What You Need to Play Pictionary
You only need a few items to play Pictionary.
- Free Printable Christmas Pictionary Words List
- Large Pad of paper to draw on (use a table top easel pad to make it easier)
- Markers to draw the pictures.
- Bowl to hold the pictionary words.
- Something to use as a timer (ie: your phone)
- Piece of paper to track each teams scores.
How to Play Christmas Pictionary
This is a pretty simple game but let’s quickly go over how to play and the rules of the game.
- Print out the Christmas Pictionary words list, cut them out and fold each card over.
2. Add all the words to a bowl folded so no one sees the words ahead of time.
3. Decide if you want to play as teams or individually. If it’s a party I would suggest doing teams but for Family Game Nights you can do individual players.
Pick the teams ahead of time so you can make them more even and there is no arguing at the party.
4. Have each team decide who will go first to draw. The first player to draw picks a word out of the bowl. When the timer starts they will have 1 minute to draw pictures to represent their Pictionary word on the drawing pad.
The player drawing may not speak if they do the team loses the point for that round.
While the player draws their teammates get to yell out their guesses of what the player is drawing. If they get the answers correct during the 1 minute time frame the team wins the point.
If the team does not guess the picture the other team gets one guess to see if they know the answer. 1 point will go to the other team if they correctly guess it.
5. Rotate through all the players so that everyone gets a chance to draw. Once everyone has drawn the game ends and the team with the most points wins.
