Hold The Phone


What It Is: A quirky board game that’s one part Pictionary, one part childhood game ‘Telephone’. The idea is simple. You start by picking a keyword that you’re supposed to draw – Pictionary-esque. You then pass your notepad to the next player (while receiving someone else’s). They have to guess what you drew in a few words, then draw their own interpretation of it. The books are passed around the table until they make their way back to the original artiste – when you can all reveal your hilarious interpretations of who drew what. There’s a regular version and an adult version if you please!

Who It’s For: Your board game-loving niece or nephew, to bring to their college dorm. Your parents, for a family friendly game at the lake. Your favourite couple friends, as a host gift you can break out.

What It Costs: From $23.95

Where It’s At: I found both versions on Amazon.ca
