Mattel Pictionary Air

August 6, 2019



(Mattel $19.99)


We have mixed emotions about this new twist on Pictionary. It did not work with our big TV, so we played using smart phones. After downloading the app, players take turns sketching what their card says to draw, only instead of paper and pencils, players draw in the air and their drawings show up on their team’s smart phone. Some of our players drew too small, so their images were hard to decipher. We think if you can make it work on a TV screen it would be easier for players to get the hang of drawing in the air...but, the player is not supposed to see what he is drawing, only his team. That’s part of the challenge. It's a novelty that doesn't replace the original Pictionary, which is unfortunately not being made. Marked for eight and up but really better choice for tweens and teens.


Ages: Tweens, Teens
