From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Pictionary is a guessing word game invented by Robert Angel with graphic design by Gary Everson and first published in 1985 by Angel Games Inc.[1] Hasbro has been the publisher since 1994 after acquiring the games business of Western Publishing.[2] The game is played with teams with players trying to identify specific words from their teammates' drawings.


The team chooses one person to begin drawing; this position rotates with each word. The drawer chooses a card out of a deck of special Pictionary cards and tries to draw pictures which suggest the word printed on the card. The pictures cannot contain any numbers or letters, nor can the drawer use verbal clues about the subject he/she is drawing. The teammates try to guess the word the drawing is intended to represent.
