"If you like Pictionary but hate cleaning up all those scraps of paper, SketchParty TV is the game for you." - Macworld

NEW! Completely redesigned. Dark Mode. Drag-and-drop Team setup screen. Time bonuses awarded for speed. As seen in WWDC keynote!

SketchParty TV is the fun Pictionary-style drawing and guessing party game to play on your iPad and Apple TV!

You could buy an easel, a huge pad of paper, and some markers, then write down a really long list of words and make up some rules and try and keep track of points and get marker smudges all over your furniture. But who wants to do that?


You could play a fun drawing game using items you already have around the house, like your iPad, high-definition television, and Apple TV. Just enable AirPlay Mirroring, choose sides, and start a SketchParty. Its so simple!

SketchParty TV is a team game like Pictionary or "Win, Lose or Draw", and up to 8 players per team can join in on the fun. Thats a pretty big party! And its fun for ages 8 and up.

Gather up your family, call your friends, and SketchParty today!

Note: SketchParty TV requires an AirPlay Mirroring-capable device and either SketchParty TV running on the 4th generation Apple TV or an Apple TV 2 or later to play. SketchParty TV can also be played using Apples AV adapter or a Mac/PC app like Reflector. (See for device compatibility.)

Pros and cons of SketchParty TV app for iPhone and iPad

SketchParty TV app good for

A very fun game for multiple players! Easy to use, easy to set up, and works flawlessly! Love the ability to review the drawings in a completed game and even share them via email or printing. Highly recommend this game!
Great party game. Works well with new Apple TV and stylus. However, would like an option where audio could come from Apple Music sound. Id like to play party music for the audio option that comes from my Apple Music subscription. Sound effects could overlay. When I open this app, Apple Music is muted or stopped.
Ideal for AppleTV. Minus one star for some needs-human-grooming clues, but otherwise exactly what it needs to be.
Our friends came over the other night, and we loaded up Sketchparty on my Apple TV and used the iPad with Apple Pencil to draw. We had so much fun, making fun of each others drawings and guessing. This is one of the best synergies of iPad and AppleTV, and I cant wait to have friends over again to play.
Great game, my kids really love it. Best feature is the availability of a "kids mode" for limiting the words to those that are easier to draw. This mode is available either through the paid app or via in-app purchases with the free version. Well worth it for the younger players. Also kudos to the developer for lightning quick replies to my basic questions. Dont think twice, go buy it today!!
We bought an extra Apple TV just to play this on vacation with our friends! It rocks! Enjoy; gūt stuff!!

Some bad moments

AirPlay works elsewhere, but with this app my screen goes black, unplayable black. Looking for an inexistent display app. Developers advice? Buy the app and a new Apple TV to run it. I think not! Back to pen and paper - they dont need a hardware upgrade to work!
Whenever I connect to the Apple TV it disconnects right after and gives me a loading symbol that never goes away and makes the game unplayable. The free version works fine, but I bought the full version and Im very disappointed that I spent money on something that doesnt work. I love the game but please fix this bug!!!
Waiting ... Waiting for device to connect ------------- The update to SketchParty just posted did nothing to make the Apple TV versions of the App useable. I downloaded both SketchParty TV Free, and the full version. Neither is playable. When you hit Play the Game, all you get is a billboard that says Waiting ... Waiting for the device to connect. Below, there is a spinning indicator. It will keep spinning forever, if you let it. Its as though in Canada the Apple TV is downloading not an app made for the new TV device, but the old one made for iPads. Somebody needs to get their act together. What a waste of a game that plays nicely from the iPad to older versions of the Apple TV.
Lots of fun for the whole family or when you have friends over. A bit limited word lists, but you can add your own! :)
This could be a great game but it needs more words. The second time you play words start to repeat. Otherwise the game is a blast.
Great idea and overall a lot of fun but the app crashes about every 10 minutes and lags very often.
