Playing Pictionary may remind you of Charades, but with drawing on paper instead of acting out the answers. And the monkies always love a game (or two) of Pictionary. Even more so now that the game comes in a refreshed Singapore Edition!
The rules remain the same though - one team simply tries to come up with the answer that the designated drawer is doodling before the timer runs out. When any team lands on the 'All Play' square (marked by 4 pencils), chaos ensue as every team will be drawing the same clue and striving to be the first to guess the correct answer.
But the part which probably stood out for me was the inclusion of words and terms that only true-blue Singaporeans would know. Words like these.
You can’t get more uniquely Singapore than that! In fact, the monkies were not familiar with some of the words like 'Mee Siam' and 'Kueh Lapis' which provided the perfect teaching moment. And speaking of the monkies, they could not wait to get started on the game!
Yes, even Ale joined in the fun as well. She can't really draw out the words but she definitely can guess the answers. In fact, I teamed up with her to take on the boys and she was out-guessing the boys effortlessly. Oopsy.
Okay, so maybe my drawings made more sense than the boys' but then again, bad drawings and wild guesses are half the fun in Pictionary.
The great thing about the Singapore Edition of Pictionary is it comes with 2 levels of clues - a set of 1,200 words for adults and another 800 easier clues for children. Yup, double the fun! And that can only mean one thing - there is no running away from yet another round of Pictionary when the weekend comes around.
