Ready? Set? Draw! The newest version of Pictionary for Wii lets players draw sketches in order to guess clues.

The classic group game Pictionary has been brought to the Nintendo Wii. The game utilizes the uDraw Game Tablet, which presents a new world of art, imagination and play for Nintendo Wii. The tablet is a revolutionary game system that allows players to draw images using a pressure-sensitive stylus. The Wii remote snaps into the tablet, allowing uDraw to connect to the Wii system. Players then use the stylus to move the cursor across the screen. The uDraw Game Tablet is lightweight and can easily sit in the lap of a child or adult.

Pick a Clue

Players can choose between regular Pictionary or Pictionary Mania. In Pictionary, you can compete with two teams, three teams or four teams. You can also choose the length of game you want to play.

The goal of the game is to get your team piece around the game board to the last square. Teams share the tablet and pass it back and forth between turns. This family friendly game lets the player choose whether they want an adult or kid clue each turn. The rest of the team turns their head away from the TV while one person looks at the clue. This person then uses the tablet to draw the clue, just as one would on a piece of paper in real life.

Mania, Mania

Pictionary Mania takes the game of Pictionary to a whole new level. The goal of the game is still the same as the original: to get your team to the last square of the board. But, this time, the squares are much more complicated. Instead of just drawing a sketch, players are given an extra challenge. For example, if a team lands on a red square they must draw with the hand that they don’t usually use. Each color of square has a different challenge.

In both games players are able to choose the type of tool they use to draw. They can choose from tools like pencils, spray paint and markers. Players can also choose the color they use to draw their sketches. The uDraw Game Tablet adds a whole new element to this classic game. With over 3,000 clues to choose from, no one will get bored of playing Pictionary.
