How to play “Pass it on” game ?
Draw and fold requires a minimum of 4 players, a pen or pencil for each person, and one peace of paper for each round. It is best if everyone sits in a circle. To start, the first player writes a sentence at the top of the paper and then passes it on the player on their right. The second player then rewrites the sentence but in the form of drawings.
For example, if player number 1 wrote “I love you”, then player number 2 could draw two stick figures with a heart between them.
The second player then folds the top of the paper so that the written sentence is hidden and only their illustration is visible before passing it to the third player. This one must try to decipher the drawing by translating it into a written sentence and folding the paper to hide the drawing. Player 4 then must try and translate the new sentence into a new drawing. Players keep passing the paper around until either the paper is used up or the circuit is completed.
At the end, everyone can look at the entire peace of paper to reveal all of the answers. The final results can often be hilarious.
