What is Skribbl.io
Skribbl.io is a mobile game by Target Games Pro that combines elements of puzzle, art and social interaction into a very entertaining experience. Nowadays also available on desktops, it is basically a sketching game where one of the users in is supposed to make a drawing of random word suggested by the game while everyone else tries to guess what the word is. The doodling is shown in real time, so it’s a good idea to give the correct answer quickly to score more points.
In a game that relies solely on anonymous online interaction everyone must behave properly – otherwise things can quickly get out of hand and all the fun will be ruined. This is why there is an option of voting to kick a certain player from the lobby if they are being particularly mischievous. There is also a time limit for every round to prevent too much down time.
Nothing special is required to play the game: just type in your desired name and press Play. Multiple languages and platforms (both mobile and desktop) are supported. As soon as the round starts you will see a blank doodling field and a chat panel meant for users to submit their guesses. When it is your turn to draw you will be presented with three options to choose from. When the drawing starts resembling something coherent the others will start submitting their guesses. The incorrect ones will be shown as regular text in the chat while the correct answers will be hidden. At the end of the round the scores and the answer will be shown to everyone.
How to play Skribbl.io
As the round progresses the game will suggest hints to help the players guess the word. At first only the number of characters will be displayed as blank letter boxes but soon some of the letters will become visible. You can also like and dislike the current drawing. And if you don’t like playing with strangers you can always start a private match with your friends!
This game is a great way to spend some time without feeling like you’re wasting it: your brain is working, you are socializing while improving your vocabulary and drawing skills. If you giveit a chance, you will be nailing the answers and having a blast chatting with people from all over the world in no-time!
