NEW! Completely redesigned. Drag-and-drop Team setup screen. Time bonuses awarded for speed. As seen in WWDC '16 keynote!
SketchParty TV is the fun Pictionary-style drawing and guessing party game to play on your iPad and Apple TV!


You could buy an easel, a huge pad of paper, and some markers, then write down a really long list of words and make up some rules and try and keep track of points and get marker smudges all over your furniture. But who wants to do that?


You could play a fun drawing game using items you already have around the house, like your iPad, high-definition television, and Apple TV. Just enable AirPlay Mirroring, choose sides, and start a SketchParty. It's so simple!

SketchParty TV is a team game like Pictionary or "Win, Lose or Draw", and up to 8 players per team can join in on the fun. That's a pretty big party! And it's fun for ages 8 and up.

Gather up your family, call your friends, and SketchParty today!

Note: SketchParty TV requires an AirPlay Mirroring-capable device and either SketchParty TV running on the 4th generation Apple TV or an Apple TV 2 or later to play. SketchParty TV can also be played using Apple's AV adapter or a Mac/PC app like Reflector. (See for device compatibility.)

Engadget/TUAW and Mac|Format Magazine Editor's Choice app. As seen on ABC, Macworld, Fortune, Mashable, Techcrunch, Gotta Be Mobile, MacStories, iMore, Touch Arcade, 148Apps, The Loop, and more.
