Combination Man

This game was invented in the 1920s by a bunch of artists. Each player draws a different part of a body (human, animal, extraterrestrial, or something else) without seeing the other people’s drawings until the very end.

Combination Man


  • Pencils or pens
  • 1 sheet printer paper folded into three or four equal parts


  • Without showing anyone else, the first player draws the figure’s head on the first section. Mark a place for the neck on the second section, so the next player knows where to start. Fold that section backward so that no one can see the first drawing.
