Event description
Sometimes things get lost in translation, and that’s half the fun!

About this event

We will be playing an online party-game “Gartic Telephone”, which is a mix of Pictionary and Telephone.

Players will join on Zoom and then be provided with a unique URL to play the game in small groups. We will explain how to play on the day or you can visit our conference website for a guide to the game. Players will alternate drawing and guessing until we reach the last turn, and discover whether we’ve all been drawing the same thing, or whether we’ve been drawing at cross purposes! The first person might start drawing a hamburger, but the last person may have been drawing an armchair with a cow on it: crazier things have happened… So, get those trackpads and mouses at the ready and be prepared to have a laugh! This will be a great way of informally networking with attendees of the conference and to have a bit of fun. There will be prizes in the form of £10 retail vouchers for the funniest misunderstandings!
