In Pictures, form the image on your secret picture card with one set of components, either shoelaces, colour cubes, icon cards, sticks and stones or building blocks in such a way that the other players guess what image you have pictured:
- Pull out a marker from the bag that determines your secret picture card on the grid.
- Then form that image with your components in such a way that it is recognizable.
- And finally guess what image each other player has pictured.
The players get points for correctly guessing other players images and for other players guessing their image. The most points wins!
If you like Codenames or Dixit, you will probably like this too. And you don’t need to have any artistic flair to play!
Pictures won the Spiel des Jahres award for 2020.
For 3-5 players ages 14 and up, allow 30 minutes to play.
