In Subtext, players try to communicate with one another by drawing hints about the word on their card. Drawing well is not required — just being clever in selecting your hints.

  • Each round, one person is the dealer. 
  • This player looks at their word, then shuffles the card into the cards for the other players and distributes them randomly. 
  • By doing this, one player will have the same word as the dealer, but nobody — not even the dealer — knows who it is. 
  • The dealer then draws a picture, and you want to hint at your word so that ideally only the person who has the same word will understand what you're depicting.
  •  In the subsequent guessing phase, all players (including the dealer) guess which player got the same word as the dealer. 
  • Points are awarded based on the number of incorrect guesses, but the dealer and their partner have to guess correctly to even get points. 
  • How vague do you want to be in your drawing efforts to still get your message across without anyone else knowing it?
