Some of my favorite funny family moments involve Pictionary and people guessing the oddest things similar to Jess calling out, "BABY FISH MOUTH!" in When Harry Met Sally, and strangely enough When Harry Met Sally actually makes several classic Christmas movie lists.  My favorite is the New Year's party at the end:

Harry Burns: I love that you get cold when it's 71 degrees out. I love that it takes you an hour and a half to order a sandwich. I love that you get a little crinkle above your nose when you're looking at me like I'm nuts. I love that after I spend the day with you, I can still smell your perfume on my clothes. And I love that you are the last person I want to talk to before I go to sleep at night. And it's not because I'm lonely, and it's not because it's New Year's Eve. I came here tonight because when you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.

Some of the things you love most about people are the weird things because it's completely out of your hands.  Granted, you might hate it at first, but it will all start to slowly grow on you like a fungus without a cure.

So in honor of When Harry Met Sally, love, friendship, cherished family games, and how the holidays can bring all that together, I'd like to present Sketchy Christmas which ought to cause a few chuckles and hopefully create some wonderful holiday memories.

I don't see the instructions on how to play the game. It sounds so intriguing - would love to understand.

Just download the PDF (Sketchy Christmas Minimum.pdf or Sketchy Christmas.pdf) in Step 1. The instructions are on the first page of both. :)

Awesome game! Thanks for posting this. We are playing the minimal version now - ages from 7 to 49. When we get fanatical enough about it we might make the fancy version as a family project.
