At Braincog Inc., we develop board games, puzzles, and other entertaining
diversions that are fun for your brain. Inventors William Jacobson
and Amanda Kohout develop games for general audiences, both kids
and adults, for family, party, and educational settings. Each of
their games combines aspects of critical analytical thinking with
Braincog's newest game, Portrayal, is a funny, fast-paced, family / party game
that tests each player's ability to describe, draw, & evaluate wacky images.
In each hilarious round of Portrayal, one player (the Portrayer) describes a
unique and utterly bizarre image while the other players (the Artists) attempt
to draw the image based solely on the Portrayerís description. Once time is
up, Artists trade drawings and the ten hidden criteria for the image are uncovered.
Itís up to each Artist to decide whether the drawing he or she is judging meets
the criteria and receives points.
30-45 minutes to play
Portrayal can be played with large groups (perfect for parties, classrooms,
or corporate team-builders). Everyone plays during every round. No one sits
on the sidelines - ever! Takes less than two minutes to learn. Unlike other
"drawing games", you don't have to be da Vinci to do well at Portrayal.
It's what you draw that is important, not how well you draw it.
Portrayal was the winner of Creative Child's 2007 and 2008 Preferred Choice Award for a Party Game.
"Until Portrayal, no one had ever created what I consider the perfect
drawing game." - Knucklebones Magazine
