PERSON DO THING
Person Do Thing is played by taking turns to describe a “target word” (shown at the top of the screen) using only the 36 basic words in the PDT word bank. You will need to get creative, using the simple words in funny combinations to get your message across. You've completed a turn when your audience guesses the target word.
You: Big place.
You: More no-big.
You: Like but no same. Hot and no have person.
You: Yes, yes!
Your audience can guess any word at all, but may only ask questions using the words from the word bank.
You: Big place
Audience: Big place with many person?
You: No no no. Big hot place with no person.
If you are playing PDT for the first time, please check out Beginner Mode for some easier target words and added hints.
A popular way to play PDT is for one person to describe a target word until the group has guessed it, then pass the device to the next person. The next player gets a new target word by pressing the circular refresh button next to the current target word. The game continues in this way as long as desired. You can switch to Timer Mode for added pressure.
To play PDT competitively, divide your group into two teams and set the game to Timer Mode. The first team selects one player to go first and gives that person the device. When ready, this player presses the Start Timer button and tries to get their team to guess as many words as possible before the timer runs out. Each correctly guessed target word is worth one point, and you can set a winning score (e.g. 20 points), a fixed number of rounds, or simply play until a victor has emerged!
