# Setup

>

For each game, you need a board (to draw on) and random words. A board always has to be printed.

For words, pick the option you like best:

• Use the website on a phone while playing
• Use a board with words printed on it.

# Objective

>

Score the amount of food your board indicates. Try to do so using the least turns possible! In this cooperative mode, you all work together as one team.

You can also play competitively. Divide the players into two teams. The first team to reach half the food threshold (rounded up) wins!

>

Get new words. Look at them in secret, then pick one. Each word has a number of lines and an amount of food.

Now communicate your word by drawing on the board! Draw as many lines as the word allows. Follow the rules of drawing (next section).

The others guess what you’re drawing. Choose one of these options to limit turn length:

• Set a timer of 60 or 90 seconds.
• Or allow as many guesses as the number of lines you were allowed to draw. (Ask the guessers when a guess is definite, and only respond to those with “correct” or “incorrect”.)

Guessed correctly? You score the food attached to the word!

Now it’s your left neighbor’s turn.

# Rules for Drawing

>

Of course, you can’t just draw any way you like.

• Lines must be straight and between two points.
• Lines can’t go through another point on their way.

These are the only rules. So yes, anything else is allowed. (Lifting your pen to continue somewhere else, crossing lines, using points already used for other drawings, … )

# Sneaky Spots

>

This expansion turns the dots into many different locations! Each has a special ability or power. A location activates whenever it’s the end point of a new line you draw. Its power is active from now on ( = until the end of your turn).

Lines
Changes your number of lines (allowed when drawing) by the number shown.
Distance
All points from your drawing must be within a certain distance of each other: the length of your thumb.
Food
Changes the food you score by the number shown.
Fixed
Your drawing must be one continuous line. (No lifting the pen!)
Curve
Repel
Your drawing must only use points that have not been used already.

# Precise Painters

>

This expansion adds even more special locations, with much more wild or chaotic effects.

Add as many new points to the map (of any type) as the number shown. They can't overlap an existing line or point.
Remove
Remove as many points from the board as the number shown. (Cross them out, they're gone from now on.)
Solid
Color in a closed shape on the board. (Add scribbles, turning the area completely solid and unusable.)
Eyes
Draw one circle in empty space ( = "between te lines"). It can be any size, filled or not, but can't include an existing point or line.
Unfinished
You may use any position on an existing line as the start / end point for new lines.
Eraser
Erase as many lines as the number shown from your current drawing. (Cross them out. They don't exist, but their two points also can't receive a new line.) If you don't have enough lines, you can't use this location.

# Action Ants

>

At the start of the game,

• Each player sketches their own (unique) ant icon.
• And draws it next to any dot.

At the end of your turn, move your ant. Cross out the old drawing, draw it at the new location. However, it may only move along drawn lines by at most 6 steps.

Trap
Wings
Changes how far your ant is allowed to move (at the end of your turn), by the amount shown.
Teleport
When moving your ant (at the end of your turn), you're allowed to move anywhere!
Poison Trail
You are not allowed to go through ( = "cross") other lines.

# Coop Colony

>

Instead of one player drawing on their turn … multiple players draw!

At the start of your turn, choose other players with whom you want to share the secret word. (You can’t pick all other players, but must pick at least one.)

Starting with you, all players who know the word alternate drawing one line at a time. Repeat this cycle until the drawing is done.

The players who don’t know the secret word—and didn’t participate in drawing—actually guess it.

The player that activated this point, must finish the entire drawing on their own.
Dreamdrawing
Even the players who don't know the word, participate in drawing one line at a time.

# Antertainment Break

>

This is a variant that allows taking multiple turns for a drawing.

If a drawing is not guessed, you must resume it next turn. Write the lines and food for this word next to your current shape, to remember it.

Next turn, don’t draw a new word, but continue drawing your old one. You get half the number of lines as previous turn (rounded down).
