Oodles of Doodles

Oodles of Doodles is based on the celebreties drawing game of the 80s–Win,Lose, or Draw. The game is

  • Fast moving
  • Fosters team play
  • Doodle categories range from very easy to difficult
  • Artistic ability helpful, but anyone can doodle

The goal is to get teammates to guess as many items on the list as possible in 90 seconds.Play begins when he "doodler" chooses a card and places it in aplastic card-holder. Everyone sees the category, but only the"doodler" sees the list of eight items.

The "doodler" only has 90 seconds to draw clues to the items on the list. The items are simple to draw, so the challenge is as much on teammates’ guesswork as it is with the doodler’s artistic ability.

Game contains category cards, cardholder, doodle board, dry erase marker, dry erase eraser,90-second timer, scorecard. Each item is numbered and has a corresponding square on the Doodle Board.

Although the artistically inclined will blossom with this game, it isfast-moving fun for the entire group.In fact, the less artistic drawings are often the most amusing.

If you are looking for a good group game, Oodles of Doodles is faster moving and produces more chuckles than Pictionary. It’s a delightful game for a party or group of 3 or more.
