In a mashup of two fun and classic games, this Telephone meets Pictionary adds another dimension. Telestrations® - El Original is completely in Spanish. Not simply a translated page in a rule book; the entire game.

Dibuja lo que ves, luego adivina lo que viste. ¡Todos los jugadores dibujan, pasan, adivinan y ríen simultáneamente para revelar resultados divertidos e impredecibles!

In other words, "Draw what you see, then guess what you saw. All players draw, pass, guess and laugh simultaneously to reveal fun and unpredictable results!"

Designed for groups of 4 - 8 players ages 12+, this laugh out loud challenge is not a competition. Each player gets a sketch book, a marker and a word card. One player rolls the die, matches that number to the word order on the card, and writes the word on her sketchbook, without divulging the word to others. Depending on how many are playing, next steps vary as to sketch the word yourself, or pass the sketch book to the player on the left. Players then have 60 seconds to illustrate the word. Players then flip the page to hide their drawing and pass their book to the player on the left, remembering the color of the spiral on their sketchbook. And the secret guessing begins. The sketch, guess, pass routine continues until each sketch book is returned to its owner. Results are revealed, laughter is shared, and everybody wants to play again.

With 1700 words generic enough to accommodate those from different Spanish speaking countries, our bilingual family testers enthusiastically recommend Telestrations® - El Original to any family who speaks, reads and writes in Spanish—and to teachers encouraging students to do so.
