How to Play St. Patrick's Pictionary


1 person from a team will randomly choose a clue from a container.  Without showing the clue to anyone they have 5 seconds to look at the clue and then begin drawing.  A one minute timer begins when they start drawing.   They try to draw the clue on the paper while their team members are yelling out guesses as to what they are drawing.



How to Set Up the Game
Print out the St. Patrick's Day Day Pictionary clues (below) onto green paper. 

Cut apart the clues into separate clues.


Fold the individual clues so that no one can see what the clue is from the outside.  This way players will not be able to see what clue they are choosing from the clue container.


Place all the St. Patrick's Day clues in a decorated container or bowl. 

Give each team:
paper and markers


or set up one easel with a large pad of paper at the front of the room.


Divide the group of players into 2 teams.  Roll a dice to decide what team will go first. 


The team that goes first will choose one player to draw for the team for that round.   Their team members will try to guess what item, object, saying or song they are drawing.

The player drawing will choose a clue from the clue container without looking at it. 

The player drawing for their team will have 5 seconds to look at the clue before their time starts. 

Set a timer for  one minute.  It's a good idea to have a set timekeeper for both teams that can keep track of when time is up for both groups.  


The player drawing will have 1 minute to draw the clue while their team members yell out answers and try to guess what is being drawn.  The person drawing can not use any words or any motions. 


The team can shout out guesses until they guess what is being drawn.   If they guess the clue within 1 minute they get 1 point.


If the team does not guess the clue within the 1 minute time limit  then the opposing team has 1 chance to steal. 

The opposing team has 10 seconds to discuss among themselves the best guess for the clue.  Then they have 1 chance to get it right.  If they guess the clue then they get 1 point.


Play to 15 or 20 points or longer if time allows.   Decide what the winning score will be before the game begins.


Change the player that draws for their team on each round so that everyone will have a chance to draw clues at least twice.



For smaller groups:
Instead of two teams St. Patrick's Day Pictionary can be played with one person drawing until one player in the group guesses the clue.  Then the player that guessed right is the next drawer.
