Who doesn't love a good game night?? Getting together with friends, enjoying a couple adult beverages, listening (and sometimes dancing) to great music, and laughing until I cry... it's the perfect combination for a memorable night!
In the past month, I was introduced to my new favorite party game: Telestrations. Basically, it's Pictionary meets Telephone, you know, like the game you used to play in kindergarten.
And if your game nights happen with rather rambunctious groups, as mine often do, you may choose to create your own secret words rather than using the playing cards. In my experience, this is when people's true colors really start to show!
Best picture of the night: "I will NOT draw this!" (Somehow, the word "midget" turned into "child porn??". The poor guy who received that guess was meeting most of us for the first time that night He's probably scarred for life, but we all got a great laugh out of it!)
I just ordered my own game today because we resorted to making our own paper flipbooks for our last game night because the one we borrowed previously was being used. I plan to introduce it to my students next week during game time on my last day. I can't wait to see their drawings!!
Seriously, if you're in the market for a new game, this is the one you want. I promise that if your friends and family have a decent sense of humor, you won't be disappointed!
