Squiggle is free to play.
How to play
It is a piece of cake to start playing Squiggle. Just follow these three simple steps.
Start a new Squiggle
Create your Squiggle, start your camera and get your unique access codes and invite link.
Invite your friends and family
Share your access codes or invite link with the people you want to play Squiggle with. Your Squiggle is private and people can only join if they have an invite.
Once your friends have arrived start squiggling! Whatever you draw on the interactive canvas will be instantly visible to everyone in real time.
You can play any pencil and paper games with Squiggle. Here are some of our favourites:
Great on touchscreens
Squiggle works brilliantly on touchscreen devices, especially tablets. It is very intuitive for kids to draw with their fingers.
Nothing to download
Free to play
Inspired by lockdown
Squiggle was inspired by watching my two children trying - but struggling with - the strange new, awkward world of limited interaction through conversation-led Zoom calls.
I realised I could recreate the pencil-and-paper experience online and create a safe space where loved ones can still play with, talk to and entertain the children in their lives wherever they are in the world.
Squiggle is free to play, but we need to charge for some features to help us keep the lights on.

Word on the street
Squiggle has been enjoyed by many people already. This is what they said:
Squiggle has allowed my kids to have hour long calls with their grandparents instead of 5 minutes. Free childcare!
Mum of two
I love seeing my grandchildren and their big smiling faces when we play Squiggle together.
Grandmother of four
I love playing Squiggle with my friends. I'm the best at noughts and crosses now!
My children are so much more engaged when they play Squiggle compared to Zoom. It's lovely to see.
Mum of two
I love watching granddaughter draw and create. She's too young for proper games, but she loves making pictures with me.
