in town and part of my daughter's 7th birthday party events. It was so much fun for the whole family. My little kids 3 yo didn't understand but still had fun. It was a bit time consuming to get started with the game at first time playing. All in all we had a great time.

    I love this game!! It's so quick and easy to learn, great for all ages, and you don't have to be artistic! I love that you can chat while playing, and it's sure to make you laugh!

    I had so much fun playing this game! I have played it with friends and family and each time it was a hit. I don't consider myself to be an artistic person however this game has allowed me to explore my artistic side. I've learned that I can draw. I recommend that people buy this game as you won't be disappointed... not to mention you will have loads of fun and lots of laughter.

    I got a Telestrations game from @tryazon for testing purposes. I was selected to host a party while introducing the game to my friends. So we did. The game I got was a party size one, made for up to 12 players. It is a really great and fun game! I thought it would be better for kids but we had lots of fun playing it. It’s so fun when our friends are trying to guess the sketch and they come up with something totally different than what it actually was. We laughed a lot! In one of the games, the secret word was BROWNIE, so I drew it (or tried at last). My friend guessed ‘Cheese eating monster', so my other friend drew it and my husband guessed 'Cheese head'. Lots of fun! Unfortunately not everyone could make it here. We invited more than 10 people to come over that weekend but they couldn’t come and let us know a day before. Sadly we were only 4 players. The game needs at least 4 players to work so we had our party anyway. I’m sure that if we had everyone this game would make all of them laugh! Can’t wait for the next game night so I can introduce the game to everyone and have a second party but with everyone. This comes with everything you need to play.

    This game is hilarious! I've never played or even heard of the other versions, so I have nothing to compare it to, but my kids & their friends had a blast with this game! The guesses and drawings brought out some deep belly laughter from everyone in the room! We love board games & anything to keep our kids off electronics, so to share this with friends & have them get their own kids into the fun was great. I'd highly recommend it to anyone who loves having game nights like we do.

    My family absolutely loves this game! It's the go to game when nieces and nephew's come over since people of any age can play it. You don't even have to be a great artist because it's much more humorous when things go awry and the pictures and descriptions change dramatically. it's like the game telephone when you whisper in a persons ear and they have to pass it on. but in this game you draw a picture and then the next person writes a description of what they see and so on.

    This game is a like a mix between telephone and pictionary. We found the rules a bit confusing at first but were cracking each other up afterwards!

    I got to try out the game for free and everyone loved the game and we were all dying laughing from the hilarity that came from the game. We had some really hilarious things come from the drawings. It’s kinda like the telephone game but with drawing/doodling. We had Crop Top turn into a Cyclops XD. It definitely is a must have for a party - everyone at the party would highly recommend :) Honestly one of the best and most creative party games I‘ve ever played.

    So we have been playing this game for a long time now and not even known it. We would take paper and cut small pieces and then hand out stacks to our friends with pens. We would then play the game, passing around the paper stacks, and love it! Now, with this, we can play without all of the work!! I love the ease of this game and how it is made We opened the box and pulled out the dry erase boards and I was in heaven. We now just pass around this durable book instead of stacks of small loose papers. This makes the game MUCH more enjoyable. It makes it so we can play longer and a little less stress. Also, when we have played it before, we would have a hard time coming up with categories. This game comes with a stack of cards with seemingly endless topics for the game. They also have blanks where you can enter your own and generic topics where you can write something specific of that bigger topic. During our game night, my favorite was when my word was BARRACUDA and my dad didn't know what that was so he drew a FLOWER!! I was dying!!

    Fun game with a group - only comment is that there is quite a bit of "quiet" time between plays while everyone is drawing. It just seems odd for a game...
    kbows More than 1 year ago
    This is an excellent game!! I got to test this game out for our family and friends game night and we all had such a fun time playing this game! My dad, who isn't a fan of games, even sat down and played with everyone and had fun! We spent the night laughing at how quickly our drawings went off course! The best thing about this game is the fact that as long as a person can read and write, they can play this game! My 6 year old loved that she could join in and have fun with all of us adults. This is a game that I would highly recommend for a family game night!

    I was fortunate enough to get to try the game-lover's game Telestrations by USAopoly through Tryazon! Telestrations has sold over 1 million copies in over 17 countries and 14 languages and been awarded: 2010 BoardGameGeek Golden Geek Award for the Best Party Game, Creative Child Magazine Game of the Year in 2011 & 2013, National Parenting Center Seal of Approval and more. If you haven't yet heard of Telestrations, let me give you a quick overview. The game combines the classic Telephone Game with a familiar sketch and guess game. The fun part is that no two people would draw a clue the same. You cannot use words or numbers. One person rolls the die; each person then writes down his/her code word. Then, when the time is up, each person passes to his/her neighbor to begin the guessing. The guess becomes the next person's secret word. The real fun begins when everyone shows the original code word and just how off-track it got. The laughs continue for as long as the game continues!

    I was nervous getting this game, but it was so much fun! It only took 10 minutes to setup and catch on for the first time (which I think is next to nothing for a new game). We got the 12 player version, and had about as many players through the time we played. It was hilarious! This game was such a blast to play, that no one wanted to stop. Telestrations is a different type of game - no real winners or losers, just extremely hilarious scenarios of people trying to figure out what the person before them drew or doing their best to draw something the previous person guessed. I am looking forward to introducing other friends and family to the game!

    So I got this through Tryazon to review and play. I was going to host a party this weekend and my house got flooded. I always have game night every week and this was not the time. So I invited a handful of family over to the hotel. I cannot believe how much fun it was. My cousin who is a little behind on learning only talks through sign language, and my dad hates games but he actually got cousin actually smiled and laughed which never happens!!! She never really ever talks and she was just a chatterbox (she's 24). My grouchy dad was even hooting and hollering. It comes with everything you need which is great-you can never really run out of equipment which is really nice. Markers are nice and saturated, even comes with little wipes to clean your dry erase marker off the pads. There's no score you have to keep so no high competition (unless u want) so its really easy to include EVERYONE. Easy instructions that I guarantee will make your family laugh. We didn't use the sand timer or dice. All in all a great game-the family that plays together stays together!!! We can't wait to play it again-and we played for like 2 hrs-nice thing about this is you can play however long you really want. Great game USAopoly.
