iSketch is an online game popular with Board 8ers that is essentially an online Pictionary. One player is given a word and has to draw a picture representing that word. All the other players have to guess the word within a certain time limit. If a player guesses right, the drawer and player are both awarded points. The first correct guess is worth 10 points, the second correct guess is worth 9 points, the third, 8, and so on. There are a certain number of round of this, usually 10, and the player with the most points at the end wins.
There are several different categories of words to choose from, though some are only available in rooms created by users. Among these are many video game-related categories, including:
- Computer Games
- Console Games
- Final Fantasy
- German Computergames
- World of Warcraft
There are also categories in which 2 players draw at once, one where players just draw for fun, and even some in other languages!
In user-created rooms, users can adjust such settings as the category, the number of players drawing at once, the amount of time to guess the word, a limit on the number of strokes the drawer can take while drawing, among others.
iSketch is free and does not require registration.
