A couple days after her real birthday, the celebrations continued. Molly opened presents from G’Mom and Grampa, including a couple of games. The first was Otrio, a strategy game that is kind of a multidimensional tic-tac-toe. It’s lots of fun, and we play it a lot.
The other game G’Mom and Grampa gave Molly was Telestrations. It’s a cross between Pictionary and telephone, where you pass a word around the circle by alternating between writing it and drawing it. The results can be quite hilarious, as you’ll see from these few pictures of us playing it.
It’s important to stick out your tongue when you draw.
As I said, this game can lead to hilarity.
Jen’s lost it.
Here are a couple of examples of why Jen can’t keep it together. In the first example, I got the word “microscope” and passed that to Leah to draw.
Leah confused microscope and stethoscope, and drew this.
Which was interpreted to be “legs”.
A second example - Jen got the word “frog”.
Leah drew this, a frog on a lily pad.
I thought the frog on a lily pad looked like a cat on a surfboard. So, I wrote “surf cat” (the obvious answer, I know ;).
It’s a really fun game. I highly recommend it.
