Price: $19.99
Backseat Drawing is a fun, fast-paced, game of quick drawing based on instructions given to the Artist from a Director. The Director selects a picture card from the deck and using only shapes and direction must carefully and accurately describe to the Artist how to draw the image pictured. (draw a horizontal line one third of the way up the board, draw a circle 45 degrees to the right ….) The viewer(s) and the artist compete to see who the first will be to correctly identify the picture. Sound simple? It’s not. For the Director, this game is an extraordinary exercise in speaking clearly, concisely and elegantly accurately. For the Artist, it’s all about attentive listening.

In team play, the pace picks up. Two Directors and two Artists compete to describe and draw the same picture. The first team to correctly identify the picture wins. Great fun (and learning) for the whole family.
