In the box: 50 character cards, feature board, drawing pad and pencils, 30 second timer
The object is to look at a character card for 30 seconds, turn it over so you can't see it, and draw the six features with the aid of the feature board. The six features are head, eyes, ears, nose, mouth, and extra (bow tie, flower, scarf, etc.).
The game includes a scorepad and pencils, and your finished result may look something like this.
Although it is not necessarily about the drawing, playing the game this way will take the ability to at least rough sketch. If you are keeping score, a point is given for each correct feature and a tie-breaker point is given to the person who finishes drawing first.
- Turn over the character card after studying it and present the feature board. For individuals who can't draw, allow them to speak or point to the correct feature in each category.
- Start by remembering one feature, then two, then three and so on.
- Discuss the features as you are looking at them to aid in memory.
