DISCLOSURE: I received free products from Tryazon and The Op Games in exchange for hosting a party and sharing my honest review. No further compensation was provided. All opinions are my own.

Last month we held a game night and had such a fun time that we decided it should be a regular thing. So, we were pretty excited when we were selected again to host another game night. Both games were new to us. My family enjoys word games so both looked like they would be perfect for us!

Who Is The Op?

Telestrations and Blank Slate are both from The Op, a company that specializes in board games like Clue. Trivial Pursuit, and Jenga, as well as other games like puzzles and chess sets.

Party Recap and Review

We invited some family and friends to come over for the game night. We kept the menu simple with pizza, wings and mac and cheese. I bought little trophies to give out to the kids at the end.

After eating, we all gathered in the living room to play the games. We played Telestrations first.


  • Recommended Age: 12+ 
  • Number of Players: 4-8 players 
  • Play Time: 10-15 minutes per round 
  • Includes: 8 Erasable Color Coiled Sketch Books, 8 Dry Erase Markers, 1700 total words & phrases to sketch & guess (142 Cards "This Side & That Side" cards), 60 Second Sand Timer, 8 Clean up cloths, 1 Die
  • Description: Easy to learn and quick to play, this super fun game of sketch, guess and pass will create memories that will keep you laughing.
While it took a little bit to explain to everyone the rules of the game and how it was played, it ended up being really fun for everyone. 

Each player receives a sketch book, a dry erase marker and a clue card. Someone rolls the die and the number that comes up corresponds to your secret word. You write the word down and flip to the next page in the sketchbook. You have 60 seconds to draw your secret word. Then, you flip to the next page and pass your sketchbook to the player on your left. The next player then has to guess the secret word based on the picture you drew. You flip to the next page and pass the sketchbook again. And now, players have to draw a picture of what the previous player's guess was. This continues on until you get your original sketchbook back.

It was so fun to go through the sketchbooks at the end and see the evolution from the first drawing to the last guess. They almost never matched! It was also cool to see other people's drawings. Some were really good!

Everyone really enjoyed the game so much that we played it twice!

Blank Slate

  • Recommended Age: 8+ 
  • Number of Players: 3-8 players 
  • Play Time: 20-35 minutes 
  • Includes: Score Board, 8 Dry-Erase Slates, 250 Double-Sided Word Cue Cards, 8 Dry-Erase Markers with Erasers, Rules 
  • Description: Pick one of over 250 Word Cue cards (with 500 total cues), write the word you think best completes the phrase - and try to match it exactly to another player's word without giving a single hint.
Blank Slate was easier to explain to everyone how to play. Each player received a dry-erase slate and a dry-erase marker. A cue card is selected, and players have to finish the blank in the clue. The goal is to match answers only one other person. If a player matches with only one other person, they each receive three points. If players match words with more than two people, they each receive one point. If no one matches your answer you receive 0 points. The winner is the first to get to 25 points. It was funny to see what words people came up with. You could tell some were trying not to write the most obvious answer and it was funny when no one wrote that answer.

Overall, we had a really fun time! We're supposed to bring both games now to the next family gathering. The kids enjoyed just as much as the adults!
