Pictomania is a famous draw-and-guess game where a player selects a random card and draws the subject listed on the card within the time limit. When time expires, the other players guess what was on the card using the first player’s drawing. This redesign project features a limited edition of the game and includes a board, a box, directions, game pieces and any other necessary material.

Traditionally, each card features people, places, and things that are easy to describe through visual cues. In this special edition of Pictomania, players need to draw abstract adjectives, such as imagining what “excited” or “nervous” looks like. Players can create doodles on the whiteboard to depict the adjective clues. In this abstract world, everything depends on the focus of your creativity and imagination.
