Mixed Messages (DSiWare)

Game Profile

Mixed Messages is the hilarious party game of mixed-up miscommunication. Sketch a picture to capture your friends' sentence, or try to figure out what in the world they've drawn.

You might start with, "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog" and end up with "A crazy surfer outruns flying sticks of dynamite while his fans cheer!" Two to 21 players take turns writing sentences and drawing pictures to pass along a message. This isn't a game about winning and losing - it's all about the funny miscommunications that happen along the way. You'll laugh when you see just how wacky things can get. Get together with your friends and mix it up.

Activision's DSiWare debut leaves a sour taste in the mouth.

Mixed Messages could be classified more as an experience than an actual game, since there's actually no clearly-defined goal. You basically just alternate typing sentences and drawing pictures to try to match each other in an attempt to keep the original...

I'm glad it came out so soon after being announced. I'd love to give this a try with friends if I had a DSi.

I played this game (pen and paper version) for the fist time some weeks ago with a bunch of friends, and everybody had a blast. I think it's totally unnecessary to use a video game system to party play games that don't require video game systems at all

Why do companies insist on publishing traditional party games as video games when no video game system is required to play it?

Seems like more companies just want to ca$h in, D'oh!
