How To Play

A single game is comprised of a series of alternating turns that are created by players. Each turn will allow a player to either draw a picture or write some text.

When playing a turn you will see the previous player's turn to the left, and you can draw or write on the right.

When you are writing, the goal is to try to accurately describe the last drawing. When it's your turn to draw, you should try to sketch the scene that the last player has described.

Remember: You only have 10 seconds to draw or write, so be quick! When the time runs out, your entry will be automatically saved as-is.
