Draw pictures, guess phrases

Similar to Pictionary, SketchParty TV is a multiplayer game where you draw pictures of the words or phrases displayed for your team members to guess. You have limited time to draw as many as you can while the others continue to guess. The team with the most correct answers wins. Choose from various word lists, adjust the game settings for number of words, turns, and seconds, and play with up to eight people.

What is it about?

SketchParty TV is an enjoyable family or party game where drawing is just as much fun as guessing. You can use different colors and brush sizes to make it as easy as possible for your teammates to guess. Hit the “got it” button when they answer correctly or the “pass” button to move onto the next word. Putting this game on Apple TV makes perfect sense for family gatherings or Saturday nights with friends.

For those who...

  • Enjoy multiplayer games Like drawing games Have fun with family and party games

Not for those who...

  • Enjoy action games Like standard puzzles Have fun playing games alone

Why we love it

If you love Pictionary-style challenges and party games, then you will like SketchParty TV. You do not have to be an artist and often times it’s more entertaining when someone cannot draw well at all. Just do your best and draw up a terrific time.

App Store Description

"If you like Pictionary but hate cleaning up all those scraps of paper, SketchParty TV is the game for you." - Macworld

NEW! Completely redesigned. Dark Mode. Drag-and-drop Team setup screen. Time bonuses awarded for speed. As seen in WWDC keynote!

SketchParty TV is the fun Pictionary-style drawing and guessing party game to play on your iPad and Apple TV!

You could buy an easel, a huge pad of paper, and some markers, then write down a really long list of words and make up some rules and try and keep track of points and get marker smudges all over your furniture. But who wants to do that?


You could play a fun drawing game using items you already have around the house, like your iPad, high-definition television, and Apple TV. Just enable AirPlay Mirroring, choose sides, and start a SketchParty. It's so simple!

SketchParty TV is a team game like Pictionary or "Win, Lose or Draw", and up to 8 players per team can join in on the fun. That's a pretty big party! And it's fun for ages 8 and up.

Gather up your family, call your friends, and play SketchParty today!

Note: SketchParty TV requires an AirPlay Mirroring-capable device and either SketchParty TV running on the 4th generation Apple TV or an Apple TV 2 or later to play. SketchParty TV can also be played using Apple's AV adapter or a Mac/PC app like Reflector. (See for device compatibility.)
