The fun drawing-and-guessing party game for Apple TV!

SketchParty TV is a high-tech drawing game that plays a bit like Pictionary®. It's great for parties or family-get-togethers, and even for teaching vocabulary or just about any subject in the classroom.

Proud to be featured by Apple in the 2016 WWDC Keynote, on Apple TV in "New Games We Love" and in its collection of "Greatest Party Games" in more than 20 countries!

Works with Apple TV

Using the native tvOS app from the Apple TV App Store (or via AirPlay Mirroring), you can turn your HDTV into a Wi-Fi drawing canvas (and super fun, high-tech party game).

Team Setup

A truly social game

Choose your side. SketchParty TV™ is a team game, and up to 16 players (8 per team) can join in on the fun. It's pass-and-play, so you only need one device.

Finger or stylus

SketchParty TV is designed for your finger, but it plays great with a stylus. Like the Apple Pencil for pressure-sensitive drawing. Better drawings: better guesses.

Playing the Game

SketchParty TV is a drawing game for two teams of up to eight players per team that plays a bit like Pictionary®. The standard gameplay settings give each player five words to draw in two minutes, and each player gets two of these two minute turns. With six total players, a full game can be played in about 30 minutes.

Make Your Own Word Lists

SketchParty TV is great for schools. It features a built-in Word List Editor and making your own lists is easy.
