Agile Pictionary

Chuck showed the group a fun and easy way to add an Agile twist to the classic Pictionary game by using agile events, phrases, and roles instead of traditional Pictionary words.


  • Use a flip chart paper or an online whiteboard
  • Facilitator gives one person an Agile event, role, or phrase from the list below (use a private chat or e-mail to send the phrase)
  • Artist can only draw lines and pictures (no words) while the rest of the participants try to guess the Agile phrase.   Suggested time limit of 1 to 3 minutes.
  • Start with easier ones, then add in more challenge as group gets the hang of it
  • List of possible Agile events, roles, and phrases (or come up with your own)
    • Daily Stand-up
    • Sprint Planning
    • Sprint Review
    • Retrospective
    • Sprint
    • Sprint or Kanban Board
    • Product Owner
    • Scrum Master
    • Face-to-face communication
    • Self-organizing team
