uDraw Pictionary: The Ultimate Party Game for Artists of All Ages

Released in 2010 for the Nintendo Wii, uDraw Pictionary is an art-based video game that brings the classic board game Pictionary to life in a whole new way. Developed by Page 44 Studios and published by THQ Inc., uDraw Pictionary is designed as a multi-player party game for all ages, and can be played with teams of up to four people.


The gameplay of uDraw Pictionary is simple: one player draws a picture on the uDraw GameTablet based on a clue from a subject, and their teammates have to guess what the picture is supposed to represent. The game includes more than 3,000 clues, with traditional Adult Clues like Object, Difficult and Action or Junior Clues like “Animal Houses” and “At the Zoo” for younger players.

uDraw Pictionary differs somewhat from classic Pictionary, as the video game has new draw modes. The normal Pictionary mode lets users play the game show-style on a 3D game board with a variety of drawing tools, brushes and colors to choose from for a livelier sketching experience. Pictionary Mania has a custom game board and seven new draw modes, including Get It Straight, Shape It Up, Rotation Frustration, One Line, Ink Limit, No Peeking and Off Hand. Free Draw lets players use the drawing tools in the uDraw GameTablet to create works of art.


  • uDraw GameTablet: The uDraw GameTablet is a pressure-sensitive tablet that comes bundled with uDraw Pictionary. The tablet allows players to draw, color and sketch with a variety of tools and brushes, and is also compatible with other art-based video games like uDraw Studio.
  • 3D Game Board: The 3D game board in uDraw Pictionary adds an extra level of excitement to the game. Players can move their characters around the board, and the board itself will change depending on the game mode.

  • Variety of Clues: With over 3,000 clues to choose from, there’s always something new to draw in uDraw Pictionary. The game also includes a variety of difficulty levels, so players of all ages can enjoy the game.


uDraw Pictionary received mixed reviews from critics upon its release. Some praised the game’s innovative use of the uDraw GameTablet, while others criticized the game’s lack of originality and repetitive gameplay. However, the game was a commercial success, selling over 1 million copies worldwide.


uDraw Pictionary is still played by many people today, and is considered to be one of the best party games for the Nintendo Wii. The game’s success spawned two sequels, uDraw Pictionary 2 and uDraw Studio: Instant Artist, both of which were released in 2011.
