Create a doodle and pass it to your partner, who has to turn it into something recognizable. Then it's the artist's turn to challenge you with a doodle. This game is perfect for restaurants, doctors' office and other venues that call for a quiet diversion. If you have a big group, seat everyone around the table and pass the doodles around. Pass across the table one time, to the right the next time. For a little extra flair, create the original doodle with black marker, and use colored markers to turn it into a masterpiece.
