What Is Pictionary?

Pictionary is a game where one person draws a word on a whiteboard or piece of paper and everyone else tries to guess the word or phrase that is being drawn before the timer runs out. The game can be played on teams or as individuals. The game is simple, but the execution can be challenging. Finding a way to draw a word that can be easily guessed can be challenging, especially if you choose a verb or adjective.

What Is Charades?

Charades is another fun party game that is similar to Pictionary in that teams compete trying to guess words, but they try to guess what a person is acting out instead of drawing. You can play in a group ranging in size from four to as many people as you want. Charades is a classic dinner party game.

How Do You Play Pictionary

You can buy the official Pictionary game, but playing your own game of Pictionary is fairly easy. Just follow these steps:

  1. Split your group into two teams.
  2. Get two whiteboards or something to draw on.
  3. Choose a person to draw from each team.
  4. The drawers take a look at the random word for this round.
  5. Set a timer for one minute.
  6. Drawers draw a representation of the word on the whiteboards.
  7. The rest of the team members try to guess the word while the drawers draw.
  8. If a team guesses correctly before the minute is up, that team gets a point.
  9. Repeat steps 3-8 until a team earns the agreed upon number of points to win.

Can You Play Pictionary Virtually?

Yes. While Pictionary is typically played by colocated players at a dinner party and uses a whiteboard of poster boards. However, given the current situation, playing virtually has become an increasingly popular option. Below are various ways to play hangman virtually.

Use a virtual whiteboard

Use a virtual whiteboard like whiteboard.fi to draw from different locations. Virtual whiteboards let you instantaneously share a drawing with anyone else who has access to the whiteboard.

The same effect can be achieved by using Paint, or other image application, and screen share through a video call.

Use an online pictionary game

There are a number of online Pictionary games that you can use our Pictionary word generator for. Just do a Google search for “Online Pictionary.” However, if you want to play with friends, there are only a few options to choose from. The following sites allow multiplayer games of Pictionary:
