Scribble your way to win in CRANIUM’s hilarious new game SCRIBBLISH, which combines drawing with the “telephone” game. During the game, players have 45 seconds to draw their best sketch that represents the phrase on the game card. The first player starts by drawing what they read on a statement and passes it to the next player who has to write a statement describing the drawing. The next person turns those words into images. The scrolled-story continues to be passed around the room until all players have a chance to draw. Players read the story created out loud to find out how “this” became “that”! Earn additional points by trying to guess what the other player has drawn or by drawing the funniest picture.
I don't know what to say. Hasbro has managed to take a game consisting of simply pen and paper and add the Cranium name and a price tag.
