Pictionary is a fun drawing game for all ages. Players draw a word and their team must guess the word. The team that guesses the most words correctly wins.

What You Need to Play

Set Up

  1. Form two teams. Each team should have at least two players.
  2. The teams must determine the following before beginning to play:
    • Difficulty level(s) to use in Wordraw (eg. Easy, Medium, Hard)
    • Time limit to draw (generally 1 minute)
    • Number of rounds or number of points required to win
    • If hand gestures allowed
    • If guessing part of a word counts as a point
  3. Select one team to draw first. This is the first drawing team.


  1. On the drawing team, select a player to draw first. For each new round, a different player will draw.
  2. The non-drawing team will use Wordraw to select a word to draw.
  3. Show this word to the drawing player. Do not show his/her team.
  4. Once the drawing player has seen and agreed on the word, you’re ready to start the turn.
  5. Start the timer and the drawing player starts drawing the word. No talking, letters, words or numbers are allowed. Symbols ($, +, etc.) and erasing are allowed.
  6. The drawing team must guess the word being drawn. Any number of guesses are allowed.
  7. The turn ends when the drawing team guesses the word or when the timer runs out. If the word was guessed correctly, the drawing team scores a point. If the word was not guessed, the drawing team does not get a point.
  8. The next turn begins and the next team becomes the drawing team. Repeat the above steps.
  9. The round ends when all teams have drawn once. Start a new round and repeat the above steps.
  10. The game ends when the required number of rounds or points have been reached. The team with the most points wins.
