Off Your Rocker
by STRATUS GAMES LLC

As a patient, it’s a lot of fun to learn your secret prompt and know that the psychiatrist player doesn’t know it.

Each card lists 6 items. Players roll the die and the number rolled tells them what to sketch. Each person simultaneously sketches a different item. The challenge is to draw quickly enough to grab the highest-valued token, but carefully enough that opponents can identify the drawn image. Points are gained in two ways: when one player correctly identifies another's drawing the artist gets points, and the player who correctly identifies the image gets points as well. After 10 rounds, the one with the most points wins. Launch date: June 2011. 3/22/2011 (Price: $19.99) [Add to my Inquiry Basket][?]
