Chicago Game and Toy Fair Pass and Play A Round of Telestrations with the Inventor Giveaway!!!

Yeah, that title is quite the mouthful. However, how awesome is this giveaway? I am so jealous that I don’t get this opportunity, but instead, one of you will!

Telestrations is a twist on the classic “telephone game”. You all remember how that is played, right? One person says a sentence and it gets passed along the chain. By the end, the sentence is usually not what you started out with. That is exactly how this works. Everyone plays at the same time. Each player gets their own erasable sketch book, dry-erase marker and word card. A roll of the die determines each player’s secret starting word (example: doggie bag. You draw a dog and a bag.). The timer gets turned and everyone draws their word. After 60 seconds, everyone passes their book to the player on their left. Then each player takes a few seconds to guess what they see, write it down, and passes again. The timer is turned and everyone draws what they see. (This person draws a man holding a bag). This play continues until everyone’s sketch book passes by every player and returns back to its original owner, at which point it’s time to see what happened to each secret word. (The next person may think that the man with the doggie bag is a purse snatcher.) Points are scored if the last guess matches the secret word, and for favorite sketch and written guess in each book. Yes, this game is as fun as it sounds. We tried it here, and you will literally pee your pants laughing at some of the stuff that gets drawn and how messed up the original secret word gets. (The ages on this game is 12 and up. However, with some modifications, anybody who can read can play.)

So now that you are jumping up and down yelling that you want to play this, I’ve got the giveaway for you. One winner will win a pass to get into the fair on November 20th and at 2 p.m. (at the Telestrations booth) get to play against the inventor of this awesome game! The winner of the game will receive a supply of USAopoly board games just in time for holiday gifting! You will be playing for my blog (no pressure LOL). Here’s what you need to do:
