BGWS 044 – Board Games with Scott – Portrayal

Portrayal is a party game where players draw what they are told. (13:53)

Time for something lighter! This is a party game from a small publisher, Braincog, and I really enjoyed it. While you draw in the game, it’s not like a traditional drawing game. Make sure and have pencil and paper ready so you can Play Along with Scott.


Note – I’m still calibrating my new studio, and there are some times when the audio goes a little funny.
