Picture+This Picture-Word Board Game
The hilarious word-puzzle party game.
Grab some friends and flex your minds with Picture+This, the party word-puzzle game. Your goal is to solve the clue word or phrase pictured on the card. For instance, a picture pointing to the last of six pennies would be code for "The Sixth Sense".
Each of the 144 double-sided cards has pictures representing a clue word or phrase in one of the four categories: people, places, clichés, and entertainment.
You have 45 seconds to solve your puzzle and you can ask your teammate for clues, although this reduces the number of points you can win. So, work quickly, ask for clues judiciously, and don't falter as time dwindles away in Picture+This: The Picture-Word Game. Ages 12+.

Endless "doh!" moments await you!
Your goal in Picture+This is to solve your picture-word puzzle before time runs out. This may seem easy until the pressure is on and your opponents are watching.
All of a sudden, you become fixated on the same word... or begin inventing non-sensical ones. Check out the image below. We'll supply your head voice: "Briefcases! Open briefcase! Closed briefcase! Brown briefcase! Brown beefcake. Beefed cases. Beefcake! Cartman! Argh!"
It's going to be a really good time. Trust us.
Four varieties of cards
Each picture-word puzzle represents one of four categories: entertainment, places, clichés, and people. Use this information along with the "grammar" of Picture+This to solve your puzzle.
For instance, spaces between pictures always indicate separate words or names and a plus sign (+) between two images means they are part of one word.
Stumped? Ask your teammate for help!
On each turn, one teammate is the clue giver and the remaining members are the word guessers.
If you find yourself thoroughly stumped, you can ask your clue giver for assistance. The clue giver cannot say any of the words or portions of the words in the answer. However, they can provide clues such as "sounds like", suggest expanding or shrinking a word or phrase, propose reversing the order of words, or indicate that a small word is missing.
Please note that each clue given reduces the total number of points you can win for solving the puzzle. Each turn begins with a total of five points and each clue costs one point.
There's no medal for 2nd place
Prudent use of your clue giver is instrumental in winning Picture+This. If your opponents are solving each puzzle sans clues, they'll move five spaces per turn.
So, if you want to keep pace or beat them to the finish line, you best elevate your rebus solving (rebus is the fancy term for word puzzles).
You've only got 45 seconds to decode!
You'll be amazed at how fast 45 seconds can pass when trying to solve these puzzles. It's especially demoralizing when your opponents heckle your diminishing time. Some seriously entertaining "answers" tend to be tossed about during the waning seconds of a Picture+This turn.
Enough clues for many a game night
Picture+This includes 36 double-sided cards per category. That works out to 72 clues per each of the four categories for a total of 288 word puzzles.

Instructions, which are included, are not pictured.
