What do you do if you are supposed to quickly draw the left side of Queen Elizabeth II? You draw half a crown, a dress ... but already everybody but you has shouted stop and you only just started to draw the Queen's face. And you still wanted to draw Buckingham Palace in the left corner ... Now it's up to your left neighbour to save you both. Unfortunately, you hear her mourning once she reads whom she's supposed to draw. But maybe some good idea will strike her?
"Well, a person with wings and a mask, but no bat, spider's web ... alright, this has got to be SPIDERMAN!" Grats, you score two points!
But how about the other two drawings? "Some strange hunter? Or rather Robin Hood?"
And what about the one on the right hand side? "A doctor? With a suit. And why is his face painted that way? And what does that obelisk in the back mean. Something about da Vinci??? Or what? Maybe something about the church? A black man? Well ..."
The artists are enraged, as they drew every characteristic of Martin Luther King. But it did not help, because nobody guessed whom they had drawn. So they both lose a point.
4 and more players try simultaneously to recognizably draw one side of a person chosen before. If you are ready, you shout "Stop!". The slowest player must not finish. Fold the sheet, and let your left neighbour complete the right side of the person chosen - without looking at the left side.
Monstermaler ist the perfect game for the party, for warming up or cooling down and for people who don't like games. By the way, it's rather a disadvantage to know how to draw when playing Monstermaler.
Monstermaler comes as a pad of 120 sheets (size A6). The German rules are printed on the inner side of the cover. Add a pen and if needed a shade for every player.
