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 creative expression.

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
