How to play PictoFeud


Match up tiles with the same shapes and colors

The main objective of PictoFeud is to score points by matching tiles with the same shape or the same color.

If you choose to match tiles of the same color, they should all be different shapes. If you choose to combine tiles of the same shape, they should all be different colors.

There are 6 different colors, and 6 different shapes, as shown in the image. The game can be played with 36, 72 or 108 tiles, so each tile may appear more than once throughout the game.

A line of symbols of the same color

Let's assume that Player 1 starts with a horizontal line of symbols of the same color. Yes, this can also be a line of symbols of the same shape (but different colors). And of course you can also start with a vertical line instead.

Keep in mind that there can never be more than 6 matching tiles in a line, since each shape or color has to be unique. You can, of course, start a new one after a gap on the board.

Each tile will add 2 to the total score. So, in this case, 3 tiles will lead to a score of 2 + 2 + 2 = 6 points.


A line of symbols of the same shape

Player 2 decides to add a line of symbols of the same shape. In this example, Player 2 manages to add the tiles in such a way that the pink cross is also added to the end of the line that was already on the board.

So how many points does Player 2 get? 8 points for the horizontal line (his own tiles + the ones already in the line), and 6 points for each tile in the vertical line. That makes a total of 8 + 6 = 14 points.

As can be seen in this example, a tile can score in more than one direction!

Place tiles in only on direction

Player 1 adds three purple tiles. Note that a player can only place tiles in one direction within the same turn. However, tiles can still score in more than one direction, by matching them with tiles that are already on the board.

This time, Player 1 scores 8 points for the line of purple symbols, 4 points for the line of squares, and another 4 points for the line of triangles. That makes a total of 8 + 4 + 4 = 16 points.


A complete line

Player 2 manages to complete the vertical line of crosses. As explained above, 6 is the maximum number of symbols in a line. If the symbols are the same shape, they must be different colors, and if the are the same color, they must be different shapes.

Player 2 will be awarded a bonus for completing a line. The normal score (2 points for each tile) is doubled, which leads to a score of 24 points!


Player 1 places a tile with a green triangle on a 2x multiplier cell. A multiplier doubles or triples the score for the entire line, not just the tile that was added, and can apply in more than one direction.

Normally, the score would have been 6 for the vertical line and 4 for the horizontal line. However, because of the multiplier, both of these scores are doubled and the total is 12 + 8 = 20!

This screenshot shows a game in progress, in which a human player is playing against the PictoBot mascott of medium difficulty. The tiles on the board are a pretty good representation of all the different kinds of combinations that can be made.

Swap tiles

Swapping tiles

There may come a point during the game when you can no longer make any matchs with the tiles you have, or you simply think it might be better to get some other ones. You can then decide to swap some tiles. The "Swap Tiles" can be accessed from the bottom app bar."
