✏ About Draw & Guess

Draw & Guess is a creative drawing game where up to 16 players... draw and guess!

Each player receives a word and draws it without using characters or numbers. The next player guesses the word behind the drawing. Then another one draws it again! The twist is that at the end of these cycles, the final player must try to guess the original word.
