Luck of the Draw » Sessions » Our first play - on Christmas Day!

Author: Jrtolf
This morning for Christmas my wife gave me a copy of "Luck of the Draw: A game for the Artistically Challenged". Which fits me perfectly. We took it to my parents house and after lunch we broke it out and played our first game. There were seven players: Lynda, Peggy, Ruth, Wade, Ginger, Alice, and myself.

In this game you turn over a subject card with three subjects on it. You then roll a special dice to determine which subject you have to draw. You then turn over a sand timer and have 45 seconds to draw the subject. After the 45 seconds are up you gather the drawings together and mix them up. Then someone lays them out in the middle of the table for all to see. Each drawing gets a colored marker placed on it.

Then you turn over a categories card to find out what to vote on. Some of the category cards say things like "Most Absurd" or "Most likely to prompt the question "Which side is Up?"" That is what you vote on. Whoever gets the most votes wins that category card.

In order to win with seven players you have to score 4 points. The game was very fun. We laughed at each others drawings, we laughed at our own drawings, and we all had a great time. This is a fun game, as long as you don't take yourself seriously.

The final score:
Lynda - 4 (She was the best artist in the group)
Ginger - 2.5 (She was the worst artist in the group)
Ruth - 2 (good artist)
Wade - 1 (good artist)
Me - 0.5 (bad artist)
Peg - 0 (bad artist)
Alice - 0 (bad artist)
