The Speaker is the only community member that gets to see the “goal” drawing. The Speaker tells the Doer what to draw without looking at them or their drawing. The Speaker can communicate with the Seer to check on the Doer’s progress.
The Doer draws what the Speaker tells them to. The Doer cannot speak to any other group members or communicate questions to the Speaker.
The Seer listens to the Speaker and observes the Doer’s progress. The Seer can ask clarifying questions to the Speaker and report back on what the Doer has drawn so far since the Speaker can’t see it.
Two of the three groups will have a Reporter. The Reporter observes their group’s progress and transmits helpful information to the middle group.
Each of the Speakers will come to the Game Master to see their image of what their group will need to draw. The Speakers will then go back to their groups and describe what they saw to the Doer, without looking at them (backs turned or eyes closed). The Doer will draw what the Speaker describes to the best of their ability. Meanwhile, the Seer will both listen to the Speaker and watch the Doer, asking the Speaker any clarifying questions they might have or they think the Doer might have. The Seer can also describe what the Doer has drawn already, which is how the Speaker can check on the Doer’s progress or make any changes. This process is happening in three different groups. The two Reporters observe and record the progress being made in their groups and communicate it to the middle group. The ultimate goal is for the Middle Group to have the full picture.
After a while, the group will get to stop and discuss what changes should be made to make this process easier in the future. They will then get one more chance to complete this activity.
