Telestrationsthoughts and comparison to Scribblish
This game is great! All components are well made, books erase easily and markers last a good while. The game itself is fun. Draw and picture, interpret someones picture, and draw someone's written interpretation. Of course as this goes on, things get messed up, don't translate how you think they will and some people are just very literal. All this leads to lots of laughing and enjoyment as the books are read to the group. Everyone is laughing at some point in the game.
If you are deciding between the regular game and the 12 pack, get the 12 pack it is always better to have extra. I was surprised how many more times we used more then the 8 would have allowed us to use.

Compare to Scribblish ( I have played both multiple times). The game concept is the exact same as Scribblish is modeled from telestrations. For me and my wife, Telestrations is better because
1. Passing the book in a group circle works better then the scriblish way because you don't get the same on multiple times.
2. The books work better then the roll ups. You get a bigger drawing surface, and we have never seen previous pictures, which has happened on the roll up if it slides out a bit.
3. The words work a bit better then phrases. Although you wouldn't think so is can be harder to keep a word going then a phrase (but this is really pretty minimal difference).

Both games are fun, but between the two I recommend Telestrations.

Very fun party game a must have in my opinion if you are looking for one.
