PICTIONARY PHOTO GALLERY
Pictionary is a charades-inspired word-guessing game invented by Robert Angel with graphic design by Gary Everson and first published in 1985 by Angel Games Inc. Hasbro purchased the rights in 1994 after acquiring the games business of Western Publishing before eventually selling the rights to Mattel. The game is played in teams with players trying to identify specific words from their teammates.
This is one of those classic party games that has been around for a long time. It makes perfect sense for a communication game to be limited to what you can convey via drawing and Pictionary takes advantage of that perfectly.
We have not reviewed this game yet but you do not need us. This game has been around for over 30 years and is synonymous with the combination of drawing and games. It still holds up today because it is a simple game that does what it does better than anyone else.

PICTIONARY HOW TO PLAY
Clues are given and one player on a team at any given time must convey that clue through drawing. Players gain an edge if they have a good imagination when guessing, empathy for their teammates, and/or a general ability to communicate in restricted circumstances. A board is provided, just to keep score on, which focuses the competition.
