How to Play

Broken Picture Telephone starts with some words to describe some sort of scenario, or scene. Something as beautiful as a Ninja fighting a pirate.

It’s followed immediately with some attempt at drawing out the words. It doesn’t have to be a Rembrandt, but do your best to draw what you’ve just read. Do not write words.

Quite obviously, the next round is played by describing what you see in the picture. This is done without seeing the original set of words.

And then another picture. Avoid making your ninja’s look like astronauts…

The game goes on in this pattern. A user only takes part in a game of Broken Picture Telephone once.

No one is able to see the progression of the game until it is over. You will only ever see note from the previous round, which will either be a drawing or some words.

The last round of a game is an odd number round. Odd, because this means it will end on words.

At the end of the game, everyone is notified that the game may be viewed. If you do not want to be notified via email, you can turn this off in your account settings.

After the game is done, it enters the archive section where users can rate them.
