Every once in a while Sean and I play 2-person pictionary. What does this mean? It means we each take a card and draw everything on it to the very best of our ability. Then we swap papers and the other has to guess what each drawing is. A bit slower than regular pictionary but still fun. Playing pictionary with Sean is fun and interesting. interesting because he is a draw-er, see. he does it well. If i may criticize, however, this poses a couple problems or, let us say, obstacles:
1) He takes his time. As he would, normally. While 2-man pictionary is different, this is not conducive to a game that's a race.
2) He draws things that are too real. I'm not sure if i know what this means, and I don't know if i am just used to the "pictionary shorthand" i became accustomed to growing up, but he'll draw something and it will be completely unidentifiable to me because it looks too good.
3) He has a thing about size and proportion. He'll take an entire sheet of paper to draw a thimble and i'll say, "what the hey is THAT?" But i can't really think of any other examples, so maybe it was just a fluke thimble. And it's not like i expect people to draw a house to scale (unless it's a mouse house). So i don't know. This may be unwarranted.
All of that said, it is fun to play with Sean and we are usually a pretty compatible pictionary team. Usually.
Not so much the other night.
First, my drawings:
We allow ourselves to draw lines depicting the number of words. All you have to do is fill in the blank(s). Sean got all of mine except for one--pile. But that was understandable.
Anyway, kind of funny, sort of. (Good knight, Sean.)
