No more board games please!

Pictionary.. I am sure those who have played it will smile at the very mention of the name! I never knew that I will start liking the game sooo much! Me and darshit have tried our hands on many board games including Scrabble, Chess, Mastermind, and some we do not even remember now! And I never laughed like mad in any of these games. But Pictionary is different. If there is nothing so funny about the guess, I will still be rolling in the aisles watching darshit draw :) Ah..What a drawer he is!!!

Actually this board game is not so cheap to end up in our house especially when we already have board games piled up in one corner! But thanks to Aricent :) Darshit received some gift vouchers and the very next moment we started planning our next expenditure! For a change, me and darshit were in Crossword that evening. Ah.. I just love book shops especially Crossword. The ambience.. the pile of books.. the mild instrumental music.. and not to forget.. the recliners!! Whoa! A real stress buster! But wait!!! Where is darshit??! How can I forget.. he hates books! I found him in the games section choosing one more BIG board game. Anyways.. I had handpicked two books and was quite happy with my selection. Darshit took some time as he actually read through the rules of those big board games. Finally he zeroed in on Pictionary! He wanted to buy it! Oh Come on.. Not one more board game! I was not in mood to pour in from our pockets but two brand new non-pirated books + Pictionary! We came out holding a book and Pictionary!! I was not so happy.. obviously I wanted to buy both the books..leave aside whether I get time to read it or not.. but I love to increase the size of my book's stack!

But here I was, playing Pictionary without having my dinner and got completely involved into the game. Each guess was such a fun.. my god! I still remember when darshit had to describe me "stool". Dont ask me what did he draw and what all I guessed!!! But this game was absolutely worth the money rather worth the sacrifice of a book!

First time, I realized the importance of the expressions! I almost died explaining word "Air" by drawing! You doubt? Try out yourself. But I am sure whenever I play this game, I am going to thank god for giving me speech, expressions, good drawing skill and yes, a very funny drawing sense to Darshit :P



PS: And yeah.. do let me know ur fav Pictionary word. I have already started building my pictionary word stack ;-)

Ha ha...it reminded me of some of the blunders I have made while playing the game, though I don't exactly remember them(rather I m too embarrassed to describe them ;-) )

i haven't tried playing this game. Will shoot for it next time when I go shopping spree!

You could give a try for the word 'Expression/s' :)

Hi! Was browsing through Indi blogger and the title of yours struck me....how v.true!!!

In that case you got to try the latest funskool board game - Mahawar-treasure battle.
The special thing about the game is that it's conceptualized and designed by me and market by Funskool. So next time be it Mahawar.

:).. I feel Pictionary is more challenging than Dumb Charades and more funny too :P with my crazy drawings.. But last night me and Darshit won and only because we didn't need to draw Printer as printer or Dog as Dog or Alice as Alice [:P]

Srinivasa said...

Sounds interesting .. Not a big fan of board games but will try this next time I go for shopping ...

Darshit said...

Hehe.. Bhavik is right. Our crazy drawing skill is making this game more challenging.. the best was when Brijesh had to describe Dog, I still laugh when rememebr him trying to draw a dog. But it was awesome and great fun (Specially when me and Bhavik won it :P) !!!

@Kumar: Thats amazing!!! I checked on net about Mahawar and few more Indian board games created by IDCians :) Hats off guys!! Will definitely try my hands on playing as well as writing about it :)

@Bhavik & Darshit: We didnt had timer this time and this added to ur win but beware for the next round :P
