Drawful is a series of drawing games created by Jackbox Games. The name plays on the words "draw" and "awful", which implies that the game will get crazy and the drawings will be bizarre. Players must draw an image for a strange prompt they are given, while also trying to guess what everyone else drew.
Drawful is one of the suggested games in the The Jackbox Party Pack. The game follows a basic structure of players receiving prompts and having to draw said prompt on their devices. All players will then see the other players' drawings in turn and come up with a fake answer for that drawing. Afterwards, players then need to guess what the actual drawing is from the answers on screen. If they guess the correct prompt, both the player that drew the prompt and those that guessed it get points. If a player-suggested answer is chosen, only the person who wrote it will get points.
Depending on the number of players, the number of rounds will change. There is also no "Final Round," so after all drawings have been seen, the player with the highest score is crowned the winner. Additionally
The game draws many similarities with Fibbage, in that players come up with a fake response and then need to find the correct one. Also similar to Fibbage is the 'thumbs up' system, where after choosing what you think is the original prompt, you can then select your favorite responses.
Drawful 2 added a couple of new features to the existing Drawful game. Players can use two colors, answers can be removed, and players can create their own question packs. Players can also create GIFs of their favorite drawings. Drawful 2 increases the number of prompts by 50%. Additionally, an audience feature has been added to allow people aren't in the game to play along. There isn’t an eraser.
Drawful Animate is the third game announced in The Jackbox Party Pack 8. Players are able to make animations.
- A running joke with the series is Jackbox Games' reluctance to add an eraser feature. This joke has been carried over into other drawing games in The Jackbox Party Pack series.
