Bible Pictionary with SketchParty TV

Sometimes we like to play a Bible game as part or our Family Worship evening. Bible Pictionary is a great game where one person picks a bible word from a hat/bowl/etc and then draws it on a piece of paper while others try to guess the word. We found a great iPad app that makes the game even more fun to play. The app is called SketchParty TV.

You need to have an iPad and an AppleTV that is hooked up to your television. You connect the iPad to your TV wirelessly using the built in AirPlay feature. Once setup you then run the SketchParty TV app.

One player holds the iPad and a Bible word will display on the iPad. Using the iPad the player then draws a picture based on the word. The picture is displayed on the TV while the player is drawing (but not the Bible word) and the others try to guess it. The game has a timer so you have to try and guess a set number of words within the time limit. You can skip and go to another word if you get stuck. The game even allows you to play as teams.

SketchParty TV comes with a basic list of simple words, but allows you to add your own custom word list. We created a Bible word list and use this list for the game. You can download our Bible wordlist on your iPad (see link below) , open the wordlist.txt file and then copy/paste the word list into the SketchParty TV app. You go into the setup for the app and create a custom word list. Just paste the text into the word list and save it. Now select this as your word list and start the game.
