This week on family game night we got to try out a really fun game from USAopoly called Telestrations. It’s a really fun game that combines the fun goofy elements of the telephone game with some fun drawing tasks like pictionary. We also go to try some yummy snacks from FarmRich. We tried out their mozzarella sticks and crispy dill pickles. So yummy.
Telestrations by USAopoly was super fun. It’s like combination of the old telephone game and Pictionary. If you have never played the telephone game (I have because we played it in Girl Scouts all the time) you simple sit in a circle and then one person starts with a phrase and whispers it to the person next to them. You can only whisper it once, then they have to whisper what they heard to the next person and you keep going until it gets all the way around to the person who started and you say it out loud to see how messed up the phrase got. This is the same concept except you are drawing out the pictures and then guessing. As you can see it is a lot of fun to see what you started with and what you ended up with, it can be way off and super funny. It’s also a fun lesson for the kids about how you should also check with the original person to get the actual story because when it has been passed around through rumors it’s usually nothing like the original version.
In the box you will receive:
- a hour glass timer
- a die
- box of word cards (over 17,000 words)
- 8 dry erase pens
- 8 cleaning cloths
- 8 dry erase booklets
Who Would Enjoy This Game:
The game is designed for players ages 12 and up. However, my seven year old played with us and she loved it and did really well (better then I expected) so depending on your child’s vocabulary skills, writing skills and drawing skills younger players may find this suitable.
Designed to be played as a party game for up to 8 people. You will need at least 4 players to play. The more players you have the funner it is.
Is It Fun:
We had a blast playing it. It was fast paced. Tons of laughs. My seven year old got so cracked up at how some of the pictures turned out so different from the original. She laughed so hard at the end of each round. It’s a great way to entertain a larger crowd or family. We really enjoyed it.

One of our favorite snacks on family game night is some yummy appetizers. FarmRich is one of our favorite brands for snack foods and appetizers. They have a huge variety, they are so easy to make, and they taste great. Tonight for game night we tried out crispy dill pickles and mozzarella sticks.
These are so yummy. Crispy breading and the pickles are full of flavor. They are even better with ranch! It’s one of our favorites. Frying your own pickles can take so much time plus you have to deal with oil and frying. These you can just pop on a cookie sheet and heat up in the oven, not oily at all and the same great taste you get when you go out.
We love cheese sticks in our house, my seven year old would live on them if I would let her. These are so good and the melted cheese is amazing! It’s of our favorites. So easy too, just pop them in the oven and you have yummy mozzarella sticks in a few minutes. Just add some marinara sauce and your all set.
Where Can I Get Them:
We get ours at our local Walmart. You can visit the FarmRich Website and check their locator in the menu to find the closest retailer to you.
