Each player is assigned one of the pictures on the four-by-four grid of cards on the table. You then use your materials to create the image as best you can. You score points for how many other players guess your picture correctly and you get points if you guess other people's pictures.
You then pass your materials round to the next person and go again with your new set of items. This continues until each player has used each type of materials. This repetition is more than a means of moving the play along, as you develop a language about the pictures you have in front of you that enables you to use your materials in more nuanced ways.
Pictures is a game that's simple to understand yet offers some really deep play as you learn to work with the different sets of objects. You are forced to use unusual forms of expression and each material set feels really distinct from the others.
- Demonstrate on picture attempt and let players guess out loud.
- Introduce the different material sets.
- Ensure you place the Pictures tile at the bottom of your creation so other players can orient themselves.
