Picture consequences is a circle game in which a group of people cooperatively draw a person. It takes about 20 minutes to play. It was played by the Surrealists, where it was known as exquisite corpse, although that name also described other games. The person is drawn in portions, with the paper folded after each portion so that later participants cannot see earlier portions. It has been recommended for use as a tool for teaching about tattoos. Picture consequences can be used to practice vocabulary and to encourage a class to work together. The game is also recommended as a "rainy day" game. The point of the game is the surprise reveal at the end or for simple fun.
The name "picture consequences" is also sometimes used to describe a game in which players alternate writing descriptions and matching illustrations based on the previous step.
