Sketch Online is a Pictionary type game that takes place in a chat room. To get started you create a screen name, add a photo and pick a room. The rooms are divided by language and topic (such as types of animals, objects etc).
Each player takes a turn sketching the item given to them. As other players sketch it’s up to you to guess what the item is. If you get it correctly you and the sketcher get points. The answer is kept hidden until the end of the round. As the turn of sketcher goes around, it will eventually be your turn to sketch. You can choose between different colors, different size brushes and there’s even an option to clear the entire board if you need to start over.
