The game relies on an honesty system since there are no physical cards to refer to (and shield from prying eyes) while everyone is sitting in front of the television. The person drawing selects a secret clue area, dragging it away to reveal the subject. A twinkling sound accompanies the reveal of the clue, allowing honest players to know when they can uncover their eyes or turn back to face the screen. On the off chance someone turns back too quickly or simply doesn't know how to draw the object or action, a new clue can be generated at will without penalty.
The clues are split into two piles: simpler hints for children and more advanced ones for adults to draw. The choice is available on a per-question basis, so there's no risk of locking yourself into a game too tough for the players.
The system is very easy and intuitive and there is essentially no learning curve.
All plays are drawn by the rolling/whose turn it is, is the person who draws, then both teams can guess. This board on the screen has stop signs and you have to stop and play that square, even if you roll a 5 and you only moved one square.
We just love to play pictionary at family things, but we just play the board game way. We always used to use paper, but that got messy and costly. So, instead of using paper, we just use several dry erase boards and different color markers. A whole lot better than paper by far!
Between the Wii version VS the Board game version:
The Wii is limited to little draw pad, not portable unless someone else in your family has the Wii console. The Wii version has adult or junior clues. When the clue is given, others must look away, but there is a lot of players that peek, so that isn't very fair.
Board game version, portable and you can use dry erase boards that are bigger to draw on. Both versions have to be stored.
Just love the pictionary board game, just wish the Wii version wasn't so expensive.
In the end, we prefer the board game way over the Wii game anyways. Cheaper, more clues and way more fun!
HAVE A FAMILY GAME NIGHT AND HAVE SOME FUN WHICHEVER VERSION YOU CHOOSE. EITHER WAY, PICTIONARY GAME IS FUN EVEN IF YOU CAN'T DRAW. REMEMBER, IT IS ALL IN THE GUESSING! ENJOY!
