What you need

- A place to play where people can draw comfortably
- At least six people
How to play
This game is a twist on Pictionary—it gets your legs moving! This speed-filled game involves drawing, guessing, and running!
To start, everyone needs a piece of paper and a pen or pencil. Each person makes a list of items under one category.
This is what you will be drawing later in the game so try to make the items harder, so it's more interesting to draw.
Games are a perfect way to bring family or friends together!
It's more fun when the lists are different and interesting. The categories can be anything from blue things to children's books.
Each list should have six items. Don't show anyone your list once you're done.
Everyone gets into groups of three or more people. The groups go to separate areas so they can't hear the other groups.
Choose one person who will be the leader and present his or her category first. The leader stands in the middle of all the groups, so all groups are equal distance from the leader reading the category.
The leader tells everyone in the game his or her category.
All groups send one person each to see the first thing on the leader's list that they will have to draw for their teammates.
Once the leader says “Go,” each drawer goes back to his or her group to draw the first thing on the leader's list. Drawers in all groups are drawing the same thing
You can't use words or symbols in your drawing.
Once someone in a group correctly guesses what that group's drawer has sketched, that person runs to the leader to get the next item on the leader's list.
All groups keep going back to the leader every time they've guessed what their teammates have drawn. The first group to draw—and correctly guess—everything on the leader's list wins.
We play 12 rounds because my family has 12 people and we want everyone to go, but you can play as many rounds as you want.
This game can get pretty crazy between guessing what people are drawing, and trying to run and get the next word before the other teams get it!
