Pictionary RoCkS!!!!

Pictionary is our family game…..:-) we play it every time we have a family gathering….!! Luckily since my favorite cousins are in Mumbai…..and all other cousins are close by in Gujarat and they keep coming down quite often and thus we have these Pictionary sessions @ family gatherings quite often….(manage at least once a month!) and I win almost all the  Pictionary rounds!! (maybe that is why it is even more fun!!)

Today was one such session……

And while we were playing Pictionary….and screaming…creating a racket….fighting….suddenly it clicked to me that Pictionary is so much more than simply having fun…

When you pick up a card….you have like 1 min to draw the word on the card  and convey it to your team…..you start with a strategy may to draw the word literally…..but mid way you realize it is not working…..you have to think on the spot….and have a different strategy….beak the word…rhyme the word……by hook or by crook….convey the meaning to your team!!

It is fun…..it teaches you to think on your feet (actually bum…cause you almost always sit and play)…it teaches you to think of an issue(the word in this case) from different angles….to change a predefined strategy mid  way…..communicate clearly even though u cannot talk….

Pictionary Rocks….if I ever become a trainer like a intend to….and I  have to conduct  a workshops on “quick thinking” ….I will sure use Pictionary as an activity!!!

Pictionary rocks…..and my family rocks….to have Pictionary as our family game…..well maybe it should become our national game!! ( ok I know this is stupid….but what the hell…this is my blog…I can say stupid things and get away with it!!)

So have you ever played Pictionary…..!!?? Share your experiences with me….and if you have never played Pictionary…..boy you are missing something ….get up and go do it!!!

Pictionary Rocks!!!!!
