If you want to incorporate Pictionary in your event, you can buy official cards and follow the rules. However, you can make it more fun by creating your own Pictionary game and even personalizing it based on the occasion. All you need is a judge, timer, paper, pen, index card, and dice. 

The usual game goes like this: one member will roll the dice and draw an index card with the Pictionary word. Then, the other group members have 60 seconds to identify the word, depending on its difficulty level.
