I love the board game Pictionary! I have for played it for years and loved it for years, but have never owned my own copy. This Christmas I was thrilled to receive it as a gift from my family.
I think I love Pictionary for the following reasons:
- It is competitive.
- It is all about effectively communicating ideas.
- It encourages participants to “play” where many are insecure in their amateur skill set: drawing. (I include myself in this perceptual group.)
- Pictionary games are inevitably full of laughter and fun.
- It is all about social interaction and cooperation for a shared goal.
I know I don’t laugh enough most days. Playing Pictionary is always an invitation to have fun and laugh with others, and that is probably the main reason I love it. 🙂
