Skribbl io is the newest multiplayer drawing game on the internet where players have to guess words drawn by another player. It is inspired by the original drawing game Pictionary. Join a lobby full of players from all over the world and try to draw the chosen words as good as possible so the other players can guess it. One player is drawing at a time while the other ones have to guess the correct word by typing it into the chat window on the right. If you found the correct answer your name will appear green in the leaderboard on the left side. In Skribbl.io you will earn points for the correct answer. Of course the first player to guess the right word gets the most points followed by the second and third and so on. Each player can draw 3 times in total and the one with the most points after the game ends wins the match.
Skribbl io is an online io game which means you have to play against real players you can even communicate with. As a hint this drawing game shows you the amount of letters of the solution word right above the drawing panel. After a certain time some letters will appear to help you and the other players to guess the correct word. To be honest you don’t need these hints if the drawing is good enough! With that being said try to draw as precisely as possible.

The concept of Skribbl io is to draw a word as a picture and not to simply write down the word. If you are inactive and don’t make predictions for a certain period you will be automatically disqualified from the game. This is to make sure that every player is actually playing the game.
Tips and Tricks
Choose easy words to draw. Be aware of the time limit.
Use object related colors, for example red for drawing an apple or blue for drawing water.
Before you make a guess take a look at the amount of letters the solution word has.
Use the ‘fill tool’ instead of coloring entire parts with the brush.
Simple and clean is better than being detailed! You are not drawing a masterpiece and have to be aware of the time limit.
