Sketch Party TV
A fun game can often breathe life into a dull party. SketchParty TV is similar to Pictionary, but played on an iOS device. Using AirPlay Mirroring, everyone at the party can follow the game on the big screen.
SketchParty TV is a team game. The game supports up to 16 players, with 8 on each team. The active player is presented with a word on the iOS device, which is not displayed on TV. The player attempts to draw the word on the device, which appears on Apple TV. There’s only a limited amount of time to guess the word. The game keeps track of players, timing and scoring, making it even easier to play than Pictionary. After all, people want to have fun at a party. SketchParty TV removes the burden of being responsible for scoring, timing, and other mundane aspects of a Pictionary-type game.
