Broken Picture Telephone is a game where five or more people are separated into two different groups – Interpreters and Artists – and play through PMs. The Interpreter's job is to briefly describe something, then it is the Artist's job to draw the description. Afterwards, the next Interpreter describes the picture they see to another Artist who draws it out, and so on. After the last player submits his entry, everyone switches to the opposite group and the second turn begins. Once the game is finished, the final results are shown to see how random (and funny) it can get.

  • All interpretations should be only one or two sentences long. Do not try to describe every pixel you see in the artworks.
  • All art submissions must be 512x512 PNG files. They don't have to be masterpieces, but don't make them incomprehensible either.
  • Use only personal messaging or the like for transferring your entries. Do not give hints to the next player about what to write/draw next.
  • You must not make your artworks or interpretations public. The results will be posted once all the entries have been received at the end of the game.
  • Announce as soon as you send your entry to the next player.
  • If you do not submit your entry in three days, you will be disqualified.

  • Player 1 sends an interpretation to Player 2.
  • Player 2 draws Player 1's interpretation and sends it to Player 3.
  • Player 3 interprets Player 2's drawing and sends it to Player 4.
  • Player 4 draws Player 3's interpretation and sends it to Player 5.
  • Player 5 interprets Player 4's drawing and sends it back to Player 1.
  • Player 1 draws Player 5's interpretation and sends it to Player 2.
  • Player 2 interprets Player 1's drawing and sends it to Player 3.
  • Player 3 draws Player 2's interpretation and sends it to Player 4.
  • Player 4 interprets Player 3's drawing and sends it to Player 5.
  • Player 5 draws Player 4's interpretation and announces that the game is over.
  • All players send both their entries to the host and wait for the results.

  • Additional slots are available before the second-to-last player submits his first entry.
  • The order of players will be shuffled as soon as the game begins.
  • The game has been slightly altered for experimentation. Unlike the previous rounds, the game will be played twice, so everyone gets to be both an Interpreter and Artist.
